This van is instantly recognisable and probably the most iconic van to appear on British Television thanks to the renowned British TV sitcom ‘Only Fools and Horses’ and now you can take it around the Scalextric track. It might only have 3 wheels - or 2 and a guide blade but this van will give any Scalextric car a run for its money around the track. This will make an ideal gift for any Only Fools and Horses or Scalextric fan and then for the racers this is a whole new driving experience.
This 1967 Reliant Regal Supervan III served the Peckham branch of Trotters Independent Trading Co from the 1980’s. The main purpose was for the transportation of goods from dealers to the markets however despite only having two seats was often used as a family mode of transport for the Trotter family. Over its working life the van aided in the transportation of hundreds of pounds of ‘hooky clobber’ and three generations of Trotters from Grandad through to baby Joan Trotter. The original named driver was Derek Trotter however as the family and family business grew other vehicles were introduced into the fleet and his younger brother Rodney Trotter often utilised this mode of transport. This van had a limited cost to the business as it cost nothing in repairs, servicing, and general valeting. It also appears to have spent most of its life exempt from Road Tax due to a delay in the tax disk arriving in the post.
