I've been driving my 86 Reliant wagon all over lately and with the 5 speed it's been getting over 30 MPG consistently. (I did a tank at 36 MPG the other day.) So of course when I came across this 88 Reliant 5 speed wagon that matched I had to go get it...

As you can see it sat under trees for a while.







Yes, the rear end was facing north...





But it cleaned up pretty good. Most satisfying car wash ever.





Some maintenance, brake repair and tires and it should be good to go.

Not many of them left here in MA. That's a great find, and the interior looks great! How much did you pay for it?

Heck of a deal, and a pretty nice looking station wagon to boot.

Paid about what a scrap yard would have.

Nice looking whip, man. I don't think I've ever seen a manual shift wagon here in Tennessee.

That is a cool find. I've always wanted a 5 speed manual K-car. For now, I just make due with my 4 speed automatic '93 Spirit 3.0L.

hub caps... plz
I know, right! It has a set of factory ones but I hate the 88 plastic/metal style. I'm putting together a set of the older all metal ones for it so it matches my other 5 speed wagon.
