Reliant 1963

Regal
Sabre

Great Britain

Reliant Sabre 6 Sports was launched in the autumn of 1962. Differences from the Sabre 4 includes a six-cylinder, 2553-cc, ohv engine, shorter bonnet without an air scoop, a wider, mesh radiator grille with division bar, modified rear wheel arches and twin exhaust pipes_ The Sabre 4 was given the Sabre 6 bonnet and grille during the spring. An FH Coupé GT version was introduced at the start of the year.

A Reliant technical artist, G. E. Pepall, won an award in a coachwork design competition at the Show. Maybe he will be allowed to design a new body for the Sabre. The front suspension is now by wishbones. The title of the ugliest car at the Show must have gone to the Sabra Sussita which is built by Reliant for an Israeli firm.
