Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - BUYING & SELLING - RICHARD BAR­NETT MAR­KETS ED­I­TOR

‘Re­liant’s baby sports car is one of those ones that got away – if proof was needed that the clas­sic mar­ket is fickle, there’s no bet­ter ex­am­ple than the SS1. Highly com­pe­tent in ev­ery way (be­ing pretty well-en­gi­neered and built) and with a choice of en­gines, the cheeky SS de­serves a much greater fol­low­ing, es­pe­cially when you see what great vaule they are. Clearly sup­plies are lim­ited but it re­mains a mys­tery quite why some peo­ple would rather have cer­tain other British sports cars than this com­pact de­light. Prices have re­mained es­sen­tially static over the past five years where val­ues for sim­i­lar sports cars, such as the Mazda MX-5 and MGF, have both seen sig­nif­i­cant rises.’
