1981 Plymouth Reliant K car, unrestored original in and out, 57,000 MI car , documented ownership history, two owners from new, original title and owners book included.
Just featured in Hemmings Motor News and just completed a cross country road trip this past week (see links below).
Couple of unique features, the one year only combination Chrysler/Plymouth grill emblem was only used on this car in its initial year, car has a new exhaust system that has been updated with split tailpipes and twin exits with a stainless steel Muffler and has a nice mellow sound. This car also completed the southern rally which is a recreation of the Smokey and the Bandit run that goes from Atlanta Georgia to Texarkana Texas and back car did the trip in 21 hours and 52 minutes. This is as basic as you can get for a Reliant K car, no options except AM/FM radio and cloth seats if you look at the original purchase price of the car on the back of the title(see pic) the car was about $6,370 including tax when new, that these cars retailed about $5,900 before any options do the math and that's about right. This car has no options like I said no air conditioning no power steering no power brakes, it has manual windows no power locks, no tilt wheel no cruise control no delayed wipers. It does however run like an absolute sewing machine gets 25 to 28 miles to the gallon on the freeway goes down the road like a brand new car, has a brand new set of tires on it, and the car was just serviced today.
I just completed a 2,400 mile trip across country with the car this past week, documented it with Hemmings Motor news and they covered it on their website, the car absolutely did not skip a beat I would have no reservation getting in this car turning around and going back cross country again it runs and drives that good. Everything works and functions like it should, headlights high beams low beams, turn signals, brake lights, interior lights, everything that the car is supposed to do it does like it's a new car, or as a new K car would be let's say.
Car was purchased brand new on November 25th 1980 at Lionetti Chrysler Plymouth in Akron Ohio by the original owner. Car was garaged from day one never used in foul weather and it shows, 100% original paint and interior, Underside is clean and dry and rust free car was impeccably taken care of and stored inside always. Original owner was getting too old to drive stopped using the car a few years back, it' sat in the garage, started occasionally but not daily driven for a while. It was sold last October to the second owner who went through the entire car and started using it sparingly. In February of 2022 he took the car on the Southern Classic Rally and the car proved itself as a solid road trip automobile.
I purchased the car this past month drove it cross country to bring it back to Phoenix documented the entire road trip on a few Facebook group pages and Hemmings Motor News covered the story.
So that brings us to where we are now the car is being offered for sale and it is ready for the next owner to enjoy it's next Journey Down the Road.
