The RMB Gentry is a British kit car styled to resemble an 1950's MGTF. It was offered for sale to the public by RMB Motors of Barwell, Leicestershire from 1974. The company was formed by Roger Blockley who had worked for Triumph. The car was built on a modified Triumph Herald chassis supporting aluminium over marine ply body tub with an aluminium bonnet, engine bay sides and 'fuel tank', with fibreglass wings and doors. This RMB Gentry is registered as a 1984 Triumph and is based upon a 1962 Triumph Courier, driven by the Triumph 1200cc Herald engine. The original buff logbook for the donor car is present as is the V5C registration document. Presented in red coachwork with black trim, this lovely example is offered with low mileage OF 28K which is believed to be correct. It sits on 15" TR2 wheels that have just been blasted and repainted and fitted with a new set of tyres. This Gentry is clearly a labour of love with great attention to detail and quality of workmanship. The builder even managed to design a stow away area for the soft top for much improved neatness of line. It was built 1981 to 1984 but hardly used after completion. It was stored from 1986 to 2018 and not used. After a 32 year rest the car was recommissioned for the road this year. The car benefits from a recent full service which included all new fluids, a new clutch and brake refurbishment. 2014 marked the 40th anniversary of the Gentry and over the years they have received quite the following, this is detailed in numerous copies of the Gentry Journal club magazine also supplied with the car. Also accompanying the car is full wet weather gear and picnic basket rack. What better way to enjoy the summer than with this attractive little sports car.
