This newspaper article, published on June 5th, 1982, is the first advertisement for the super-rare micro truck called Jimp, of which only 67 were ever produced.
“The Jimp is based on the Reliant Kitten chassis and has a Reliant 850cc, ohy petrol engine, driving through a standard Kitten four-speed gearbox to the rear-axle, but its manufacturer, PK Manufacturing Ltd, is not part of the Reliant Motor. PK Manufacturing is a small concern which up to now has specialised in restoring vintage cars.Unlike the grp bodied Kitten, the Jimp has a steel box section frame body with aluminium panels. The 1.22m (4ft) square load area has a two-piece exterior quality plywood floor. In this country, the Jimp is available in kit form at prices from around £800, or as a complete vehicle at £3,250 plus vat.”
