Only Fools and Horses three-wheeled yellow van driven by Del Boy and Rodney fetches £36,000 at auction

A THREE-wheeled van driven by Del Boy and Rodney Trotter in Only Fools and Horses has fetched £36,000 at auction.

The 1972 yellow Reliant Rebel Supervan III was bought by the BBC when the comedy began in 1981.

It was one of a fleet of six used during the show’s 22-year run.

The van’s bodywork had been painted to appear scuffed and has the words “Paris, New York, Peckham” and “Trotters Independent Traders” on the side.

Included in the sale was a roof rack holding a market trader’s suitcase, fluffy dice, a “Tax in the Post” sign and an inflatable doll in the boot.

After Only Fools and Horses ended in 2003, the van was sold off.

It has just sold to an unidentified enthusiast at Silverstone Auctions in Ashorne, Warwicks.

Manager Gary Dunne said: “Cushtie. It’s a slice of British comedy history.”
