The Reliance was a single-deck bus chassis with mid-underfloor-mounted engine. It was a long-lived model. The first two prototypes were built in 1953. Production was started in 1954 and the  last bus was built in 1979 and entered service in 1981.

Various AEC engines and transmissions were fitted to the bus.

The Reliance competed with Leyland Tiger Cub, Leyland Leopard and later Volvo B58 during its production.
