The Bohanna Stables Nymph was a kit car produced between 1975 and 1977.

The kit was initially launched with high hopes. In a collaboration with Chrysler to supply Hillman Imp mechanical components for the Nymph, BS produced the kits. Chrysler hailed the car as a competitor for the Mini Moke, sales of up to 4,000 kits per annum were hoped. 

The Nymph was mechanically based on the Hillman Imp and used pretty much all that it could from the donor car. The engine and suspension were bolted to the GRP monocoque. Optional extras included doors and a hard top.

Before production could start, Chrysler pulled the plug on the Imp. This meant that the dreams of selling 4,000 kits a year went down the plughole. Attention turned to kit sales but only 42 were reported to have been sold before the company lost interest. After the failure of the Nymph, BS went back to designing cars rather than making them.

Kit prices for the Nymph were around £380.
