The RMB Gentry was a kit car that was produced between 1974 and 1989.

The car was the work of Roger Blockley, who initially made a one off MG TF replica based on a Triumph Vitesse chassis at home, (Roger worked at the Triumph factory). Soon after he finished it he had requests to build others. In 1974 RMB Motors was born. 

The Gentry was based on the Triumph Herald chassis, on top of which a metal frame was fitted to which wooden inner panels and aluminium GRP outer panels were fixed. A Spitfire version came a year or so later along with the option of a custom built chassis. 

The Gentry was a big hit with many hundreds being sold during its run between 1974 and 1989. The project then passed hands to SP Motors. The Gentry was to receive upgrades to accommodate Ford donors such as the Escort and Sierra.
