The name Rejo has been created out of the initials of the company’s founder Rod Easting and John Osbourn. Easting and Osbourn created the company in 1957 and soon built their first race car, the Rejo MkI. The Rejo MkII followed soon after and was the first one-off built with fully enveloping body, a rugged space frame chassis and independent rear axle. This was raced in 1959 and was also used on the road. At about the same time the company made another car for the Inglis brothers. This was different in that it had a restyled rear end and became the first MkIII.
It is believed that only a handful of MkIIIs were built between 1959 and 1961. The car offered here was built in 1960 and was owned by the factory, most probably as Rod Eastlings personal racing car. As per the FIA papers
