FS: Straight Six Coupe

It just kills me that I don't have the funds for this right now... :cry: It would sit so nicely between my pale blue '63 Rochdale Olympic and my aubergine '78 Scimitar SE6a. I wish you best of luck with the sale - while I secretly hope you struggle long enough for me to stomp up the monies... :wink:

The ViaRETRO Scimitar SE6a

Yes Phil, I see now that I should perhaps explained the gasket failure a little better. It was indeed between one of the cylinders and an adjacent waterway that the gasket gave up - it was just between cylinder 2 and 3 that this happened. Hope that makes a little more sense?? Glad you approve of the...

The ViaRETRO Scimitar SE6a

Hi everyone, My apologies, but it's been rather quiet from my side lately. Life has thrown a few challenges my way in terms of suddenly finding myself without employment back when Thomas Cook Airlines went bust towards the end of September and then having to relocate for a new job and so on and so o...

Brown side panels for centre console

Gents, to be honest I'm not even sure whether my current centre console is the bonded type or whether it consists of separate items. Is there a way in which I can easily check - without disassembling the whole thing? And more to the point, let's say mine consists of separate parts, is there any reas...

The ViaRETRO Scimitar SE6a

HaHaHa ... a bearded centre cap - now there's a novel idea! Might have to try that one day... :lol: Geoff, I haven't found the reflections to be blinding in any way thus far. But as you say, on a positive the Moto Lita doesn't creak, and it generally just feels a lot more sturdy and substantial. Im...

The ViaRETRO Scimitar SE6a

There's another update on my Scimitar on ViaRETRO - this time concerning choice of steering wheel.
Did I make the right choice?

Se6a “number 3”

Looks great indeed! Glad to hear you’re driving it - they truly are Grand Touring Estates. I haven’t been a Scimitar owner for long (yet), but mine has already excelled on a proper 10-day roadtrip back to Denmark and then return to Blighty. Also been down to Bicester Heritage twice which is a decent...

Yes, that is the Tan. I will have a look in my bits, but not confident I have any. As a long shot, you could use Vinylkote to recolour any that you can find.

SSG - Painting & body repairs

Hi Dave, I'm guessing you're still in business? If so, would you consider doing a few minor local repairs to my SE6a? For the most part the paint is really quite good. Not concours, but then, I use my Scimitar as a year-round daily, so I don't want concours anyway. However, there are a few bits that...

Is that tan or chocolate?
I would probably say it's more tan than it's chocolate, but you tell me...?

I’m afraid I don’t Anders - I saw this on Facebook. I’ve corrected the colour and added the redesigned C post info, thanks.
All good Jim - thx... :wink:

pop-up headlights NOW INCLUDING HIDDEN HEADLIGHTS

Amusingly Jim, we recently featured an article on the Vignale Jensen on ViaRETRO: https://viaretro.com/2019/02/vignales-nova-star/ You wouldn’t happen to know the current owner of the car would you? I would be terribly interested in having a chat with him! Perhaps for a follow-up article... :wink:
