Oily rag was offering one in the for sale section for the very reasonable price of "sensible donation"

Sounds like the ideal candidate to be.
No engine or box unfortunately 🤔

SS1 1600 (wanted)

I'm possibly in the market for a rough but mechanically sound SS1, preferably a 1600. My main interest is in the mechanicals, no interest in any panels, hood, lights or anything like that, even chassis condition isn't that important.. If there's anything about for me to mull over that would be great...

Sabre or Ashley

I was there. The 5a was withdrawn, everything else seemed expensive to me. Though I did regrettably buy something non scimitar 🙄

2 Scimitars in large auction of barn find collection

Fair enough that does sound more than dodgy! 4 IDs though? Presumably the vin plate and reg number match? What are the others, etched glass, engine block number? Vin plate is made up, pure fantasy. Reg plates are for another car. Windows are etched with another reg. Chassis number matches the windo...

It's currently registered stolen with an insurance company. It has 4x different ID's on the car. It's being looked into in more detail by HPI. I can only pass on the info in order that it helps peoples decisions on it.

I can only advise. I've checked it thoroughly, in person, via HPI, the club register, DVLA, and it's not coming up smelling of roses. . HPI are double checking their info, but can take up to 5 days to come back. As it stands it wont go on the road again so bid with that in mind.

My guess is you have to inform to auctioneers. As it is not legal.

But then the car could get crushed (if the police have time to pursue it) and valuable spares are lost, which seems a shame.

Not sure if it makes a difference, but it seems the auctioneers bought and own all the cars.....or so the discussion went when I was there. It's a fairly unprofessional outfit TBH.

XPP521M and OLW467P

XPP all seems to tally with the register, OLW isn't on there so no records.

2 Scimitars in large auction of barn find collection

Its definitely an early 5a, but it's on the wrong plates, wrong vin, wrong chassis number. Nothing matches.....plus other things that come up when HPI checked on the various ID.
I'll be bidding on it as scrap, as 99.9% sure it wont get on the road again legally.

After looking today and having my suspicions, please be warned that the silver se5a is carrying a false identity, and should be regarded as spares only!!
