2 Scimitars in large auction of barn find collection

Dave the Police national computer weeds out stolen vehicles after a fixed period and subsequent checks would not show the vehicle status. HPI companies piggyback various databases to carryout their checks so that is maybe why the "stolen" marker on the HPI isn't showing on your check. The insurance ...

2 Scimitars in large auction of barn find collection

this isn't the only vehicle in the auction that has the wrong "plates" attributed to it, there are other enthusiast groups describe the same issues. To be fair to the auctioneers they point out this issue to prospective buyers and explain there is no paperwork or identity guarantee with any of the l...

Type 9 into a Gtc

I have converted a number of scimitars to a type 9 boxe as the original gear change can be like steering porridge. I have a just finished my second GTC which I put a capri 2.8 five speed and bell housing in, this has a cable clutch very easy to fit. The props for all my conversions, be it my se5 or ...

For Sale - 1983 GTC Auto with LPG Conversion (Previously Owed by Bill Sims)
