GTC presumably?

Do you have a picture? I have one of unknown origin in my box of small sports boot latches.
Jim mine are the same on the GTC as fitted to a GTE.

SE5 Project - Identity Unknown

Reinstatement of an original registration number can be extremely difficult as you are finding. As Jim has stated Q is still issued for kit cars but also for cars that originate from several donor vehicles. I appreciate that you have proved the age of the chassis but that chassis number on your vehi...

Just copy and pasted this one 303476742270 and it's still there at £900. This one 303477377351 I did the same and it says Item not found.
Regards Terry H
this is a genuine advert he altered the price and mistakenly listed it twice, which is why it is still showing as an auction.

Middlebridge type Engine

:shock: chances of a middlebridge being broken are zero but it is likely some of their owners will have spares. EFI was fitted to a number of vehicles from scorpios's to TVR's so joining a couple of their groups/forums might turn one up. The EFI engines I have used in the past came from various sour...

Scimitars in a Gilbern book!

Perhaps swimming against the tide here - but I like them. My brother had a Mk2 Invader in the early 80's (immediately after having a SE5) and, to me, it looked great. The Mk3 Invaders have always seemed to be the most desirable, but I much prefer the shape (and wheels) of the Mk1 and 2 Invaders. no...
