Scimitar SE6 a/b Project

Looks good :D Unless my eyes deceive me I notice you seem to have a two-rod gearbox - not a problem in itself, just worth remembering that they were never fitted to the 6-series cars, so if you ask gearbox-related questions, it's worth stating that, otherwise you may get confusing answers! :lol:

1974 Dealers list

Also, I noticed that one of the cuttings that Chris posted included Taylor and Crawley as "Distributors for the dazzling new Scimitar GT 'E' " They are certainly still around, if you follow historic motorsport you'll be familiar with Taylor and Crawley and their boss David Clark, but they operate in...

however deep in the grey matter two companies are recalled but I don't know if they were official agents - Black and White Garages in Bournemouth, and Bradshaw Webb in Birmingham.
I'm fairly sure I remember Bradshaw Webb as Scimitar Dealers?

The ViaRETRO Scimitar SE6a

Ah well, that's interesting - 40 is Celtic Brown, implying that it was originally that colour, though it's not now. Celtic Brown is a more "chocolaty" colour - this, (Terry's, now Tom's) is Celtic Brown: http://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/download/file.php?id=31338 181 is RHD, with manual transmissi...

The ViaRETRO Scimitar SE6a

But just to clarify, which part of the VIN reveals the cars factory colour? And which number would Russet Red be? Taking the VIN plate posted by Chris (DarkStar) earlier, as an example, that number is 7D5318802726 Which translates as follows: 7D = April 1977 build date 53 = Russet Red paint 188 = L...

Weren’t SGT in London a Scimitar dealer? I seem to remember they did some international rallies and had a car with a personal plate (SGT) on?
I think I remember them advertising in Slice at one time?

RAC - Customer loyalty penalty

After the debacle of the RAC's failure to send roadside assistance for my breakdown this summer, it's most unlikely that I will be renewing. :evil: The main decision is where to throw my money next.......

Historic Road Tax

originally painted in Quartz Green It has been sprayed still green but as of yet not been able to find the colour match. I will have to go to local paint factors to get the colour microscope on it That's the best bet for a good match, as whatever it is, it will probably have faded a bit since it wa...

That's handy, as it confirms the typo in Don's book where 52 & 53 are transposed.

Addition to the above - coincidentally, Chris has just confirmed in this post that 53 is Russet Red, so that confirms yours as quartz green :)
