White '79 SE6a in St Malo

This one rings a bell, and it's back again on Le Bon Coin ... not many details though :?

I can't identify it for the moment, I think I have a white 6a with vinyl roof on file but it's not in St Malo.
The car has obviously spent some time in that barn, but not enough to justify the mileage.
And you'd think they might make the effort to clean it up a bit (and close the bonnet) if they expect 8 000 euros for it.
The car for sale in St Malo before was a Jersey-registered 5a ...

This is the one I was thinking of.
It's an old picture and the owner at the time Pascal Gouel doesn't want to play with Scimitar France.
But it was in Normandie.
On the other hand it had a side rubbing strip and the car for sale doesn't.
There is another white car with vinyl roof which Erwan Rissel spotted at Rennes (same region) but the roof is brown.

Incidentally the car on the right in that picture was bought by Philippe Doublet of Calvados and is now in splendid condition.
Seen here at the Bielles de Mai meeting in Viré alongside his GTC.

This is the car I saw at Rennes on April.
I think this pictures were taken before the seller bought it and cleaned it.

The car seems to be in very good condition, brake and fuel systems are new, registration is French.

The owner told me how much he bought it... he realised a very very good bargain !

Indeed, I now noticed this other thread
So the new owner has in fact become a new seller, right ? It's a shame he put some old pics on his ad :roll:
it would be much better to show a new series of pics of the car as it is now, in particular at this price :wink:

Yes, I talk to the current owner-seller. :D
According to him, the previous owner thought the car cannot be registered in France... that was the reason of a very low price, which is an old souvenir !

Bonne journée

He should have tried harder to sell it in France (on Scimitar France for example ;-)
There was someone looking for an SE6a but he has bought one in the UK.
I notice the bonnet is still open ...

Maybe he was trying to sell a bit high (8000 euros) for a 6a ... even in France :? ?
The grass is about the same height ... maybe pics from the same series (although the other cars in the back have disappeared) ?
Or maybe just the bonnet does not close :oops:
