Blue Se5a for sale in Bunbury (WA)

Post by tanuki » Sun Mar 06, 2016 9:00 pm

Ran into this ad, and thought it may be worth having it recorded under the Aus/NZ section rather than the dedicated Sale links area :?
It may give visitors of this section a better chance to discovering one of the aussie Scimis :wink:

That looks rather nice, apart from the glove box/dash top - and the misplaced (SE6a) 3.0 badge.
How much would that be worth in Australia?

Yes, I agree, generally it looks a very presentable car. Dash top has presumably caught the Australian sun! Just one thing - no 3.0 badges on an Se6a :wink:

What is it from, then, I had 3.0 badges on on mine until I changed to V8 ?
Perhaps I pinched them off a Crapi ...

That's a Capri/Granada 3.0 badge.

Ok, I never said my cars were standard.
Strangely, I came across these badges the other day when I was looking for something else.
If anyone wants them, they wouldn't cost much to post ...

While sorting papers this morning, I found a bunch of paper prints that Chris Leroy did when he was hunting
for his Scimitar 6 years ago ... among which this 'Scimitar sighting' that I knew I had seen somewhere before :lol:
Anyone from Oz recognize their car ??
Cheers,
Fred

Just as a matter of interest for anyone who may have been following this thread ...... The car sold fairly quickly to Mike Norman, who lives in Bunbury, WA (about 200kms south of Perth). The sale price finished up at $8,500 (about 5,400 Pounds Sterling) which is close to stealing it in my view - but then I'm a bit biased about these things and I'm of the view that Scimitars are vastly undervalued. I haven't been able to get down to Bunbury to meet Mike and to view the car, mainly because my wife is afraid that I'll make him an offer that might get accepted, but I am hoping to take a road trip sometime in the next few months.

Thanks for the update! Well done to Mike on his purchase, and please do keep us informed on how it gets on :D
