1979 GTE FOR SALE £1,995 (20 YRS DRY STORED)

Post by kirandstv » Sun Oct 14, 2018 8:31 pm

Sadly the time has finally come to let go of our wonderful low mileage Reliant Scimitar GTE E which has been garaged for the last 25 years & requires recommissioning having been dry stored. Pictures are available upon request.

Vehicle was purchased my father in law in November 1983 & used as a local daily driver until garaged in approx 1993 due to company car arrival.

This is a very rare opportunity to purchase a genuine original example that has low mileage & history.

Folder full of old invoices, mots, receipts. Original service & handbook. Workshop manual.

Colour is original Trafalgar Blue. Manual gearbox, with overdrive.

The O/S/R wheel is the steel spare the car does have the complete set of original Wolfraces alloys.

Please be aware that the vehicle has not been started for the last 25 years and will require removing from our garage & trailoring away.

VEHICLE IS LOCATED NR SILVERSTONE.

Please phone Steve on 07964 043364 (no texts) if you require any further information.

Bit harsh saying that, have you seen the car, paint may be in 1st class order if properly stored at 14 years old, similar for the interior and most of us know the costs of restoration of those elements of a scimitar


SE4c rebuilding. SE5a similar it seems!

I agree with Crosser, no one will pay 2k for a non running SE6 A or B that has been sat for 25 years irrelevant of the paint condition which is unlikely to be great condition. I see your point about not making assumptions though, unfortunately there are some assumptions you can make with a high probability.


I break stuff...... :w
