Easy route in to sprinting this year - if you have £6.5k

Be good to see it competing again in the SSSC!

A lovely car, no reason why it couldn't keep up with the infamous red rocket

Strikes me as being cheap - just look at the main parts listed.

Not road legal but probably could be. Suspension might be a bit hard. Almost as hard as gently joining the flow of traffic....

I gave serious thought to buying earlier this year. 3.4 engine rare and a bit special.

It's was advertised in Slice recently via Mike Thompson for £8000
As it's now at £6500 and via AH Classics maybe John sold it for less
I recall a yellow SE5 of similar spec sold recently for £4000
Now that was a missed opportunity indeed
