"would of had a rear spoiler" Always irritates me, that.

No engine, soft top or interior pictures and starting price far too high. Needs paint. Too rich for me!

It had a brand new hood when it was sold 6 years ago (no MOT and garaged for 8 years) and it’s only done 2000 miles in those 6 years.

I would say that a £2k start price isn't too bad if everything works as stated and is as described. Yes it'll need a bit of TLC, but don't they all.

There are some hidden gems out there that are "under" described. Could this be one of them ?

The photos may flatter it, but if that " needs paint " I hate to think how to describe my white 1400.

The Scimitar SS1 is not so much a car as a lifestyle statement; it basically says "I'm mad, and I don't care".

good convertibles especially rarer ones will sell well any time of year, there where some sales figures in one of the classic motoring magazines a few years ago showing more convertibles were sold in the autumn and winter than the spring and summer.....

But unless you know the selling price, that may just mean it’s a better time of year to buy a convertible? :D
