'Star Vehicle' (Coventry Transport Museum)

I got this note is my update email from Coventry Transport Museum - I think this one had been moved to storage for a while when recently re-vamping the place.

STAR VEHICLE
Reliant Scimitar GTE (1975)

The Reliant Scimitar GTE was introduced in 1968, an upgrade from the Scimitar GT Coupe of 1965.
Scimitars were made at the Reliant factory in Tamworth. The bodywork was designed by Ogle and was constructed of glass fibre built on a steel box section chassis. The engine was a Ford Essex ohv V6.
