Here is the last of the recent Coupé news, a known car which is currently for sale at a known specialist, Percival Motors.
http://www.percivalmotorco.co.uk/Relian ... r_Gt_Se4a/
Last known in Hampshire in 2010, it looks very good at 13 995 sterling, although the driver's door doesn't quite seem to match ...

You've got my brothers Daimler V8 TPL 170F on the list, spotted in Craneligh Surrey, but you don't have details of Dad's original Ford V6 TME 354F - both we're at Retro-Rides in Goodwood today, I'll post some pics tomorrow.

Thanks Ben, the Daimler makes my eyes water.
I knew I should have put a V8 in mine when I did the conversion but I didn't have the courage (or the bell housing 8) )
The 2,5 litre badge is a nice touch !

Went to Spa last year, brilliant! Hope the weather is good.

Stayed over the border in Munshau, cracking town ,and got to the Ring for a day :D

Love the Daimler powered car, perfect for the Coupe.

I wish.
My badge is a Coupe one.

Was the engine not designed by the guy who eventually worked at Triumph?, the bikes I mean.
Turner seems to spring to mind.
