Looks lovely Chris!

Here are a few more Coupé pics I came across, not sure if they're already on file.
Taken in 1965 by Autocar journalist Edward Eves (who I seem to remember trashed one Coupé) somewhere in Italy.

Plus some I haven't seen before of the 1969 Austrian Journalists Rally.
Driver (I think) Edward Eves, photographer Karl Ludwigsen.

No, I certainly haven't seen those pics. :) That car's the one now owned by Peter Freeman, of course.

Yes, and I noticed when I was indexing it, it is a mirror image of Axel Tenkink's (lhd) car,
even down to the black headlight surrounds and Middlebridge wheels :shock:

petrolbob wrote:Jeff thanks very much for letting us view this archive. In the events list and Coombe Abbey in particular, the last picture of a silver coupe took my interest. That coupe belonged to Dennis and Joan Maynard from Audlem. (JFX 750F) It had quite extensive work done on it in Robin Rews workshop by the previous owner, - engine rebuild, stainless manifolds and exhaust etc. I maintained the car during their ownership and it was a pleasure to drive.]

I have owned JFX750F for a couple of years now, here it is on Friday, just back from its first MOT since 2007.
Currently stripping it down for a respray.

I don't really do Facebook, but I found this link an FB page when searching on Google LINK

If you scroll down far enough you'll find lots period photos of Scimitars having body repairs and a GTE to GTC conversion. Maybe a Facebook user could post them to this thread ?

Bit of an advert for Avon Classics but relevant to the thread :-)
