Parts question

Inlet manifold is NOT from a Scimitar. It won't fit a V6.
I'd suggest it's from the pinto, but I'm no expert on those old Ford's :)

GTC Brake Servo Advise

I paid more than £100 just for parts to refurb my (admittidly) SE4 servo a few years ago. That does seem a good price for someone to rebuild one :?

I may be out of turn to say this, but it does surprise me that people complain at the price of genuine brake parts for our cars.

Not just you. I saw that too, and wondered momentarily if they drive on the right on the Isle of Man :lol:

I'll get my coat...

7 inch headlight Lucas 7669

Philip, although I've happily bought lots of bits from 'autoelectricsupplies', personally I wouldn't recommend the lighting harness. In may just be me, but I felt the wire gauge was a bit light :roll: for the application, even though I was also adding relays.

1967 SE4 on Car & Classic

Ummm :? they stopped making the Straight 6 in 1966. I suppose it could have been registered later?

Otherwise, yes it appears to all be there. Interesting back seats are now very rare... I've got 2 :D

Optimistically priced for a project, though I hope it achieves a good price

7 inch headlight Lucas 7669

I've both Wipac and Cibies, which are both "low dome" as you call it. I went to check the spares last night as I thought I also had some from my old series 2 land rover, but must of got rid of them a while back (can't even remember if they were 7")

Wasn't that one on the Bay last week for £10k buy-it-now?
Alex.
Just catching up :oops:
It was in Brightwell's auction in February.
It may have also been a buy-it-now when it first appeared on eBay, but I didn't make a note.

Ians GTC rebuild. Now she runs.

Very nice Ian.
I have been contemplating replacing the plywood panels (what's left of them 😮) on mine too, and can't help wondering why Reliant never made them in fibreglass!

Might well look at the same material as you, as they look really good.

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Well done Guy, no trace of that one anywhere :) Are there any details on Facebook? As Jim has noted #151 apparently. Stalled project, and owner is asking whether someone's either interested in restoring for him, or maybe selling it (no price mentioned). Apparently mechanically all there with engine...

Chris, this popped up on FB this evening. I had a quick look on your your register and couldn't see the registration?

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

A recent rummage in the archives came up with these two pics, one of which was not on the site ... Details should be in the caption line At least one of those pictures (or another similar one) was on the back cover of Slice iirc. I know Ray (and I'm pretty sure Stuart as well) still owned their Cou...

Renault Scimiter [sic] Rat Rod

Many years ago, my insurance broker issued a cover note for my newly acquired SS1 - as a Renault Simitra :shock:

Perhaps they thought it was something akin to that evilbay item :lol:
