Alternative Coupé register ;-)

No Jim, that's another car altogether, this one really was a Reliant prototype. If that's he red coupe HOO 465B then it's not a prototype. I was thought to be, but again it was another one with a modified front nose cone. It's actually a Rover P6 front nose panel, which is metal... There's a Rover ...

Mike McCartney (aka Mike McGear) owned a couple of Scimitar. I was sent this newspaper clip, but sadly with no other details and I can't see the reg plate, although I'm wondering if this was: Mike told me: "Dear Dave, Charlie Leek from Argyle Motors, Bhead found my 1st khaki, black interior Scimitar...

Hiya Chris,

NRE 845F is the Scimitar GTE prototype fitted on an elongated coupe chassis.

MHY 878L is a GTE chassis with a modified coupe bodyshell

WGW 652G and WGW 658G are definitely GTEs as I have photos of them.

Cheers

CCM 345C - Chassis No: 400021 - Engine No: 5372686

EBB 496 is FDU 665C (still in Cyprus) - I wonder if FDV 655C should read FDU 655C too?

HRD 888E - Chassis No: 400455 - Engine No: E116

KOV 3F was GBG 540E?

ARF 109D - Chassis No: 400401 - Engine No: 6020a

Ogle Cortina

I remember when that car was found in the Phiippines many years ago now.

Obviously had a bit of a makeover since it was found, but it was a great find 8)

239F shows on DVLA as last taxed in 1983 but 239H doesn't show at all. I have owned ORE 239F for the last couple of years, and indeed it could well be the ‘Elusive”.... I have an original photo of the advert in the pile of papers that came with the car and it is far from clear what the the suffix i...
