I am considering selling my 69/70 SE5.

Anyway, I think it's in pretty good condition ,red with a good condition black interior.

All machining work was done by the Car Clinic.
Spec: 3.1 Essex V6
Big valve/ported heads,
JW lightweight steel timing wheel
HD bearings
HP oil pump
Car clinic twin DGAS set up

V63 cam
New +60 pistons/rebore
Lightweight flywheel

New Glycol cam bearings
Rebuilt distributor
186 bhp/195 lb/ft[dyno sheet available]
The original matching numbers engine is available if you want it.
2 rod gearbox and o/d good apart from slight oil leak.
New clutch
The 4HA axle is silent.[very unusual]
Electric fan.
Excellent chassis.
Brakes fully overhauled apart from could do with new discs.
Loads more work done in addition to this.
Very original looking car.
I can't get pictures on at the moment but if you look at the pictures section of scimweb I put some on

Oooooohhhh, that is gorgeous.....& a real 'Q' car judging by the work that has gone on under the bonnet. Love that it is on the original wheels & trims - (I think those centre Scimitar wheel trim badges were designed to fall off!! :) )

It has certainly upset a few of the local boy racers!
The engine is really torquey with excellent mid range power.
I set the cam slightly advanced to bump up the midrange.
