SOLD - Scimitar SE5 Auto for sale

Post by Jonp » Sun Sep 13, 2020 5:21 pm

Showing 81k miles, her bodywork/paint is in reasonable condition, some chips/nicks etc. - she’s 50 next year!
After 2 years of ownership she needs taking to the next level and I don’t have the necessary skills!
Pros:
New outriggers and chassis work by AJL (Scimitar specialist), new galvanised nose support fitted
4 new Hankook Optimo K715 185/80 R14 T (91) car tyres
Coolant hoses changed to silicone with new metal pipework and thermostat housing
New uprated alternator, coil, plugs, leads and rotor arm
Engine and fuel tank pipes replaced with Cohline
Track rod ends, rear brake shoes and wheel cylinders renewed
Timing gear appears to have been changed by a previous owner. Oil pump pencil drive, prop U/J’s and rear gearbox seal renewed, fitted with S/S exhaust
Heavy duty brake switch, upgraded voltage regulator (AJL), stereo and steering wheel replaced
Cons:
Exhaust manifold blowing slightly, slight gearbox oil leak. Heater, manual choke, hatch hinge need sorting, suspension needs a refurb, carpet in driver’s area needs renewing
Located near Chepstow and the M48/M4 bridges
£2250 ono

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Having worked on this car, I can confirm that it is around £2K underpriced for its condition.

To put it into perspective this car went for over £7k at auction in lockdown period - without seeing car in person and knowing all details I can only speculate BUT I would say it's worth more than what you suggest.....
