GTE SE 5/5A parts and bits

Post by GeoffTE » Fri Aug 10, 2018 10:25 am

Need to have a clear out (she says :roll: ) so the following are going, either to those in need or to the dump. Don't know if the things that are supposed to work actually work, but they won't be expensive or maybe free. Able to bring to Curbs, but not keen on posting. Send your rep if you're not going yourself :lol:

2 x rear side windows, chrome average but can be reversed £5
2 x front L and R bumpers, chrome good no rust, but very slight damage around one bolt hole. Won't be seen when fitted £30
2 x front springs, stiffer and shorter than standard 250lb x 12", (standard 200/14) only done 500 miles. I fitted them to SAR originally but car then too low to clear bump on drive. Cost new £30 each. £20 pair
2 x Spax gas front dampers, don't look too good, but worked ok £5
Fuel pump glass type unknown working condition £2
Gauges, black rims: 2 x oil, amps, fuel, small clock, temp, all free, 3 x rev counter (don't ask!)£2 ea. can't verify that they work
2 x SE5/Coupe lower dash panel, carries wiper and heater knobs etc,, some knobs and ashtray still fitted -free

Weber carb, 38 DGAS with fitted auto choke, needs thorough clean £30

Auto gear T-bar handle , free
2x No plate light, one chrome slight damage, one black plastic, free
Interior mirror, not sure its original fitment, free

I also have a complete 5/5A workshop manual copy in 4 separate ring binders with each page in its own clear plastic cover. Great condition and only a tenner and I'll throw in a copy of the Practical Classics booklet Scimitar Restoration :D

Final call :lol:
I also have a large number (well over 100) of copies of Slice, the earliest I think is no 65, but I haven't gone through them all. There's also a technical index that covers nos 1 to 185. All Free.
Oh and there's 8 of the blue hardback binders to keep them in :wink:
