Hi,
I've just bought an Se5, EMC173J. Not sure if it is on the register or not.

Its last tax ran out at the end of August 1988. As you can imagine, it is going to take a bit of time to get back on the road.
It is registered as blue but I can't make my mind up if it is green or blue.

It is a manual overdrive car, which seems very standard.

Andy..

Glad to see another SE5 being saved.....Does look very original with the lovely, original wheeltrims - also seems to have very straight sills...(well, assuming the offside looks as good.. :lol: ) which is a definite bonus...

Yes, both sills are very straight and it was one of the reasons I decided to buy it.

Unfortunately it isn't quite as good as it looks in the photo, but it has been off the road for a very long time.
