1989 Relaint Scimitar SS1 1600

We have owned the car since 2010, since our ownership the car has been dry stored and only been used on sunny days, very rarely has the car been out in the wet. We have maintained, upgraded and updated the car thoroughly throughout our ownership. Unfortunately with a new car coming we simply no longer have the space required to keep it.

This is a single wiper model with the galvanized chassis, and also with the body being fibreglass there is very little to rust on these cars. Both body and mechanical items on the car are in excellent condition. The stripes and Gulf logo were professionally applied using top quality vinyl several weeks after we bought the car and are still in excellent condition suffering no fading whatsoever. The car has been fitted with vented front discs, braided goodridge brake lines and greenstuff pads to help bring braking closer to modern standards. The original carburetor has been replaced with a set of Yamaha motorbike Carbs (the sound is fantastic!) and professionally set up by an experienced mechanic. A full stainless steel custom powerflow exhaust from manifold back was fitted not long after we bought the car which works brilliantly in combination with the carbs to give that fantastic sound. The battery has been moved to boot for better space under the bonnet and to give better weight distribution. While relocating the battery to the boot we added a hidden battery cut off switch with removable key in the cabin for security purposes, the boot was also fully relined in new black carpet along with new seals. A new starter motor has just been fitted to replace an older item. Standard radio has been removed and replaced with an upgraded unit with usb input and a small screen, the two small speakers have also been replaced with new alpine units. The standard seats have been replaced with Mazda mx5 seats, a common swap in these cars for both comfort and looks. The side sills were checked for rust and found to be completely free from any, these were then painted with a smooth hammerite black paint to protect them for the future. The underside of the car was fully inspected and any suitable areas also painted using black hammerite paint. Brand new indicator units were fitted about a year ago to replace dull looking ones. The car comes with a white hard top with matching stripes. New Navy Mohair hood on frame available at extra cost.

The car currently has 117284 Miles, this is unlikely to rise as the car isn't being used at this time of year.

MOT until July 2018

We are located in Northern Ireland, 15 minutes from both Airports and Seaports - anyone wishing to view the car can of course be collected from either on arrival.
