This is a Scimitar 5a, first registered in 1972, it's the sought after manual version and has only two previous owners, it's always been kept in a garage and I have the original warranty and sale registration, and service book.
I have lots of history with the car, it had a big restoration costing thousands in the early 90s, it's not seen a lot of use since and the paintwork is still in great condition.
When I bought the car it hadn't been used for a few years, but I've done around 200 miles in it this summer. It's been used under the vintage mot rules.
It comes with an original set of wheels and hub caps as well as the wheels on the car in the pictures.
Recent parts fitted this year are
New front AVO adjustable shocks and new std springs
New brake master cylinder
New brake servo
New poly bushes to upper and lower wishbones
New front brake caliper
New drop links
New front brake pads
New goodridge front brake hoses
The car has an interesting history and would be a great car for a collector or enthusiast to own. The registration plate on it was assigned to it last year as the original was a cherished number that the owner wanted to retain,
It needs a few finishing off jobs to complete but at the price I’m asking there’s something in it for the next man.
The first owner only used it sparingly as he had two other cars. the second owner inherited it but hardly used it, I bought last year and I'm only selling it as I have another Scimitar and too many motorbikes and I've decided something has to go.
