I bought this car as a spares car for my other Scimitar, but discovered that in some respects it is in better condition than that one! It has been off the road since 1989. The headlining, rear seats and boot cover are in good condition, but the front seats and carpet are very poor. The dashboard has been dismantled (I used the top part for my other car). The exhausts are almost as new, and I believe the engine was reconditioned at around 90,000 miles, though I cannot prove this. As it was first put into storage in 1989, it has no new style V5. It would make an excellent project for a knowledgeable enthusiast, or a rich source of parts.
One of only 120 left on the road this example has been carefully dry stored for many years but due to ill health this project was never finished. Complete and only needs putting back together, some engine work and a light recommision.
