Due to not using the car as much as I used to and also having a Scimitar V8 GTC to play with, its sadly time for my Scimitar Se5a to move on and get used by another owner. A sad reluctant sale… The car has been garaged for the last two years and was only recently recommissioned for the road.

She is powered by Ford’s V6 3000cc which is in fine condition, running at 55 psi. Her 4 speed + overdrive gearbox is working, and the back axle has a limited slip differential fitted. Her tyres, are on Wolfrace alloy wheels and are all in good condition. The spare is also a Wolfrace alloy.

Inside, with the black trim and instrument panel full of Smith’s dials, which apart from the clock all work, she is pure 1970’s.

My car is a 1971 Scimitar SE5a GTE in Maserati yellow. The colour was on the car when I purchased her and has some minor paint bubbles, scratches and one or two small cracks near the rear light area. The car is 48 years old…I would say the overall paint job is a 5- footer….…From 5 foot away it looks amazing but if you get your head down and close up you will see the points I have mentioned.
The lights are not standard GTE and are all individual light units. As can be seen in the photographs.
The car has had a steel timing wheel fitted by the previous owner.
The car also has electronic ignition.
The front seats have been replaced for half leather MR2 seats which are very comfortable especially on long journeys.
Stainless steel cooling pipes…
4 new headlights..
Dolomite Sprint front spoiler..
Electric Cooling fan..
Stainless steel petrol tank and stainless-steel straps and stainless-steel twin exhaust….
New fuel filter and fuel pipe work to the carburettor recently updated to new ethanol proof pipes.
The steering wheel is also the more sought after three spoke item which I had hand stitched in leather by an ex TVR trimmer.
The car is registered as an historic vehicle and is tax exempt. I have taxed it though with DVLA so legal for raod use. I don’t believe in the MOT exemption so she was put through one on the 15th May 2020…MOT passed and now valid until May 2021.
I have lots of bills, old MOT certificates, some articles written on the car and there is also a genuine Blue Reliant works manual for the Se5a.
I also have lots and lots of boxes with parts in. These are available by separate negotiation if you want or need any.

In conclusion a very usable and underrated classic British muscle car to drive and enjoy. Viewings available by appointment, as I do work for myself and my time is precious.
The car had a body off restoration prior to my ownership so the mileage cannot be confirmed but I have MOT certificates from 2007 until 2020 showing my mileage in the car.

Also please don’t come and just kick tyres or make me a ridiculous offer. I know what I want and will hold the car for future owners who will appreciate the car, rather than for dreamers……Fully comprehensive Insurance certificate to drive other vehicles is required if you want to test drive.
Thanks for looking.
