For Sale, 1977 Reliant Scimitar GTE6A Auto. This vehicle was in long term storage but in my possession has had extensive recommissioning work carried out. The previous owner repair/replaced the front chassis outriggers. The rest of the chassis looks sound and benefited from under-sealing. The front frames have been completely replaced with galvanised frame parts together with the spare wheel tray. Front lights all replaced with extensive wiring replaced to render all electrics to operate. A stainless-steel fuel tank is fitted together with a new aluminium radiator and new coolant hoses. The gearbox has been serviced with fresh oil and filter. Whilst the sump was removed the servo seals were replaced, a known problem with the C3 gearboxes. The brake system has been overhauled and items on the rear replaced. The alloy wheels have had the corrosion removed, painted and look presentable. The engine has had oil/filter replaced and runs very well with good oil pressure. In fact, the expensive and hard work has been done. The minus points are the carpets and the driver’s seat, both needs replacing. The rest of the interior is in reasonable condition. Externally the paint finish is not good with the usual GRP blistering. The rubber bumper inserts are also in poor condition. In all, a rolling restoration. It drives and stops with all services working. It would not be advisable to drive away due to the age the tyres displaying age related cracks. It has a V5 registered in my name as an historical vehicle, i.e. no Tax/MOT required. Present mileage displayed, 63188 miles. Apologises for the somewhat lengthy description but I’ve tried to give an accurate overview of the vehicle. It’s a 43-year-old car and as such requires further attention to details but has the potential to be an appreciating asset. Further details and pictures, (Can only post 6), can be supplied if required. Location North Devon. £2850.
