A very nice example of this late series model of which only 407 SE6Bs, were manufactured then from 1983, they all were then on a galvanized chassis as standard, as this one is, being a September 1983.
We collected and drove her back from Northern Ireland ourselves in July 2015, where it had two owners, the first had brought it in 2009, from her previous lady owner in Scotland, who had her since 1994, after she had purchased her from the Yorkshire Scimitar Centre then.
Before that from new she was in one family ownership, before the dealership purchase her in 1993/4.
Since we collected her, as we had purchased her on behalf of a Private Collector in Italy, she has been kept in Pordenone near Venice.
While there she has been further pampered, used occasionally for visits, to Classic Car Events, etc. covering just over 1,200 miles during that time.
She is still on her original UK registration, with the V5 in with document file.
It had been fully repainted when in Northern Ireland, but retains its extremely good original black interior, it is fitted with a four speed manual gearbox with overdrive to its matching numbers 2.8 Cologne Ford V6 engine.
As she is still with the collector owner in Pordenone, it is possible, to have a wonderful trip by collecting her direct from the owner, then cruising back with her through the European Alps. Otherwise if you wished to view her and wanted her transported back to the UK, we can arrange this back by transporter to Essex for £795.00.
"Sorry" now sold on behalf of her owner, transported to the UK by us, collected and driven back to Southampton by her new owner.

This is an exceptionally rare 1980 Reliant Scimitar GTC Automatic and we believe less than 75 are registered in the UK today. This strong driving car has a recorded mileage of 69000 and the largely original upholstery would suggest this is correct. The Scimitar has come in part exchange from one of .....

Only purchased earlier this year, greatly enjoyed this summer but now selling as we are putting too many miles on it and need a more motorway orientated modern car. Very nippy when on boost but more economic than 1300 or 1600 cc versions when driven gently.
