**SOLD** 1978 Reliant Scimitar GTE V8


1978 Reliant Scimitar GTE V8

The vendor has kindly supplied the following information:

  • Fitted with Rover V8 SD1 
  • Original 4 speed overdrive gearbox. Stainless steel fuel tank. stainless steel exhaust and manifold
  • Electric fuel pump switch under driver dash.

As stated this Scimitar has been fitted with a V8 power plant, which actually fits extremely well. The body, apart from the flaky paint, looks very reasonable, as does the underside of the car. A quick glance under both sides, front & rear revealed no obvious horror stories. All Five alloy wheel are in good order. Some elbow grease and a tube of alloy polish will witness these looking great. No cracks on the dash top. Door cards and carpets are good and there is a boot full of spare parts.

The expired road tax in the window reads 04/03. So she may well have been stood a while!

First impressions improve considerably the longer you spend viewing the car. 

Surely a rewarding project for one of you true enthusiasts with a sensible guide / reserve.

We have NOT had this car running.
