1979 Reliant Scimitar GTE SE6A
Registration no. RCM 37T
Chassis no. 8L65/18204549
Engine no. ISC/14477
Successor to Reliant’s Scimitar GT was the new GTE of 1968, designed by Ogle and in every sense a Grand Touring Estate. A multi-purpose vehicle, the opening tailgate and fold-down rear seats offered useful estate car load capacity and yet the well-proven 3-litre V6 Ford engine gave the car sports car performance. The fibreglass body shell was built by Reliant at Tamworth and the interior was appointed to a high standard. It came with options of four-speed synchromesh gearbox with over-drive or automatic transmission. With a top speed of 118mph the GTE was a particularly attractive high-speed motorway car but was still equally comfortable at the Point-to-Point meet or on the weekly shopping trip. Over £5,300 has been spent on this manual/overdrive car since January 1999, the work including fitting a reconditioned V6 Essex engine, new clutch assembly, water pump and hoses, stainless steel exhaust, one-piece prop shaft, carpet set, new respray in brown livery and new battery. Only 3,700 miles or so have been completed since the major work has been carried out. This is a significantly better than average Scimitar, from enthusiast ownership and offered with a collection of Club magazines, manuals, some spares, Swansea V5 registration document, current road fund licence and MoT certificate.
