Anyone know if these parts are worth anything and whether they are from an Esex V6?. I'm aware that ones an inlet manifold.
They were found in my mums garage sitting on a shelf. My dad owned 3 Scimitars in total, the last one being a 6b. Previous to this was a 6a which was scrapped about 8 years ago, so I'm guessing the parts came off of that car before it was scrapped (why they were taken off I don't know) and stored in the garage for some possible future use. Or they could've come off a Pinto that was originally housed in my dads E-Type kit car, but I've been told they look like they're from an Essex V6.
Some of these have numbers, which are
66315 0438/62 47BW

Inlet manifold is NOT from a Scimitar. It won't fit a V6.
I'd suggest it's from the pinto, but I'm no expert on those old Ford's

Only the carb is/will fit Scimitar.

Carburettor and air cleaner was fitted to a 6b or GTC Cologne engine. It looks like a Weber 38DGAS that has the auto choke water chamber missing. The rest isn't Scimitar related in my opinion.
Actually looking again I reckon that is a 6a linkage, not Cologne and the air cleaner isn't the right shape either so must be a Ford vehicle.

Think the air cleaner could be CVH?

I suspect it’s Pinto - or more correctly, whichever carb the Pinto had. Does it fit the carb attached to the manifold in the first pic? Looks like a 4 bolt attachment.

Yes, both Pinto manifolds, carbs and linkages to be used with them

Been a few days since I have had time to reply.
I don't think the air cleaner is from a Pinto, or at least a Pinto that my dad had housed in one of his cars. He had two cars with a Pinto, one that was originally housed in his self built Tiger Cat kit car, but that engine was left at a garage he had taken it to as they were trying to extort more money. The 2nd was the original engine that was with the E-Type kit car, and said engine is still lying rotting in the garden under a tree with what looks like an air cleaner similar to the one above albeit its metal and not plastic, so it cant from that.
There's an assortment of varying bits and parts, including engine parts from one of maybe more than one car that I have come across in the loft. I would have to post pictures of them as I have no idea what I am looking at, but I would say the likely car candidate would be a Scimitar. There are also a few other bits there that I'm fairly sure came from a more modern car, likely from my dads long scrapped Renault Espace (one of the seats is up there believe it or not; why he kept that I haven't the foggiest lol). Quite bewildering how many bits there is. Would be ashame to throw them away if they are of any use to anyone. I can't imagine those parts would be easy to find.

I'm with Brian on the air filter housing, looks to be for a CVH engine and i'd add that I think it would be for the 28/30 DFTH Weber carb.

I have never heard of a CVH engine before, so I've no idea what car the parts came off. The Ford engines my dad had in his cars where Pinto's, an Essex V6 and a Duratec. They could've come from a scrap yard to use as spares, but maybe they weren't suitable.
Regardless if they are worth anything or not, does anyone know if the parts are still useful to anyone?. I'm just trying to clean out stuff that I've no use for.

Got a plan that could use that air filter housing. PM on its way

Here's some pics just to give you an idea of what parts I have. Hope they are clear enough. The ones below have been stored in the loft for years, not sure how long they've been up there though. Some have Lucas and Lockheed on them.
To be honest if anyone wants them I'd rather them come and look at them as then they would have a good idea of what is what.
