SE6 For Sale/Being Broken for Spares

Post by Mr Bridger » Thu Jan 11, 2018 12:02 pm

There’s a 48k miles from new SE6 in danger of being broken for spares being discussed on the club Facebook page at the moment. It’s been offered as a going concern but apparently there was no interest.

I’m not an SE6 expert so don’t know whether it’s an SE6, 6a or 6b but from memory it’s either a W or X registration. It was allegedly build by Graham Walker and has a Capri type 2.8 injected engine fitted from new. I saw the car a while back (owned by the same person I bought my car from) and it needs some work and general recommissioning but does not a total restoration.

I have absolutely nothing to gain whether the car sells or not, but it seems a real shame to see it broken if anyone can save it hence why I’m mentioning it here. I can’t give you contact details, but as I said there’s a discussion of FB at the moment and I’m sure you’ll find out more there.

Hi I’m not on FB so can’t have a look but is this the black car from Andover in Hampshire do you know? Just out of curiosity as that has an injection engine in it .

I believe it is.

I think, finally, a value for the whole car has emerged of £800?

Nose needs repairs apparently

But it needs that and the loom fixing #From what we know#

It would have been mine, except no storage space for me.

Worth saving for the fact it's one of the few GW built ones (well I think it's an interesting point)

Yeah 800 is his "happy to let go" price as I so eloquently didn't put it on FB, mainly to have the figure out and on display without the "noone wants it" carrying on and there still wasn't a price mentioned
