Classics often fetch good prices on this site but this Scimitar isn’t attracting much attention.

That seems cheap for a car in The Netherlands.

Yes I agree it's cheap for the car it's a shame it's so far away , it will cost a lot to get it shipped to the U.K. So makes the total high.

Go for a road trip and drive it back.

The paint is very poor, and its got a faulty Webasto roof. Probably why it's cheap.

It's to far to go anyway I have already got a Green SE6a which I think is the youngest one on the road at 4/81 .But am looking for a Red one to match my 1990 Red Lotus exsel.

6a production needed in 1979 - lots were registered a long time afterwards though.

Yes, but it’s still a 1979 car (or whenever it was built).

Date of registration is important in UK due to the recent change in DVLA policy about correcting date of construction for historic tax purposes.

This car has been advertised for a while now, in the hands of several owners. Price has gone up. And now going down? Current trader is asking too much IMHO. As is: he is asking too much for everything in his stock.
