1968 Scimitar Coupé in a New Zealand magazine.
No idea why it has different front and rear number plates.
It is chassis 0479, another set of photos for Matt's archive.

Looks as though the front plate is stuck over the top of one which might be the same as the back? Could it perhaps be some kind of trade plate?

A couple more period Coupé photos,
The Rev(ving) Graham Shephard at Ragley in 1984
and Mark Fellows in Rochdale in 1983.

This latter pic started me thinking (which is unusual) as the car is ORE 239F, which I do not have on file
UNLESS Reliant fudged the 1970 publicity photo which shows ORE 239H :wink:

239F shows on DVLA as last taxed in 1983 but 239H doesn't show at all.

Aha, I smell a (plastic) rat.

Also, looking at the photo, I wonder where the back bumper came from, mine doesn't look like that ...

I've been searching through some hill climb photos, it's another gratuitous one, but I like it, this is Ian Daniels leaving the start line in Big Bob, at the Angelsey sprint in 2009
