Many Scimitars for sale or sold in Europe

Post by DARK STAR » Mon Jun 10, 2019 7:19 pm

I am rather behind schedule with this topic, I'll start with a french car which was for sale in february, and seems to have been sold in april.
It used to belong to Robin Abrey in Dordogne, who sold it to Yann Colas in Finistère, who disappeared ...
The car reappeared in february in the hands of Alexandre in Bouches du Rhone, for sale at 9 000 €
Apart from Robin identifying his old car I have no further details.

There is another SE5a for sale currently in the Vaucluse at 8 000 € which looks identical, I can't decide if it is the same one.
The photo is awful.

Je suis plutôt en retard sur ce sujet, je vais commencer par une voiture française qui était à vendre en février et qui semble avoir été vendue en avril.
Elle appartenait à Robin Abrey en Dordogne, qui l'a vendu à Yann Colas dans le Finistère, qui a disparu ...
La voiture est réapparue en février entre les mains d’Alexandre dans les Bouches du Rhône, à la vente à 9 000 €
À part Robin identifiant sa vieille voiture, je n'ai pas d'autres détails.

Il y a une autre SE5a à vendre actuellement dans le Vaucluse qui parait identique, je suis incapable de dire si c'est la même.
La photo est horrible.

Il nous manque pas des SE5a vert anglais :mrgreen:
Jacques Marmier de Biarritz vend sa voiture bien restaurée et avec peinture récente (elle était blanche).
Etrangement en France comme en Angleterre les Scimitaristes semble avoir une affinité avec les Land Rover, Jacques propose même un échange.

There is no lack of dark green SE5a's :mrgreen:
Jacques Marmier from Biarritz is selling his well-restored car with recent paint (it was white).
Strangely in France as in England Scimitarists seem to have an affinity with Land Rovers, Jacques even proposes an exchange.

And now for something completely different.

La voiture de John Birchmore est toujours à vendre, il l'a pas encore passée sur le Bon Coin ou LVA.
Elle et proposée à un très bon prix et elle est une voiture unique, beaucoup plus belle qu'une 'pointue' normale (selon moi)
La voiture pour pièces au prix réduit de 800 euros est une affaire, elle a meme la sellerie cuir et est en état de marche.

John Birchmore's car is still for sale, he hasn't yet got round to advertising it on le Bon Coin or LVA.
It is offered at a very good price and is a unique car, much better looking than your average pointy car (IMHO)
The spares car is reduced to 800 euros which is a real bargain, it even has leather seats and is in running order.

La prochaine, toujours dans les voitures françaises, cette SE6a appartenait jadis à David Autissier mais elle est actuellement en vente de la part de Nathan Axel (ou Axel Nathan, c'est pas claire!) à Méhun-sur-Yèvre (18).
Si elle est toujours aussi bien que pendant la tenure de David, c'est une bonne affaire.

Next up, still in the french cars, this SE6a used to belong to David Autissier but is currently for sale at a rather low price by Nathan Axel (or Axel Nathan, it's not clear!) in Méhun-sur-Yèvre (18).
If it's still as good as when David had it, it is a bargain.

Bonjour à tous !!!

I saw the car this afternoon, owner is the same for 10 years.

Mechanic sounds good except overheat problems solved by manual fan and overdrive that doesn't work. Battery have to be replaced and let place to spare wheel. Carburettor needs attention and new spare kit.

Chassis seems to me OK, only bushings have to be replaced.

Paint isn't genuine and doesn't look very good.

Electrical shows normal problems like heater fan, earth faults...

Car interior scares me... Doors panels have disappear. Blue leather front seats was repaced by black tissu ones. Rear seat backs are genuine but base disapeared. Top of dashboard was restored in black. Webasto roof looks very well.

Car has power steering and Wolfrace rims.

Do you think that I could find blue interior parts like doors panels, or exchange black seats against blue ones ?

Bonjour Erwan, thanks for the feedback.
Are you thinking of adding a big Scimitar to your collection?
If it has the same owner since ten years Nathan Axel must be a pseudonym as I have photos taken by David in 2013 :wink:
It looked pretty good in 2011 ...

Dernière des voiture françaises (pour le moment), cette jolie SE6a appartient à Roger Bull à Cognac (16)
Je n'ai pas vue la voiture et Roger n'est pas doué comme photographe mais je peux vous dire que sa Scimitar précédente était superbe 8)

Yes Chris, this GTE looks and sounds good for me !

Body wears lot of scratches and scars but polish can make it better.

The car was originally painted in Alaska Blue (code 42) then a sort of violet and now in Bleu Roi.

Is anyone have information for finding blue interior parts (I saw some on eBay) ?

What sort of overdrive is in the car ? I think a Laycock de Normanville but which type ? And which failures are more probable on it ?

Aha, the Scimitar addiction is strong :lol:
Blue interiors are quite rare, though many white SE6a's had them, including two french cars which are identical down to the blue pinstripe and woodrim steering wheel.
Overdrives are generally very reliable, the only thing that plays up is the electrical connection which becomes dirty or loose.
It is a Laycock type J as far as I remember.
Good luck with the purchase :hurrah:

Next we visit Switzerland where this very beautiful SE6a apparently failed to sell with a high bid of only 9000 € - see the experts' estimation for an idea of swiss prices 8)
The colour looks like Daimler Mountain Blue, which I have always liked and which suits the Scimitar admirably.
I can't understand why it didn't attract a better bid.

It could be that the SE6 had difficulties to sell as there in the early to mid 70s there was a change in regulation in regards to the emissions in Switzerland, which causes to this date to make cars that fail those standards basically impossible to register properly, to my knowledge later Scimitars are affected.

Interesting point, but I think the cut-off date is more like 1980.
I know Louis Guigoz spent years (and a lot of money) getting his Middlebridge registered but there are at least six GTE and GTC in Switzerland, including a couple of highly modified cars (non-original motor, full convertible GTC ...) which would be impossible to register in France without a certificat de conformité.
Ask me about certificats de conformité :wink:

The emission thing became big somewhere around 1985 in German speaking countries. I never heard of any se6a or b / GTCwith a cath from new. On a 3.0 ltr it is virtually impossible without major adaptions. I know of at least one GTC in Germany with a cath. That will be a late 1990-ies conversion for cheaper road tax in Germany. (one of the Pallasch brothers).

The certificat de conformité is a pain invented in the 2000-ies. Before it you could almost get anything with wheels and an engine registered. Aftwerwards it became a pain. In any country, not just Switzerland.
