1983 Reliant Scimitar GTC
This car is being restored from the chassis upwards. The car is in original condition with the Ford Cologne V6 engine and 4 speed manual box with overdrive.
Significant rust has been discovered along the outriggers and the decision was made to rebuild the car using another restored chassis from a SE6B. These chassis are identical and this replacement is now ready to receive the body. The photograph shows the donor chassis before being shot-blasted.
