Reliant Scimitar GTC 2.8 1980 Manual with Overdrive

The Reliant Scimitar was designed by Tom Karen of Ogle Design. Initially launched as the GTE Sporting Estate, it found many followers due to its practicality and ease of use, coupled with excellent performance. The GTE’s were joined in 1980 by the GTC. Following the theme of that other British Gentlemen’s Express the Triumph Stag, the GTC came fitted with a roll over bar in the shape of a letter. A total of only 443 Scimitar GTC were produced, and they cost at the time £11360.

This particular model has only had three former keepers, its third keeper, a lady kept the car for 27 years. It is finished in its original colour of Panama Yellow with black fabric interior, and comes fitted with electric windows, polished Wolfrace Alloy wheels and a factory hardtop.It has recently been fitted with a new Mohair hood, a new steering rack, and had its front suspension overhauled. So it now drives superbly. Overdrive flicks in and out on third and fourth, the brakes feel very sure footed, and it really is a joy to drive.

There are currently only around 60 Manual GTC’s currently taxed with the DVLA, so they are now a very rare motor car. As each year goes by, this number will surely reduce by both natural and un-natural causes, so why not treat yourself to some thing that surely, even in the current climate, must represent the most incredible value at only £5995.

All Blue Butts cars come with 12 months MOT. We accept most debit and credit cards and deliver can be arranged the length and breadth of the country.
