293 Reliant Scimitar SE4B Convertible (1966-70)
Reliant Scimitar SE4B Convertible (1967) Engine 2994cc V6 OHV Production 590 (all SE4B)
Registration Number RAT 99 G
The Scimitar was designed and built as a 3 seat Coupe to an Ogle design. Initially launched 1964-66 with a Ford S6 OHV 2553cc engine. With GRP bodywork with a choice of Ford or a ZF gearbox and optional overdrive.
The SE4B followed powered by a new Ford V6, there is very little outward difference but the SE4B also has a stiffer chassis. Standard transmission is a Ford gearbox with an option of ZF and optional spoke wheels. From 1967 a rare economy 2553cc engine version was also launched.
*I cannot find any record of a convertible version, so this is either an after market conversion or a specially built car.
