The Essential Buyer's Guide - Reliant Scimitar GTE

If you're in the market to buy a Reliant Scimitar - do not purchase anything until you've read this unique guide written by Reliant enthusiast and authority Elvis Payne and published by Veloce.

He has been a Reliant enthusiast since 1990 when he purchased his first Reliant car.

In his book Elvis offers advice on:

  • Where and how to buy a good Reliant Scimitar

  • Key checks - how to spot a bad car quickly

  • Unique evaluation system for assessing a potential purchase

  • Choosing the right model for you and your budget

  • Whether is is worth buying a restoration project

  • Advice on paperwork, relative values, and buying at auction

  • Details of club backup, parts suppliers and support organisations

The book covers all the GTE models from 1968 up to the Middlebridge models of 1990.

Over the years, in addition to researching the company, he has assisted numerous media resources with Reliant related information, and was also instrumental in planning a blue heritage plaque to mark the birthplace of Reliant in Tamworth.

Elvis has written a number of books on Reliant and its various models and co-founded the Reliant Motor Club in 2016 for which he is currently the Chairman and Historian.
