For sale again so soon?

Alan will love the bit about "generally overhauled and serviced by professional engineers".

At least it's a realistic guide price. Whether is achieves it or not is another matter. Tbh, if I had the money and was in the market for a Peerless, I'd rather have this one than the Bonhams one that was up earlier in the year (notwithstanding which side the wheel is on).

Looks as if if it didn't sell.

Anyone any idea what it was bid up to if, indeed it was?

I remember when that was Gordon Keeble money. I must be getting old. I am getting old.

I'm not getting old, I am old.

It's a fearsome price, and an even more eye-watering buyers premium (+ VAT).

I suspect that anyone buying in this market won't be getting their pinkies grubby to keep the thing running, and won't be rubbing shoulders (or any other part of their anatomy) with me and great uncle Frank.

Good bit of film and nice interior detail which is good for me. I notice that the headlining extends over the whole roof rather than going under the aluminium 'strips' that ran front to back. Anyone know if this was a later change or original to the car?

I ask because I'm debating with myself whether to use the alli strips or go full width like this car.

Pretty sure it will sell now with so much pictures showing what seems to be a very honest car.

I've done the same thing on my phase 1 as (like every other piece of ali on the original car) the previous owner who stripped the car down folded the ali sides up into 4 to get them to fit into an even smaller cardboard box than the sill cover went into disbelief

It is quite fiddly to do and mines not the best of fits (intended to go back to it...yea) and I can see why they did it in the factory as it must have ben a lot quicker.

Guess it also gave them a flat area to fit the interior light to too .

Having replaced the headlining on my Scimitar Se5a and never being fully satisfied with the result, I think I'll stick to using the aluminium 'U' sections as per the original. Mine are in quite good condition and just need re-covered.

I just wondered if some P1 cars left the factory with a full width roof lining.
