1982 GTV6 Buying
I thought I'd leap into the Alfisti and buy a classic '82 GTV6. I have found a one owner '82 plated car (Australian delivered), with what appears to be 109,000kms and books, but the synchro on 2nd is gone. Is this a common problem and if so, what is the typical cost for repair? I don't wish to over capitalise on the car, given that everything else seems to be well above average (yes, zero rust!). I am guessing that once the gearbox is out, then a full rebuild would make sense, or can the synchro(s) be repaired on their own? All the other gears/synchros seem great, and the shifts (for this car) are quite solid and not at all like a "big spoon in a bowl of porridge". Please help, as I really want this car for all its other attributes, but don't want a huge bill once I have this (and probably other smaller issues) fixed. While I'm here, what other particular aspects should one look at when buying this model GTV6? Thank you!!
