GTV V6 - Still Searching
As per the title, despite a few email offers of GTV's for sale I am still searching.......
There really aren't that many good one's for sale, and by good one's I mean ones that are mechanically sound and up to date with the known issues being addressed, plus being in good cosmetic condition and a decent colour combo. Maybe I am being picky but I also prefer the Phase 2 cars, with teledials and aero spolier.
There are a couple of interesting car's on PH especially the Nuvola Blue one, but it's had 7 previous owners already, plus a rebuild and full respray so suspect it may be a Cat car, not checked it out yet.
I've been offered a 51 plate Vela Blue with nearly 120k on the clock which has also had a rebuild due to the cambelt letting go, it's done around 25k since and is still going strong. It's not cosmetically perfect but has teledials and aero spoiler and shortly will prob need a new clutch, I also know the owner of the garage that has done all of the work for the last few years. It's only 2 owners and has FSH and can be mine for not much over £2k....tempting.
Aside from these I've enquired about a couple of others (99 and 01) that appear to be nice examples and both are around the £3250 mark, however one needs a cambelt service and the other needs a clutch. The only reason I've hesitated is because I've missed out on other cars of similar spec (some with less miles) but with all jobs done for the same price if not less.
I am sure there is one for me out there somewhere and will stretch to £3.5k for the right one........we'll see.
