Earlier this summer, my son agreed to buy a GTV from a friend and fix it over the summer holidays.
Needless to say, he has spent too much time partying and on the Xbox, so it is currently partially disassembled in the garage
He now hasn't the time and I haven't the time/space/mechanical inclination to carry on the job.
It's a '97 car with 83k on the clock.
Bodywork is rust-free, but has lacquer peel on the bonnet and bumper.
o 4 new tyres
o all the electrical stuff works (no radio, though..)
o full leather interior is pretty good
o spare wheel unused and has original tools/jack
o cambelt and variator changed at 75k
o head gasket has failed (but engine didn't oveheat, according to last owner)
o rear exhaust box is rusted
o OSF driveshaft needs a new boot
He paid £350 - it should be worth more than that in parts.
He'd like to get most of his money back - I had to convince him that starting to strip the head didn't really increase the value...
Email me email@example.com
or PM if interested in the whole car or significant parts.
Cheers - Simon
