My GTV V6 is now on 144.000 and it was showing its age when I bought it. It looked a little rough and clonked like mad over every undulation in the road.
However in the last 12 months its had a respray, new suspension all round (arms, bushes, shocks, wishbones etc), new radiator, new interior, refurbished wheels, etc etc etc.
I suppose it depends what big jobs need doing. I got mine for a bargain price and was actively looking for a project. I definitely found one!
Either pay rock bottom but expect a project or pay the right price for one with receipts for all the work already done.
The engines and gearboxes seem to last well though. Mine runs like new still and doesn't use a drop of oil.
