I bought this last year. It has done 122,000 miles (just over 2000 since I bought it in May 2010)
It is mechanically sound, starts and runs well, and doesnt burn oil. The paintwork is faded and peeling, especially the bonnet, but the body work itself is in good shape. The interior is grey cloth and in reasonable condition. As is usual for GTVs of this age, neither the heated rear screen nor the electric aerial work.
It has all three keys and documentation of previous work. The MOT runs until 12th May 2012 (it sailed through this year). The tax has just run out.
I bought it with the intention of restoring it, and spent over 2000 pounds on it last year. The work was mostly done by Jamie Porter in Royston, for which I have receipts.
The work included:
New cambelt and variator
Rear main oil seal
New brake pads and discs front and rear
n/s/r wheel bearing
Both rear spring pans
Balancer shaft seal (top and bottom)
o/s lower wishbone
It has since had:
Rocker cover gasket
It is now in my garage and I dont have time to continue to work on it. The mechanicals are largely sorted but it needs a repray really. It would be good to think that someone might want to continue working on it - but would equally be a good source of spares.
I'm after 750 pounds for someone to come and take it from me. I'm based in Huntingdon. PM or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
for more details. I will post some pictures tomorrow.
