This is part question and part plug for my Spider, which I am selling.
If you do find the roof on the GTV too low, consider a Spider. The mohair roof allows a 'tad' more clearance, with the benefit that you can drop it during the (drought filled) summer time.
I am sure there are a couple of Spider owners in Staffordshire who would be happy to let you clamber about their cars.
Regarding price, £2K + belt / suspension fix, this sounds like it might be £3K car once you have sorted everything.
My Spider is listed on the classified section and ebay
, the full description is behind the link.
The belts have been done 18 months ago, there are 2x new tyres on the rear (1000 miles ago) and the suspension has been done by the previous owner (receipts to corroborate this).
Nothing needs doing to this car, until the next service point.
I would love for a forum member to take the car and I would let it go for a lower price.
