The time has come to cull our ever growing fleet and sadly that means that our GTV Cup - no 122 - has to go
I bought it back in March 2013 and promptly spent an eye-watering sum doing all the 'necessary' upgrades. It then promptly lunched its engine, so even more money thrown at it having another engine stuck in it and all the new bits moved over.
It's a bit leggy at 149k miles - but replacement engine that went in had only done half that.
Major work during my ownership
Replacement engine with 75k miles fitted at 146k miles
4 new Uniroyal Rainsport 2 tyres fitted
Cambelt service inc water pump, tensioners
GTA flywheel, clutch and Q2 LSD fitted
New front lower arms, rear powerflex bushes
Straight through exhaust centre section fitted
New rear discs and pads
Total cost for above work: £5.5k!
MOT until 7 April 2015
Taxed until 31 December 2014
It could really do with a respray and wheel refurb, and the dampers are a bit tired so they would be my next job if I was keeping it. Also, the front splitter has been caught on a speed hump and needs some cracks repairing. The interior is very tidy with just a bit of wear to the drivers seat bolster. All the electrics work and the air con blows nice and cold. Comes with three keys, two alarm/central locking fobs plus burgundy master key. Lots of invoices in the history file. Straight through Ragazzon exhaust, so it's sounds glorious but loud
