Sadly my project GTV has to go
I've tried to rescue it from the scrapyard, it looked too good to scrap, so I bought it with the intention of returning it to the road 3 months ago. Unfortunately I'm losing the space to work on it, and due to it not being taxed and MOT'd, (and some certain pesky neighbours) I can't leave it on the road while I work on it. so it's going up for sale as spares or repair...
So I'll list what needs doing first: it failed the MOT 2 weeks ago (after being parked up for over 5 years) on the following:
Rear Calipers seized (replacements included in sale, including new discs and pads)
Rear bearings (replacement hubs included in sale)
front rubber brake pipes (replacements included in sale)
rear copper brake pipes
emissions (attributed to blowing exhaust centrepipe)
so the good stuff:
Momo red leather interior (including red carpets)
electrics all working.
17" Alfa multispoke alloy wheels
Engine, clutch and gearbox all good (test driven prior to MOT no issues)
battery is newish (1 yo, donated from another car I was breaking)
brand new alternator
new waterpump before it got parked
belts all in good condition.
could do with oil and filter change (included in sale)
new front discs and pads
new slider pins
replaced front calipers and carriers
Personal plate (R40 GTV)
due to the nature of the MOT failure it will need to be trailered away.
I know I'm not gonna make my money back, spent well over a grand on it so far. looking for £700ish...
