Thanks Richard, that’s good to know.

Thankfully being a 2000 it should have an LSD and I will be fitting a fast road kit together with a full suspension rebuild. Other bits planned are the full sports exhaust, lightened flywheel, sports brake kit, 123 dizzy and I’ve also got a refurbed set of Webers. I’m planning on fibreglass bonnet and boot and possibly plexiglass to save some extra weight. Not decided on the interior yet but i’ll be saving weight where I can.

My budget is £20k but that’s got to stretch to everything. The shell is in the body shop at the moment and will be blasted within a couple of weeks. Depending on what they find under the paint will give me a better idea of how much the body is going to cost then i’ll know how much is left for the engine and other bits, fingers crossed!

Current cars - 1973 2000 GTV, 1974 Spider 2000, 2002 Porsche 911, 2003 Rover 75 V6.

Gone but not forgotten - 1999 GTV TS, 1987 Alfetta GTV, 1978 Alfetta GTV, 1968 Giulia Super 1600, 1967 GT Junior 1300.
