Re: 156 GTA sold on ebay for 4 grand!

I can't imagine there being high demand for a crashed car so the price isn't a big suprise..

I thought about buying that but it needs a lot of work to make it usable and than it will never be right. Personally I think it is only good for parts.

You would want documented proof of the “professional” repair. But maybe a good candidate for a stripped out track car?

Re: 156 GTA sold on ebay for 4 grand!

I'd be concerned about the extent of the original damage since I would guess big frontal impact and rear damage too - it must have been bought very cheap to be able to sell it £4,000 and why if its been professionally repaired didnt they complete the work?

Anyway £4,000 isnt that much as the GTA parts alone are probably worth that

You're probably right there thinking about it. Would the wings from a GTA fit a standard 156? Obviously you'd need the bumpers as well as they are wider...

Also, is that a standard rear bumper on that GTA? Looks different to me?..

Re: 156 GTA sold on ebay for 4 grand!

Something about this car doesnt look right, like mentoned the rear bumper isnt right, also the car looks like its riding much higher than a GTA should, springs probably been replaced with wrong ones. Looks like a bargain but as much of us know, Things rarely turn out the way you expect.

Re: 156 GTA sold on ebay for 4 grand!

Bumper looks standard, but the little wing section which fits in the middle is missing, thats why it looks odd.

Nope. GTA wings are unique design and will only fit the GTA.
