A new arrival in the family means I'm having to get rid of my beloved GTV, as discussed here:
I'm pretty sold on a GT now, but I'm a little unsure as to the best way to move my GTV on.
The car is mechanically brilliant, with literally tons of stuff done, from front and rear suspension (rear powerflexed), all discs / pads, new wheels (GTA teles), tyres, radiator, water pump, timing belt, clutch (inc master and slave cylinders) and countless other things. No expense spared from a mechanical point of view. The engine is sweet (burns no oil) with 90k on the clock.
The problem I've got is the bodywork is very rough. I park on the street in London and it's had everything from bike pedals scraping along the side, a small 2p sized hole in the bonnet, to some builders actually dropping a load of wood on the passenger door (now has two small dents).
I had always planned to wait till I get a place with a driveway and have it re-sprayed, but that just never ended up happening.
So the average Joe is not going to want this car. I figure I either need to trade it in, or sell to an Alfisti who's willing to do the cosmetic work to make it a good one.
What do you guys think? (I'm sure I'll get an absolutely derisive offer for a trade in.)
