Thumbs Up GTV for spares

Hi
I was in Newmachar motors the other day and there is a very forlorn looking red GTV in there.
I asked and apparently it came in for some engine work and they decided it was too difficult/not economical to fix.
Now it is just sitting there with flat tyres.
Anyhow the point of the story, I was told take it away for £250, might be a bargain for someone as it has a full black leather interior and alloys that alone are worth more than that I would think.

Can't lose at £250. I'd buy it myself & part it out if I had the resources.

a GTV is probably a touch on the heavy side but could still be good fun. I might engineer a visit over the next couple of weeks for a look and chat.

Sorry folks, I'm a complete waste of space when it comes to mechanicals, i should have been a girl :-)
I did ask but I'm not sure the salesman really knew, however there are several engine parts in the passenger footwell so it definitely requires a trailer to go anywhere.
