I've seen this nice GT 3.2 for sale. However, I don't know enough about GTs, much less about the 3.2 V6 engine. The ad makes me a bit dubious. After rooting around the seller purchased this car from a dealership in Cornwall.

The way the seller has described it, it looks and sounds too good to be true... I could be totally wrong. And It's the otherside of the country.

Gut feeling, is it worth the travelling or not? It looks stunning.

Cheers, PP.

That does sound stunning, seems a professional write-up by the seller.

Not far from me, :thinking: As the seller says, they're going to be a classic, of that there's no doubt.

Yup, but the dealership in Cornwall were flogging it for £4500. At that price why wasn't it selling? And that came with a warranty too.

Something isn't stacking up with this car but without seeing it in the flesh...

Very cheap for such mileage but you must have a reason for being wary, I always stick to my gut instincts on such things. He is selling very quickly so must be asked why of course, possibly just bought to make a profit. For £500 (or so) less mine is available and although higher mileage it has had thousands of pounds spent on it in 12 months and all of it's history with me has been posted on this forum so nothing is hidden...and I mean nothing haha. I'm not too far from Leeds either so two birds and all that

Yours looks really fab too. As previously mentioned (I've had more cars since 81 than I dare to mention) my gut is telling me something is afoot with the said GT.

Not that I'm disappointed with my 156 1.8TS SW - it's gorgeous, but as I do little mileage the bigger engined car wouldn't be a burdon for me.

Where in the country are you?

EDIT - Okay, just seen in your post. W. Yorkshire. Drat.

Both look good. I certainly think it's worth travelling to view.
