GTC FOR SALE

Post by John Cassingham » Sun Nov 05, 2017 8:41 pm

1980 Champagne GTC in a good condition is for sale. I've owned the car for 10 years exactly (5th Nov) When purchased it was a non runner, but always stored in a garage. I broke my 1982 SE6B (owned for 15 years) as the body was poor, but everything else was good, and used many parts to improve the GTC. I stripped the GTC, down to the bulkhead to fit an uprated heater, the brake servo, all the steering, all the engine bay items including the engine, from the 6b. I also changed the brake pipes, and anything else that needed changing.

New SS exhaust, central locking on both doors, plus an alarm, have been fitted. The engine is not unleaded, but has the Flash Lube fitted to allow a metered amount of lubricant into the inlet manifold under the carb. Seems to work as there has been no valve seat regression. Engine has done about 155,000 miles, and still going strong. The rest of the car has about 72,000 miles, as far as I know. It should go without saying that the car has been regularly serviced in my ownership. Brake fluid change is due next March. The car runs well and everything works. You can buy it and use it without having any work to do on it unless you choose to.

There are some marks on the body, and the paint is not perfect. The carpet is tatty in places. The soft top is original, and very good. The hard top is hung up in my garage, where it has been since November 2007. You can have it if you want it. Middlebridge wheels and centers, but need painting or powder coating. Lots of tread on tyres, but they are over 10 years old.

I also have a trailer, which you can purchase, and use it to take home any spares you might like to purchase (Lots of bits still left from the two cars).

I would add pictures, but it is beyond me! If you are interested I can send some. What bits do you require a picture of?

Kevin wants us to keep the values up, but I must be realistic and only ask for £5,000.

Hi John

I'm in Woodcote and will come through Cholsey tomorrow morning around 9.45. Any chance I can have a view of the car? If not I can drop by on Friday after work or on Sunday, I'll be at the NEC on Saturday.

PS Did you put it in the Wallingford Rally a couple of times?

Dave

I forgot to mention that there is no radio fitted. I do still have the one that was fitted, complete with an amplifier? box.
