NTDWM but there’s a 72 5a on a galv chassis with a Saab b204 turbo fitted, here on retro-rides. I think it’s a bargain at £3500 even if the paint is poor (I’d roller it NATO green and stick some banded steels on it :D )

Hi, that's my car that's up for sale. Was about to put an ad on here but someone's beat me to it. I am thinking about pulling the engine and gearbox and selling it as a rolling shell if anyone's interested. The chassis is in amazing condition with massive wilwoods up front.

Part ex’ed against an MX5 by the looks of things? Build thread here - although it’s pretty sparse on info.

Me too but I suspect he got a chunk of cash and never seemed to like the GTE shape much anyway.
