I am selling one of my 'future' projects as I realise I just don't have the time to complete them all. This one is a nice little GT6 Mk3 with overdrive, rotoflex rear suspension and loads of potential.

OK so it's not strictly a barn find, It was in a barn but I knew it was there so I'm fibbing really! We all love a barn find though don't we, and there seem to be more barn finds than barns these days!

 It needs a full restoration as you can see from the photographs - definitely not a quick project. The body is rusty in all of the places that they can be so don't be under any illusion of a quick fix.

It used to run and drive fine and drove into the barn where it has been stored for the last 6 years. It has lost a few parts since then so is no longer a runner.  The engine was typically smooth and strong and the overdrive gearbox worked fine last time I drove it. 

It has a full stainless sports exhaust with twin tail pipes which used to look and sound great.

The overdrive gearbox is a very desirable option and worked in 3rd and top gear which makes a huge difference to driving these cars.

Parts which I know are missing include the radiator, thermostat housing, gearstick, gearbox cover, propshaft, tailgate and fuel filler cap.  I might have some of these items and will include them if I do. 

Of course you can get everything you need for these cars so restoring it won't be too difficult as long as you are OK with a welder - that's what you'll be doing most of.

So there you have it, I have told you as much as I can think of. Obviously it is being sold as a project. I might be able to help out with spares if you need any.

As with any car auction I would recommend viewing before you buy. If you win the auction I expect a 10% deposit immediately via Paypal and the balance payable by cash on collection or bank transfer within 7 days of auction end. If you can't collect within 7 days I can hold the car for as long as needed but it will need to be paid for.

Remember you bid to buy not haggle. I'll answer any questions I can but this will normally be late evening so don't leave them until the last minute.

UK bidders only!

Enjoy the auction.
