That would make it one of the very first GT's imported, correct?

Truly amazing find, would love to see a build thread of this car.

Well done on your find, wish you well with the build up.

Oh, thought with the 2V engine, it might have been produced earlier.

Also I see, it is one of the colour combo's you need photos of, for http://www.safairmontgt.com.au

Very nice find

I suggest he takes the offer he "has" as its probably the best one he'll get for a parts car.

When I see such project cars I pretty much know the tiny % of people who could actually take on such a project, economically its hardly worthwhile if you farm the work out but if one is skilled then perhaps it would be something viable.

I agree, Look at this one two years later! :cry: Is Frik stil around? 8O He never came for the cover I donated! :roll: I have averaged about three years per project! :mrgreen: I am looking at the Kadett B without the engine and gearbox! I have a complete Running 153 engine and gearbox that will fit! But it will have to wait till August! I have R5000 to spend! :mrgreen:
