Unfortunately not a GT, but looks to be a good condition, original car.
Not too many of them around anymore.

Once Viva's were all over the place. And then, one day when you see

one like this, you realise with a shock that they are basically all gone......Of course

not only Viva's. All the other of that time. Amasing how cars came and

go.

Could very well be a GT, unfortunately unless it is a Mk2 Cortina Perana, the Mk2 Cortina isn't very popular.
Should be a good car nonetheless.

Could be, but the following is not noticed; The "GT" badges on the rear vendors. The centre GT console.
Just do a bit of cost estimating ;) ;) If the investment is inline with the total cost. ;)
