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.
Wait not for tomorrow to do what can be done today, live each day for one knows not what the next day may hold.

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:
