Hi, just bought a very sad looking AXGT on a J plate - Here it is arriving at the storage I rent:
It's been off the road for at least 9 years that I know of, so will need complete recommissioning, along with welding to the sills, boot floor, driver's side rear wing and driver's side front inner wing (that I know of). There'll also be some rusty brake pipes to replace and who knows what else.
The good news is that the engine has run recently (although I'll change the cam belt before I do so), it's complete (albiet with some of the body kit removed to inspect the sills etc. for rust), and apart from some material coming unstuck from the door cards the interior is just missing the radio to make it complete and good.
I tend to like cars that are both rare and down on their luck, and this has been in the yard of my local Citroen indy specialist for years - he bought it for the air con, to transfer it to another GT he had, but sold the other car first. That's right, I said air con! The story I was told is that it was one of a batch of cars built for Australia that for some reson ended up here instead, although I don't know how true that is. I'll be back down the barn later in the week so will take some more pics then.
I would love to know if anyone know anything about this story, or if there's any other cars of similar spec out there.
Oh, and with the possible exception of the cat, I aim to keep this one original.
