No overdrive, so what would you do?

I'd buy it and if you don't get on with it I'd then fit a 5 speed type 9 conversion. As others have said the 4 speed manual does have a nice gearchange.

A 4 speed non overdrive car already has a cable clutch pedal box so theres one less thing to deal with.

Andy, I've just flicked through you for sale thread, I'm not in the market for a GTC at the moment but with my imaginary buyers hat on I was left wondering if the way you've presented the changes / improvements you've made over the course of this thread might inadvertently put off potential buyers.....

SS1 Rear Skirt

Yes its my intention to take a moulding from Phil's spoiler. Once the tooling is made I will probably produce a small quantity for sale to offset the costs. Unfortunately the spoiler Phil has kindly lent to me has had a hard life, Including being bonded to a car and flow coated with multiple layers ...

SS1 Rear Skirt

I have one of these skirts on loan from mr reviver, It has unfortunately been cut in two to accommodate a large exhaust. Intention was to take a mould from it but this is probably lower down the priority list than moulding the rear spoiler which has taken over a year so far, (although progress has b...

Joe's 1972 GTE - Wiring loom Repair

If that Voltage regulator is just a 7810, it ideally needs a pair of capacitors at the input and output terminals. Have a feel in the heatshrink sleeve to see if they are there. Cheers for the suggestion, the powered test was a couple of weeks back and I did do a bit of digging to try and find out ...
