Exhaust midbox floor clearence

I've got about an inch (25mm) at the narrowest point (back of the 'midbox'), but the floor slopes upwards towards the front and over the chassis rail that the front seat mounts are fixed through. There seems to be plenty of air around the midbox under mine. It's a Stainless system, and the box is qu...

Coupe heated rear window

If anyone would like a sample of the window seal I had made you have only to ask! Might just do the job. Alex. I don't see why it shouldn't, as the GTC Hardtop glass is quite thick. I've got the seal you had manufactured, and I've got a Coupe heated rear screen :D Stumpy 81, i just need to go on an...

pop-up headlights NOW INCLUDING HIDDEN HEADLIGHTS

I can't imagine they would be very effective :lol:
However, I kinda like it. It's certainly unusual

What was wrong with those people

The "people" making stuff are probably not that fussed, as that's what they get paid to do. It's the "people" who design it that may not have thought far enough ahead :?

T reg GTC

What's not been declared yet, is when the conversion took place, but I'm not convinced it was a long time ago. I thought it was not tax exemption as much as MOT exemption that would be the bigger concern, as if the body style was changed within the last 30 years, it will continue to require an MOT (...

T reg GTC

There is no suggestion there is anything wrong with the car, it's just that it was not as advertised. A GTC will bring a premium price Did we ever get the information on Chassis Registration identity ??. Well it made more than I paid for mine, but significantly less than I've spent on it since :rol...

By way of an update, this car sold at the auction last weekend. The purchaser had some concerns, and subsequently found this thread. They have contacted me and following some discussions, challenged the owner through the auctioneers to prove its authenticity as a GTC. The previous owner made some "i...

If a car has been exported and the number plate not retained by the previous owner, the dvla can then legitimately add it to their for sale site as it reverts back to their ownership. So maybe someone else has purchased the number? Very likely, or even the plate was sold before exporting. Many poss...

Unless someone’s cloned Philip Mason’s car :D An update would be appreciated! I've looked up Philip, and yes there is a photo of a GTC with this plate :oops: But, that's where it gets confusing. It's Olympic Blue and RHD. There are a number of different owners noted, including in Holland - where al...

GTC Manual Gearbox removal

Did you cut the plate? Dennis, I'm close to reassembling mine after replacing the timing gear. I struggled too, to get the sump off, though I'm wondering if it would be easier to trim the lip of the sump instead of trying to cut out the bell housing plate - which won't be that easy whilst in situ i...
