1965 Gilbern GT 1800, silver with red interior, full MOT and historic free road tax. Total production of the Gilbern GT was approximately 200 with less than 50 remaining today, making this a rare car! I have a full history file from date of first registration to present day, including period photographs showing the car together with magazine literature and service receipts. The Engine, Gearbox, Overdrive, Front suspension and Braking system are MGB based. Rear suspension is very good, Gilberns own, With trailing arms and coil overs. Briefly; The car was the subject of a body-off restoration in the 90s and a new chassis was commissioned. The engine was removed and rebuilt and a suspension overhaul carried out. A full restoration of the interior was carried out to include new dashboard, headlining, carpets and renovation of the original ‘Restall’ reclining front seats. The car was also completely rewired. 2013 the bodywork was stripped to bare gelcoat and professionally resprayed in silver. During the last 2 years I have carried out the following work. Wax oiling the chassis, Full brake overhaul including new discs, callipers, pads and brake hoses. New front tyres, Stainless exhaust, Water pump, All engine and oilcooler hoses, Prop shaft UJs and many other small jobs. The car is now in first class condition, drives beautifully and must surely be one the best GTs available. I would consider a 30s/40s/50s interesting classic in part exchange.
