Hard to find these early 1275 GTS - this one with its original 10 inch wheels (as appeared on early GTs before they went to the 12 inch). Looks to be relatively original from a distance, but has had some inyteresting vinyl work done to the foor and quite a bit of engine work. Not much needed to bring it back to factory (which is what I'd want to do).
This one was advertised on Ebay UK in Oct 2019 with a classified price of 8,950 GBP. The seller noted the following comments at the time it was advertised:
This 64 Daytona was offered for sale by auction on the Silverstone auctions website - see the link to the original listing on Silverstone's site here. In the original listing (we arfe unsure whether it has sold), the sellers noted the following about the car:
Spotted on Ebay UK in June 2019 - Colt Galant 2000 GTO GS-R. Introduced in 1973 the export GTO GS-R (Grand Sport & Rally) was only available in select right hand drive countries and featured unique factory fitted wheel arch extensions and modified front valance. The interior had a special leather trimmed steering wheel and an eight dial instrument panel. Power was supplied by a 2 litre straight four OHC engine mated to a five speed gearbox. The styling was definitely influenced by contemporary American muscle cars and there is a striking resemblance to Ford's Mustang.
My car was originally LHD but was factory converted to RHD as the US market did not want the 3.6ltr 6 cylinder manual variant. There are visual signs of this where the front indicators are the larger type + a blanking plate on the passenger door where the wing mirror controls used to be. The colour has since changed in 2009 from Cranbury (CEE) to a slightly redder finish. In the U.K. there are only about 275 left of this variant according to cars that are taxed or on sorn.
Spotted on Anglia Car Auctions in August 2018 - not many details provided, asking 8,000 GBP.. Advertisement stated: Stored in their hay barn for thirty‑two years, the vendor describes it as remaining remarkably sound and complete. The engine turns. It comes with the old style V5, several documents confirming the warranted 37,215 miles, owner's handbook, oil charts and tax discs from 1983 to 1987.
