Hi folks,

Excuse me if this has been mentioned before, but is this a genuine ad??

http://www.autotrade...37?photonumber=

I note that the pics seem to be from Australia.... but the car seems to be LHD. I have been in touch with the seller and they seem a little hesitant to provide details - and have assured me the car is RHD.

Seller is Ross from Ferntree Gully, Melbourne (not me! although I am Ross and used to live in Ferntree Gully).

I am still hunting the perfect GTO replica ....

Ross

It is definitely RHD.  The picture is inverted.  You can see the SU carb in the engine bay on the other side.

Ross, as I've mentioned to you before there is no such thing as a perfect GTO replica. They are never finished nor perfect, they are a process.

You need to look out for rust under the fibreglass. All can be repaired of course but it's harder going (more expensive) if you have to cut away the fibreglass to repair the unibody and then replace the fibreglass.

Good luck, your patience will be rewarded and this one looks like something worth further assessment.

That's not perfect. For starters, holes have been drilled in the recess for the headlight covers, presumeably to secure the trims. Eveyone knows that tabs should be created inside the headlight scoops for this. Need I go on...

Peter thanks.... I should be clear that I mean 'perfect for me' and not a perfect replica - I think yours is the only one that will come close!!

Seller has gone quiet so might be all irrelevant....

That was 8 years ago, it would be interesting to know how the market has gone since then?

The original add had a L series engine and the last pics were of a V8 Toyota engine. BTW  is that your car Peter. Almost ready for the road by the looks.

Different cars, the original link has a 260z style dashboard. The 1 you posted from Shannon's is definitely a 240z dash.

Different motors also, I doubt they are the same car, although not impossible.

Ross got an email today.

Hi Gavin, and thanks for your answer.    Yes, I am
wanting to sell the car, & have had a few bites, but
nothing really definite as yet.  The people who are
interested are all interstate, and no one has actually
looked at it as yet, so I thought I would try the local
car clubs. It is running, and drives very well, but
needs rear wheel bearings,  a complete going over,
a tune up,  and is not registered.  If you can help, I
will be very grateful.    It can be looked at anytime,
with 1 days notice.  My name is Ross Pearson, &
I am in Ferntree Gully, Vic.  0419.877.101.
    Thanking you in anticipation.  Cheers.  Ross.

Yeah sorry I didn't notice because I was signed into my GoogleDrive when I shared them so it looked like it was working. I'll re-post again. He told me that the reason there was 2 that looked the same is that a factory in Ringwood was producing them at 1 point and they built a couple that looked exactly the same.
