I looked at the blue gt about 5 years ago when it was for sale in Cornwall.
I was put off by the non gt parts fitted at the time,single carb.and exhaust manifold and system and had the heater removed that I thought was odd. The non gt colour along with a fare amount of corrosion had me worried about the amount of work. The tyres were perished and although I made a cheeky bid I was not surprised it was refused.
I then saw the car for sale about 18 months later and it looked about the same but was in a different location so assumed someone did buy it.
From the pictures now it is difficult to say if all the general bits have now been done but the twin carbon are a good start.If they have its a possible bargain.
If they have not then is an expensive price of metal to practice welding on.
Good to see it still about though.

'68 Kestral that needs re-commissioning. Looks very tidy though, and if it does turn out to be a rusty pile of junk at least you've got a low mileage twin carb engine to play with.
