Forum rules
For Sale Section Rules

PLEASE NOTE! Postings in this section are deleted automatically after they have not been looked at for 30 days.

1) This section is for advertising items that you have for sale. Not for the discussion of listed items. If you wish to debate the pro's & Con's of any item listed, please start a new topic in the appropriate section.

2) Please DO NOT post links to your ebay auctions. This section is NOT for the advertisement of your ebay auctions.

3) If you have a number of items to sell, post them in a single ad marked "Multiple Parts" or similar. DO NOT post many individual advertisements as this forces everyone else's listings down the page.

4) It is expected that any items advertised on the forum are described fairly & honestly. It is the duty of the seller to ensure that this is the case.

5) Items listed for sale should WHEREVER POSSIBLE* be offered with a purchase price, not asking for bids from members. If you wish to auction your item to the highest bidder I would suggest you use ebay & pay the associated fees.

6) This section is offered as a free service to enthusiasts. Any deals made are between the buyer & seller only. The MK1 forum takes no part in any transaction & the appearance of any item in this section is not a recommendation. I strongly suggest that both buyers & sellers are happy to proceed with a deal before any money or goods change hands.

7) It expected that people posting items for sale are "Active Members of this community". Any Adverts placed by members with a post count lower than 5 will be deleted.

8) The advertising of or soliciting for VIN tags, log books or any other vehicle identification documentation without it's associated vehicle is expressly forbidden. Any member breaking this rule will have his membership terminated with immediate effect.

9) If a moderator considers any postings in this section to violate either the spirit or word of these simple requests the MK1 Forum reserves the right to delete any posts without prior warning or explanation.

10) The posting of items for sale on the MK1 forum constitutes explicit acceptance of these simple rules.

11) Members posting items for sale MUST include a rough location in their profile.

It would be much appreciated if sellers could leave the sale price on adverts after the item has been sold. This acts as a good measure of current value for other sellers.

* In some cases it may not be possible for the seller to list items with a sale price. In this case, listings will be reviewed on a case by case basis by a moderator. The moderators decision will be final.

1967 Cox GTM

Post by Jeroen Booij »

A genuine Cox GTM of 1967 - 1 of the 55 early cars built with all the correct features.

I'd heard about this car being somewhere in Belgium for years but only found it a week ago. It's an abandoned project, work on it commenced about 30 years ago with the chassis and body being restored. But then the project was abandoned and dry stored since about 1993 in Belgium.

It's a complete project with most of the suspension there, but no engine. The gear linkage mechanism is present though. Also a brand new laminated windscreen and Perspex rear screen still in wrapper, replicated bonnet badge and a map full of articles. and very nice Cosmic Mk2 wheels.

There is no paperwork whatsoever though.
I still have hope that we will be able to find out more about its past as I believe it must have been n the road in the UK prior to coming to the continent. It's located with me in The Netherlands now.

Over the years I have been asked often if I knew of a car like this for sale. Here is one, find another!

Price: £2950.00

What a great find!

Is there any way it could be registered on the continent?

Registering it here would be very tricky nowadays.

Even harder since Mike Worthington-Williams passed away recently- he was brilliant at helping / getting this sort of thing through the DVLA 'maze'.

Well, everything is possible but it won't be a straightforward job.
But I believe it must have been registered in the UK prior to coming over to Belgium, so it may be easier to dig in the car's earlier history. That's at least what I will be trying first. Somebody, somewhere will know more.

I've been told it has been advertised in MiniWorld at around 1995 (I think it must have been earlier though), but I can't find anything.
Been through all the ads from 1991 to 1996 but it's not there (or I haven't looked good enough).
It may ring a bell to somebody here..?
