My GT3 is now Staffordshire Mustard Yellow, which I reckon must add 20% to its value.  :D

Which is told to be strengthening the rear tubular engine/gearbox frame significantly. Less flex under high load mean that you can install a bit stiffer springs as well as a bit stiffer arb's.

I will be installing one from a Sport300 on my car, as soon as I have the missing parts, the small special designed cups that have to be welded on to the existing chassis frame. And when I have repaired the engine crane in the garage, which I will use to lift the complete body shell. I have collected some special cushioned super strong nylon oversized laces to attach through the body Shell. Oh well, in due time.

Kind regards,

Jacques

I just dont see the "owned by Wickens" add any real value to the car. Its a point of interest but no more than that.

It looks a nice colour and if presented in good clean working order should be the same value as a good solid turbo car.

What value a decent G turbo is these days Im not sure.

This has to be one of the crappiest Esprit ads I've ever seen. Very sloppy.

"STRIKING GREEN LEATHER" - In fact it's so striking we never posted photos of it. "WE ANTICIPATE THE VEHICLE BEING READY C AUGUST 2017" - So, it's all done, then?

I think the 308 GTS would be a steal if someone could bag it near lower estimate, the 208 a little high, and the rest about right. 

It's nice to see Coy's giving the S4 genuine Classic/Collector status at last.
