Thanks William, I just wondered. I knew someone over here with one of those Autodelta GTVs and it looked the same

Please do keep us posted on the project.

B20 s.2, Appia C10 unrestored

I recently saw a restored Callaway turbo GTV, a local American varient on the GTV6, with twin turbos done in the 1980's. This one has  a very nicely reworked engine bay, direct fuel injection, etc., and had been fully reworked. The guy claimed 400 hp, and has computer mapping ability for the motor. He said he had a combination of 2.5 liter crank, 3 liter block, 2 cam heads, etc. and that the 2.5 liter crank was balanced independently of the front pulley - so that he could change that (for different belts) without affecting crank balance.

He also said the power steering from the Milano did in fact just bolt right up to the GTV-6, as some of us have long suspected it would. Wish I'd had a camera....

It certainly looks like a good rust free shell, a few questions is the bonnet alloy? but it has a later series center chrome trim? and the wheels look like the correct 4th series ones but they don't have the rolled rims? Looks like it has a Nardi steering wheel but still has the original (better in my view)  column change.
I'm sure Ron Francis could supply most of the missing bits.

I am certainly planning to ask Ron to ransack his stocks.  He's already sorting out a collection of Aprilia bits for me, so I'll have to extend the shopping list.

What a find, well done and good luck with it all. Please do post progress with the restoration, are you starting straightaway, it sounds as though you have a couple of other cars vying for your time !!!!

Whereabouts are you based, my B20 is still in the early stages in Essex.

Hi Andy,

I'm not too far away; a Thames crossing and whip clockwise round the M25 to J8 will do it.

Will post a report once I've got the car and been over it properly.  Bound to be a curate's egg, I'm sure...

It's on the way... dragged up this morning from long-term underground storage blinking (actually probably not, given the absence of 'eyes') into the light and onto the back of a transporter for the trip over the pyrenees and across France.

I hope the floor of the transporter can take the weight of the tasteless monster overhead.

The question of what wheels are on the car was raised by Sliding_Pillar.  Now that I've got a better photographic view of the front of the car it's clear the front wheels don't match; the off-side has rolled-rims, near-side doesn't.

Generally the car looks as it should (some damage at the front lower sections, but no outward signs of rot - apart from, possibly, a small patch on the near side behind the rear wheel?).  This time next week I should be able to report on its real condition.  Waiting to inspect it in person is a pleasantly nervous sensation.

For once you'd have been pleased to have the car "upstairs" drip a bit of oil.

It must be like Christmas Eve...used to be...

I did have a cheaper quote for transport than the one I went with, but that was was 'uncovered'; which wouldn't have been ideal with a paint-less car.  

In particular, I didn't fancy the interior being filled with water for a week.  In fact I'd also rather that 'Thunderbirds' car overhead didn't drop its sump contents into the interior...

I would have thought the transporter has a very high centre of gravity with that lump up top!
Hope it doesn't fall over.

Open invitation if you wish to have a look at my 4th Ch3499 that is kept on the Surrey/Berkshire border.

It's an ex-Chris Gawne car that had a lot of work done on it by Peter Harding.

Best of luck and great to have another in the UK.

Thanks Adam, I might well do that.  As it happens, your car is closer in chassis number to my 6th Series (3894) than it is to the 'Spanish car'.  I wonder how many changes there were in specification and detail during IV Series production...  With luck, the Spanish car won't have been messed around too much (apart from the careless loss of its lights and external trim that is).

Just spoke to the driver of the truck about drop-off (scheduled for tomorrow am).  

"You do know what state it's in, don't you?!", spoken in incredulous tones; "No-one told me what it was going to be like."

He clearly thinks I'm some sort of imbecile, or perhaps the victim of a terrible scam.  Perhaps he's right.

Priceless, when he delivers you can maybe tell him how much you paid for it. Should make for an amusing reaction. The words 'how much??!' comes to mind.....
