My series one Gamma Berlina now with Enzo at Autocasa in Coventry, and back in the daylight since 1986. First job, after changing oil, flushing coolant and replenishing with fresh fuel and loosening off power steering pump drive, is to see if the engine runs. Will know in a couple of days. If you know Gammas then you also know, these are interesting times.

Assume it turns over manually? Check the condition of the cam belts anyway. Andy C had a big mistake starting his laid up GB - think valve snapped or some such ruining head. Good luck . Nice car!

Im assured it has been running, but this is my fifth Gamma, so not taking any chances. Once I know the engine is sound the work begins.

Congrats Peter, hoping the re-commissioning all goes swimmingly......but more photos required, hard to find or played the long game when acquiring same?

Peter,

That Gamma looks lovely, especially that bright blue interior.
Good luck with it.
