Notes: When bought the 3.0L 24V engine was tired and suffering a head gasket failure, additionally the gearbox was wrecked.
A full rebuild of both was carried out by GM6 in Penzance and All Gears of Worksop.
She's now got 204 bhp, 30 more horses than a Monza GSE, 12 .ore valves, two cams and 2 generations more advanced injection system.
It's a fun car to drive
She's an absolute hoot to drive.
Modifications: I added the alloys and genuine Irmscher rear spoiler - a period accessory.
