    Looks like a typo - someone accidentally hit the 5 key when they meant 2.

    This car suffered from a terrible write-up. The guy said he didn't know anything about cars, and he was right! Plus, the guy that wrote the listing hadn't seen the car in 6 months. The rust on this car is minimal, and the part that you can see in the one picture is just surface rust on the lower rail. Rust is not a major issue with this car at all. The paint, however, is a disaster. It is worse than Maaco. All of the rubber has blue overspray on it. The car was stored since '91 in (you won't believe this!) a trailer park! The interior is quite good, except for the seats. It is 99.99 percent complete, with the only missing parts being the knob to reset the odometer and the knob on the sliding vent along the rear window. It has some small dents, but other then that, it's really straight. The car will be restored, and it will be red again.

    How do I know this? I'm looking at it....in my garage!

    Congrats on your purchase! I'm really jealous of your courage. (I mean that, I'm not trying to be cute!)

    In my humble opinion, I feel you should think twice before changing the color to red. I've always thought that 330/365 GTC's actually look better in blue or silver shades, including the one it is now.

    Yes, I always liked them in silver. This car was red origianlly (and for that matter, it still is - it just has blue paint on top of it!). I dunno for sure what color it will end up. But you will see it here!

    I have questions for you guys:

    I notice that the knock-offs on the wire wheels have the prancing horse on them. Many I have seen do not. They just have plain ones. Is this because many wire wheels are after-market? Or did theycome both ways?

    How common/uncommon is air conditioning in these cars?

    Did anyone else on this forum go all the way up to b/f Egypt to look at this car besides me? If so, what were your impressions? I heard a couple of people looked at it......

    Thanks!

    Congratulations on the GTC! I bought my 67 GTC in December after looking for a long time. As for the Borranis, mine have the prancing horsies, but I've also seen the Rudge-Whitworth "hand" logo as well.

    If I can answer any questions, let me know...

    Hi argtv7,

    Glad to hear the car was much better than describedby the seller's representative! Have you been looking for a GTC for a long time? Are you planning on doing a full-blown, soup to nuts restoration or do you plan on making it a driver? Could we please see some more photos of your new acquisition? BTW, I hope to retire in your neck of the woods some day. Sonoma and Napa are absolutely breaktaking!

    Cheers,
    Barchetta

    Yes, the restoration will be thorough, and the car will probably be auctioned in Scottsdale next Jan. Let me reiterate that this car is NOT a rust bucket, and the worst thing about the car is the crappy paint job. I can't wait to see her when she's right.

    First of all, congratulations on your new purchase!

    I took the drive up from San Fran to look at it. I'd pretty much agree with you that almost all the pieces were there, and the body and frame were in decent shape - an excellent resto candidiate. I personally just couldn't get the math to work out in my favor in doing a rolling restoration - I have rather limited engine overhaul skills, which adds 25K to the cost for me. I was actually looking for a set of books and tools, which were unfortunately not with the car when I looked at it.

    Interesting that you would choose Scottsdale as a sales venue - my sense is that Italian prices were softening at B-J this and last year, thanks to American muscle car and hot rod mania. I go every year, so I can't wait to see the car returned to it's former glory.

    That one appears to be in a trailer park as well. Weird.

    Has anyone seen it in person? It doesn't look so bad in the photos. This is at least the second time it's been on Ebay right? Didn't meet reserve last time I guess. If it's true the engine was rebuild and can be used now (don't know how long it's sat...), I'm tempted to just buy it and do the brakes and other mechanical stuff that is likely bad because of inaction myself, tidy it up a bit and just drive it as is for a while before passing it along to someone to restore or doing one myself. I'm a 2+2 fan, though I realize they aren't popular and thus suffer at resale...

    If you notice the van sitting next to it says "Estate Liquidators" on it; that's the outfit that has it on eBay. That might imply that Mr. E. Liquidator likely lives in the pictured abode, and likely the car was brought to his place. Just guessing.

    Liquidator claims that $13k was spent on engine. Pictures don't seem to show this.

    Slim,

    I went this route. I bought the car with the engine freshly rebuilt by a known builder. I've since rebuilt every other system on the car in order to keep it on the road.

    Assuming it isn't bought for parts, the new owner may be lucky but chances are that car will provide plenty of opportunity for headaches.

    That said, for the right price, I'd love to have it in my shed to mess with as time permits.

    Regards,

    Art S.
