Got a 1976 KVA GT40

Welcome.
Would love to see photo's of your '76 registered - 1986 or later manufactored KVA.
Photo's of your rear suspension might tell you A or C type chassis (B is very uncommon as only three where made).
Did you buy the gulf coloured mk3 with the Rover 3.5 V8 and Citroen transmission.

Best regarda JP from the Netherlands.
 
This is my GT 40 in Gulf livery. Love it.

Hi Adrian,
your baby looks great. Here are some more pictures of mine. I call her "Christin" according to the Steven King's story of a vampire car.
She was not treated well from her last owner. Losts of crap solutions. During this winter she will be taken apart and modified, renovated and improved. Let's see, how she looks in next spring.
Regards Tom

Hi Tom, I have bought a new chassis and suspension and will start the upgrade in January 2024 and hopefully i will be able to enjoy the summer. The 302 motor will be rebuilt and upgraded, all new cooling and door, clips latches, vents turned to original and general upgrade on all elements. I hope Christin goes well and please keep posting pics of your developments. Kind regards, Adrian

Hi JP,

when looking atthe rear suspension, can you tell, what type it is ?

Front axle is usually the complete front axle from Cortina Mk3. Rear trailing arms usually Granada. The Renault boxes usually have a round metal tag on one of the end bolts which is stamped with the code number for the box. eg. UN1 013 is 21 turbo.
Cheers
Mike
