Been undercoated many times during it’s life. Last time was about 5 years ago, and will need to be done again soon.
I’m sure there is more.

Before the sale I need to do a cv boot as its got a slight rip, replace the throttle position connector plug (on its way to me) and then run it through an mot

Bad points. It’s starting to get some rust under the sill at the rear arch
Gearbox fill plug needs to be welded. As a tempory fix I have jb welded it and has fixed the issue.
Got slight lifter tick
Abs disabled, needs sensor. Light hotwired for mot.

If I think of anything else it has got, or need I’ll post them here.

Looking at around £3500

Try to take some pictures at some point today
Cheers.

That’s a bargain for someone.
You would make more by selling the performance parts and return her close to stock and you would still get 3k for her.

IMO, I would be a good idea to take a break from driving the car until your interest (and the weather) in the 3000GT starts to pick up again.

If you sell it for such a daft price, you won’t find anything that can be as interesting (let alone as fast) for £3k and you would have to spend silly amounts to get back into the game - which many people do when they try other cars and learn they don’t live up to the hype!

Wait until May/June time and then drive it, I seriously doubt you will want to sell it after that.

Just thought id update this post as the PM’s are rolling in.
The plan at the moment is to get it through the mot when i have a bit of time, then to try and drive it about for a while to see if i can get some interest back for it. Maybe the nice weather might indeed change my mind.
only problem is ive been blasting around on bikes for the past few weeks and my interest in my cars is falling. hopefully when the 3000gt is road ready it may put a big fat smile on my face, and will fall in love again…lol.
Cheers…

I have to agree with you motorbikes are more exciting and the adrenaline is immense.
I love them but now I’ve got more sense I think as I’m getting older and cars are just that little bit more safe.

I don’t ride bikes, but driven and been in quite many cars (modern and old skool), if you find the 3000GT doesn’t compete in thrils vs a fast bike then pretty much 99% of alternative cars out there would feel even more mundane!

But if you gone off cars and just want to ride bikes then fair play as that’s your cup of tea. :+1:
