GILBERN INVADER Mk 2
Due to moving and losing my garage I regrettably have to sell my Gilbern
This is possibly one of the rarest cars around. ith only about 14 or 15 left on the road.
Whenever she`s out and about she always turns heads.
My car is used alot as I don`t believe in just sticking them in a garage and looking at them.
Therefore she`s taxed and MOT`d (tax is free) (MOT til June)
She is relaible and never misses a beat.
a 3. 1 Essex V6 with stage 2 heads(unleaded) with a 40DFI Weber and a 4 speed overdrive gearbox powering a MGC rear axle.
The gearbox has been rebuilt with uprated bearings and an AP clutch from Specialised Engines as the extra power broke the last one.
The rear axle has also been overhauled and the diff replaced.
I`ve also replaced the rear drums recently.
The front brakes have been upgraded from the MGB standard ones.
Both master cylinders replaced
All the Adjustable shocks and spring have been replaced (AVO`s)
There`s also an Alloy radiator and Spal fan fitted.
Headlights upgraded and rear lights changed to Ford GT40 lights(better looking than original`s)
There`s poly bushes and braided hoses. lectronic ignition. ervo. tainless exhausts. umpers re-chromed
I`ve modified the fuel filler on this car as the standard positioned one was a nightmare to
fill. ook ages. o I put it on the side of the car.
The interior of the car could do with a spruce up and some new carpets . ut I drive it as it is. /strong>
the original seats were shot and have been replaced with ones from a Scimitar SE5.
There`s probably lots that I`ve forgotten as I have owned her for 5 years and have alot
of receipts and a history file (copy of original sale doc)
Just replaced spark plugs. nd she is currently being used everyday.
If you have any questions please get in touch
I don`t want to swap it for anything other than a decent van(transporter) or take a part ex
It is advertised elsewhere so may be taken off at anytime.
