I am selling off my GT6 nearly complete project for bad reasons.   First let's look at the good stuff. I have completed the following: Repaint (about a 7 out of 10 job).  It was done with Eastwood single stage. It looks good for a driver. White offset pin stripeComplete engine rebuildComplete new wiring looms throughout (and I think most of Lucas stuff is replaced)Alternator conversion with electronic ignitionRefaced wood dashNew carpet throughoutNew. uninstalled headlinerNew brake lines throughoutNew fuel linesNew Fuel pumpNew exhaustNew BatteryNew rims and tiresNew window seals for windshield and rearUndercoated all floorboardsUninstalled air shocks for rearAll New badgesA ton of extra parts and the original red cover shop manual. 2 more drive shafts with the right flange for the MK1 on it. Currently the car turns over and has spark. compression is dialed in for all cylinders.  Clear title98% of all remaining parts included.   I have new or used in good to excellent shape. This car has a number of small things to get it running. but I got it to this stage.   A serious hand injury with a table saw last May has made it nearly impossible to finish this beauty. as I have little dexterity to that hand to complete the job.   Sucks for me big time. but I need to do what I have to.  
A race mechanic rebuilt the engine prior to me buying it. so I know that the engine is in good shape.   The transmission shifts through all gears properly and into neutral without a problem. but I haven't confirmed if that was rebuilt.   Slave cylinder is a bit sticky. so that may need to be replaced.   I haven't run the lines to the clutch yet. so I don't know if that will be the case. Worst case scenario. you get a new slave cylinder for 40 bucks and you'll be good to go.
ALL Fuel line and brake lines are brand new copper setup from Spitbits or British Victoria…I don't remember which. I bought nearly all replacement parts from both those distributors. Please ask questions. and I will answer as best as I can.   I got it started briefly with starter fluid when I worked on it last summer. So spark is good.  
This sucks big eggs that I have to get rid of this. but like I said I don't have the dexterity with bum fingers. Buy this and you'll be the envy of the neighborhood. Frustrated I need to get rid of this.  

Question #1 Where was the rust at? How long have you owned it? Original engine and tranny? Engine and commission numbers?
Completely recoated under belly and inside compartment. I recoated inside and there was no replaced sheet metal nor rust. Same week the frame. There was a repair to the lower left corner of the door which was professionally done. I completely stripped and built up all body  before epoxy prime and paint. so I saw everything. I don't have the commission number of hand and will publish that tonight. Original engine and tranny. I have been working on it for 2 years. owned it for 3.  
Question 2 Why the MK3 bonnet on the Mk1?  
I dont know. The original MK1 was MIA and replaced when I receive the car.  The frame is straight. I had it checked by a local triumph rebuilder. so it wasnt in an accident.
Question #3  How much to ship to the UK?
Honestly. I have zero clue on this.  I am willing to load it onto a truck in my driveway and let them take it to wherever.  Best I can do.  I am not set up for that kind of shipping.  If you are interested in checking further. I am more than happy to prepare for the move.
