    Good that you checked Paul Gilpatrick's site, 330 Register. As its a GTC it's not listed on Kery Chesbro's site; I checked for you. Next step is view the car; looks like you are on E coast so ask (pay) to have it inspected. Since you just posted you might want to wait a day or so for others to view and reply. s/n 9139 is closer to you in Atlanta & might be worth a look. If I can help please contact at hornerljh@aol.com.

    Thanks for your kind reply. I have not seen the one in Atlanta yet, but I do not have high expectations. I was e-mailed some pics and it looks a bit run-down. It has a different (still a Nardi) steering wheel, a few other non-standard parts but most glaring is the oil pressure guage is missing and the hole is partly filled with a cheap aftermarket oil guage! I wonder if you do something that crappy to something so obvious, what might be hidden under the hood??

    I like that asking price. Maybe the GTC will be the next big discovery.

    Maybe try posting in the So Cal section also? Maybe someone in the area would look at it for you? Sure looks good in the pix ;-) also the old bio sounds good.... I love the silver! Too many are red (like mine).

    Good luck

    I don't know anything about the car at Lake Forest except that it has been there for some time. I have not seen it in person. The dealership has a good reputation in Chicagoland and they get involved in many local events.
