Hi Steve

Very jealous of your garaged find. I had a white 5GTT for many years and one of the most fun cars I've owned and some days wished I'd kept it and stored away.

A very rewarding car to drive quickly without waving goodbye to your driving license.

Great project and Great cars. Like others here I had a Pearl White one in the early nineties and it was a real pocket rocket. As i remember the pedal box was slightly offset so on a long journey i'd get back and hip ache! Good luck with it and I look forward to the updates.

Looking good and this will be interesting to follow.

I don't know if you still in the lowestoft area but you could try brooke pit for the parts, they specialize in breaking french cars

Well, the engine did turn over at 4th turn of the key. Surprisingly the engine
is showing good compression too! Brakes will be replaced throughout...

Going to enjoy this thread.

Always hankered after the gt turbo, but had a rs turbo instead.

Good luck.
