1983 G T / J For Sale

Irmscher Man

Recommended Posts

I am posting this on behalf of a member who is reluctantly selling his pride and joy.

This car has been his passion for many years but as he is now retired, he finds it more difficult to drive (and especially to park without power steering).

It deserves to go to a good home as it is a rare model. There are VERY FEW of the early C series GT/J's left in the club.....this may be one of only a couple left, so is a rare model in very original condition. I have not seen the car but have chatted extensively to Peter about the car and just talking to him, you get the feeling he would rather keep it but finds it harder to drive and harder still to work on. He is very keen that it goes to an enthusiast and is cared for in the same way he has looked after it for over 20 years.

Sorry - No pics available at present. I may be able to pop in soon to take some photos when I am passing through Yorkshire next.

Colour: Carmine Red
