  • Renault Alpine GTA V6 Turbo Project

    Hello all.

    A bit different to the usual for sale cars this one!!! The car in question is currently sat in the garage of my little house in Gloucester. Its 3 years ago since I moved to Germany so it really needs to go as all its doing is reducing my rental income!

    I've owned it for a few years now always with the intention of getting it up on the road but frankly progress has been slow due to extreme laziness.

    Its an 88 E plate GTA turbo showing 107k. It still needs quite a bit of work to get it up and running again. Since I have had it I have done a few bits and pieces, I replaced both head gaskets and fitted a new clutch slave cylinder. I haven't quite finished re-assembling everything but I don't think there is any reason it shouldn't start once everything has been re-fitted.

    I have also fitted a brand new garrett turbocharger, not a recon, this came from garrett direct. I hate to think how much one would cost from renault.

    Its been stored at roadspeed in stroud for a couple of years, during which the only progress was to have a fiddle with the brakes. They seem to have misplaced the stainless steel exhaust which was unused, but have promised to find it

    Its been resprayed Silver (decent finish but there is a couple of runs in the laquer I have spotted) it was originally the alpine metallic blue. There is some damage to the back spoiler and the front isn't perfect as can be seen from the photo's. I have both the original alloys and also the weller black steelies that can be seen in the photo's. Back tyres are shot.

    The interior really needs a good clean, its dusty and the carpets show a bit of green, but its dry and definately salvagable.

    Ive loads of boxes of bits, i think pretty much everything is there to complete the job. It just requires someone with a bit of enthusiasm and time to get all the little jobs done

    I'm only looking for £1500, so you can potentially get a bargain here if you do the work needed yourself.

    I will be making a rare trip to the property between 24th and 27th sept to organise a tenant change, so that would be the ideal time to look or buy!

    Drop me a PM if interested.
