‘Classic cars that catch our eye that you should buy‘

Today, this classic car caught our eye…

powerspark-classic-cars-opel-gt

What is it?

It’s a 1971 Opel GT/J

Where did you find it?

For sale at on Car & Classic, HERE

Why buy it?

Well a Ferrari 250 GTO will set you back something like £23m and a Toyota 2000 GT close to £1m. So you’re getting the rear end looks of a Ferrari 250 GTO and the front end style of a Toyota 2000 GT for literally a fraction of the price.

How much is it?

£14,750

Is that a lot?

Well, there aren’t exactly many of these for sale. According to HowManyLeft.co.uk, there are 29 registered in the UK that are on the road. So importing this one and getting it registered on UK plates would increase the national population of Opel GT owners by one!

But can I fit Powerspark Electronic Ignition?

Yes, of course, we sell an electronic ignition kit suitable for many Opel models

Was this whole blog post just a cunning way to show readers that Powerspark sell a wide range of products?

Yes. And an excuse to look at cars on eBay…

Today, this classic car caught our eye…

powerspark-ignition-triumph-tr6-barn-find

What is it?

It’s a 1968 Triumph Spitfire that’s been sat at the bottom of someones garden since 1983.

Where did you find it?

For sale at on eBay, HERE

Why buy it?

With the fastback style hardtop it really is a looker, and being a barn find means it could go two ways… Either you’re about to snag a bargain, or it’s going to go for museum money.

How much is it?

Right now, at the time of writing, £99 with no bids and no reserve and a week left to run.

Is that a lot?

You can buy a good Spitfire for around £5,000, so this auction would have to end at a pretty low price to make the restoration worth the job. Who knows, that’s the fun of the online auction for you!

Yes, of course, we sell an electronic ignition kit suitable for many Triumph models

Although we don’t sell elbow grease, and it looks like you’ll need a bucket or two of that…

Classic cars that catch our eye that you should buy

Today, this classic car caught our eye…

 

1969 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Convertible

What is it?

Well, it’s a classic 1969 Karmann Ghia Convertible that’s been restored and modified rather tastefully.

It’s low, it’s slow, and it’s definitely very cool.

Where did you find it?

On eBay, here.

Why buy it?

Well, firstly it’s beautiful, rare and according to the seller, award winning. It’s also a soft top, and summer is coming. Do you need any more reasons?

How much is it?

£42,000 as stated.

Is that a lot?

Hmmm, possibly, but try building one and see how much it costs. Plus, it’ll take you a VERY long time to do.

But can I fit Powerspark Electronic Ignition? 

Yes, of course, we sell the complete distributor with electronic ignition
