This is my latest project. The GT6 is similar to the Spitfire, but with a 6 cyl engine and
a roof. It's a solid car, no rust, rebuilt engine, good interior. I've rebuilt the braking
system and clutch hydraulics, put in a new rocker shaft and arms, rebuilt the carbs,
and gave everything a good cleaning and waxing. It's a great running car. Most of
my time has been spent cleaning up and painting the engine bay. With a bonnet that
opens as these do, it's easier to work on than most cars.

Oct. 2004 After almost 4 years I've had my
first major breakdown...very hard shifting
into first and second gears. Time for a gearbox
rebuild. Tearing the box apart revealed that
the inside gear of the 1st/2nd gear syncro hub
had fallen apart. Fortunately, all the pieces stayed
inside the hub, not causing any further damage.
The inner gear is a "no longer available"
item, but SpitBits is great at locating NLA
parts. The gearbox is rebuilt and ready to
go back into the car.
