    Well. I've finally got a new BGT.
    Picking it up tommorow.

    This one is a 1.8 litre 4 cylinder (For now). '79 model in inca yellow just like the last one.
    It's fitted with a full length webasto type canvas sunroof but other than that is "stock as a rock".
    Bodyily, it's much more solid than the V8 ever was.

    I've had it added to my Volvo insurance as a temporary vehicle for 30 days. Hopefully, that will give me enough time to go through the car and make it reliable with a view to using it as a daily driver from 19th of January. Perhaps over the winter next year I'll put the V8 drive train in from EGB 765T

    Anyway, here are the eBay piccies... better ones to follow once i've got it home and cleaned it up a bit.

    Must say that really does look lovely, bargain

    Inca yellow too, just been to look at one for a possible bit of profit, though I wasn't quite so lucky as it would have cost me too much money to get it right and make a profit!
