Car of Many Colors
Several weeks ago I purchased an 86 GTV6 that had been listed here on the BB. This will be my next project car after I finish the 164 (hopefully in about a year and a half). Ideally I wouldn't have the next project yet, but when the right car in the right location at the right price presents itself, it is hard to take a pass.
The car runs OK, so I will only do required repairs during this period. Car has 100K miles. Like my 164, it does not need significant parts, but it needs a tremendous amount of labor. The body is worse than the 164 (the upper part of both doors was sprayed plum over the original red); I assume these doors are from another car, since the key that works the door locks won't work the hatch lock. The mechanicals are comparable to the 164, and the interior condition is about the same as was the 164 before I restored it. The car has factory air, but no belt; PO reports that it never had a belt on it while he owned it. Eventually I think I will try to get the A/C working; if I can't get it to cool well enough, I may pull it all off the car. I don't see how people can stand the noise of the HVAC fan on its highest speed; it is much, much louder than the fan in my Alfetta.
I have Zender front and rear bumpers that I will probably put on the car. When I finish with this project, I will almost certainly sell it; I prefer my Alfetta for driving around in town.
