Yeah maybe the speedo was/is a replacement - this has been known to happen from time to time.
When I had the GT the speedo was MPH so I've no reason to disbelieve its' authenticity (hell that's a big word so early in the morning).

From the photos, the body basically appears to be in reasonable condition (but we all know how pics look far better than the real thing) other than the n/s door, front bumper and perhaps the n/s front outer sill and the tired paint that is.
Nevertheless I do like it and if the body is as good as it is implied, then it would be a fantastic start to restore a Savana to its' former glory. If I had a place like our Kieth's pad then I'd have more than a punt at it - but I'd change the colour for sure to something like ............. I don't know ..... perhaps the interior colour of 'Goldie' -haha- .

£4300 atm, seems very expensive to me for a car that certainly needs work and is not original

Now at £5500 and the reserve not met ?????
A hell of a lot of work for such a high price in my estimation

I sure hope so otherwise does the high bidder know something we don't ?
There was a series 3 which sold for around £2700 the other week - that was a far better buy IMO oh, and I still don't believe the 'mileage' for this car

Sorry Keith, what I meant was, if I had sufficient space I'd bid for it but certainly not at the stupid price the auction is at now £7,300 !!!
