That is a seriously sexy automobile you got.....
Getting a Liftback should not be too difficult, though it may take some time, as they do get more rare. If you don't mind a LHD, there are still a few available on the continent.
Anyway, good luck with the search, keep's informed.

Expect to pay £15k for a decent uk 28 lift back if you can find one. Must be gt with 18r-g twin cam engine as the st is underpowered and won't run on unleaded. You will have a search on as values are rising rapidly and the supply of decent uk cars is very limited. Might be sensible to import from Japan but with the Value of the yen against the pound increasing there might not be much in it. By the time you have taken shipping costs and import duty into account. Going to put my 28gt on the road next year as tax exempt , but must admit I prefer the coupe to drive but the lift back does have the looks. I am uk if I hear of one will post on here as I run the register for uk cars cheers Malcolm.

Probably a fair price in view of the mileage , however the issue is its an ST , would need an upgrade to 18r-g , these engines are making £1000 an d then you have got to change it, Also over the gt the St has no close ratio gearbox, or limited slip diff , inferior interior and reduced specification. The secret is being patient, allow at least a couple of years to find one as there is so few of them about in the UK, and if needs paint and work then it will eat cash, so buy the best GT you can find, if you want to make contact my mobile no is 07975718146, as I run the register I know where most of them are.

And gearboxes other than being 4 or 5 speed were the same(T or W) no matter what the trim level in my 40 year owner experience with these cars. But I'm still learning, and would like to know more. I'm really only familiar with the North American specs first hand. Neil
