Re: E-type owner looking for a Gen 1 Liftback

A Gt is the right vehicle to Buy , however caution over the 18r-g twin cam engine is necessary. Life span of the original engine is likely to be 100000, before major rebuild. However when the engine is likely to need replacement , in the past many people swapped it for a replacement API engine. Thes...

Re: E-type owner looking for a Gen 1 Liftback

Hi trev - The spec of Uk cars was that the UK gt had a twin cam 18r-g engine with close ratio gearbox and standard LSD. The other LSD fitted to UK cars was the ta22gt and TA23gt , but only 200 of the first and 100 of the second imported. The Ra28 gt had vinyl trim seats , not cloth, silver dash and ...

Re: E-type owner looking for a Gen 1 Liftback

Hi trev 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...

But 24 years ago I bought another Ta22gt in bronze which i still have and then a year or so lat...
