1959-1967 GILBERN GT specifications

1959-1967 GILBERN GT specifications Classic and Performance Car

Good looking little 2+2 from Wales, with a glassfibre body over a tube frame. To some degree or other the 277 built were sold as kit-cars to avoid purchase tax, so parts and spec can vary a little between cars. They were initially offered with A-series or MGA engines, but most survivors you’ll find will have MGB power, along with front suspension from the same source. Thanks to an enthusiastic club parts sourcing is much better than you might expect, right down to repro bodies and chassis if necessary.
