    1979 308 gt4 major service

    I was time for a major service on this original canadain spec 1979 series 3 gt4, the engine and gearbox were rebuilt in 2004 as was the brakes and suspension. The cosmetics were above average but it was time to bring this car back to its former gloryP1000342.JPGP1000343.JPGP1000344.JPGP1000345.JPGP1000346.JPGP1000347.JPGP1000348.JPGP1000349.JPG

    The door panels have never been refinished as the natural connolly hides show little wear.
