This car just has to be the first GTCS I bought exactly 19 years ago today. It was the one year anniversary of 9/11. Paid $19k to a fellow in downstate Illinois. Sold it two years later for $41k. It ended up back in downstate Illinois and the new owner had put the stock air cleaner etc and valve covers back on (which went with the car) and took off the 10 spokes it had in favor of the SS wheels. Then in 2018 When I was looking for my current GT/CS, I found that this one had sold at a Silverstone auction in England in 2015. The VIN was listed in that auction and indeed it was the one I owned. I also found it had been sold at a Bonham's Auction in the UK in 2013. That page is still up and here is the link.

Given the somewhat unique saddle interior, the condition and options, this just has to be the car I loved and lost.

I had put it in the registry. Still there under my name. 8R01C150125

The Euro conversion makes the price $46,058 USD. I would pay that all day long for this car. I am going to email them for the VIN and see what they think it would cost to get it to an east coast port.

The selling dealer got back to me today and it is the one I owned. I knew it was even without the verification of VIN. A rough estimate to get it to an east coast port is $2,700.

If anyone is looking for a near perfect GT/CS, you will not go wrong with this one even with the shipping cost.

Dave,
Do you happen to have the Marti Report for that car?

Sorry, no. I only had the standard Marti on paper and it went with the car.

Was it a true Red and Saddle car or was this a car that was color changed?

That sounds about right. I remember now that it was not the original color

IMO that is a big price for a car painted a incorrect color.

Perhaps. This car is top shelf unless it has been neglected. While not being the original color might hold it back a little, IMO the original color would also hold it back a little.
