    Any thoughts?

    Hi,

    I don't suppose anyone has any thoughts on either of these two -

    https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1301366
    https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1320616

    Both a bit over my budget but I'm willing to be persuaded by good (honest!) feedback!

    Thanks,

    Matt

    I was going to say that the Gardner Douglas has potential. They are great kits. Looks like it could be a nice car with a wheel change., Only problem is why its registered as a beige car, has it been resprayed?
    Interior looks nice and it also has a sbc 350.

    It’s find people’s taste fascinating. I really like wire wheels, especially on a silver car, but you don’t see many on a Cobra. They’re also a pig to clean - even more so than the many contours on Halibrands.

    Beige ?? I know there was a pink Cobra once but I’ve never seen a beige one...

    What’s the leg room and elbow room like in a GD compared to Pilgrim?

    Sounds like it might have been the off white gel coat. I remember the pink one. Had a Cobra painted on the bonnet and a 427cu in engine I seem to remember.

    Silly question - where did you get 'registered as beige' from?!

    That says "Cream" for colour, however. The make is down as "Gardner Douglas Kit" which is correct and the rest of the details look right, colour ought to be easy to correct on the V5.
