Time warp Cox sold

Another unspoilt and early Cox GTM (more here and here) appeared for sale lately in Stockport, Cheshire and has meanwhile been sold for 1,800 pounds. According to the seller the car was on the road for three years only before being garaged for the next forty years. A time warp!

No flared arches, no added spoilers. This Cox GTM is truly unmolested
V5 documents are missing so unfortunately the new owner will have to re-register it
Cortina rear light clusters are a cool period touch. Hole in rear end seems odd  
A thorough clean should do a lot good here. Note typical period thread on tyres

Steel monocoque is rusty but at least the interior is unspoilt too. Dash is as in early brochure

Engine and gearbox were not included in sale. Rear subframe is said to be okay 
Chassis number GTW/1/130GTM may be of 30th car produced from batch of 55 in 1967
