    1990 Consulier GTP Targa build

    Looks like I am the first to start a thread on the GTP.
    First, photos that were sent to me with the car at the factory.
    Factory is at the Florida coast, I am on the Oregon coast.

    - - - Updated - - -

    The car was delivered today (7-12-13) to the guy that is going to hopefully prep it for travel.

    Re: 1990 Consulier GTP Targa

    Does the car have a top or are you going to bring along an industrial roll of stretch wrap in case it rains?

    Re: 1990 Consulier GTP Targa

    What year/number is it Johnny?

    You know industrial packing wrap could work great for rain. I have tons of that stuff right here and I never thought of it. Just need to fit a rod or something towards the top of the windshield to secure to.

    Congrats on the purchase, I think that supertrap muffler would be the first to go.

    I was told....New battery installed today. Turn key and wiper motor runs, but not the fuel pump. Fuel smells like varnish.

    Re: 1990 Consulier GTP Targa

    Just awesome! I am SOOO jealous! I have been wanting to build a light mid/rear engine car for years. These have all the hard work done AND use our motors. As much as I love my 8Vs if I could have bought one I would be doing a srt motor swap. You also could swap in that nice raffle motor you have ! Could you take some pics of the shift linkage? I am curious how they did it.

    REPORT: (Filters and fuel pump installed)
    Yes. Got it running. Still need to flush more fluids, etc.. waiting for green light from the salvage yard for me to bring them all of your old fuel (which is now not fuel...it's varnish)
    Can't drain any more fluids until I can get rid of that old gas.
