Sold

This 275GTB has been sold to a man in Glasgow.

Next project is a Tribute GT on another 3.0L auto.

Anyone want some very good condition black panels ? Would prefer some good silver doors.

Tribute Owners Lunch / Tea meet.

Sorry to hear that is grim 'up north' but thought there is just a chance you could be in the locality / visiting Tribute at Hurst Moreton and it might like to hear about a social lunch.
