The GT6 was another underrated car in my opinion. Did a few miles in a friends many years ago. Supremely smooth long legged motoring. Loved the gearknob mounted switch to flip in and out of standard fit overdrive in third or fourth.
Got one new for my 21st. Says a lot about my taste in cars because the alternative was either a TR or a big healey. The latter was dismissed as being obsolete by then (1966) and I fancied the mini E type style of the GT6.
It wasnt a bad car but neither was it anything remarkable. But then very few cars are remarkable. It was slower than the TR. Reliable.
HKW1F - where are you now?
