1000 TC @ Coys Autosport, ex-Gulf Team???
« on: January 04, 2008, 09:46:29 AM »
Morning Guys,

Some of you may have come across the 1000 TC that's up for auction at Coys Autosport sale in a few days time. Here's a link to the lot details: http://www.coys.co.uk/auctions/lot.php?auction=72&id=53617 [nofollow]

Can any of you experts enlighten me as to the provenance of this car? It claims to be an ex-Gulf team machine...

Here's the description:

"This 1968 model is very special indeed as it is one of only 10 such cars that were acquired from new by the Italian Gulf team which campaigned the car extensively at the beginning of the 1970s. Later on this charming and potent racer was prepared by well-known Abarth racing stable Garavello of Tuscany and it has since been used on many a European hillclimb. Finished in blue over red and yellow with a black interior, we are informed by the vendor that this Abarth is ready to race and in good condition throughout. Complete with the all important FIA papers, it just waits to be used on the multitude of competitions in Britain and Europe for which it is eligible."
