They are great looking cars pity thet went bust. As a brand revival i would like to see.
Small packaged car with a revy v6, I think might do well. Or if you are with modern times a small turbo hybrid system.

I used to own a MK3 Gilbern Invader, 3ltr Ford V6 with a manual overdrive gearbox.

I will see if I can find a photo of it.

Southampton had its own small volume manufacturer Ian - Gordon Keeble.

Have only ever seen one on the road though, and that was years ago. Beautiful and fast cars.

The Essex V6, now if only the KV6 could deliver torque like that engine could.

Hi,had one in my 1600e V6 Savage lookalike,fitted a four barrel Holley carburettor/manifold set up on it,great days the 70s.Complimented the fabricated headers,adjustable shocks,discs brakes with two servos!Lowered suspension,twin exhaust pipes,overdrive,lsd,repositioned battery and fuel tank for better weight distribution.In those days it was classed as a street sleeper.Only downside it must have had a racing cam,tickover had to be 2000 revs otherwise it stalled!I miss the customising era.Then I discovered American V8s.Dream car would be a MK111 Zodiac sleeper with a V8.Sorry slightly off topic.Regards Ry.....
