Who cares? Well they are climbing in value over here, especially coz we got B23 with H cam and there are'nt many left. No other 242s ever made it here.

Anyway, thought this may be of interest to others with a GT. Post your chassis number, country and pics here and I will update the list.

I have a nice rust free 1978 242GT from California. I had it shipped up last year and I finally got it running today :-). It needs some TLC, but the body is solid. The VIN number is 133728.

Thanks for creating this registry. Sad to see how many have been crushed...

My uncle has a '79 or '80 GT shell out behind his house. I'll try and get better pictures next time I'm in Tennessee, but I sold the grille to Redwood Chair about five years ago. Was a 60k mile car when it was rolled, and he got it to use as a parts car.

Hey, I just realized that I belong in here now! I'm in Canada. I bought it and put it into storage on a farm just before the snow hit so I don't have a VIN to add. Bought it off the original owner who used it as his family car, while racing a heavily modded 142. Included were some cool old accessory manuals, and he even threw in his Volvo windbreaker/racing jacket. She's definitely in need of some love after being barely driven for the past 10+ years, but fully operational roadworthy. Just over 200k km, and the original wheels were included too. Anyone know anything about the aftermarket wheels? They were marked Great Britian.

Can anyone ID the wheels? Stamped "Great Britain" and I think they had a 3 letter brand. 14"x6".
