On the Surface: The 1972 Hillman Avenger GT is an extremely rare example being ONE of just SIX left registered on the road in the UK. The car is finished in the attention-grabbing ‘Sundance’ Yellow, with a sleek black vinyl roof over a black interior.

Maintenance: Under the care of the current owner since October 2021, this Avenger GT has undergone extensive restoration work, evident in its impeccable condition. Recently passing its MOT test with flying colours, it boasts a valid MOT until 18/03/2025.

History: Accompanying this rare gem is a comprehensive history file, chronicling its journey through time. From MOT certificates dating back to 2006 to a standalone certificate from 1990, every milestone is documented. Noteworthy invoices reveal investments totalling £3,000, including recent purchases like a brand new rev counter and other components. Notably a letter from Classic Car Weekly to the former owner values the car at £4,250 – this was when the car was a rolling restoration.

The Model: Introduced in October 1970, the Avenger GT made its mark with a twin-carburettor 1500 cc engine and a four-speed manual gearbox, offering spirited performance on the road. The GT  is recognisable by its twin round headlights and iconic ‘go-faster stripes,’. The Avenger GT was eventually replace by the Avenger GLS in October 1972 marking the end of a 2 year run for the GT.

Sale Insight: This Avenger GT stands as an exceptionally rare find, with only 14 known to DVLA and a mere 6 still gracing UK roads today. Its restoration work, coupled with its scarcity, makes it an irresistible choice for any enthusiast seeking an investment that they can enjoy. Where else could one find an Avenger GT?
