Autotune Gemini

Hi

Any Autotune Geminis out there for sale please? Complete cars/project vehicles. Would prefer an old Q plate car in need of a rebuild but still complete.

Cheers
Mike

Hi Tim

Many thanks

Something like:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Autotune-Gemini-1600cc-SVA-and-correctly-registered-No-Reserve/132069949236?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3 D1%26asc%3D50545%26meid%3D987728e01373439cad0474086d3095ae%26pid%3D100013%26rk%3D8%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D371694179399%26itm%3D132069949236&_trksid=p20 47675.c100013.m1986

would be good.

There was a Rover V8 powered one for sale a while back that looked tempting.

How is your build going?

Cheers
Mike

Good luck! It took me a while to track down my Gemini. Since I bought it a couple of years ago I've kept an eye on the market but very rarely see them come up.

As one project finished on eBay another was listed - couple of days to go.

Gemini

I should have bought the Alfa engined project that came up moons ago - did that ever get finished?

And after that another appeared

Gemi ni


No idea if it sold but it needed a lot of work for that money.

Autotune Gemini Possibly for sale soon

I have been storing an Autotune Gemini for nearly 20 years in my workshop. Dry stored on stands after complete respray. This winter once I have contacted the owner (Abroad) I will be taking the body off, and checking all mechanicals, and getting an MOT on it. The current car has a mark 2 escort dash fitted but I have a complete set of smiths gauges/instruments and warning lights from a vintage triumph to fit.

Depending on what the owner wants the car may be sold prior to the work.

Please let me know if anyone would be interested in the car before or after the work.

The car is on an R plate and not a Q plate.

I have to make way for a TR7 V8 restoration in the new year.

Hi

This sounds interesting. What engine and gearbox does it have in it please? What is it registered on the V5 as? Where is the car located?

Any pictures?

Thanks

HI,

It's a 1.6 escort engine with a 4 speed gearbox, I am waiting for the owner to get in touch, but I think it was correctly registered as a gemini.

A bare Gemini chassis has popped up: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Autotune-Gemini-Kit-Car-Chassis-new-unused-c-w-wishbones-and-5-link-rear/173597311493?hash=item286b34c205:g:d2IAAOSwMsJbn9c 8

Pity I did not buy the cheap secondhand body that was for sale in the West Mids a few years ago!

Checked with Autotune and they still sell the kit and in modular form, so a new body can be bought (approx £2k, extra for flip front option).

Cheers
Mike

The adís a bit misleading as the engine is being offered for sale elsewhere separately?
