Always liked the look of the Gilbern but never owned one. Now able to begin to look for a mid priced car. Plenty of expensive coupes out there but I would really like a Genie for preference. Any one know of one for sale? Many thanks, Will

Admin reply: Hi Will, finding a Gilbern for sale is not an easy task, why don't you email me on briangent57@gmail.com so that we can discuss your exact requirements.

Any car with a rusty chassis, is going to cost bucket loads to restore.

Regards

Brian

For a car that I had never heard of your site is an interesting read. You were mentioned on the Classic Brittish Cars in Australia Facebook page that I joined. I will look in again, thank you.

Admin reply: Hi Phil, Always good to hear from folk down under. have you had a look at our own facebook site Gilbernworld? Always lots going on, and plenty of mentions of Gilberns outside the UK.

I used to own a green Gilbern GT reg KTD 32C.

Can you tell me if you know anything about this car.I owned it in 1988 my Gilbern Owners club number was 1483.

Thanks

Phil

Admin reply: Yes the car is known to the club, and your ownership is recorded, although your ownership dates are rather patchy, could you advise on this please. It has been with a club member in South Wales since 1991, and I understand is currently awaiting a respray.

If you would like to talk about the car, do feel free to call me on 07850-001186.

Just wondering if my late Dad's Gilbern Genie still exists ... I was only 7 yrs old at the time but recall the reg: as LWN 600F. We lived in Swansea. It was silver with black interior and had a manual gearbox with overdrive. He always tricked me when he flicked the overdrive (without moving the gearstick :) The next car I recall was K reg so maybe he kept it 3 or 4 years ?? Have had a rummage thru his photo albums but sadly not found any photos of the Gilbern yet. Fond memories.

Had an estate back in the early to mid 70's, GLG200K. The car was originally owned by my fathers employer who unfortunately ran off the road and damaged the rear qtr and part roof. The car was in Gilbern at the time of going into administration after which it to 6 to 9 months for him to retrieve the car. The car had been part repaired so I purchased it finished the work and ran it for two years. The colour at that time was aubergine metallic which may have been a Ford colour along with a dark magnolia leatherette roof and wesbasto sunroof.
Great little car, the gear lever and dash always fascinated my friends.

I've checked with the estate historian regarding your car reg GLG200K, and he last heard of it, when it was for sale on eBay in 2009, it was dark green at the time.

If you want any further info on it please contact the estate historian Grahame Slope direct at : g.j.slope@btinternet.com, he has a couple of photos of it taken in 2007.

My uncle has a Gilbern, his son and i have been after for 15 years.
Chassis number B01023. Its taken this long for him to even let us take the tarp off it.
I want too know if its worth restoring. The rear plastic screen is in a rubble bag on the back seat. It looks like a really hard thing to find or get made.
The mg engine is seized solid not a big issue but there is a lot of rot on the chassis behind the engine.

Admin reply: Stan,
Our GT historian believe this may be a previously unkown car and would like any more detail,you did not leave address. He has tried to reply is not sure that worked. Please could you contact him directly at : briangent57@gmail.com
