Hello
I was having a chat with my Dad about 001048 the invader mk2 he said that the grill wasn't factory but was fitted quite early on in the cars life part of a repair as a result of accident damage the stag I remember. The crack in the grill (we were not able to find a replacement,,, was the result of an encounter with a sheep.

We did know the buyer from us and about the rear end shunt however I didn't know that she was a total loss.

Hi thanks for the reply. The grill was like that when we got the car. i believe that there may have been a run in with a stag (and not the triumph kind!!)
But I believe that it may have been like this when it was built.
I do remember going to some of the meetings with my dad in pub beer gardens.
I also remember that the bonnet vented when the engine got a little warm.

Hello some years ago (in the 1880s early 1990s) my Dad owned an invader 2 reg OO1048 I know the car was crashed a few years after we sold her and I think she was written off after a rear end shunt? He was an active member of the gilbern owners club and I think submitted to rarebit a few times? His name is Tony Green.
I wondered if anyone has any record or knows the where abouts of the car?
We are both now Scimitar owners so didn't street far from the grp fold.

Dave

Admin reply: Hi Dave.
This car disappeared from our records around 1995-96 when it was in the Manchester area, so your assumption that it had been written off may be correct.
I have one pic of it during your fathers ownership showing that it had a completely different front grill than normal.
It was mounted upside down and may have been a little wider than standard.
Do you know it this had been modified or was how it came from the factory?
I will try and sent Paul a pic so that he can post it.

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.

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.

Admin reply: Working with Paul on this. Genie Historian Julian
