I have now been approached by a couple of GOC members, for the alloy rocker covers that I produced when I was a member of the club.

My email address changed when I retired from working, and the web page for the covers closed down as a consequence, but it is still possible to have the covers cast, and a new pair is now ready for collection.

The problem has always been the machining, I have now found another machine shop who are prepared to do the work, but inevitably costs have risen and they are only interested in doing them in batches.

Perhaps if anyone else is interested in a set they would get in touch via the email address given.

Regards to all former friends and Gilbern owners,

Paul

Hi everyone.

I am very seriously considering investing in an Invader.

Any advice or potential vehicles for sale would be extremely welcome.

Thanks

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.

Admin reply: Hi Dave, I have just been doing our annual check with DVLA to see how many Gilberns are taxed or on Sorn (MK1 21 taxed, 11 on Sorn & MK2, 36 taxed, 36 on Sorn) and came across the fact that the reg number OO1048 is now on a Jag. So there is a chance that your dads car is still about but with a different reg number. I shall have to keep an eye out for the chassis number to appear.
There are a considerable number of cars that were taken off the road pre-sorn so they are not in the new DVLA system

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.
Regards Gavin
