Looks like a nice project. You don't see too many silver ones about ;)
Is it a phase 1.5?

I've never heard of a 1.5. That's not to say there isn't one? I thought there were only phase 1's and 2's, the difference being an extra 5bhp on the PH2's, the kit painted on the PH2's and bare body colour fibreglass in the PH1's with slats in the rear arches, different wheels and interiors and no lip on the front bumper or top boot spoiler on the PH1's... blah blah blah... :roll:

Anyway, what's all this about a 1.5???? Can anyone shed any light in it??! :?:  :?

aint gotta clue maybe they  fitted some bits which was to become the ph 2, maybe they had the centre consol fitted or had the painted kit and bumper and spoiler. but didnt have the console or the w/c turbo? like making good of what was left from the ph1? so it was half ph1 and half ph2????

maybe were they had other models along side the ph1 and ph2 gtt, it could be possible its not infact a ph 1.5 but were it was in the cros over year were ph1 and 2 were beeing made as im sure ph1 didnt just stop in a instant but then maybe wrong?
