Founded in 1959 by a welsh butcher and a German fibreglass engineer Gilbern sports cars began making kit cars from the vale of Glamorgan making them one of the few Welsh car manufacturers. Progressing to factory produced cars with the GT and Genie and later launching the Invader in 1969.
The Mk3 Invader launched in 1972 was the last car produced by Gilbern and boasts Ford Cortina front suspension, the torquey 3 litre Ford Essex V6 in the higher tuned spec from the Capri 3000GT and a live rear axle.
Only 603 Invaders (M1,2 & 3) were produced with very few remaining today although popular for its handling and ease to maintain as most Ford parts are still available off the shelf.
This MK3 Invader is finished in bright red with contrasting grey interior (the original front seats are included in the sale) along with chrome alloy wheels. It was driven to our site and appears to run and drive well.
The bodywork would benefit from a polish and some touch-ups but we suggest viewing to make your own investigation.
