    Default 87 GTi convert to Auto trans, possible ?

    Hello all
    just bought an 87 205 GTi, and due to an old hip injury I would like to convert it to an auto trans. If this is reasonably possible, would the trans from a 205 Si do the trick.
    Also the car has a blown head gasket and I was thinking of upgrading to a later model head, if there is any advantage in that.
    Any info or pointing in the right direction would be much appreciated.
    Thanks Doug

    I asume you mean a 205.

    Yes it can be done, i have converted a gti for my sister.

    All the 205 si gearbox bits will work.

    405 gearboxes also work.

    Don't do it... Buy a falcon if you must

    Save the 205 for weekends for when you're feeling 100%!

    Possible: yes, i suppose so without being an expert....

    Well I will start hunting down the parts.
    thanks Doug
    Not sure about the falcon though, I have a 91 205 si to keep me happy for now.
    But I do appreciate your horror.

    All in good humor. Hope it works out. Start a build thread if you do go ahead!

    there is the 205 gentry:



    that came with the possibility to choose an auto gearbox:



    the engine is also the 1.9 but with 105 bhp.
