    Hi Ash and Co

    There has been one for sale in Queanbeyan recently. My guess is that it is still there.

    I saw it last year when I went to the owner's house to check out a 10s he was selling and it has been advertised fairly regularly since then. Yellow with canvas sunroof. He wanted a lot of money for it then, but if my memory is up to scratch, the last time I saw it advertised it was under $3,000. Without having got underneath or having heard it run it looked pretty straight.

    Hi

    Iím in the Reno club of Queensland and at present there are 2 17s for sale in there, and a R15 which needs some work.
    With the 17s one is a TS for $1500 and ones a proper R17 Gordini which actually has a proper R17Gordini badge on it. I would have bought it but he wanted $4000 for it, and to be honest when it was parked next to mine at his place it looked pretty shabby and needed a fair bit of work.

    If one comes up at the wright price I could be interested.

    Don't ignore the TS just because it doesn't have a Gordini badge. If it is an R1317 oval plate designation, it is virtually the same as a 17G mechanically, also much rarer, with only the first 500 R1317's being TS's, the rest up to 1667 being Gordini's.

    Differences between AUS spec (version 761) 17TS and a 17G.

    TS non-tinted side glass, G (also later TL's)tinted side glass

    TS non retracting seat belts, G (also later TL's) inertia reel front belts.

    TS no evaporative emission control, G (also later TL's)have it with US spec tank under the boot floor and square fuel filler door. G (& later TL's)also have hazard flashers and tombstone seats.

    Another point in the TS's favour are that they seem less prone to rust (for 17's anyway!). Some G's (and the equivalent batch TL's) rust quite badly due to poor quality steel used during a strike in France at the time. Bad ones are obvious.

    The key to a good 17TS or G is the original 365 gearbox, a lovely close ratio box also fitted to the 12G. Unfortunately they are also fragile, usually replaced by a 17TL fourspeed or Fuego NG3 which are not as well suited to the peaky nature of the fuel injected motor.

    Am I being elistist to suggest that real Gordiniís are those with Gordini in upper case, as opposed to the lower case Gordini on the 17 Gordini badge?

    Simons basically right what he says, I don't know about the upper case lower case bit thow (luckly the 12G is upper case or I'd be pissed off), I drive the 17G every day and it usually parks next to a 17TS owned by our mechanic, Simon listed the differences and mechanically there aint none, both cars drive the same, I prefer the gordini only because of the high back seats and inertia seat belts and thats all (and a speedo in kph instead of mph helps), but don't dismiss a 17TS as not a true Gordini because its every bit as good (if not better).
    Remember, the most important part in buying one is the gearbox.
