Yet another high-performance car to utilise the three-litre Ford V6 engine and gearbox, the Welsh -built Gilbern is a neat 2+2 which can be purchased outright, or as a constructional kit for assembly. The Gilbern has a massive separate chassis frame and a glass-fibre body, and for the Motor Show there is a new fast and useful estate version. The Gilbern is well equipped with light-alloy (wide) wheels, electric windows, quartz-iodine headlights, and the live rear axle is positively located by a Panhard rod and radius arms to maintain geometry during fast cornering, and on rough surfaces.
