IN­TE­RIOR & ELECTRICS

Unique Cars - - XT BUYERS GUIDE -

Com­po­nents in­clud­ing car­pets, door trims and seat vinyl needed to ren­o­vate a worn XT are al­most im­pos­si­ble to source as orig­i­nal but are avail­able from sup­pli­ers of re­pro­duc­tion parts. Larger items such as new cen­tre con­soles are avail­able from un­der $500, with door­trims and arm­rests (sold sep­a­rately) at around $100 each. Cor­rect knobs and gauges can be tricky to find and a re­place­ment GT steer­ing wheel will be costly. Noisy starter mo­tors, failed heater fans and in­di­ca­tors that won’t can­cel are com­mon elec­tri­cal faults but easy to rec­tify. New six-cylinder starters cost less than $150, new al­ter­na­tors around $200.
