GTM Coupé Page

This page has been set up to document the rebuild and ongoing development of my 1987 GTM Coupé.

The GTM marque was launched in 1967 when Cheshire garage owner Bernard Cox and friend Jack Hosker created the Cox GTM (Grand Touring Mini).

Over the years the GTM name was passed from company to company, they still exist as GTM Cars producing the Libra and Spider.

The Coupé is a mid-engined 2-seater sports car designed to give outstanding performance, for it's time and impeccable handling. The design composed of two Mini front subframes, with traditional Mini rubber cone suspension, linked by a 18-20 swg sheet steel semi-monocoque chassis. The chassis' deep centre tunnel backbone is supplemented by two generous sills. The car is mid-engined: the rear subframe contained the engine as in a Mini with the steering arms locked in position with adjustable rods and ball joints. This is held in place by a 1" square tubular space frame, all the way from the rear bulkhead. The front subframe carried the steering rack, fuel tank and radiator. Brakes and wheels remained as per the options available to the Mini, post April 1982 GTM coupés being designed to allow fitment of 13" wheels.
