 1985 TVR Tasmin 280i in excellent condition. Engine number 1516: Body code 333H

Unmolested original condition. Everything works including the air conditioning.
This lovely TVR runs well and starts easily. Was somewhat dormant over the last 4 to 5 years having only covered around 500 miles during that time. Since I purchased it. I have driven it regularly whilst doing some of the work described below. The more I drive it. the better it gets!

It has the targa top configuration where the main rigid top can be removed and stowed in the trunk with the cover (in great shape) and either leave the rear section up to minimize wind or lay it down as a full convertible. The rear window in is excellent clear condition.

It is equipped with a/c and it works!

The stereo installed is a late 80's vintage top end stereo with serious speaker and a woofer (which I have not yet tackled diagnosing why it doesn't work). The stereo works anyway on the two rear mounted speakers.

The wood dash over the instruments and glove box is in very good condition with some minor surface cracks on the glove box door only.

Has electrical system cut off for use when car is not in use.

Recent work -replaced handbrake lever. now fully operational; replaced clutch slave cylinder; new fuel filter and fuel accumulator. new speedo cable. new light switch

Still to resolve - grounding for temperature gauge and dash board lights. the carpets need replacing and I am waiting delivery of the new carpet set that I will include with the car for the new buyer.

Paintwork is in excellent condition with few minor blemishes/nicks. The front spoiler on the passenger side will need some repair.

This TVR is comfortable and has been proved reliable since I have owned it.  Since I have been using it regularly. it drives better and better. Superb handling.

I am British and have always had passion for TVR's and this is my second one. The only reason for selling is that I have too many cars and need to focus on finishing the others that came before this car and the money from this will fund those other items.

Please be aware that this is a fully operating and running TVR but does need some minor work to finalize the items mentioned above.
