1980 Triumph TR7 V8 conversion

Full MOT

Thanks for looking at this classic Triumph TR7. It started life in 1980 as a standard 4 cylinder and was converted in 1996 using a S&S Preparation conversion kit. The engine I believe came from a SD1 Rover. It had previously been fitted with new panels. a new interior and hood.   I have receipts and old MOT's going back to the 1980's. It seems as though it has only done 4000 miles since the conversion.

Mechanically. the TR7 starts first time and sounds like only a V8 does and due to the fact that it has tubular manifolds and a full twin stainless exhaust system!

I have just driven 50 miles in it and it does drive very well. I would suggest that the carbs need setting up properly and a good service wouldn't go amiss. The gearbox and clutch are nice and I am told that it has had new brakes fitted recently. It also benefits from spax adjustable suspension and an anti-dive kit

It has nearly new tyres on 13" wolfrace alloys and handles well

The interior is in excellent condition. The seats have no signs of wear and are the original blue check design. The door panels. dashboard and carpets are excellent. The roof operates well and has no signs of wear. Benefits from a zip out rear window.

Bodily the car was fitted with new panels sometime ago and they are still very straight . The paintwork looks great from 10 feet away but up close you can seem that the paint has faded on the bonnet and boot. however the paint on the sides is good.

All in all this is a great example of a TR7 which are staring to climb in value especially the V8's

This example is nice as it retains all of its original features ( apart from the engine)

This is a trade sale. I buy and sell classic cars especially Triumphs.

I can arrange delivery at a great price
