1978 Triumph TR8 Prepoduction Coupe 5-speed non air for sale
Some info on my car:
-I have owned the car for about 17 years.
-Car was originally delivered to Huffaker Racing on the west coast but never was raced.
-Car still is fitted with Huffaker springs (stiff) and adjustable front struts ( for camber).
-Painted at least 15 years ago but is still presentable.
-The car has been modified by Woody Cooper at The Wedge Shop:
4. 6 engine
Jet coated headers
Holly 600cfm carb
Tr7 3. 45 rear end
Electric aux fan controlled by switch
-In the past couple years I have done the following:
New water pump
New brake and clutch masters
New clutch slave
Rebuilt front calipers
Blue leather seats
New blue door panels
New steering wheel
New steering column bushing
New shifter bushings
New trans mount14 inch wheels
The car isn't perfect. The major defects:
Tires have good tread but are old
Paint looks OK
Drivers window winder is weak but still works. I have a new winder that comes with the car
Heater core is blocked (currently is bypassed ). I do have another complete non-air heater assembly/core just never got around to installing the core
Sliding sun roof is worn but works.
The car runs well and is a bit of a beast with the 4. 6 and 3. 45 gears. With this rear end 5th gear is good for about 22. 5 mph per 1000 rpm. The car is very dependable. I have driven it several time to PA for the Roadster Factory Party and numerous other 300-500 mile weekend trips.
Please let me know if you want to know any other info about the car or see a picture of any part of the car.
