Technical specifications, photos and description:
The TVR Vixen was built from 1967 until 1973. Ford-engine in
most of its configurations. it succeeded the MGB-engined TVR
Grantura 1800S. It is also the basis for the high-performance TVR
Tuscan which was available in both V6 and V8 engine configurations.
The Vixen Series I was introduced in 1967 as an evolution of the
discontinued 1800S. Although it used the same chassis as the
outgoing car. the significant change was the use of the 1599cc Ford
Kent engine. The 1968 S2 was built with the longer (90") wheelbase
chassis introduced on the Tuscan V8. The S3 continued to improve
the car with a number of detail changes. the heat extraction vents
on the bonnet were decorated with 'Aeroflow' grilles borrowed from
the Ford Zodiac Mk. IV and the Ford four-cylinder engine was now in
the same tune as in the Ford Capri. Finally. the S4 cars were an
interim model that used the TVR M Series chassis with the Vixen
body shell. The 2500. built between 1971 and 1972. was designed to
take advantage of the fact that the Triumph 2. 5 liter inline-six
engine had already been certified for US emissions standards.
This is a stunning TVR Vixen 2500 and has had full body-off. br/>photo documented. rebuild in the 1990s by TVR specialist. Jim

V5C registration document. an MoT test certificate which expires in
April 2016. spare key and a huge history file containing numerous
