PRE PRODUCTION TR8. GENUINE FACTORY BUILT. NOT A CONVERTED TR7. A SMALL PIECE OF MOTORING HISTORY. THE CAR WAS BUILT IN JANUARY 1980. AND KEPT BY BL CARS FOR 18 MONTHS FOR DEVELOPMENT PURPOSES. IT WAS FIRST REGISTERED ON THE 24TH AUGUST 1981 TO BL CARS THEMSELVES. OBVIOUSLY AS A V8.
I HAVE COPIES OF THE ORIGINAL V5 AND ALL THE SUBSEQUENT V5's WITH DETAILS OF PREVIOUS OWNERS.
IT IS  CHASSIS NO. TPZDV8AT204xxx AND WAS ORIGINALLY DESTINED TO BE A  PLATINUM CALIFORNIAN SPEC. HOWEVER FROM DAY 1 IT WAS CONVERTED TO RHD. IT HAS NEVER BEEN EXPORTED AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN  A UK CAR FROM NEW.
THE MILAGE IS ONLY 36000 . AND THIS IS GENUINE. I HAVE ALL THE MOT'S INCLUDING THE VERY FIRST ONE.
HAS A HUGE FILE OF HISTORY AND BILLS. THIS IS A VERY SPECIAL CAR AND A SMALL PIECE OF MOTORING HISTORY.
A SUPERB CAR A 3. 9 LITRE ENGINE AND IS VERY QUICK INDEED. YOU NEED TO BE PAYING ATTENTION WHEN YOU GIVE HER A BOOTFULL. AND IF YOU DON'T HAVE A HUGE SMILE ON YOU FACE WHEN DRIVING HER YOU ARE PROBABLY SURGICALLY DEAD!
SHE HAS NEW EXHAUSTS. AND IS QUITE LOUD AND  VEY IMPRESSIVE. THE LOW BURBLE OF THE V8 CHANGES INSTANTLY WHEN YOUREV HER TO THAT OF A RACE CAR . AND THEN SETTLES DOWN TO THE LOVELY BURBLE AT TICK OVER. SHE REVS INSTANTLY AND VERY QUICKLY. A SUPERB ENGINE.
SHE DRIVES VERY WELL. THINK JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING IS WORKING. FUEL GUAGE STOPPED.
SHE IS IN TIDY CONDITION. HAVING A RECENT RESPRAY. SEAT ETC ARE FREE FROM ANY BURNS OR RIPS. AND ARE GOOD.
COMES WITH A NEW SOFT TOP READY TO FIT AND HAS A NICE HOOD COVER.
A LOVELY LOOKING AND DRIVING CAR. A LOT OF TIME AND MONEY HAS GONE INTO HER RECENTLY AND SHE IS GREAT. ALTHOUGH SHE HAS NOT BEEN THE SUBJECT OF A FULL RESTORATION AND IS NOT CONCOURSE. HAS NOT BEEN USED FOR A WHILE SO AS A CLASSIC MAY NEED THE ODD JOB TO DO HERE AND THERE AND A SERVICE. COMES WITH MOT.
UNIQUE AND LOW START PRICE
