FOR SALE MY GLORIOUS TR7 / 8 CONVERSION

 

FROM THE MOMENT YOU TURN THE KEY & THE SOUND SHE MAKES YOU JUST KNOW THIS IS SOMETHING SPECIAL

HOPEFULLY YOU WILL START TO UNDERSTAND WHY THIS CAR IS NOT IN THE NORMAL TR7 /8 CONVERSION PRICE RANGE

 

THE CAR SOUNDS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING THE V8 BURBLES AWAY AND WHEN THE PEDAL IS PRESSED SHE ROARS LIKE THE GATES OF HELL HAVE JUST BEEN OPENED AND THE ONLY WAY SHE WANT'S TO GO IS FORWARD AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE NOTHING BUT SMILES PER GALLON

 

IN THE LAST 4 - 5 YEARS OF MY OWNERSHIP SHE HAS BEEN GARAGED KEPT (AND WAS BY PREVIOUS TWO OWNERS)

 

PLEASE READ AND FULLY UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING TWO ISSUES

 

BODYWORK AND THE WHOLE CAR IS IN EXCEPTIONAL CONDITION APART FROM THE ROOF. nbsp;WHICH I STARTED FITTING A GENUINE WEBASTO SUNROOF TO IN THE WINTER BUT WITH DOING UP MY HOUSE HAVE NOT GOT AROUND TO FINISHING SO CURRENTLY SAT IN POSITION AND HAS VINYL TAPED OVER SO THE CAR WOULD BE TESTED & USED THIS SUMMER AND I WAS GOING TO COMPLETE THIS COMING WINTER.

 

OTHER ONLY ISSUE AND I AM BEING TOTALLY HONEST HERE STARTER MOTOR IS TEMPRIMENTAL AS IN YOU HAVE TO FLICK THE KEY SEVERAL TIMES TO START. NOT ALWAYS ONLY HAVING BEEN LEFT FOR A FEW DAYS. IF USED FINE

 

NOW I WOULD THINK BASED ON THE VEHICLE CONDITION & SPECIFICATION AS I HAVE DESCRIBED AND THE FACT SHE IS 35 YEARS OLD THESE TWO ITEMS ARE OF MINOR

 

IN SUMMARY
