1986 TVR 280i Convertible - Series 2.  US 'Federal Spec' 

Professional conversion to 5. 0 V8 and T5 transmission - runs/drives great. sounds great too (but never obnoxious). Lighter than the stock V6/4 speed. Rear suspension reinforced for V8 power. Restrained cosmetic mods

~31000 miles shown.  Auto Check flags an error that looks to be a typo or misread in 2003. So legally it might be 'true mileage unknown'.  Speedo and Odometer read somewhat fast/high due to T5 conversion.  

Good body. interior. glass and electrical

Alpine stereo with MP3/iPod/iPhone player

Won 2010 'Best Modified TVR' from TVR Car Club of N America.

Standard features: power windows and mirrors. 4 wheel disc brakes. tube chassis. independent rear suspension (Jaguar). fiberglass body. Leather Momo steering wheel. 3 position convertible top (up. down. targa). manual steering. pop-up headlights. mini spare. tool roll. targa panel storage cover. side impact beams in doors. adjustable seats. comfortable for 6'2" and plenty of leg room.

Non-standard: V8 (from 1988 Mustang GT). exhaust. 5 speed. K&N cold air intake. MP3 player. sill plates. air horns. suspension and chassis mods for V8. AC removed (compressor and brackets available). Wood Momo wheel. aftermarket shift knob

Not a trailer queen - it's driven regularly. although seldom far. and is over 31 years old. Therefor I must state that it is sold 'as-is'. Incidental scratches and blemishes remain but many common issues have been addressed.  Dash clock is correct twice a day. Chassis is in good condition. although powder coat has peeled and surface scale is present. Our close inspection for annual inspection in May this year found no areas of concern. The car has been garaged/stored winters by me and came from Florida before that. Wet 'only' when washed or traveling to/from Woodwork - the TVR Club's annual meet.

If you're from the US or Canada and not already a TVR Car Club North America member. I'll pay your dues for this year when you buy this little gem.  

A copy of 'The Wedge Bible' is included. as is a workshop manual for the 88 Mustang engine donor.  Some other spare parts will be provided at the full price sale.  

Plenty of info on TVR and the 'wedge' cars is available online. feel free to contact me with questions about this car.  These are simple cars to maintain and run - this one's even easier with the 5. 0. Selling only due to another TVR acquisition.

Buyer responsible for pickup from Amherst. NH or other arrangements. Seller can assist within reason and is happy to make the car available for local viewing/inspection.
