1976 Triumph TR7 with the Dolomite Sprint engine. SU Carburetors. K & N air filters. competition suspension. Panasport Wheels. 5-speed transmission. span >  later 5 speed style differential. new Roadster Factory carpet set. spare set of stock wheels with some old Toyo tires. lightweight fiberglass front bumper. spare close ratio gearbox (not in car) Crane ignition.

This car was owned by Lee Bryan of Albuquerque. NM and he built the car for autocrossing.   He purchased the Dolomite Sprint engine from Huffaker Engineering with the carburetors and the close ratio gearbox for $3200. 00.   The Dolomite Sprint engine has a four valve head and produces 127 HP vs  the 80 to 100 HP produced by the standard unit.   It also features a stronger timing chain and SU Carburetors that were infinitely easier to maintain than the standard Stromberg units.  

We have driven the car from Albuquerque to Colorado with no problems and it gets great mileage.   It is a fun car to drive with a stiff suspension and does well at track days especially against other British Cars.   This is the car British Leyland should have made and did make about 60 of these cars for the home market.   The car is painted in our take of the rally livery.   We have owned the car since the fall of '08.  

The car has no rust having been in New Mexico for a long time.   We painted the car ourselves and that puts it solidly in “condition 4” with a few spots we would like to re-do.   The alternator threw a vane and put a dent in the bonnet and it has a small dent in the rear.   The car has a race camshaft in it that should be replaced with the stock unit (included) for around town driving.   The electrical system works well.   I have lots of spares including a spare car that can be hauled away if the new owner wants.  

I will help in any way possible with the shipping of this car.    $500. 00 deposit required. I want you to be happy with your purchase subject to your approval of the vehicle in Albuquerque. NM.   Please take delivery of the vehicle within 30 days of purchase.
