This TR7 had a standard V8  fitted when bought then after little use the wiring loom melted and circumstances meant it wasn't used again.
My sons car which we are now selling as just are not getting round to fixing it. it has no mot or tax as has been off the road for 5 years. Being sold as a non runner.
BodyThis was the most solid car i could find when it was bought. It was MSA logbooked with homologation papers and had just been finished after its conversion from a tr7 road car to tr8 rally car. It has a roll cage fitted. The 7th picture shows a small hole in the floor pan about 6 inches long. Plus the panhard rod has pulled off the chassis. The car is basically still solid but needs a little welding as described plus a repaint. I have rubbed both floor pans down underneath and applied 2 coats of hammerite over the last 2 winters. As you can see i have a new front spoiler included.
Power TrainThe engine is a standard v8 on SU carbs. I have a weber set up with 4x40 webers on a mangoletsi manifold which have never been fitted. It has a SD1 5 speed gearboxThe rear axle is the later heavy duty version with an LSD which worked very well. I don't know the ratio but i believe the LSD was new.
SuspensionThe suspension is running escort front 2 and a quarter inch Bilstein roller top mount struts with bilstein rear shocks. The car has been polybushed.
BrakesIt has princess 4 pots on the front with vented discs plus a caliper conversion on the rear with solid discs. It also has a hydraulic handbrake.
This is not an ex works car but had been built by a gentleman who prepared vehicles from his home. It worked well but i had plans to build a mega engine hence i bought the weber carb conversion for it but the wiring issue happened and i never got round to it.
We are selling now while the car is still good enough for someone to put it back to its former glory or even better.
£5995 ono - including carbs
