Current customer rating: current rating for this car(2.1) based on 626 votes
 For sale is a 1985 TVR Tasmin 280i roadster.   This car is factory hand made by the skilled automotive craftsmen at the TVR factory in Blackpool. England.   Of the approximately 1100 280l's manufactured between 1980 and 1987. about 500 were sent to the U. S.   This may be the rarest. Hand Built. Factory Production. car on Ebay.   TVR was an independent British manufacturer of sports cars. The company manufactured lightweight sports cars with powerful engines and was. at one time. the third-largest specialised sports car manufacture.
The car was also referred to by the term. "wedge" to describe it's unique shape.   Currently. 280i's in good original condition are bringing up to $10. 00 and those with a higher level of restoration can exceed that amount. significantly.   This car could give you. if you can do most of the work yourself. a high return in either money or pleasure.
The cars were hand crafted with a hand laid fiberglass body on a tubular. space frame chassis. with mechanical and electrical components from other sources.   Engine. transmission and front brakes. from Ford. rear differential and brakes from Jaguar XJS.   Steering rack. front suspension. fuel injection. A/C and electrical. from companies like Bosch. Lucas. Triumph. MG. and Lotus.
This car appears to be original and unrestored. with a solid body and rust free chassis. and is being sold as a project.   It does start. run. drive and brake. but due to age. lack of maintenance and neglect. is not street-able in it's present condition.   It could be made acceptable with fairly minimum effort. primarily the steering and brakes.   The car is rather cold blooded on startup. but as it warms up. it does not exhibit any leaks and the temp gauge goes to 180 and stays there.   The typical TVR aggressive exhaust note is still there.   The engine should be tuned up. including adjusting the solid lifters and the Bosch fuel injection.   It needs to have the brakes rebuilt/replaced and steering rack rebuilt and it will be minimally capable of being driven on the street. mechanically. the headlights work. both upper and lower beams. but the the left side headlight will not come up under power. only by hand.   Horn. wipers and AC do not work.   The AC is actually there. but disconnected.   As far as instruments. they all work except. the oil pressure and odometer (I think).   The windows all are in perfect condition and power windows work. as well as all the lights. except interior and glove box.   door latches and locks work as well as. believe it or not. the clock!  A first for the British cars I have owned.   Clutch is fine. but the shifter needs to be rebuilt and the steering wheel replaced.   Interior needs to be redone. it's been left exposed too long. the vinyl. wood and carpet are all rough.   The top is functional. but needs the rear glass replaced and has a 2" repair in the fabric rear portion.   The Targa fiberglass center section of the top is excellent and even has the vinyl case for the top.   The car has 4 perfect wheels and new tires all around.  
Please ask any questions you may have.   I did not when I bought the car and it was not what I thought it was. so I encourage questions.   It is an honest car. needing restoration. but restoration of the sort that anyone with a reasonable level of automotive competence can do.   I realized that. at 67. I have passed that level and need to pass it on to someone else now.
