Up for sale is my TR7 V8 conversion. I used the Rimmer Bros conversion kit including genuine V8 K frame and engine mounts with the kit alone costing around $2500.  The 3. 9L Rover was rebuilt with linished crank. new big end and main bearing shells. new high compression 9. 5:1 pistons. new timing chain kit and topped off with brand new Webber 500 four barrel carb and Edlebrock manifold (carb and manifold were around $1500).  It has good second hand extractors and single outlet tail pipe.  The single silencer gives a great sound especially on the over run!
New rear Gaz adjustable rear shocks and extra heavy duty springs were also fitted at the same time infact all the work has been done within the last 12 months.  Overall the bodywork is fairly decent with no apparent rust. it is no show car but is perfectly useable. Just thinking it has also had a new 3 core alloy radiator. short nose water pump and brake master cylinder at Christmas.
I have now lost interest and the car is sat in the back of my shed. It is currently still registered by selling as is.  It will need a few small jobs doing including swapping or modifying the rev counter to work with the V8. A proper check over as it's been sitting.   It starts straight up and idles nicely (video to come as the sound alone makes the hair on your neck stand up!  As you probably already know the TR8's were a formidable rally/race car and still a lot of fun as either a road car or for track fun.
The nasty bit - don't waste my time with pathetic excuses if you win the bidding and decide you can't afford it. I have absolutely no interest when you tell me your granny needs a kidney transplant in Peru! You won the bidding - it's your car.  Do not bid if you have feedback less than 10 otherwise I will cancel your bid.  I do NOT want paying with Paypal. Roubles. broken lawnmowers or swap for a crap commodore.  Advertised elsewhere so could end at any time.
