This Griffith is finished in Imperial Blue with a magnolia full hide interior! The roof is trimmed in black Mohair. The interior is enhanced by the full range of Leven aluminium technology.
It has the “optional” power assisted steering and the optional full leather seats and headrests.
The car had a full body off restoration over the winter of 2012/13. This process included new outriggers, which were properly engineered into position, rather than just “cut and sleeved” into place. The chassis, outriggers and wishbones were all shot blasted, then zinc primed, then finished in 2 coats of 2 pack paint. The underside of the chassis was then protected with clear under seal.
A “Full nut and bolt restoration” continued on into 2013. It included removal of the PreCats and ceramic chrome refinishing of the exhausts - inside and out. The engine bay was fully worked through (see the photo!). The engine was equipped with smooth bore hoses and stainless water pipes and the rocker covers and plenum were ceramic painted. The car was treated to a 7” headlamp upgrade with new Perspex covers. And an HID conversion to the main and dipped headlamps was carried out. Protective Perspex covers were fitted to the intake - mounted driving lamps. It also had a new AP clutch, cover and thrust bearing fitted.In October 2016 the car had a full respray to a very high standard and the paintwork remains immaculate.
The car has also recently benefited from new discs and pads all around, and new original specification rear light clusters.
It has been serviced conscientiously (see records below). And it is fitted with an aluminium radiator, it has an ACT induction hose kit and the immaculate recently refinished alloys are fitted with new Toyo Proxes T1R fitted 600 miles ago. At the same time new Nitron suspension was fitted.
This TVR has a fully stamped service record and all paperwork and service invoices are available for the last 13 years. It has been subjected to a “Hawk-Eyed” Str8six PDI. And, and a full Geo set up carried out in 2016
