Sadly the time has come for me to sell my project to restore TVR Grantura MK1 1961 but it is your opportunity to restore one of the iconic British cars that were built in the 60’s.
The Car’s registration number is 90RTU and the Chassis number is 7C193.
The car comes with extensive paper work tracing its history back to its first registration in 19th of May 1961.
One of the previous owners who owned it in 1991, attempted to restore the car then and has written to the previous owners asking for the previous ownership booklets. He received a response from Mr. Roy Johnson who owned the car in the early 60’s and kept it till 1966. The car was originally white in colour and fitted with Bristol 2Ltr racing engine BSI MK3 and gearbox which used to be fitted to Grand Prix cars in 50’s. Mr. Johnson has also competed in the car in 60’s as you can see in the pictures attached.
At some stage in the 70’s, the Bristol racing engine and gearbox were replaced with Mexico Ford Engine which is on the car now.
The car has the Alfin race brake drums with cooling fins (the turbo fins which allow for greater air circulation and was usually used for racing back then) .
The car’s chassis number is 7C193 and the TVR Car Club has issued a Date of Build Certificate certifying the originally registered date of the vehicle as 19th of May 1961 with Registration mark 90RTU and Chassis number 7C193.
I bought the car on 19th of May 2014 and stored it in a dry place. The plan was to restore it to its original status. I have done few hours on it, stripping the interior entirely and removing the engine and the gearbox to make it easier to restore the Chassis. Change in circumstances means I can no longer be able to get it to the finishing standard that it deserves. Hence the sale.
I have bought many other parts for it for the restoration. They are listed below and included with the sale.
New Parts included
Brake flexible hoses (front and rear)
Brake master cylinder
Polyurthrane suspension bushes
Track rods right & left side
Number plate Rear Light (chrome)
Any questions, please ask.
Genuine buyers only please. No time wasters.
