TVR Griffith 500
Just taken in P/X on my personal car and selling as a private sale.
Finished in Midnight Blue with Red / Blue full hide. 3 owners from new. First owner Feb '96 to Nov '96, 2nd owner Nov '96 to 2017 who garaged the car and avoided wet / winter use. He moved house and managed to get himself as the owner and previous owner on the V5 but we have a copy so you can see it was a genuine mistake. A lovely history which includes loads of invoices, the handbook wallet, old Mots and a stamped up service book wallet (21 stamps) mostly from Fernhurst TVR. It has been maintained based on time regardless of the fact it covered only a handful of miles in between services.
GAZ gold Pro GP101 adjustable dampers, stainless steel Y piece & cat, original is supplied with the car. ACT induction kit, again the original parts are supplied with the car as is an indoor car cover and a kit bag with trickle charger, spare serpentine belt etc.
I popped it up on the ramp and had a good look round. Looked OK underneath but I'm not a marque specialist. Took a load of photos which I'm happy to show when you come to see the car. The o/s outrigger was replaced through Fernhurst in 2008. I've just had it MOT'd as the old one was due to run out in July.
As a non TVR owner I was pleasantly surprised by the drive. Smooth power delivery and a well sorted ride not as harsh and crashy as I was expecting. Supplied with 2 keys that include a remote boot release button.
A few bits and pieces to do, oil leak from o/s rocker cover gasket (I think), needs rubber trim where window meets targa roof (about £3.50 per side), I suspect the paint is largely original so there are some stone chips here and there and it's a TVR so there will always be a bit of tinkering to do. I hope I've priced it to be good value as an honest Griff 500 with no nasty stories.
Mot until July 2021, Fully HPI checked and all clear. Thatcham CAT1 alarm / immobiliser with boot release from key conversion, 2 keys supplied - over £600 fitted.
Car is located M25 junction 16 / M40 junction 1 near Uxbridge.
