Ocean Haze.
MOT until Oct 2021.
FULL TVR Service History – huge history file documenting ALL servicing and upgrades etc. Servicing carried out at HHC, Northumberland, whilst I have owned it.
Mileage is currently at 81,400. Please do not be put off by the mileage as this car has been maintained to ensure it has had the very best care, by the very best TVR mechanics in the business, and regardless of what it has cost. It’s been used for touring abroad, on a number of occasions.
Paint work is very good indeed, and has been well maintained, being regularly detailed and machine polished. There are a few minor stone chips and these have been touched up as required. To be expected when the car is used and 24 years old. It is as clean underneath as it is on top.
Having owned the car for 10 years now, I have upgraded it to become a very well sorted car, that’s absolutely ‘ready to go and enjoy’. The upgrades have been done to make the car more user friendly and easier to maintain, (such as the moving of the battery and fuse board).
Insurance valuation is £ 30,000. Long term TVR Club member. Probably one of the best Griffiths available.
