I bought this car in October 2008 from a trader in Tewkesbury. The car was a little tired and although fully roadworthy needed a little TLC.
The first thing i did was get it resprayed as the original lacquer was lifting in a few places, mainly the boot lid.
I did a lot of tidy ups and i have the before and after pictures.
Here's a list of the relevant info;
92 pre cat.
Private plate included K40 TVR.
Alarm and immobiliser.
4.0L V8. Rare 250bhp option.
500 'shark' nose.
Mille Miglia alloys.
H1 converted to H4 headlights.
Renewed headlight covers.
Clear front indicator units.
Clear side repeaters.
Rear numberplate LED backlit.
Gaz Nickel suspension 2016.
Powerflex bushes fitted 2016.

I've probably missed some stuff.

Needs new carpet.
Leather seats worn.
Few some chips on front end.

It is over 20 years old after all.
Please come and have a look, see what you think. It's a lovely car, sounds great as it doesn't have cats like the latter cars. It's got to be the cheapest honest Griffith on the market at the moment.
I'll be sorry to see it go. Planning to move house soon, need to cut down on toys. (Got two motorbikes to sell also).
It's served me very well and had not left me out in the cold. Been all around the UK, to Le Mans many times, Monaco, Nice, Lake Garda turns heads everywhere! Easy to work on, parts are cheap!
Bag yourself a bargain ready for summer!
No PX. No canvassers please.
Very near offers welcome.
Test drives must have own insurance and full asking price cash in my hand, sorry but it's a lively car and i don't want to chance anything. I'll happily take you out in it.
Call anytime but please bear in mind i might not be able to answer during working hours.
Thanks for viewing my ad. Now grab your wallet and come see the car!
