Currently on Ebay (item 253471324471), perhaps a tad optimistic on price; and note the novel way of dealing with those really annoying warning lights on the dash, just blank 'em off.....

...and they got it up to 50mph without the engine running. How did that make it through the MoT ?

Eventually someone will go in there and let their heart rule their head, fall for a bit of sales patter and a set of shiny wheels and hand over a ridiculous amount of hard earnt cash, what could be wrong..... it's got 12 months MOT wink

I wonder if you can see them through the mesh? Hopefully they have been upgraded..

Not seen that before smile

They do look well in white..

Interesting - my old white S2 was g636UKR - the one that now keeps going on ebay and not getting the reserve (modifications not my style TBH) - i'd never seen another UKR until this one g639UKR!!

And i'd be bothered by no seeing any engine bay shots. This one was originally advertised as a 2.8 - but surely its a 2.9 at that age and S2?

Blimey, it does look a bit ropey in places, although I do like it in white.

Just watched the video on the dealers website and the rear window isn’t great and when they start it up the fan belt screeches (you would have thought that was a very easy fix to save the embarrassment) and I’m sure I can see the odd puff of blue smoke!

Based on what I’ve seen of this car, mine is up for sale and cheaper at £9,990!

Urrghh...Shiny white bodywork wont sell for that much alone,, it wont sell above 6k if thats what its like underneath, probably not 5k

Plus the silly fan belt (?) noise on startup....

Mind you, the salesman in the video like s it...does his voice remind you of anyone...."...now then Gav, that TVR is as nice as my Picasso"

If it's from South Wales there's a good chance it's lived near the coast and had a good dose of fresh sea air. Anyway, I thought the standard colour for Wales was grey? laugh

Those front springs worry me, they look to be permanently compressed ?

They might be, but the standard progressive springs are very closely wound at the top.

Looks like this is still for sale (unsurprisingly at that price and in that condition)!!

My car’s original registration was G637 UKR - I think I remember seeing your car at a TVR meet a number of years ago
