I’m not in the market for a Wedge but on auto Trader there is a really good looking FHC Wedge which is meant to be an original press car.
Beautiful looking car, if only I had more space.......................

viewing the interior and its colour this car was most likely light-green metallic in its earlier life.

here the car in its original colour...the web doesnt forget anything:

the actual paintwork does not match at all with the interior. wheels are not original and far too modern but seem to be changed already 1985. modern steering wheel. floor mats something cheapish aftermarket, even not matching somehow with any other color.

at least it looks like the car has not suffered from "lets fit an ugly aftermakret sunroof" issue

and if this car is so good, why no chassis nor enginebay pics? i can imagine why.

Thorough MOT history on line. Had a few issues in the past with suspension component corrosion but no advisories now so appears to be sorted. Never any mention of chassis corrosion. Not sure how AutoTrader works but do they charge for each photo?

That driver's seat has never done 140000 miles unless it's been reupholstered!

I expect the dealer will have to accept a lower offer at the end of the day.

Personally, I like that colour. I've had turquoise cars in the past but they've been a Fiat and a Vauxhall, not sure about it on a TVR!

Wheels are easily changed. 3k miles in 13 years??

I didn't say original. Loads of TVRs (especially other models with comedy 15" front wheels) have aftermarket wheels fitted to get a better range of possible tyres.
