Also I remember seeing another Vixen convertible (German?) where the rear deck was modified with head fairings

ETA: Yes here it is

Sorry, no. Just an image I found whilst "Googling" for something else.

It was for sale a short while ago for 14.900,-euros I see in that map.
I owned and restored this car in the late 80's /early 90's and sold it in 1997. My Dad had bought it in 1975 and I took it over when I was 17. Car was originally lime green. Have lots of pics. History file went with the car.

I still have the JAP Magna wheels, they've been sitting in my garage for over 4 years.

Since i was old enough to know J.A Pearce wheels have been my favourites but those Revolution split rims look fabulous also..
As for the TVR swap the Zephyr side vents for S2 Vixen and it would be my 100% dream on racer..
Can you oblige as to it up to date status?

That is Tony Bancroft's SWB Tuscan which he hillclimbed and sprinted from 1968 to 1972. The next owner was Bill Marshall who I think drag raced the car in 1972. I don't think it has ever been supercharged.

Out of curiosity....what might the egg timer be for that is cut into the dash above the electrical master shut-off?

I'm at a loss to figure out how to use it.

lol, I saw it half, but did not think further about it.

when I opened it on a big screen it looks like a temp sensor for say the radiator, for by which temp the fan has to come in?
At least something like that, but well spotted.

edit for picture: something like this adjustable thermostat for in radiator combined with fan. but then old school in the Tuscan V8 racer.
