Manufactured in July 1979 as one of the last twenty five 3000S’s made, it remained unregistered when was purchased by HHC in 1984. They sold it later that year to its first registered owner. This is all documented by the TVRCC. It is eligible for “Historic” and MOT free status and an application has been made to the DVLA to change the Tax Class.
I am the fourth owner. It has a known history in long term family ownership that includes a very extensive body off rebuild in 2004 at 85k miles by Hexham Horseless Carriages with a receipt for £17,000. This included:-
• Chassis and suspension refurbished
• Rebuilt windscreen
• Rebuilt standard Ford V6 3000cc engine and unleaded heads
• New Mohair Hood
• Resprayed in original deep Blue
Since the rebuild it has covered only a further 10k miles and the following have been fitted:-
• Wolfrace wheels, as the factory option
• Spacesaver spare wheel
• Roll over cage
• Stainless exhaust silencers and tail pipes
• Inertia reel seat belts
• Electric fuel pump with inertia and isolator switches
• Fuel pressure regulator
• Electronic ignition
• Aluminium rocker covers with TVR logo
• Weber carb refurbished
• K&N intake filter
• Additional electric radiator fan, manually controlled.
• Rear fog light (MOT requirement).
It has been serviced regularly and is MOT’d until August 2020. Further photographs are available.
This is a good car which receives favourable comments. It was displayed on the TVRCC Burghley timeline in 2019 as well as appearing in national magazines. However, it is 40 years old and not perfect. It is only being sold to make garage room for a Turbo version. I am looking for sensible offers based on £17,750
