Highlights from when we prepped and sold the car previously:

A car we prepped and sold to the current owner back in the summer 2017.

In fact if you want to read the testimonial about the car and owner, click here -  - details above - Look for “A-Z TVR Prep…Done”

When we sold the car it had covered 50,000 miles, and it went through quite an extensive refurbishment, the main highlights of which are shown below:

We fabricated bespoke outriggers (We don’t do the off the shelf items).
New Camshaft kit from Powers Performance fitted.
New Seatbelts
New Hood – Very smart it is to.
Powder coated Rocker Covers
New fuel hoses
New upper and lower bushes – Front & Rear
New upper and lower wishbones – Front & Rear
4 x New Toyos
New Roof
Full 12k Service
New Battery

Since then the car has covered 7300 miles over just under 3yrs and has been looked after by Wilton Morgan, and latterly by Dan at Taylor TVR.

Maintenance highlights and spends since purchase:

21/09/17 – Wilton Morgan – Oil and Filter (1000 from new Camshaft) - £134 – 51, 223 miles.
10/03/18 – Wilton Morgan – 6000 Mile Service – 2 x Ball Joints - £854 – 52,672 miles.
02/05/19 – Wilton Morgan – 6000 Mile Service – Bleed Clutch - £785 – 54,660 miles.
16/12/19 – Taylor TVR – Oil & Filter – Sump Gasket and Clutch Slave - £516 – 56,310 miles.
24/02/20 – Taylor TVR – Refurbished Diff – New rear discs/pads – MOT - £1597 – 56,810 miles.

As you’ll see from the photos, the chassis still looks great, as does the hood.

Prep Under Way....The car is now in need of some cosmetic attention, mainly to the paintwork on the front N/S wing where the lacquer has peeled back. The carpets have also faded a little, and although still perfectly serviceable, we would think a new carpet set and some attention to a couple of areas on the body would be well worth doing, and this work is now underway.
