New MOT passed with not a single advisory. The condition of this TVR is one of the best in the UK. Very rare indeed now especially in this condition .
Last owner who was a true TVR man has a claim to fame as was responsible for this colour of Chrystal Green being part of the TVR palette.
The standard Ford 2.8 injected v6 pulls like a train and sits in an immaculate show standard engine bay. The 5 speed T9 gearbox is precise. For a true rare classic that is in immaculate condition with no TVR gremlins. That has excellent and interesting history for the price of a clapped out Capri its price can only go skyward if that’s your thing. If you want a convertible that is different and immaculate then this could be up your street !
Serious enquiries only please we anticipate this won’t last long .
Trailered transport open or enclosed offered at cost if required.
The best TVR Tasmin 280i 2-seat I've seen in a VERY long time ! Very rare car, even in the UK, in the purest bodywork form, with the fuel injected 2.8 Ford V6 engine, automatic, a true GT ! Splendid.....
