1996 TVR Griffith 500 For SaleMy Griffith 500 is for sale which I have owned for more than 2yrs and in-which I have covered apx 10k miles very happy miles (including a 3k mile trip across Europe this year!).
The car has covered 98.5k miles with a full and up-to-date service history. In fact, so obscene is the amount of history, that it is virtually impossible to provide an overview! It has been compiled and indexed in a lever arch folder from day one! The Griff also has its original leather TVR filofax with a fully stamped (27* stamps in total!!!!!) service history. All of its servicing and maintenance throughout it's life has been carried out by TVR main dealers, or marque specialists such as; Sportmotive, Kerridges, etc.
This HPI clear Griffith has had 5owners from new (including me) and is MOTd until the end of January and had advisories for worn tyres and an oil leak - both of which have been seen too this year.
This year alone, the Griffith has enjoyed a full top-end overhaul (new head gaskets, valley gaskets, sports high-lift cam, timing chain, sprocket, etc) at Sportmotive in Stoke. Other spends this year have included; brand-new Toyo tyres (all-round), new battery, exhaust manifold gaskets, idle stepper motor, etc.
The Griffith is finished in Rosso Pearl Red metallic complimented by a black leather interior and matching black hood (both of which are in very good condition).
Upgrade features include:
- Nitron adjustable dampers (supplied new & fitted apx 2yrs ago)
- Remote boot release (with fob)
- Leven gear lever surround
- Leven handbrake
- Leven fuel filler
- Leven oil cap
- Upgraded (and nearly new) sports camshaft
- Roof panel bag
This Griffith is a serpentine version with the Borg Warner T5 gearbox and has non-assisted steering. Having driven numerous examples with and without PAS I can honestly say that for me (at least) the non-assisted examples are far nicer to drive, providing a level of feel and communication not found in the PAS equipped cars.
I would describe the overall condition as good to very good and the car runs and drives superbly to say the very least! It goes like a rocket, corners like it’s on rails and sounds epic!!!
Please contact me (Mark) for further information and to arrange a viewing.
I have heaps more photos and can take detailed extras/videos for any seriously interested parties.
