Default Tvr?

I am guessing that most people have never seen one of these:


1985 TVR 280i, hand built Brit car with tube frame and hand made fiberglass body. They made 876 convertibles. Powered by a Ford 2.8 Cologne V6 with a 4 speed. 31K original miles. I bought it 1 month ago.



Typical Brit dash..


Nice interior...


Ford Power:


It's currently a 4 speed, I'm going to turn it into a 5 speed.
Some sphincter took out the A/C, which I will put back in. Dickwad....

I kicked around the idea of installing a Rover/Buick aluminum V8, but the car is wayyyy too clean to mess with.
I don't think it has ever been driven in sloppy weather. The chassis is spotless.
Anyway, I have a ton more toys....

Like this one:


And:


And:


Ok, enough of that.

Electronics made by the prince of darkness himself. All joking aside that's a damn clean car you have.

Thanks.
It is a PIA to keep it that clean. Even when it's in the garage, it gets dirty. It's a blast to drive though.

They could have designed that big box with the radio and hvac better instead of looking like they just dropped a big box in there.

Think I saw one worked on on the Wheeler dealers TV show once.

You are probably right ^^^.
I think there isn't a lot of room behind the dash. It is pretty packed behind there from what I have seen.

Remember, these POSs are all hand made. No real production line to speak of. I have seen several here and in England. The same run of cars has slight differences in interiors, engines, wheels and tires, stuff.

The cars are built around a tube frame with little room for anything.
When one of the lifts is free at the shop, I'll post under car pix.

Man, you always seem to find the rarest or off the chain types of cars.
