Paris Blue 1998 Chimaera 4.0L (1998)




Owned by me the last fifteen years.
MOT until February 2018, full history of servicing, fixes, 'breakdowns', extras, purchases. The recent MOT required new rear tyres and shocks.
Not been crashed, thrashed nor stashed (stored).
84K genuine mileage. In recent years it has not been used as a commuter car, more travelling between Wales and the capital.
Classic interior of dark blue carpets, seats and upholstery as well as brushed metal dashboard.
This car is nearly twenty years old, so do not expect a showroom preserved model.
However it has served me well, has been used continually and so condition reflects this.
Items such as radio, speakers, and roof could do with upgrades so along with the original chassis this may suit someone intending to do a complete restoration at some point. Has the normal list of TVR idiosyncrasies to enjoy.
External bodywork is excellent, with the addition of the roof scratches by the boot lid, these were there when I obtained it in February 2002 from David Gerald (had two previous owners for first 16K).
Had the front resprayed in 2015 to eliminate the stone chips and cracks that had accumulated over the previous 16 years.
Engine bay is fine, not immaculate.
Car is viewable in Chiswick area of West London
