It is an absolute pleasure to offer this low mileage, example of this much sought after and extremely rapid British Sports Convertible. The car is a non power steering model and as the enhusiasts will testify is the preffered choice for driving dynamics and feel. In single ownership since 1998 this vehicle came into our possession having been laid up for a number of years and has undergone a comprehensive re-commissioning program in our workshop resulting in a seriously detailed and attractive vehicle. I am confident to say the condition of this vehicle now places it firmly in the upper band of TVR Griffiths in existance today.
Recommissioning works have included, full engine service, new coolant temp sender, stepper valve refurbishment, new radiator hoses, radiator removal flush and repaint, new coolant, new brake discs front & rear, new brake fluid, new front and rear drop links, new roll bar bushes, new tyres all round. new brake flexible hoses. Various items removed for shot blasting and powder coating including both rocker covers in the correct purple. New Stainless Steel Engine bay dress kit fitted.
Often reffered too in buyers guides "as items to check" the chassis has been steam cleaned and thoroughly checked to reveal only superficial corrossion, the exposed chassis has been carefully sanded to remove any loose paint and treated with metal ready before being given 3 coats of PQR15 Chassis Paint. The underarch areas have been treated to a fresh coat of the correct texture non bitumen stone protection. The finished chassis has been thoroughly wayoyled with clear product to not spoil the impressive look.
The front nose cone has been professionally re-painted to the highest standard to remove any stone chips present and the remaining paintwork has been detail polished to the highest standard and gleams with an exceptional depth of shine. The wheels are all in perfect condition and are shod with new Toyo Performance Tyres. The interior is original and looks unmarked as are the carpets which show no signs of fading or ageing. The Hood is original and simply the best I have ever seen.
This Car drives superbly as you would expect having been given so much attention - If you are in the market for a TVR Griffith then this one should definately be on your list to view - I think you will travel far and wide to find another so nice at this price.
With TVR Prices on the rise the Iconic Griffith provides an excellent Sports Car to enjoy and if you are looking for a solid future investment this example should definately be on your list to view.
