1969 TVR Tuscan (1969)
Car Condition: Show Level We started with this chassis and built the fastest TVR on the planet. Ric Wood from England built the Cosworth GAA Essex V-6 motor (a 312 HP motor with triple downdraft DCNF Weber carbs). The motor was matched into a world class, close ratio Ford T-5 transmission. From there, the heavy-duty drive shaft couples with a Corvette Posi traction differential. The half shafts are custom heavy-duty half shafts with machined M-21 U-joints (each one costs $278!). The uprights have been reinforced with ½" aluminum plate, and the rear vented discs are stopped by Outlaw four piston calipers. The same type of aggressive engineering was applied to the front suspension. The uprights are reinforced and vented rotors and Outlaw 4-piston calipers. Both front and rear sway bars are custom and fully adjustable. Spax adjustable gas racing shocks are in both the front and rear. A custom header system was fabricated and is easily removed for maintenance. The fuel cell that sits in the rear has square tube steel surrounding the entire cell for safety if a rear collision would occur. An 8-point cage houses the driver in a safe and secure environment. Autometer gauges keep the driver well informed. The brake bias knob is at the driver's fingertips, along with brake bias gauges so no guesswork remains when you adjust the brakes. The rear window has been modified to open like a hatch for easy access to any internal item. The entire bonnet is easily lifted off the car for an open engine area -- it literally takes 15 seconds off and on. The car has custom fiberglass fenders, no ugly flares, custom bonnet, and is all perfectly painted!
