Round-tube backbone frame, VW torsion-bar suspension at both ends, Austin-Healey 100-Six front drum brakes (discs optional from '60), BMC final-drive unit, Consul/Zephyr MkII windscreen, and the squat glass-fibre TVR coupè bodyshell. Wire wheels standard, and under the bonnet you get what you pay for: 1172cc sidevalve Ford (optionally supercharged, and with possibility of special four-speed gearbox), 105E Ford ohv, Coventry-Climax ohv, or BMC B-series from MGA, sometimes in HRG-Derrington tune. Rather a hotchpotch, and later TVRs probably preferable.
