1990 TVR S Series (S2)

Posted: 8 January 2018
Serial #:
Price: $28,500 ovno
Location: Dallas, TX
Contact Info: Jay Nield - (972) 955-9189
Description: Rare 1990 TVR S Series (S2) with amazing paintwork for the year (located in DFW, Texas)

Normally-aspirated 2.9 liter V6 – Rear Wheel Drive – Right hand drive – Stick Shift, with circa 80,000 miles (exact mileage NOT guaranteed as speedometer broke a few months ago but reasonably comprehensive service history file supports approximate mileage). A new speedometer is current being rebuilt by specialist UK company and should be completed in January before being shipped to Texas – this will be included as part of the sale). When new, this car boasted 170HP for a car weighing just over 2000 lbs, giving it a very respectable 0-60 mph time of 6.1 seconds. Road handling is what you’d expect from a British sports car with a 51% / 49% Front/Rear weight distribution. The straight-through exhaust gives this car a sound guaranteed to make you smile.

This is an opportunity to acquire one of a very small number of TVR S Series within the US, as this model was not made available to the American market. I have driven this car almost every day for the past month, including the drive up to DFW from Galveston port. This is one of the good ones, in a stunning color that attracts considerable interest from people who see it. It was recently imported from TVR enthusiasts in the UK, and has had the important work done – it has been subject to a body-off chassis refurbishment (including outriggers which is a common problem for older cars) at a cost of around $5K, and had the roof (and all bolts/roof locators) renewed a few years ago and is still in excellent condition. Additionally, any deteriorated weather strip on roof and doors was replaced within the last few weeks. With the exception of a few age-related stone chips which have been touched up, the paintwork on this car is amazing and turns heads – the bodywork was the subject of a complete sand and repair before 2K primer, block & wet on all panels, 2K original TVR color, and 2K lacquer followed by flat and polish. This car is complimented by 8 spoke O.Z. alloy wheels in unmarked matt black.

The interior is very good for its age and the leather has recently been cleaned.






1986 TVR 280i Series 2

Posted: 8 April 2018
Serial #: SA9DH28P3GB019100
Price: $75 per ticket
Location: Kintnersville, PA
Contact Info: TVR Car Club of North America
Description: If you haven't heard, the TVR Car Club of North America will be raffling off what we understand to be the very first US Series II 280i (VIN number SA9DH28P3GB019100). The car is in good mechanical condition and has just under 60,000 miles on the odometer. We’ve intentionally chosen to raffle this car off and made the tickets affordable ($75 per ticket) because the goal of this isn’t to make a ton of money for the club. Rather, we want to publicize the marque and hopefully the low entry cost will encourage owners of other British cars, or even those who have never owned a British car, to look at TVRs. Haggerty and Black Book CPI place the car's value at $8-12k depending on how you assess the condition (good to excellent), which also reflects what sellers are asking for similar cars here in the TVR Trader, so please spread the word in your other car clubs and online forums. Buy your tickets here.

1984 TVR Tasmin LT1 V8 Conversion

Posted: 18 May 2019
Price: $12,900
Location: Blue Mountains, Ontario, Canada
Contact Info: Bill Rogers - (705) 445-6127
Description: 1984 TVR Tasmin/Chevrolet LT1 V8 conversion with accompanying Camaro 6 speed manual transmission. Engine has aluminium heads and is rated @ approximately 300 hp. Remanufactured ECU unit with a number of updating components. Just over 46,000 original miles on the TVR Chassis. Chassis is tubular steel space frame construction with minimal surface blemishes and in very good structural condition. Body is hand laid fiberglass construction with minor stress cracks usual to fiberglass bodies and recently repainted black with wide gold stripe on hood and trunk lid. Wheels are upgraded ‘RTX POISON’ 5 spoke alloy in excellent condition. Tires are 17” ( Front = 205/40ZR/17 – Rear = 225/40ZR/17) Steel Belted Radials with no cuts or cracks with only about 10% wear on each tread. New brakes all around including park brake. Interior is in very good original condition. Many other miscellaneous mechanical improvements (contact seller for full list) to make car fit for recent inspection for Ontario Safety Standards Certificate which was issued in February 2019.

This car is in running and driving condition and has seen about 1500 miles since completion. It still requires some additional sorting and tuning to button up the engine swap and realize the full potential of the 5.7 litre LT1 V8 engine and the Camaro transmission. The swap utilizes mostly GM wiring and components so it should be familiar to anyone comfortable working with the 1990's era LT1 set-up.

Gas Tank for 2500M

Posted: 10 November 2018
Price: $25
Location: Sterling, VA
Contact Info: Hayden Olenik
Description: I got this tank from another club member in a lot of parts I picked up, believe he said it came from a 77 2500M though it looks (and should be) the same as the tank in my 74. Tank is largely solid but has a few pinholes that need to be brazed/filled. Reportedly has not had fuel in it for more than a decade. Good chance to pick up a spare and have it patched and lined without taking your car off the road.
