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.

Parts for Sale:

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.
