1981 TVR Tasmin

TVR Tasmin

Price:   £5500

I got this TVR Tasmin in a few weeks ago knowing that I'd be offering it up for sale once I'd sorted out a couple of problems. The main one was with the gear shift, it wasn't possible to get the car into reverse and finding the forward gears was not easy. It came down to the lack of bushing under the shifter, a new one was sourced from RaceTech and it transformed the driving experience. It was also missing boot struts so 2 new ones have been sourced and installed. The previous owner had carried out quite a bit of work before I got it with a new brake master cylinder and front calipers, new springs all round and all new tyres. I took it for MoT a couple of weeks ago and it passed with no advisories. The 2.8 litre Ford Cologne V6 engine runs really sweetly with no tappet noise - uncommon for one of the these. The Ford Type E 4-speed gearbox shift easily and works just as it should. The interior is surprisingly good, nice carpets and seats and recently refurbished dashboard woodwork. Now ready to go and bound to delight its new owner. Call or email to arrange a viewing and a test drive.
