1980 Triumph TR8 fully restored to the tune of £45,000!
Originally destined for California as a LHD, this example was rebuilt by Triumph as a right hand drive TR8 and as a result was fitted with the 3.5 litre V8 engine with a manual gearbox and sold in the UK.
Purchased by the current registered keeper in 2011, he kept the car in storage before sending it to British classic car restorers M. V. Classics Ltd., of Southampton, Hampshire in 2014. Over the next two and half years they were responsible for the complete restoration at a cost in excess of £45,000, this included professional painting the car in this incredible and faultless shade of blue whilst the interior retrimmed with black leather and a new black soft top roof.
In 2018 it was registered in Guernsey where it has remained, with very little use, until being re-imported to the UK and registered with its original factory registration number.
Further work was carried out while in the Channel Islands this included a new alternator and replacing the twin SU’s, with manifold, for a new ‘four pot’ Holly downdraft carburettor.
Supplied with a V5 registration document and a file containing old MoT test certificates, a Heritage certificate, photographs and invoices from the restoration.
This vehicle will be supplied with an oil and filter service carried out, an MOT where required and 3 Months nationwide Autoguard warranty with option to extend.
