TVR Grantura 1961 - SOLD
This is now SOLD. Search for similar items.
This TVR began his life in Liverpool in 1961.
Campaigned since day 1 in several national races, and in 1989 was imported to Italy for the Campionato Velocità Auto Storiche (back in the day this was one of the best championships of all Europe).
Full restoration frame off in 1995 and then unused since.
The mechanics have been kept in working condition. The engine is running fine with good oil pressure and steady temperature. It keeps the idle just fine!
Very rare and desirable HRG Cylinder head with its original Weber 40DCOE carburators.
Brakes are in working condition.
All the instruments work fine.
Nevertheless the car could benefit from some attention. I would go for a new paintjob (original color: Italian Racing Red), correct rear fenders, spoke wheels, and a master cleaning of all the original racing bits.
This car is elegible for the best events out there:
Equipe GTS pre 63
Spa Six Hours
And the brand new Fifties Legends by Peter Auto
Update: The TVR can be road registered with the original number plate in UK. The plate reg. in the photo is not the original one.
