Description for Triumph TR8 1981

Please look at all pictures carefully.I have included the maximum allowed which is 24.
This is a clear title PROJECT.....It needs re-assembly.
The story of the car is that it was totally dismantled several years ago,repainted in its ORIGINAL TRITON GREEN PAINT..The owner passed away and the car was put in the corner of a British sports Car repair shop lot in Florida with no cover and a few years of rain and wet leaves have left some repairs needed in the floors.Other than that,its a solid car.
It is an original 81 CA car (SUPER RARE) which had fuel injection from the factory,but the Injection system and components from this car are long gone.Better off sourcing a carb intake and Stromberg carbs or Edelbrock and Holley
The most important TR8 parts have been sourced:Driveshaft,power steering reservoir,engine mounts,Radiator,Rad brackets and electric fans.
Shocks all around have been replaced with Spax
Engine is a good one with no concerns and NO leaks.Transmission good also with good clutch.New Poly bushings have been installed on Trans shift tower..
Interior is all there and some finishing is required.Decent carpet and very nice seats..Correct Dashboard with correct speedo and Tach (5500rpm).This Speedo is Unique to 81 and not used on 80s.
All good glass,excellent windshield.
Correct Wheels.
Convertible top frame is included and is in excellent mechanical condition.
A TR7 Spyder parts car is included for no extra cost.I strongly encourage you to take the parts car as you will need it for all those pesky little small stuff
This vehicle is mostly dismantled and I will not put all the parts in the car.YOU WILL NEED TO COME AND PICK IT UP WITH A TRAILER AND TRUCK BED FOR ALL THE PARTS....I do have loading facilities.
THE TR8 I BELIEVE IS A 3 OWNER CAR..SOLD NEW IN CA AND THEN TO TN AND NEVER REGISTERED SINCE TN...(Tennessee Title)
PLEASE ASK ALL QUESTIONS BEFORE BIDDING..YOU ARE VERY WELCOME TO VIEW THE CAR IN THE FLESH.
