|Notes:||Spontaneous purchase to use over the summer months. An absolute hoot to drive, whilst the straight through exhaust system always ensured a glorious soundtrack!|
|Fate:||Sold to Charlie Reynolds from Leominster.|
|Modifications:||Detailed transformation from humble TR7 FHC to full, factory TR8 spec over a two year period, 1992-3, using the correct subframe, exhaust manifolds, radiator (with dual electric fans), bonnet (rust-free import from USA) and by relocating the battery to the boot. Suspension lowered and brakes uprated at the same time. Many body panels replaced - using new parts.
Later, in 2008, the car was rebuilt again, including an interior retrim plus 16" wheels from an MG TF added. It was then resprayed in BMW Imola Red (had been BL Carnelian Red previously).
