1975 Triumph TR7: Too Many Tickets

Triumph TR7

The seller of this 1975 Triumph TR7 with a Ford V8 swap claims his right foot caused him too much trouble, leading to the car being parked and put up for auction here on eBay with a starting bid of $1,000 and no reserve. The small block engine in a lightweight chassis like the TR7 is likely a good combination for finding yourself on the wrong side of the law, and despite being idle for several years, could probably be brought back to life with relative ease. Other upgrades include the C4 transmission and a Chevy Monza rear end, along with a ground effects kit that hasn’t been installed. It appears some bodywork has already been started and all that’s needed now is a new owner to kick-start this British bad-boy project. Could it be you?

    if i wanted a TR7 that was faster or had a V8 in it that would be a TR8, i think.

    Needs work to get it running and without receipts for the presumably low mile motor and trams, then a grand is all it’s worth. Would be a fun, fast little car.

    I saw a home video shot in the early 90’s by my uncle(R.I.P. Uncle Bill) in alligator,ms of 2 brothers street racing a pair of these,One had a 514 BBF and the other had a 496 BBC. No hood on either and the valve covers on the chevy stuck up past the top of the fenders. LOL fast as hell and just as hard to keep straight.
