Camaro V6 Powered: 1978 TVR 2500M

This 1978 TVR 2500 looks like a solid foundation for a restoration project, and certainly a good buy at the current asking price of just $5,500. Although these light-weight British sports cars were known for their Ford-derived V8 powerplants… more»

Rare Coupe Body: 1984 Model TVR 280i

Don’t mind the mistaken Facebook label on this posting – it’s no Ford Mustang. It’s actually a pretty special hardtop version of a classic TVR 280i, which we more typically see in roadster form. This one is described as… more»

One Of The Last 1979 TVR Taimar Built

This is a car that’s familiar to me, as I used to see it routinely at a now-shuttered vintage automobile shop in Rhode Island. It’s one of those rare cases where I can attest that a vehicle looks as… more»

One of 192: 1965 TVR Griffith

I am part of a very informal local “club” of enthusiasts that partake in monthly driving tours and a member has a later TVR Tuscan, which bears some resemblance to this desirable Griffith model. While the engineering is a… more»

Rare TVR S3 2.9 in Texas!

Beautiful Barn Find: 1959 TVR Grantura

This gorgeous 1969 TVR Grantura is a rarity in the United States, and really anywhere considering the low volume production numbers. Just 100 Series 1 cars were made, making a barn find example of one that has seemingly survived… more»

Rare British Export: 1988 TVR 350i

Frame Job: 1974 TRV 2500

Years ago, I would spot a TVR 2500M like this one on my school bus route, rotting away next to a garage. Had I been about 10 years older at the time, I would have made every effort to… more»
