1985 Other Makes Tasmin/280i Convertible

THIS IS A 1985 TVR TASMIN/280I CONVERTIBLE.
IF YOU MIGHT NOT BE FAMILIAR WITH THIS SPORTY BRITISH CAR, IT WAS HANDMADE IN BLACKPOOL ENGLAND. AND THE TASMIN WAS FIRST MADE AVAILABLE IN AMERICA IN LATE 1982 WHICH ENDED ITS THREE YEAR ABSENCE FROM THE USA. PRODUCTION OF THE 280i ESSENTIALLY ENDED IN 1987, THE SAME YEAR THAT TVR LEFT THE U.S. MARKET FOR GOOD. TOTAL PRODUCTION OF THE V-6 WEDGES REACHED JUST 1,167 CARS, 862 OF WHICH WERE CONVERTIBLES. AND IT IS ESTIMATED THAT 400 TO 500 CARS REACHED THE STATES.........
SO AS YOU CAN SEE THIS IS A RARE CAR.!!! BUT DUE TO UNFORTUNATE CIRCUMSTANCES, WE ARE SELLING OUR TVR WHICH WE OWNED FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS BUT DUE TO MY HUSBAND'S STROKE, IT IS BEING AUCTIONED. WE HAD FUN DRIVING IT, AS IT HANDLES UNBELIEVABLY AROUND CORNERS AND ON HIGHWAY.!! THIS TVR HAS 54,000 MILES, 2.8 L FORD V6 ENGINE WITH BOSCH FUEL INJECTION. IT IS EQUIPPED WITH POWER WINDOW, AIR CONDITIONING, AM/FM RADIO, LEATHER SEATS AND WALNUT TRIM FOR THE DASH AND DOORS. IT IS A VERY COMFORTABLE AND ROOMY CAR AND WE ARE SURE THAT THE NEW OWNER WILL BECOME A TVR ENTHUSIAST AND WILL CERTAINLY ENJOY THIS SPORTY CAR...!!
....... DUE TO SOME MEDICAL BILLS WHICH ARE IN NEED OF PAYMENT, WE ARE SELLING IT AT A LOW STARTING PRICE OF $4000, NO RESERVE. ! .... IT HAS BEEN OVER A YEAR SINCE MY HUSBAND HAS DRIVEN IT DUE TO HIS STROKE. THEREFORE, IT HAS A BATTERY MAINTAINER TO KEEP THE BATTERY CHARGED. SINCE MY HUSBAND'S STROKE HE HAS NOT DRIVEN IT FOR ABOUT ONE YEAR, AND FOR SOME REASON, IT SEEMS TO HAVE A PROBLEM TURNING OVER, WE WERE TOLD THAT IT MIGHT BE A FUEL INJECTION PROBLEM. HOWEVER, SOME ONE WHO IS MECHANICALLY FAMILIAR WITH THIS ISSUE WOULD BE ABLE TO START IT. YOU ARE WELCOME TO COME SEE THIS CAR ANYTIME. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS. 732-890-0674 THANKS FOR LOOKING.... AND GOOD LUCK BIDDING...
