1986 TVR 280i Convertible - Series 2, US 'Federal Spec'

Professional conversion to 5.0 V8 and T5 transmission - runs/drives great, sounds great too (butnever obnoxious). Lighter than the stock V6/4 speed. Rear suspension reinforced for V8 power. Restrained cosmetic mods

~31000 miles shown. Auto Check flags an error that looks to be a typo or misread in 2003. So legally it might be 'true mileage unknown'. Speedo and Odometer read somewhat fast/high due to T5 conversion.

Good body, interior, glass and electrical

Alpine stereo with MP3/iPod/iPhone player

Not a trailer queen - it's driven regularly, although seldom far, and is over 31 years old. Therefor I must state that it is sold 'as-is'. Incidental scratches and blemishes remain but many common issueshave been addressed. Dash clock iscorrect twice a day. Chassis is in good condition, althoughpowder coathas peeled and surface scale is present. Our close inspection for annual inspection in May this year found no areas of concern, The car has been garaged/stored winters by meand came from Florida before that. Wet 'only' when washed or traveling to/from Woodwork - the TVR Club's annual meet.

If you'refrom the US or Canadaandnot already a TVR Car Club North America member, I'll pay your dues for this year when you buy this little gem.

A copy of 'TheWedge Bible' is included, as is a workshop manual for the 88 Mustang engine donor.Some other spare parts will be provided at the fullprice sale.

Plenty of info on TVR and the 'wedge' cars is available online, feel free to contact me with questions about this car.These are simple cars to maintain and run - thisone's even easier with the 5.0. Selling only due to another TVR acquisition.

Buyer responsible for pickup from Amherst, NH or other arrangements. Seller can assist within reason and is happy to make the car available for local viewing/inspection.
