1980 Triumph Other
Here you see here is a very well sorted example with a notebook of receipts and upgrades. The previous owner traded it to us after owning it 6 years. He bought it from a friend who had it for several years prior to that. The car currently has 56,000 miles which are actual. Paper work is extensive
The drivetrain and suspension work very well together featuring many upgrades. The 3.5 Liter 215 CI V8 was rated at 139 HP 180lbs of torque stock when new. We would guess this car is around 200 HP now. The dual stock 1 Barrel Zenith-Stromberg carbs have been replaced with a Edelbrock Intake and a Holley 390 4 barrel carb. The engine has an Erson Cam with Cam Grind sheet included. It has Stainless Headers, Stainless exhaust, and new electric fuel pump. The rear differential is a Quaife Limited Slip from Rimmer Brothers, a noted Triumph Performance parts supplier. The transmission is the stock 5 speed . There has been many mechanical upgrades the last few years. The brakes have been upgraded with Hawk performance pads, a new brake master cylinder, as well as a Willwood proportioning. valve. The clutch slave cylinder and alternator are new.This TR8 is very easy to drive slowly around town or as fast as you want on the open road. Take it to dinner at the country club at night and go autocrossing the next day. It sounds awesome with a deep V8 rumble. This a isn’t your daddy’s Spitfire. It’s got a cockpit designed for American’s. The previous owner is 6’ 230lb’s and didn’t put the seat all the way back.
