Description:

1977 Triumph TR7

I bought this car 4 years ago and have enjoyed roughly 13,000 trouble free miles. The car is special in many ways. Born in 1977 as a TR7, it was restored and hot roded around 2010 for Senator Mike Carrel of Seattle,WA. To my understanding, the senator passed away 2013. The guy I bought it from claimed it came out of the estate.

The car is fast, very fast and corners like a go cart but is comfortable at the same time. Lots of room, I'm 6'2". The interior was new at time of build and still looks new. There is no known issues other that the silver paint job is not well done. I painted the top when installing the new glass top. Its a 3 stage PPG that looks BRG in the sun and black otherwise. The car also has a brand new windshield mounted flush for better appearance. The cold air intake, currently mounted, works well. The buyer also receives a stock hood if he wants the stock appearance.
Please ask any question you might have prior to bidding. Ill be glad to answer all I can. Testdrive and inspection prior to bidding is always recommended.
