1990 TVR 400SE

Posted: 24 August 2020
Serial #:
Price: $23,900
Location: Wilmington, DE
Contact Info: Steve Cavanaugh - (404) 308-8794
One of only 81 400SE produced in 1990. Only 242 total production from 1988-1991. This is the only one known to be in the US. Clean Georgia title. This car attracts attention anytime it's out. People always want to know what it it a Ferrari? that a Lotus?. The throaty sound through the headers into a single large exhaust is unlike anything I have heard. Car is in very good condition both inside and outside. Top is in great shape. Paint is gorgeous, very deep and rich. The body overall is in good shape, meaning it displays the factory wavy panels in a couple of places, stone chips on the nose and a couple of very small cracks around the headlight buckets. After all, it's a factory composite body built 30 years ago. Car comes with a brand new set of 16 inch; 2 piece OZ wheels still in the box. Was going to switch from the OEM 15 inch, haven't gotten around to it.

1987 TVR 280i

Price: $12,500
Location: Detroit, MI
Contact Info: Mike Martens (586) 214-6453
1987 TVR 280i. Factory AUTOMATIC. 26,000 miles. Car has been stored in climate controlled storage for the last 13 years, but driven a couple weeks each year during the summer to keep bearings, seals, fuel system, ect. intact. AUTOMATIC transmission which IMO drives way better than a stick. (Based on the fact that this is my 3rd TVR- 2nd 280i). Team Dynamics Racing Wheels (have stock wheels and tires). Fully adjustable AVO shocks. Dual exhaust. White with Navy Blue top and interior. Never driven winters. VERY clean underside too. NO RUST. Very nice car, just needs a little attention.

Body and paint is in near perfect condition. Paint has never been touched. Car has NEVER been painted. NO rust on frame.

The seats could use new covers because the vinyl side panels have discolored and has some cracks in it but seating area are in great shape for 30 year old car. Rear window is not perfectly clean but not bad either. Most of the time the top is down so this is a non issue.

1984 TVR 280i Coupe

Posted: 28 April 2020
Serial #:
Price: $10,000
Location: Amherst, OH
Contact Info: Charlie Birkline
This car is one of the few 280i Wedge Coupes in the country It was purchased several years ago from a collector up in Bangor Maine. During his ownership the car was painted, body and chassis and was gone over to keep it in good condition. It has a true dual exhaust attached to a 2.8 Ford V6. The interior was redone by a employee of the Dexter shoe company. The smell of leather is still fresh in the car. There is a small foot rest added by the PO which works out amazingly well and is currently in the car. It also comes with a drink holder which is removable.

The car runs very well and needs next to nothing. It needs hood gas struts, typical of a car this old and for some reason the temp gauge is intermittent. Last time it acted up the lead was loose. I'll check it out in the next few days.

I also have a set of series 2 bumpers front and back (still hung up in the UK due to the virus) and Series 2 morror pods. Also a 5 spd bellhousing. A T5 will bolt to it. Manuals and all paperwork I received at my purchase.

I'm rather firm in my price due to using the funds to buy another TVR. But we can talk. If your interested feel free to contact me for more info.
