This desirable TVR roadster is a lefthand drive example finished in the pleasing combination of black on tan vinyl interior trim. It was supplied new in Canada to lefthand drive specification including metric speedometer and odometer by TVRNA (Toronto, ON). Only twelve examples of the ~100 LHD builds were imported to Canada. There have been two keepers to date, the first of whom retained the vehicle until 2004 and the current owner. It has been regularly maintained and in addition to routine maintenance has benefited from a new bespoke SS exhaust system; shocks; refurbished seats; and new tyres. This lovely long term ownership, 57,000 km classic TVR is now offered complete with original top, drop-in side curtains, casset AM/FM radio and signed glove box by Matin Lilley owner of TVR and commissioner of this vehicle. Mr Lilley autographed the car during 25th Out of Woodwork TVRCCNA event in NJ USA. It is unrestored and retains all of its originality including ministry approval sticker on the safety belts. In addition it is a recognized award winner, and under current ownership always dry stored and never driven in the rain. There are very few examples of the 3000S available for purchase in the world. Although not concours, the originality and extraordinary condition make this vehicle very rare indeed. Available for purchase for $39,900 USD.
(SOLD) AVO adjustable shocks were installed with custom springs lowering the car about 2". Ground clearance is still very good since the wheel size was increased to 15" over the original 14" design. Grade 8 bolts replaced all the original hardware making this chassis safe and structurally sound. The car originally came with rubber bumpers, but these were replaced with new chrome bumpers all around at a cost of $3,600. The vinyl interior was updated to all Connolly leather, and an AM/FM, 6 CD changer was added. The motor was totally rebuilt using parts from Burton Motors in England. A fast road cam was added, new pistons, and total seal rings. The original two-barrel carb was removed, and triple DCNF Webers and custom intake was added. This feature alone was $5,000! For reliability, a Petronix breakerless ignition was added along with an MSD. This car has a 50/50 front to rear weight bias. The handling is fantastic and the acceleration and speed are unbelievable. An estimated 246 HP is being provided by the motor. Custom header and ANSA exhaust give this car a rich, deep rumble. A custom aluminum radiator shroud and electric cooling fan prevent this car from ever overheating. You ca
