1978 TVR 3000S


car description

(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
