It was a race car project that is now abandoned. It has all the suspension and subframe as well as a partially built roll cage that probably should be removed to start over. The rear bulkhead is cut out and so is the trunk floor. It has a narrowed 8.8" ford rear end and front coilovers built up from spax shocks too.
The dash, bumper skins, subframe and front suspension. set of upgraded sway bars, front and rear glass, steering rack, steering wheel, three wheels are also included.

Selling my Triumph TR7V8. This 1978 Triumph TR7 spent its entire life in California. Still wearing the original, factory applied Carmine Red paint it is in "very good" condition apart for a few paint chips and a small ding but only to be expected for a 40-year-old car. $35,000 invested converting it to V8 with all brand new parts. The engine was specifically made for this car in the U.S by a renowned TR7/8 specialist (Woody Cooper from The Wedge Shop). See video and dyno sheet below. Car did 260hp on the dyno.

I bought this car with 5982 miles on it and it turned over to 6k on the way to the gas station to fill up for the long drive home to Richmond, CA. The original owner it appears bought this last year production, only year Fuel Injected Triumph TR7 Convertible as an investment to be squirreled away forever in Canada until he ran into financial difficulties a year or two later and sold it through a dealer in New York to this guy I bought some Morris Minor parts from in Morro Bay with only 583 miles on it. I think that this car has more miles on it shipping than it was ever driven!
Upon seeing this amazing time capsule in this guys driveway and having some history with these cars going back more than 30 years ago, I inquired if he might sell it and eventually I received a call a few weeks later that I could buy it. Getting the car home I dropped it straight off to my friend's British car garage to go through it top to bottom and prepare the car for the Yucatan heat! Almost $5k later and after carefully saving all of the original parts for posterity, this car drives better than new.
