Description: A fine automobile for sale at eBay online auction!

Trevor (TreVoR = TVR) Wilkinson built his first Special in 1947, but did not produce a significant number of cars until the late 1950s, with the introduction of the TVR Jomar. The basic design and concept of the Jomar--hand welded tube chassis, double wishbone suspension, unstressed fiberglass body, drivetrain sourced from large manufacturers--was retained all through the Sixties and Seventies. Whimsically named Grantura, Tuscan, and Vixen--as well as the wild, U.S.-assembled Cobra-Killer, the Griffith of 1964-66--were finally succeeded by the M-Series of 1972-1979.

Power plant of choice for U.S.-bound Ms was the 2.5-liter Triumph straight six; the car was aptly named 2500M, the "M" being a nod to TVR's owner at the time, Martin Lilley. Introduced at the Earls Court Motor Show in 1971, just 946 2500Ms were assembled during the next six years.

Almost 35 years after the final "M" arrived on these shores, it's hard to unearth a decent TVR. Many of the few remaining examples are either in need of full restoration or have been modified to great extent by well-meaning but misguided novice owners. To find a bone stock, well-kept example from sunny California, such as this one, is almost a miracle!

Built in Blackpool, England, the 1973 TVR 2500M presented here, Chassis Number * 2728TM *, was designated for export and sold new in the United States.

Lightweight fiberglass coachwork is straight and smooth; due to its composite nature, you'll never have to worry about corrosion! One neuralgic spot are the doors: here, they fit very well, without any sagging. All glass and weatherstripping is in excellent condition, the windshield having been replaced recently.

Just like its sports car cousins, Jaguar's E-Type and Triumph's Spitfire, the TVR features a large, forward-opening bonnet for easy access to the mechanicals. Engine bay looks factory correct and quite clean, which comes as no surprise, considering the car's California history.
