1977 TVR 2500M

Short Description
What must be one of the most original, lowest-mile TVR 2500Ms... my 1977, #3668TM – the final production year and one of only 947 2500Ms made 1971-1977 (one of only 76 for 1977) -- has less than 5,000 original miles. This is my fourth TVR over the years. Purchased from the original owner, it is extremely well-documented with original Bill of Sale, window sticker, and complete service history. An unmolested original -- like a barn find, but better. Not a project car, not a restored car (though looks it) -- it is a “preservation class” original in beautiful condition…amazing condition for its 38 years. A car is only original once. This is a rare find.

Overview
Almost everything on the car is original. No one has messed with it. It’s “all there,” just as it left the factory:
- Paint and top are original and pristine
- The factory Weathershields LTD, Birmingham, England sliding top is original
- Five factory original T-slot wheels with good tires (need polishing)
- Five difficult-to-find factory optional Wolfrace wheels (4 with good tires) also included. Beautifully polished, with new lug hardware and center caps. On car now.
- Blaupunct radio (working) is an original option, noted on the window sticker
- All original smog hardware intact
- Original coilover shocks and springs still present

The few items that are not original include:
- Carpeting in footwell floors and rear deck has been replaced
- Pertronix electronic ignition replaced mechanical points in distributor
- ANSA exhaust system installed by previous owner
- Steel gas tank replaced with custom aluminum tank by previous owner
- Tires – all are good with plenty of tread, but larger than stock size
- Replacement maintenance items like brake lines, water hoses, etc.
- Some wiring spade connectors have been replaced with non-original style spade connectors

The car had been gone over before I bought it, all documented. During my ownership, my mechanic - a specialist in British sports cars -- did things like carb rebuild, brake servo, handbrake light switch, parking brake adjustment, brake fluid flush, engine oil & filter, Redline MTL in transmission, Pertronix electronic ignition (my one non-original upgrade), tuning, alignment, and tire balance.

Always garaged. Original owner stated the car had never been driven in the rain (take that or leave it). It hasn’t during my ownership either (well, it got sprinkled on once on the way back from a show). This car receives lots of attention at shows or wherever it goes.

As with any vehicle of this age, this one is sold as is with no warranty offered or implied.

This is a rare opportunity for a TVR enthusiast to acquire a unique, time warp, factory original classic or who wants a complete car to start with where nothing needs rebuilding and has little wear. Please contact me with your questions or to discuss at jastx1@verizon.net.
