Ex Works Triumph TR7 V8 Rallycar
An original Ex Works TR7 V8 rally car , has just under gone a 2 year sympathetic bare shell restoration (photo file available) . Rebuilding the original components where ever possible , retaining the original bodyshell , engine , gear box axle , brakes , Dash board and wiring loom etc.
This car originally built for 1978 Lombard RAC rally , was then famously sold via Del Lines to Charles Golding in 1979 who successfully rallied it for a further 25 years.
Due its lack of owners it has stayed extremely original , the body shell still has the welded intregal roll cage in the front screen pillars , the dash board is totally authentic with its felt top , screen , Halda twinmaster , pea lights , original Magnesium minilite wheels (8″ front & 9″ rears) and many more small details that only a car of this heritage would have .
The car has been finished in the “SPARKRITE” colours from when it formed a 2 car team along with Roger Clark for the 1980 Lombard RAC rally. The car carried Charles’ own private plate for the last 3 decades MUC1D.
Mechanically – it is a full spec. Group 4 TR7 V8 rally car, fully rebuilt engine , quad 48 Webers , dry sumped Close ratio gear box , 4HA axle , AP brakes and rear , bias pedal box and hyd hand brake , Bilstein suspension alround , Heavy duty X member, cranked billet steering arms etc.
Included in the sale are the original Homologation papers , magazine articles , old MOTS , photos , V5C , MSA log book etc. Would be great to see this car out competing on Historic rallies again.
The car is available with a large spares package.
