RHD TR8 FHC FOR SALE – Posted 30/9/23

Offers invited around 20K UKP

Unique opportunity to buy this early test TR8 FHC with EFi

This is what I know about the car. I have loads of documentation for it and below are probably the main bits of info.

Document – ‘Application for a licence for a new motor vehicle & declaration for registration’.

This document describes the car as a Triumph TR8 Manual 2 valve sports coupe in Brooklands green. It was registered to BL Cars of Canley on 2nd Jan 1980, and signed by DF Hawks (vehicle admin).The original Reg document describes it as a Triumph 2 axle rigid body sports, and is registered to BL Cars again. This document is dated 9th Jan 1980. The engine number on the document is stated as 13E00139 with a capacity of 1998cc, but someone has struck through and written ‘should be CV15270 with a capacity of 3528cc. Obviously this is wrong – The engine no was correct but the capacity was wrong. The current V5 document describes the car as a Triumph Sports. All recent MOT’s describe the car as a TR8.

The Heritage certificate describes the car as a Triumph TR7 Coupe
