This is a freaking awesome looking car. Good luck to you and your dad on the restoration of your TVR. :)

TVRs are rather rare in the States, aren't they?

Yes they are very rare, especially during these years 1965-67. Our car was found next to a garage, and the owner couldnt remember what his father called it before he passed away. He said it was a T.. something. $350 bucks later it was on the truck to home. It didnt have an engine in it but a set of rusty 302 Ford headers were.

When they came out it 65 it was quicker than the 289 Cobra from 0-60. If you wanna see more of them just search through google <TVR Griffith 400>. oh, and ours was and will be teal.
