1974 TVR

Ford 302 V8 Conversion

House Project

This TVR project was purchased in partially-completed condition. The original Triumph 2500 cc inline 6-cylinder engine and 4-speed transmission has been replaced with a Ford 302 V8 engine from a mid-1980s Mustang and a Toploader 4-speed. As it sits, it runs and is lot drivable. However, it is still a long way from being roadworthy - or maybe trackworthy. It is more-or-less complete with the exception of bumpers, a dash (we have another M we can use to cut a template) and some minor trim pieces. It does have all the glass (including an extra rear plexiglass window) and a custom-made roll cage.

While we do intend to finish the conversion and build of this car, we are uncertain as to whether it will wind up as a street or possibly a track car. Given how busy we've been with client projects, it will be some time before we have a chance to get to this in-house project, so we'll have plenty of time to make up our minds.
