Project car. In 1986 my growing family out grew my 1974 TR-6. I parked it in the driveway thinking I would drive it when they left home. Didn’t happen and now my TR6 needs a new home. Original owner, California car. Complete as it came from the factory including factory installed overdrive (rag top and tires are not original). 131,000 miles. It’s been parked and covered since 1986. Was driven daily and in perfect running order the day it was parked. Car is in Modesto.

$3,000 or make offer.

My car was purchased in 1987 and currently has approximately 13,500(113,500) miles on the odometer. It has always lived in a garage. The car has a roll bar and was set up by Bondurant for the previous owner but has never been raced. With the exception of a modern ignition the carbureted engine is as it left the factory. The soft top, seat covers, alternator, and battery have seen less than 1000 miles. High-end radio fitted. Shop manuals, car cover, many spares, and original radio included. Car is located at Sausalito, CA.

> "1959 Triumph TR3A for restoration. Classic British sports car.

The chassis has been sandblasted and repainted with all bushings replaced. All body panels and tub have been stripped and repaired as necessary. New floors, sills and battery box. The radiator has been re-cored, and a safety roll bar fitted. Since the car has been sitting for many years, all panels are now covered with surface rust and will need stripping again. These cars are easy to work on for anyone with a modicum of mechanical ability.
The Car should be 90% complete with all major components. Anything missing can be bought from one of the many British car parts suppliers.

$5000 cash. Needs trailering."

Triumph TR7 Spider 1980 Special Edition Fuel Injected Convertible VIN TPZDJ8AA401617

This TR7 is located in Newcastle, CA 95658 (near Sacramento).

Clean title, registered to September 2022 with new California smog certificate. Speedometer shows 80K miles.

The TR7 Spider Special Edition is often considered the most collectible TR7 model and the fuel injected cars are the rarest of these cars; just 609 were built for the California market. They were fitted with a Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection system to meet California’s strict smog regulations for 1980.

Spider Special Edition features on this car:
- Build date July 1980
- 5 speed transmission
- Air Conditioning (complete but not charged; electric fans do operate)
- Maraschino Black paint (no Spider reflective red decals or stripes)
- Leather steering wheel (leather in worn condition)
- Original Grey Stripe Spider seats (some fabric tears, maybe repairable) under seat covers

Several modifications have been made:
- A removable SnugTop hardtop with glass/plexiglass rear window is installed. It is in excellent condition and is fitted with an operable glass sunroof. The convertible roof frame has been removed and is not included.
- A padded rollbar is installed
- Fiberglass wheel arch flairs at front and back plus side skirts
- Rear spoiler and front air dam have been added
- American Eagle alloy wheels (with correct 3-¾” bolt patterns) fitted with Dunlop 205/60R13 tires. The spare wheel is an original Spider alloy wheel. All tires are old and should be replaced
- A replacement black carpet in good condition
- Electric window mechanisms with switches in factory correct locations on center console
- A modern radio/CD player has been fitted; aftermarket loudspeakers are fitted to the doors
- The factory Delco electronic distributor and coil have been replaced with a Lucas electronic distributor plus barrel coil (these replacement units have correct timing and retard/advance characteristics)

Recent restoration work:
- New battery and battery connectors
- New fuel hoses and filter at fuel pump assembly
- New air hoses between plenum and inlet manifold
- Oil and filter change
- Exhaust muffler repair

The engine starts and runs well and major systems are in working condition:
- Transmission, brakes, clutch, steering, suspension all operate
- Headlights pop-up and down correctly; rear, brake and side lights work
- Most instruments work (Speedometer, Tachometer, Voltmeter, Temperature Gauge, Warning lights) and radio/CD player operable

Areas needing attention:
- The exterior paint is in poor condition, with oxidation and cracking
- Some minor surface rust on the underside; no major body panel rust observed
- Tie rod end joint boots are torn
- Bottom of engine and transmission are oily; front engine main seal has leaked
- Indicators, horn, fuel gauge and clock do not work
- Starter motor fails to engage occasionally
- Tires are old and should be replaced

Above is seller’s best description of condition for information only; car is sold ‘As-Is’.


Club members and TR drivers, the time has come. I’m 75 and with a bad back. I had been driving TR3s since 1965. I have had many TRs and lots of fun. What is left are my two best TRs, a ’59 (white), and a ’60 (red). I last showed them in Sacramento in 2018 and Triumphest. You may have seen them at Dixon one year. I showed at Dixon for many years. Both cars are in TR3B configuration. Big engine and O.D. I have plenty of spares and misc. I would prefer to sell to one good home. I’m thinking $50K for the package. More pictures on request. These two cars are not perfect, but they are really good. Private parties only. Reasonable offers will be considered. dlbright@earthlink.net

1980 TR7 Spider Special Edition

This Spider is one of just 648 Solihull factory Spider Special Edition fuel injected cars, equipped with a Bosch fuel injection system for the CA market.
built Aug 1980
I have owned this TR7 since 1989. It is currently registered in California and has a current smog certificate, last smog test July 2017. It had steel wheels when I bought it and I do not have the alloy wheels. In the mid 90s I replaced all the rubber bushings with polyurethane and replaced the springs on all four corners. In 2007 the engine was rebuilt and a new engine block was installed with new pistons, rings, bearings, and crankshaft.
Last year I replaced the fuel injectors and installed a new gear reduction starter. Other relatively new bits are brake pads and shoes, muffler, and steering rack
The car is sound. It needs a new top. The seats have covers on them. There is a small area of superficial rust on the right rear quarter panel. It needs typical minor body work and a paint job would be nice.
It has been very reliable for me over the years.
I have a number of spare parts of various descriptions.
For sale for $4600
