Wedge List / TR7 on TV show Detectorists
« Last post by Patrick Opsahl on January 16, 2018, 06:31:39 PM »
It looks to be a nice 1977 yellow coupe. It is driven by one of the main

characters and is seen in every episode.

We watch it on Acorn, all British shows on our Roku.

Hi All



I've had another look at it today as I was passing.  



VIN TPVDV8AT21nnnn, makes it anm8 if memory serves me  orrect.



No idea if its been on ebay, and the garage owner was out and the bird in the office didn't know what he was aking for it.  Holley seems likely, there is a manual choke knob fitted and it has Holley printed on it.

Hi all,

The car on EBay is not the same car that appeared in the auction some time

ago.  The auction vehicle was far superior and was fitted with Holley carb.

This one looks to be fairly std mechanically.

Leslie and others,



UKP18,000 seems high to those of us who have followed TR7 and TR8 prices for

many years - but to an auction house that sees a TR5 going for prices  up to

45,000 then they might think that as fewer TR8s were built

then it is logical for the faster, more comfortable car to be somewhere around

that value!



Brian

Planning to sell a TR8 when it reaches 45,000!

Hi all,

This is the same  car I mentioned a while ago which  was in the same auction

as a car my brother in law was selling. It then had a reserve of 18,000 GBPs.

It didnbt sell the first time round and it appears it has been re-listed but

no guideline of price this time round.  If I can find out I will let you know.

Even for a low mileage vgc vehicle B#18,000 or the $ equivalent (currently

1.33) is a bit strong.  If he could get it I would be tempted myself, my car

looks exactly like it.



Best wishes to all for a great driving 2018.

Wedge List / TR8 DHC for sale in East Yorks

If anyone in England is looking for a TR8 DHC I spotted one in a car

showroom today in Snaith, East Yorks.  It's a LHD import from the US,

gold paint, Golden Tan interior which from a quick look appears to be kn

very good condition,  on V reg plates so presumably a 1980

It's apparently been away to an auction where it didn't sell so its back

there and on sale again.  No idea of price but it looks a tidy car.  If

anyone should be seriously interested I can take a proper look at it for

you as its only 3/4 of a mile from me.

But they say to measure between the treads as 3b above the ground, and

subtract 2b.  I get 64b on my car doing that, and they say is should less

than or equal to 62b.  So it should work.



Ibm also kind of interested in this jack.  I would probably use the lift

points for the factory jack, after making holes in the rubber blocks to

accommodate the pin on the car.

Hi,

That's the problem, it will not fit easily. I measured only 157cm between
front and rear tire as shortest distance at half tire height, which is 61,8
inch. The lift is 62 inches folded down.
So it might just work as it's already raised a bit at half tire height, but
I'm not sure. That's why I asked if anyone has experience....

Regards, Remco

UK Address

I was within 1 mile of the UK base today!  Next time I pass I will try to

call in and see a unit in real life.  There is a medium one as well as the

small which might be better suited?

Unit 27 Caker Stream Road Mill Lane Industrial Estate Alton, Hampshire

GU342QA



It would still help to be used to working in a mine as there is only 20

inches of clearance!
