TVR Griffith 500. This Griff 500 was first registered on 30 Oct 1993 and, so far, has been enjoyed by 6 owners over 24 years. The exterior colour - "Secret Blue" - is attractive, but didn't really go with the original interior colours, which were uninspiring - and the trim needed attention anyway. So, Str8six spent quite some time carefully ing new leathers and carpeting, which would coordinate with the car's distinctive exterior. Hopefully we achieved a result which is both different and attractive? The hides were supplied by UK Hide (Autolux Antique Brown) and by Andrew Muirhead (Sateen Sahara). And the carpet is top quality 80% Wool Kensington Navy. We also re-trimmed the roof in "American Navy Blue" Mohair with a Beige interior lining, and it incorporates a brand new Vybak clear vision panel. All the trim-work was executed by Trim Unique and inevitably features Str8six’s "trade mark", straked door panels.

And so to the history of the car. B7VRX was driven at the rate of some 7,500 miles per year for the 8 years from 1993 until 2001 - by which time there were 60,306 miles on the clock. And then it covered a mere 7,546 miles over the next 16 years! The penultimate full and recorded service was carried out for the 4th owner in June 2003 at 63,186 miles. It was then MOT'd reasonably regularly until 2013 when the car went into hibernation! When the 6th owner (who bought the car in 2009) eventually brought the car to Str8six in March this year at 67,601 miles, he ran into an invoice of just over £5,000.

This work included a full 12,000 mile service, new engine mounts, dampers and springs, the entire inventory of front and rear wishbone and rear upright bushes, rear track adjusters, 4 new TVR Spec Toyo tyres etc.

So, without belabouring the point, this car is in really nice condition. It’s not concours, but it is a truly DRIVEABLE and extremely presentable "Pride and Joy" car. Like nearly ALL our sales cars, this car is owned by Str8six. And, although it had a 12,000 mile service carried out in March 2017, this will be re-visited and a full Geo Set up will be repeated, before handover to its next owner!

B7VRX will be supplied with Str8six's renowned "All the 12s" handover specification - i.e. Full 12,000 miles service revisited, 12 months MOT, TAX and 12 months/12,000 miles FULL WEAR AND TEAR WARRANTY covering parts and labour on the WHOLE CAR. It also has an inbuilt 12 volt trickle charger and it will come with a spare wheel in the boot.. Advert Date: 2017-10-01
