TVR Tuscan V6 - 1970 Modsports Championship Winning Car.

The car in question is a TVR Tuscan V6, first registered in Dec 1969, which is a perfectly viable road-registered and road-going car which, also boasts a wonderful history as a racecar and is of course completely at home as a track day car.

Approximately 30 years ago, CLM 99H ped a valve during a season of hillclimbing in the hands of its second owner, Jack Dilley of Hurley in Berkshire. The car was put back in its garage and the engine removed and taken apart. It then sat there forlornly (for 28 years), before It was offered to and purchased by Mr Jason Clegg.

He spent a couple of months deciding which route to follow with the car, before deciding that a sympathetic restoration was the best way forward. The body was removed and all mechanical parts were overhauled. The body & interior were left as original as possible - with various battle scars preserved and the patina of history evident!

At the end of that process, the specification was as follows:
Factory built Tuscan V6 Lightweight with modified body.
Original factory roll cage.
Ford 3.1 Litre Essex V6, rebuilt with parts, help & advice from Ric Wood.
Forged pistons, gas flowed heads, balanced bottom end, alloy timing wheel, baffled sump, roller rockers, triple downdraft Weber carbs.
Ceramic coated 3 into 1 manifolds with custom side exit system.
Alloy radiator & electric fan.
Rebuilt Capri 3 Litre close ratio gearbox.
Rebuilt 3.7:1 Powerlock diff.
Intrax adjustable dampers & springs.
8" Cooper F1 wheels at the front, 10" Pearce wheels at the rear.
Period style Michelin tyres all round.

The history file that came with the car was extensive, fascinating and effectively opened a window onto the world of motor racing 50, yes FIFTY, years ago.

As previously mentioned, the car was duly sold 3 years ago to a genuine TVR aficionado, who also collects historic Motorbikes. As you would expect, he kept the car in tip top form, using it on the road in appropriate conditions and on suitable track days at Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit. All these outings and associated work on the car were of course recorded.

And because the last owner recognised the importance of collecting as much of the history of the car, and of the motor racing scene "Back in the day", he has added much extra content to the car’s very full provenance records.

The documentation available includes:
A copy of the original factory build sheet dated 28th Nov 1969.
The car’s original green logbook (showing only 2 owners!).
A notebook with race specs & settings from 1974.
A letter from TVR.
The bill of sale from the first owner Dr Rod Longton to the second owner.
Various receipts & invoices.
Race programmes (some with this car on the cover).
Period photographs from various race meetings.
Various scrutineering passes (some with rodent damage!)
The car also features in various articles and TVR publications throughout the years.
