I Finally Bought A TR7

Recommended Posts

Around three years after I had originally planned to, I finally bought myself a TR7 on Sunday evening.

I will post more extensive photographs soon, but only have a couple of when it arrived on Tuesday. I have been informed by the seller that it had been stored for a while before recently being recommissioned. I've been provided with an extensive folder full of receipts for parts and work which has been carried out to the car, from the early 90s onwards, and a few photos of it in magazine/paper features (which I shall scan for your viewing pleasure!).

I'm currently busy attempting to buy a new house at the moment, so it looks like I might not manage to get it out much before it's time for it's Winter slumber. I am a little upset at the timing, but the car was an ideal opportunity that I did not want to miss out on. It is requiring some minor fixes on the paintwork, so I will get cracking on that and the other minor work that needs to be done.

Evening all,

Thanks for the kind words. As promised, here are some more pics.

I think it is going to take a while to get used to no power steering. Just moving it out and back into the garage was tough. We have noticed that the reverse lights don't stay on when the lever is at it's "resting" place, but do if I push and hold the lever slightly up to the left. Suspect there is a loose connection somewhere and hopefully there will be an easy enough fix.
