Rather than sourcing new, we have spent some time tackling the original chrome work to see how well the chrome work can be polished and the results are fantastic…
1962 TVR Grantura
The colour has now been chosen. The original idea of a Chevrolet Laguna Blue has now changed to a lighter, brighter alternative and she looks stunning. The bonnet and doors have been treated in blue primer ready for top coat to be applied. And here she is; first pictures of our incredible 1962 TVR Grantura […]
Preparing the fibre-glass body of our 1962 TVR Grantura ready for repaint. The colour has not been 100% confirmed as yet but we are looking at the finish being in blue, similar to the Chevrolet Laguna Blue. With the workshops being closed and limited staff in it was a great opportunity for Ady and Tommy […]
More chrome and brightwork heading over to Tony at Wyatt Polishing for a re-chrome and polish. In our collection today we have parts for our Jensen 541R, Jaguar E-Type and TVR Griffith.
Brian is currently working on polishing the TVR’s expansion tank and cap. The results are amazing and no need for stripping and re-chroming on this one. The original ‘patina’ characteristics are present but will not look out of place against the newly refurbished body which is great news.
Brian spent a short while cleaning up the TVR dash and centre column to assess whether it would be acceptable enough to be refitted without re-covering. As much as it has brought life back into the tired looking parts we feel it is best to re-cover for maximum impact. Against the newly painted body shell […]
As you can see from previous posts, Ady is well on with rebuilding and upgrading our 1963 TVR Grantura engine. We are now in a position to bring in the body shell and to prepare for paint. The majority of the body shell has been restored a number of years ago, elsewhere, and the work […]
We are currently in the process of porting the cylinder heads of our 1962 TVR Grantura. Porting refers to the process of modifying the intake and exhaust ports to improve the quality and quantity of the air flow. Porting the heads provides the finely detailed attention required to bring the engine to the highest level […]
We have now carried out the unleaded conversion on our 1962 TVR Grantura. To carry out an unleaded conversion first we have stripped the cylinder head and checked for any imperfections wear. The existing seat have been bored out to remove. Our new inserts (above) have been fitted into the original seat with a 6 […]
Early 2019 we’ll be able to introduce a new project to the workshops, a classic TVR Grantura. It is coming in as a stalled restoration with the previous company no longer trading and leaving the customer with an unfinished project. For now we have the engine in for a full rebuild with the body shell […]
