Work is continuing on our TVR Racecar. We’re replacing the shock absorbers with brand new replacements from GAZ. The other photos will be used as a reference for the vehicles re-assembly.

TVR Grantura Race Car Photos: For Reference

More images for internal use only. The car is awaiting a full restoration but we are frequently visiting the project to prepare and we are taking lots of photographs that we will save for future reference.

TVR Grantura Race Car Engine: For Reference

Although our 1962 TVR Grantura race car is in storage for a little while whilst we complete the work on some of our current projects, we have photographed the engine bay in its current position.

The reason being that we require images for cross-reference on another TVR Grantura project we are currently running.

Images as reference can often be hugely beneficial for any work being carried out hence why our website has over 30,000 images of our projects for others to view and comment on. Feel free to look around our website, if anything you find is remotely useful to you then that makes us very happy!

TVR Grantura Race Car

BEM 885 was registered on the 5th July 1962 but the chassis number indicates that it was built around May 1961.

The car has a lightweight, drilled chassis which is very interesting in itself.

In it’s early days, the car had been frequently raced and hill-climbed and has been very successful in competitive events. Showing 1st place in 1962 at the 7th Members Meeting at Oulton Park, it was then raced at Southport Speed Trials, Aintree and St Audries Bay Hill Climb. with drivers Arne Lambe, N.H. Barnes, WR Bennett and Geoff Taylor.

Over the years the car has been various colours. Originally finished in work-style colours of white with blue stripes. It has since been finished in silver and now with us in maroon.

We have received a images of the car in it’s racing days which is absolutely wonderful to see and thank you very much.

The car will be extensively restored here at Bridge Classic Cars and will once again come in white with blue graphics.
