1962 TVR Grantura: Windows and Seals are fitted

The rear clear, lightweight plastic window has now been refitted to the car.

The window was in a severely damaged state. However, Tom has been able to polish up the rear window, ready for it to be installed into the car once more.

Next on the Grantura is making the windscreen fluid reservoir and plumbing that into the vehicle.

1962 TVR Grantura Door Cards

In our trim shop, Donna has completely rebuilt the TVR’s door cards using the existing door cards as a template. The contrasting blue body colour against the vivid red interior will look truly stunning when complete on this fabulous TVR.

Fitting the TVR Grantura windows

Tamas has been working on the window mechanisms of our 1962 TVR Grantura this week. The frames are now in position and he is now concentrating his efforts on improving the movement of the mechanism as it seems unnecessarily tight to operate.

Re-producing the TVR Grantura Door Cards

Using the existing door cards we have replicated the design, including the stunning pocket concept, to create brand new door cards for our 1962 TVR Grantura. Finished in Poppy Red.

TVR Grantura Interior Re-Design

With a very limited amount of existing interior to go by we have had to design and manufacture the full interior set for our 1962 TVR Grantura.

Originally, the carpets would not have been edged but we chose to improve where we could and fitted out our carpet set with new colour coded edging.

The door cards have been re-manufactured using a rough template taken from the original door cards.

Designing the TVR Door Cards

Donna is currently working on designing a new pattern for our 1962 TVR Grantura door cards. She is using the existing material to help with the design.

The door cards will be finished in the same colour as the new seats that have been made.

Meanwhile, the seats are almost complete.

TVR Grantura Interior Trim

Work continues on the TVR Grantura interior rebuild. Donna is working on recovering the seats with the Poppy leather and has manufactured the new piping.

Fitting the new TVR Grantura Loom

The newly trimmed dash, complete with polished dials, is in position which means the electrics can now be wired up.

Thank you, as always, to the guys and girls at Autosparks for manufacturing the rare super rare wiring harness for our TVR.

Running our TVR engine

Running up our 1962 TVR Engine after rebuild.

Prior to Ady rebuilding the engine, it had been left in bits for many years with the main block being buried in the garden. This was a big engine rebuild but very satisfying when completed and running…

TVR: Refit, Interior, Dash

Work is progressing well on our 1962 TVR Grantura as we continue to fit up the exterior, at the same time working on the full interior re-trim. The dash is complete and ready to fit before we look to wire up the entire car.

Chroming various parts

Here we have bright work from our TVR Grantura, Jensens 541R’s and Jaguar E-Type.

TVR Grantura: Bringing back to life!

Images have emerged of our 1962 TVR Grantura in dis-repair some years ago.

As much as it is not nice to see a wonderful classic looking so sad it is still lovely to find images like this.

Building up the TVR Grantura dash

Donna has now completed the re-trim of the dash in Poppy Red leather. The dash has been handed back to Brian to reinstate the refurbished dials.

Polishing some of the TVR Grantura parts

Working on cleaning and polishing our TVR parts ready for the rebuild. The warning lights, ignition and hinges have all been polished now and ready for refit.

The original badges have also had the polishing treatment.
