1980 Triumph TR8 with 44,000 miles on it which I believe to be true. No Rust and was a California sold vehicle. I purchased it from a great Sports Car shop in San Luis Obispo.It didn't run and as the pictures show it needs Complete body and paint- interior and convertible top. All parts were purchased from either Victoria British- The Wedge Shop or Moss Motors.
It now is a running and driving vehicle, below is a list of repairs done by myself or a shop in Utah.
