‘Very few TR7s are now stan­dard’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Liv­ing With Clas­sics -

‘Very few TR7s are now stan­dard; most have had at least some mi­nor mod­i­fi­ca­tions such as bet­ter air fil­ters, ex­haust and a con­ver­sion to elec­tronic ig­ni­tion (the fac­tory-fit AC Delco points are a night­mare to main­tain due to ac­cess). Quite a few Sprint-en­gined TR7s have been built in re­cent years but V8 con­ver­sions are still pop­u­lar. You can build one of th­ese from just £3000 so for some cheap track day fun, or as a fast road car, a TR7 V8 rep­re­sents in­cred­i­ble value.’
