Venus TVR trap

Classic Cars (UK) - - Month In Cars -

‘Bring a strim­mer’ is not a com­monly seen line in small ads, but it made per­fect sense in the list­ing for this TVR 3000M. The ven­dors, Mr and Mrs Mac­tay­lor, de­cided that its restora­tion was un­likely to pro­ceed after 15 years of in­ac­tiv­ity in their gar­den in Brighton. It’s a 1976 ex­am­ple of the Es­sex V6-pow­ered coupé and will hope­fully be re­stored – the sale price of £2650 sug­gests it’s too valu­able to break. We hope the buyer fol­lowed the Mac­tay­lors’ ad­vice in the list­ing, ‘Buyer must col­lect and have own equip­ment to do so (eg flatbed with winch and a strim­mer). Car is a bit over­grown.’

Mrs Mac­tay­lor fi­nally won the 15-year ar­gu­ment
