1981 All Texas DH PI TR8 For Sale, $17,500 Posted: 2020-1-8
1981 DH PI TR8, SATPV4586BA406330 (less than 800 manufactured), all Texas car.
I bought this car in 1998 through Classic & Unique Vehicles, Inc. in Round Rock TX and am the second registered owner. At the time of purchase, it showed 9,861 miles and currently has 40,350. The photos were taken in 2006. The additional 7,000 miles were added over the next thirteen years. I have continued to keep the inspection and registration current and have all of that paperwork. These documents will verify that only 332 miles have been added during the last four years and only 12 miles over the last two.
This TR8 is 95% original, including paint, and for anything not original such as carpet, radio, wheels, and exhaust, I have kept and stored the original items. Everything except the AC is in good working order and after the P-O, as a condition of sale, had replaced the compressor, accumulator and orifice tube, he was told that the expansion valve was bad. Since that part is underneath and/or behind the dash, I told him to forget about it and we renegotiated the sell price. I didn’t want the dash messed with so I removed the compressor belt and left it that way.
So why am I selling the car?? I have had my TR8 for 29 years and my wife and I have Immensely enjoyed it. It has been a fun ride and still looks, drives and performs well. Although still young at heart, these Texas summers are just too hot for us and now that I’m retired, I have other projects in the mill and I need the space in my garage. The clincher however, was when I took the cover off for the next drive to the inspection station and discovered the previous two years registration tags still on the seat. I realized that I had lost interest and that this car needed to go to someone who will drive and appreciate it.
If interested, send me a note at email@example.com or call me at 936-321-2425, leave a message on the recorder and I will call you back.

Incredible Original Low 6,900 Mile TR7 Convertible For Sale Posted: 2019-11-24
September 1981 TR7 VIN--SATPV4188BA408019
Originally my plan was to take this car with me when I bought it at the beginning of this year when I move to Mexico next month but I am thinking now that it might just be too difficult to get it into the country with all of the hoops that I have to jump through. So, if I can get some money out of it at least I'll be able to keep Tequila in stock!!
I bought this car with 5982 miles on it and it turned over to 6k on the way to the gas station to fill up for the long drive home to Richmond, CA. The original owner it appears bought this last year production, only year Fuel Injected Triumph TR7 Convertible as an investment to be squirreled away forever in Canada until he ran into financial difficulties a year or two later and sold it through a dealer in New York to this guy I bought some Morris Minor parts from in Morro Bay with only 583 miles on it. I think that this car has more miles on it shipping than it was ever driven!
Upon seeing this amazing time capsule in this guys driveway and having some history with these cars going back more than 30 years ago, I inquired if he might sell it and eventually I received a call a few weeks later that I could buy it. Getting the car home I dropped it straight off to my friend's British car garage to go through it top to bottom and prepare the car for the Yucatan heat! Almost $5k later and after carefully saving all of the original parts for posterity, this car drives better than new.
Upgraded the radiator with an extra row, aluminum racing radiator with auxiliary electric fan, lower temp thermostat, water pump, headers and sport exhaust system, new bushings, seals and gaskets where needed, tires balanced and alignment, and a complete top to bottom go through and so much more this little car is a pleasure to drive and now I have 6900 miles on it or so mostly to Concours events.
The car is all original except that which we have improved while saving all the original parts if someone needs to return the car to stock. It is Oporto Red Metallic (CMP) with a perfect one year only tan velour (AMG) interior. The original top with that cool headliner is beautiful as is the tonneau cover. The paint appears all original as well and any blemishes like minor dings and such I had planned on have a paint-less dent removal guy take care of but haven't gotten around to that yet. I even have all five of the original TR8 alloy rims with the original tires on them since the alloy wheels were upgraded to these cool 14" snowflake alloys and new tires.
This was I believe, the 3rd TR7 that this British car fanatic had owned so it came with a ton of spare parts that he had accumulated over the years of playing with cars from across the pond. He had had MGs, Healey's, Morris Minors and other Triumphs too. Being in his late 70s he was giving up his tinkering days since his health isn't what it used to be. So there are lots of consumable replacement parts included, like a new carpet set, a center armrest, lots of switch gear, knobs, handles, door handles with keys, fuel cap, mirrors, headlights, books, workshop manuals and catalogs...so much that it doesn't all fit in the trunk in fact. Not to mention the original exhaust system, catalytic converter, radiator and so on that I had upgraded.
I also have an extensive file of service history and other promotional info as well, including the original Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin.
It was estimated for my recent estate sale liquidation auction that I had conducted in September to bring around 17-22k but didn't meet reserve of 13k so am offering it to the community first in hopes of finding a worthy caretaker. Otherwise I will just bury myself in the Mexican Bureaucracy and figure out how to bring it into the Yucatan. Please send me a private message and I'd be happy to share my phone number or other pictures in order to assist the next owner in making the right decision to add this car to their collection.
Asking 12.9k now.
