1980 TR7 For Sale, $3,000 Posted: 2018-11-13
This is a 1980 Triumph TR7 in Poseidon green metallic. It is a matching numbers car. The car was bought as a project for my sons and I put together we have it at about 95% complete right now. All the parts are there it just needs to be made roadworthy. The engine runs, the brakes work and the car drives. It has a five speed transmission and three new tires. It would make a good finish a project for someone with moderate to limited mechanical skills. The hard part was done.
This car was manufactured in the Canley plant in England. It doesn't have the build quality problems that the earlier cars had. It does have air-conditioning but it is not connected. It will need a dryer for the air conditioning. New spark plugs, rotor and cap, water pump, oil pressure sending unit, carpet, upholstery, BT audio, 3 new tires and other various parts were purchased new to put on the vehicle. The valves were adjusted also. It runs with an electric fuel pump rather than the mechanical one. I'm in the process of putting an electric fan on it.
Two of the pictures show the lights working and the fan running to prove that it is up and running.
The car is located in Oxford Michigan.

Iguana, Clay Thompson's TR7 For Sale, $4,000 OBO Posted: 2018-10-27
For sale, Iguana, Clay Thompson's beloved TR7.
I've seen the car in person, interior rates a 10/10 for originality and near perfect attention to detail. Body is straight, I don't recall Clay ever telling us it had been in any fender benders. Paint is (I think) mostly original, I'd grade it a B+ I think. Engine bay is nice. Dual Weber setup, KMAC strut mounts and loads of other tweaks and mods to make the car work better.
I don't think Clay ever did anything major to the engine, no compression ratio bumps or UK pistons or anything like that. But he documented the heck out of the car in the old triumphtr7.com forum, I suspect you could look up stuff pretty easily. He was jclay and contributed and moderated that forum for years.
Family is asking $4k OBO.

1980 Triumph TR8, $8,500 Posted: 2018-10-15
Because of multiple projects, I have decided to sell my 1980 Triumph TR8. I have owned and driven this TR8 for over two years and I have enjoyed driving this car very much.
This car is a true factory TR8 as indicated by the V8 symbols in the VIN, location of the battery, and location of the radiator. VIN TPVDV8AT209637. Exterior color is Poseidon Green Metallic Code HAF. The Interior should be Plaid Tan code RAC, but was changed to a solid tan vinyl by a previous owner.
Mileage is 81,000 and I am asking $8500.00.
Pros: A good solid body. I was surprised at the rust free condition of this body, a little surface rust in small areas but no solid rust. It seems not to have been driven in any salt conditions. This would make an excellent starting point for a concours restoration.
Carburetors have been changed to SU HIF6’s, BAF upgraded needles and manual choke; K&N Air Filters which allowed the larger needle installed; New Petronix Electronic Distributor; New Fuel Sender; Gates Barricade ethanol resistant gas lines installed; 4 New 205/70R/13 “H” speed rated tires; New EZ On soft top; New seat suspension diaphragms; Rebuilt Brake Master Cylinder; LED Dash Lights; Floor insulation; New Delco Alternator Conversion; Falcon Stainless Exhaust; Removable Hard Top(does need repainted); New Boot Gas Struts
New Parts that came already installed with my purchase; New aftermarket vinyl interior parts installed; Electric external fuel pump; Rebuilt clutch Master Cylinder and New Slave cylinder; New Flexible Brake Hoses
Cons: The TR has paint scratches and nicks and a couple of small dents on the driver’s side.
The TR has A/C which is not working and I have not sorted through.
I want to emphasize that this TR8 is a nice driver and not a show car. Although I attended a couple of Cruises this summer and received a lot of positive comments on the car and its rarity.
It’s also lowered the usual 1”. Rimmer red springs. Stainless braided hoses.
It’s definitely not a perfect car. It’s original paint it’s got some dings, it sat in a garage for allot of years before I got it. The hood is a little dinged. Looks like at one point someone left tools on the plenum and closed the hood. I was always fine with how it looked, Ive always like making them work better.
I have all original parts to go back on eventually if need be. Though with the 4.0 heads the deck height is lower. So the original intake has been machined allot to make that work. I had to do the same with this newer 3.9l intake.
It also is an 1981 model year. Non A/C. I’m sure there is other stuff I’m missing.
