Up for sale is my toy. She started out as a stock TR7 and morphed into what she is today. Out came the troublesome 4 cylinder engine to be replaced with a Buick V-6 (231 cid 3.8l).
The stock transmission was replaced with a T5 5 speed from a Camaro and power goes through a Mustang GT rear end with 2.73 gears and limited slip. She sports 4 wheel disc brakes with the fronts being 4 piston Wilwood aluminum calipers and 11 drilled and vented rotors. The rears are from SSBC and uses 10.25 rotors. The master cylinder is a chromed GM unit and has a proportioning valve. Stainless steel brake lines are used when possible.
The suspension consists of KONI adjustable shocks, competition springs and poly bushings at all four corners.
She sits on 15 KONIG Lace wheels and KUHMO tires.
The four fenders as well as the front air dam are fiberglass.
She is painted GM White with a checkered flag wrap.
The dash has been replaced with VDO gauges. The stereo is a SONY with CD changer and USB.
As stated, she is a CA car and therefore must be smogged. While she always passes, the engine is basically stock with minor CA approved ignition. If CA politicians would get their heads on straight, she would be much more fun with just a set of headers and fuel injection. In the past two years, from Smog test to Smog test, she was driven just over 500 miles. She is not a daily driver, though she could be, and is driven mainly to car shows and club meetings. There, I'm off of my soap box. The mileage is an estimate.
Oh, yeah, she has air conditioning but I broke ff a fitting and as of now the a/c does not work.
She does Turn Heads and if I had a dollar for every time I was asked: What kind of car is it? I'd be a rich man!
She is fun to drive and is guaranteed to start a conversation.
The ? you ask? There is very little Triumph left in her!
