TVR T350c – 4.0 A/C – TVR Development Car

 

A TVR T350c that is a unique car in that it is the development vehicle commissioned by Peter Wheeler that appeared on the 2002 motor show stand. You will also see a photo showing Peter Wheeler’s name written on the inside of the body trim.

 

There are several differences with this car compared to the final production car.  Originally the filler cap was in a different position, and although this was moved by the factory before it left them, you can see the shadow on the body where it once was.  The fuel flap handle is also different, it is in a cubby hole in the rear of the car.  There is no cutout on the rear panel below the hatch.  There are a few other differences, and of course, it’s a 4.0….

 

It was owned by TVR Engineering for the first three years of its life and had extensive servicing over that time. All recorded in the history.

 

The car was bought from TVR Engineering by a dealer and has had three further owners since TVR ownership. The last of those since 2010. In that time no expense has been spared in maintaining it.

 

The car has covered 78,500 miles but the the engine was rebuilt to 4.0 litre Red Rose spec at 56,000 miles at STR8SIX. It looks as though the car was always fitted with the 4.0 litre engine. (Good old TVR…).

 

The car has extensive but sympathetic upgrades including ceramic coated manifolds, Sagaris brakes, completely refurbished quilted leather interior (2016) including headlining, air conditioning, alloy radiator, uprated starter motor.

 

The car is in very good overall condition, it looks far better than many cars we see with a third of the mileage.  There is a lovely history file with many thousands of pounds of love and care detailed within.  Plus photos of the car on the motor show stand and the TVR Blackpool history.

 

In November 2020 the car went to TVR 101 and had over £4500 spent on it.

 

This included:

12,000 mile service and MOT
Fuel hoses replaced
Steering rack gaiters replaced
Fuel pump replaced
Fuel tank heat shield replaced
New alloy radiators inc A/C
New battery
Fuel tank removed and repaired due to a minor leak.

The chassis is in excellent condition, having been Dinitol treated from an early age.

 

Our prep is now well underway on the car, and we’ll be undertaking the following improvements:

New Bilstein Tuscan ‘S’ Shocks and T350 Eibach Springs all round
Full Geo set up
New tyres – Dunlop Sport Maxx
Refurbishment of the steering rack
Oil and Filter Service, coolant change and checkover, and set up of throttle pots etc. (…these have been rebushed in the recent history).
Redress chassis areas as required with protection to match.
Various other small jobs to bring it up to our standard.
40hrs in total spent on the cars mechanical preparation.

The car is now up in Leicestershire for a final detail before going onto its next owner.
