Classic Car Auctions says:

A beautifully presented TVR Taimar...
The distinctive crackle from the stainless steel exhausts is one of the first things that grab your attention with this superb TVR. It's obviously had a lot of money lavished on it over the years, more recently on a new coat of paint, however, the mechanical aspects have not been overlooked either as the engine has had a full rebuild along with the suspension to make it drive as well as it looks.
There is a good amount of history with the car, going back some years, with a number of invoices and receipts offering peace of mind to a new owner. Internally the car has worn well and the cabin is in good order and a great place to be with a sporty feel.The tidy engine bay offers further reassurance.
TVRs from this era have a ready following and this great British Bull Dog is seeking a new master.
