TVR Griffith 500 - 1999 - “Pearl Blue Jewel”
For sale at £26,000

This is a very handsome Griff 500 in lovely and useable condition. T495 RBP was in the possession of its most recent of 5 owners for the last 6 years. The car has been cared for by Str8six throughout that period.

And, right at the outset - to save you hunting - this Griff has power assisted steering!. This means it should have the approval of the fair sex! All good armament for that “significant discussion”.

The car is finished in deep Blue Pearl with the bodywork in very nice condition. The vehicle’s cockpit is fully trimmed in mushroom complemented by dark blue carpeting bound in mushroom. The dash top has a mushroom upper surface and the dashboard fascia itself is walnut veneered. The instruments are white faced with Leven aluminium bezels and there are Leven aluminium control buttons and air vent surrounds. Final touches include Leven polished metal sill kickplates. This Griffith is in confidence-inspiring condition and is clearly a collectable classic.

First registered in July 1999, this car has had 5 owners in 20 years, and has covered an average of only 2,670 miles per year. The engine is a 5.0 litre V8, which is standard internally with no upgrades. TVR quoted this power unit as developing 340 bhp and 350 lb ft of torque - and it is claimed to be good for 0-60 mph in 4.1 secs, with a top speed of 169 mph. The gearbox is the standard, very durable Borg Warner T5 and power transfer is via a Hydratrak limited slip differential.

The car’s ICE system is the original Pioneer KEH-P3630R with cassette player and RDS tuner (The handbook is present !). Air conditioning is not fitted. But this is a convertible (!) and it comes with 2 roof options.

There is a standard, one piece Targa panel - and there is also a 2-piece “S&D” Split targa, which is much easier to store in the boot when touring the UK or Europe.

The whole car is in very fine condition for its age and mileage and it is technically right up to the mark. Over the last 6 years the car has been cared for by Str8six. We have serviced the car and we have fitted a new clutch slave cylinder; rocker cover, sump and inlet manifiold gaskets; under bonnet and tank to pump fuel pipes; upper rear wishbone bushes; new lambda sensors; and stainless braided brake hoses. We have also kept the chassis outriggers cleaned and Dinitrol treated.

The car has a well stamped service record and, almost all service stamps are supported by service invoice papers. Every MOT certificate since 2005 is available.

The car will be supplied with Str8six's renowned
"All the 12s" handover specification - i.e. Full 12,000 miles service completed, 12 months MOT and 12 months/12,000 miles WARRANTY covering PARTS and LABOUR, with an inbuilt 12 volt trickle charger. The car will be taxed for 12 months.

Overall mileage - 53,435
