TVR Griffith 500 - Striking Viper!
For sale at £28,000

This is a very handsome Griff 500 in lovely, but useable condition with reasonably low mileage. T603 KLH was in the possession of its last owner for 12 years!

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! And indeed, the second owner was a lady!

The car is finished in Viper GTS Blue with all paintwork in very good condition. The vehicle’s cockpit is fully trimmed in two shades of light and medium grey complemented by dark blue carpeting bound in grey. The dash top has a medium grey upper surface (so no reflections in the screen), and the dashboard fascia itself is walnut veneered. The instruments are white faced with Leven aluminium bezels and there are Leven aluminium control buttons. Final touches include Leven polished metal sill kickplates. This Griffith is in confidence-inspiring condition and is clearly a collectable Classic!

First registered in April 1999, this car has had 5 owners in 18 years, and has covered an average of only 2,300 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 340bhp and 350lb 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 DEH-1320 CD RDS Receiver unit with a one slot CD facility in the head unit playing through Pioneer door and JBL parcel shelf speakers. Air conditioning is not fitted.

The whole car is in lovely condition for its age and mileage and It is technically right up to the mark. Over the last 3 years the car has been cared for by Str8six. We have serviced the car and we have addressed driveshaft gaiters, PAS hoses, wishbone bushes, the diff pinion seal, manifold and rocker gaskets, under vehicle fuel pipes. We have also cleaned up the chassis outriggers and Dinitrol treated them.

The car has a well stamped service record and, following its sale to the second owner, all relevant invoices and other period documents have been retained. Every MOT certificate is available.

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