The Coventry Climax engined TVR Grantura of Ian Burford is nearly ready to race. It is now mechanically sound so today we warmed it up and ran it on the rolling road to check everything out. The carburettors appear to be well setup with the correct mixtures. There are a few more jobs to finish off before the car is ready to race.
A very rare and very early TVR Grantura has arrived this week. The original Coventry Climax powered car needs some TLC and an up to date race preparation but once complete will offer the new owner a unique drive within a grid of 1950’s sports cars. The car has drum brakes all round but does feature fully independent suspension. Once properly setup the short wheel base should make for an agile racer that should punch above it’s weight. Watch this space for updates on it’s progress.
