Imagine driving fewer than a thousand miles a year. Of course, you probably wouldn’t have much of a social life (without public transport, anyhow), but perhaps your car would look as well-preserved as this 1985 TVR 280i, whose paint is ninety percent original. In the past twenty-nine years, it’s only covered 21,000 miles.
However, it’s had a little help staying in shape. The interior and the convertible top–which can be closed, opened or transformed into a targa structure by removing a hard roof panel–are new. And while the undercarriage may not be new, it is rust-free and has its original powder-coating. And out back, the factory Jaguar rear end with inboard rear disc brakes still have their original pads.
A four-speed manual transmission is connected to a fuel-injected 2.8-liter German Ford V6. According to the seller, “The car does not leak and the engine is smooth and runs well.”
