TVR Grantura 1800S 1967

Model History

Following changes to the companies management TVR launched a revised Grantura model in 1964, the Grantura 1800S. The new car was really a revised version of the Grantura III featuring styling changes, a new engine and better weight distribution.

The 1800S used a 95bhp BMC B-series engine (the same unit found in the MGB) as its powerplant. The main change to the bodyshell was the cut-off "Manx Tail" rear end. This styling change resulted in the spare wheel being located above the boot floor, this meant that the wheels extra weight was no longer behind the rear axle.

In 1966 the Grantura 1800S was updated and renamed the Grantura 1800S IV. Main differences were confined to minor trim changes, however an attractive wood dash was a welcome addition. Production of the "IV" was to be short lived, it ended in 1967 with the arrival of the new Vixen.

John Thurner designed backbone chassis.

Double wishbone coil spring suspension.

The Grantura MKIII 1800S has the new 'Manx' tail body style introduced on the Griffith 400. Instead of the usual choice of engines TVR made the 1800cc MGB unit standard. A MKIV 1800S was introduced in 1966 with many detail improvements.


American Walnut veneered dashboard, still looking as new.

The photographs below show the car in 1993 outside David Gerald's having just returned from a retrim.


In very good shape with no signs of accident damage or repair.

The bonnet has been striped and sea shell blasted underneath to reduce weight and now in primmer.

Was running before removal.


The previous owners bought the car in a road worthy condition with a full MoT.  After driving it home they striped the car completely, with the vue to convert it to a racing car.  They abandoned this project when offered another more race advanced Grantura Mk III.

Here we have a very good original Grantura Mk4 1800S ready to be put back together either as a standard car as it was intended or as a historic racer.

Be quick as I may start the project myself, the road for me shall be racing.

It has a very large history file
