Car History

A very beautiful rare car with only 654 made in England between 1972 - 1979.  American import started in 1977 - 1979 consuming a lot of the 3000M’s

We are selling this car on behalf of its current owner, who is very sad to see it go. “It was always a childhood dream of mine to own a TVR 3000M”  “ I suppose its been an achievement albeit not for a lifetime.”  Needless to say this has wanted for nothing and still in excellent restored condition.

A complete nut and bolt restoration was carried out and completed in 2009, a brief summery listed below.

Body off chassis recon with new outriggers by Venn.  Undersealed and waxoiled.  Body replaced with new rubber mounts (not felt).

Engine reconditioned and all stainless steel exhaust system including manifolds.  New cooling/heating hoses with recon heater valve and re-cored radiator.  All new electronic ignition system.

Gearbox and differential reconditioned by Venn.

New suspension parts to include bushes, wish bones, trunnions, ball joints, springs and dampers.

Reconditioned steering rack, track rod ends and new universal joints.

New brake discs, drums, pipes, split circuit master cylinder, rear wheel cylinders, front calliper pistons and seals.

New electrical wiring loom, air horns, electric fans, head, rear, side and indicator lights.

Interior trim all new except central console and dash surround.

Reconditioned door hinges, catches, window trims and fittings.

New two pack red paint to a very high standard.

New bumpers and sill plates.

Model History

As a higher-performance alternative to the 1600M and 2500M, TVR debuted the 3000M at the 1972 Earl's Court Motor Show.  It uses the 3.0 L Ford Essex V6 and cost £2278 in October 1972.  Produced for only one year between 1973 and 1974, the 3000ML was a special luxury version of the 3000M that included a wooden fascia, leather trim, Wilton carpets, sunroof, and high-backed seats of a style different than that found in the standard cars. A total of 654 naturally aspirated 3000Ms were built.  The early coupés weighed in at around 950 kg (2,094 lb).

In 1977, aware that supplies of the US-emissions-certified Triumph 2.5 L engine would soon be exhausted, TVR had contracted Californian company Olson Engineering, Inc. to design modifications to the Essex V6 such that it could be EPA-certified.  They were successful in this regard, and Essex-engined M Series cars were imported the following year.
