TVR Vixen S1 The Very Last One


Light Grey leather interior

Car History

Very Rare, collectable & Great Investment 1968 Vixen S1 Short Wheel Base British Sports Car

This is the very last Vixen S1 chassis number VX 233F to be built out of a total of only 117.  There are only 19 on the register including this one. These were built between August 1967 and July 1968.

This car is a time-warp being all original (including the chassis that needs little attention to the out-riggers).  The only modifications is the uprated engine by OSELLI in Oxford, England and the later Vixen S2 aluminium wheels.

The car, cherished by one owner for 17 years, last taxed and driven in 2000/2001, then in 2002 dry stored as part of a private collection in Germany where it has been for the last 9 years.  We have the original build specification and order sheet, original green registration book with all registered keepers noted, to the last German collector.

Due to the length of storage we have recommissioned the engine, replacing radiator, expansion tank and water hoses.  The engine runs through the rev range pulling well through the gears. It has new brake callipers, pads, hoses and new tyres.

The TVR is in a fantastic original condition with only 48,864 miles believed to be correct.  It is a car that requires light restoration or a complete rebuild thats decision is up to you, the new owner.

Model History

Vixen S1 in the Saint TV Series 1962-1969


When launched in 1967, the Vixen was effectively a Grantura 1800S with a 1599cc engine from the Ford Cortina GT. Even though the 'Vixen' designation was introduced to signify the change of engine, to satisfy demand a few early cars were built with MGB power. The only external difference between the Grantura and Vixen S1 was a larger bonnet vent. In 1968 the Vixen S2 was introduced. Mechanically unchanged, the longer wheelbase (7ft 6in) chassis from the Tuscan V8 SE was used. The body was almost identical to the LWB Tuscan body, with longer doors, and Cortina Mk2 tail lamps replaced the round Mk1 lamps. The bonnet had a long bulge running from front to rear, which has subsequently become known as the 'sausage' bonnet. Required to clear emissions equipment for the US market but unpopular with British buyers, the 'sausage' was replaced by the Tuscan bonnet.
