Car History

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

This is the very rare Vixen S1 this being the 27th out of only 105 built.  There are only 19 on the register. These were built between August 1967 and July 1968.

This car is a time-warp being all original (including the chassis with replaced out-riggers side and rear).  The only modifications is the uprated engine and 6” Tuscan/Cobra wire wheels.

The TVR is in a original condition with MoT, taxed and drivable therefore considered a rolling/drivable restoration project.  It is a car that requires light restoration or a complete rebuild thats decision is up to you.  The chassis is good, the body needs a patch of fibre glass on the bonnet and a complete respray.  The interior needs new carpets and the new door card (supplied) fitted.  The seats are original with the drivers seat showing signs of wear only on the entrance side.

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.
