SE5 for sale £8500!

Tr7 V8

Not relevant, but I had a 5 speed TR7, no overdrive option. Engine was sold to Saab who considerably developed it. Always thought the Sprint engine would be a nice option (although the V8 is excellent). Handling a bit twitchy with the short wheelbase. Needed firming up and better bushes

I would like to also thank Peter and his wife for their hard work over the weekend. Much appreciated.
