1980 Triumph TR8

Charma and I bought this car twelve years ago with intentions of making a Triumph hotrod. Other car projects have taken priority and the 8 has languished in storage. The odometer shows 63,000 miles, which I believe to be true mileage. It is equipped with headers, but is otherwise stock.

The car had ugly aftermarket gold wheels when we bought it. I purchased four correct TR8 wheels on Ebay (for $300.00). It has the correct spare wheel in the trunk. Recently, I had the four wheels stripped, sealed and powder-coated (at Wheel Medic in Columbus, Ohio), which cost $450.00. I recently bought new Khumo radial tires from Tire Rack, which cost $260.00 and another $60.00 to have them installed.

There is some minor rust with the driver’s door being the worst. Also, there is a small amount of bubbling at the top of the right rear fender. I bought a new Roadster Factory door skin which is still in the box and will go with the car.

Also, I have a new Holley four-barrel carb which I was going to install to replace the stock carbs. I purchased a correct Buick intake manifold with the thermostat housing and valley gasket on Ebay for $100.00 (which will be needed to mount the Holley carb.)

I have the following spares which will go with the car as well: 5-speed transmission, extra differential/axle, extra doors and trunk (all from a 1979 TR7), (2) NOS headlight mechanisms with motors, (3) rear turn signal/brake lights, (2) new window cranks, NOS cam bearing set, manual choke lever and cable, (1) aluminum valve cover, new Eastwood coil spring strut tool and a car cover.

We are asking $6,000.00 for everything. If interested, please call John Huddy at (614) 204-0300 or e-mail me at

The new BRITSPEED accelerator shaft bushing kit for TR250 and TR6 cars makes the replacement of tired and worn nylon accelerator shaft bushings a breeze and will deliver the added advantages of long-lasting wear and positive throttle positioning.

Bob DeShane of Little Britain Motor Company developed the innovative new approach when confronted with yet another customer’s flopping TR6 accelerator shaft.  He said: “After forty odd years of swearing that I’ll never do another of these jobs, I said ‘yes’ again and then I kicked myself for it, but I realized that I likely wasn’t the only guy in the world that felt the same way.  I needed to find a better solution and chuck those standard replacement parts in the bin. So, it was up to me to do something about it… and I did.  Now, I am offering it to Triumph owners.”

The experience of replacing TR250 and TR6 accelerator shaft bushings with those standard nylon bearing offerings is one of the most frustrating, curse-inducing repair procedures ever created.  It will fray your nerves and your mouth will utter things that would make your mother shudder.  The job is just plain difficult and almost impossible. Often the result is ruined parts, scratched paint and bleeding fingers.  In fact, the whole exercise is a monumental waste of your time. If you dare take it to your friendly repair shop to waste their time, it will be accompanied with a sizeable repair bill …just for spite.
Curse no longer!  This new approach is a walk in the park and inexpensive too.  Your right foot will love it.

Available now for only $19.95.
