1980 Triumph TR8 


Because of multiple projects, I have decided to sell my 1980 Triumph TR8.  I have owned and driven this TR8 for over two years and I have enjoyed driving this car very much.

This car is a true factory TR8 as indicated by the V8 symbols in the VIN, location of the battery, and location of the radiator.  I am willing to submit the VIN number to any serious buyer. Exterior color is Poseidon Green Metallic and Interior is a solid Tan vinyl.


Mileage is 81,000 and I am asking $8500.00.



A good solid body.  I was surprised at the rust free condition of this body a little surface rust in a few areas, but no solid rust.  It seems not to have been driven in any salt conditions. This would make an excellent starting point for a concours restoration.

Carburetors have been changed to SU HIF6’s, BAF upgraded needles and manual choke; K&N Air Filters which allowed the larger needle installed; New Petronix Electronic Distributor; New Fuel Sender; Gates Barricade ethanol resistant gas lines installed; 4 New 205/70R/13 “H” speed rated tires; New EZ On soft top; New seat suspension diaphragms; Rebuilt Brake Master Cylinder; LED Dash Lights; Floor insulation; New Delco Alternator Conversion; Falcon Stainless Exhaust; Removable Hard Top (needs repainted); New Boot Gas Struts


New Parts that came already installed with my purchase;

            New vinyl interior parts installed; Electric external fuel pump; Rebuilt clutch Master Cylinder and New Slave cylinder; New Flexible Brake Hoses



            The TR8 has paint scratches and nicks and a couple of small dents on the drivers door.

            The TR8 has A/C which is not working and I have not sorted through.


I want to emphasize that this TR8 is a nice driver and not a show car.  Although I attended a couple of Cruises this summer and received a lot of positive comments on the car and its rarity.


My contact information is Cell 724-977-0938 and car is located in Northwestern PA. Pictures are available.

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.
