The 1980 Triumph TR8 is a V8 convertible, designed for an enjoyable driving experience. This TR8 model holds the potential to become a modern classic due to its limited production, with only about 3,400 units manufactured. The car boasts a brand-new fawn-colored cloth soft top, as well as refurbished seats and original alloys with well-maintained tires.

The body and paint is in good shape with notably good panel fit, and is overall rust free and accident free . While the paintwork does display minor dings and scrapes, they are not substantial enough to necessitate repainting. Mechanically, the TR8 performs well, demonstrating smooth shifting and effective braking. It encourages spirited driving and offers the enjoyment of the original 3.5-liter V8 Rover engine’s power. This car isn’t compliant with California smog regulations and must be sold out of state. The vehicle features an Edelbrock carburetor on its original V8 engine, which eliminates smog equipment.

The interior showcases well-preserved door panels and reconditioned seats that appear nearly new. The dashboard maintains a satisfactory condition, while a sport steering wheel adds a touch of character. The original seat belts remain in good shape.

This TR8, the final model produced before the company’s 1980 receivership, is positioned to become a sought-after classic. The speedometer shows 32,111 miles, and the car’s appearance, from its bumpers to paintwork, suggests diligent upkeep. The engine compartment houses a 215 aluminum V8 engine with an Edelbrock carburetor, producing around 150 to 170 horsepower.

The 1980 TR8 V8 Convertible represents a notable value, with its powerful V8 engine, five-speed transmission, and distinct design. Its gold exterior, fawn-colored top, and tan interior create a unique visual appeal. Given its limited production, V8 powertrain, and performance-oriented attributes, this TR8 stands poised to gain collector’s interest.
