Could Probably Start: 1985 TVR 280i

You know you’ve got your work cut out for yourself when someone writes in a craigslist advert; could probably start if I knew anything about fuel injection…Too much of a project for me. But to add insult to injury, this next car is a TVR 280i Tasmin, which sounds like it’ll never run again, but the 280i used a Ford Cologne V6 with Bosch fuel injection, so it shouldn’t be that hard to get back on the road. Find this 1985 TVR 280i offered for $1800 in Ocean Township, NJ via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
