1980 Triumph TR8 for sale! Motorcar Classics is pleased to present this rare 1980 Triumph TR8 roadster featured in Dark Green with tan interior and black convertible top. Triumph introduced the TR8 in 1980, powered by the aluminum Buick/Oldsmobile/Pontiac designed 215CI V-8 that was manufactured by Rover and which powers numerous model Range Rovers, Morgan Plus 8s, and other British cars. It is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The TR8 cockpit is reasonably comfortable. Wider and more spacious than the TR4 series and TR6 cars. In its period, the ride, handling, braking and fuel economy were deemed excellent by Road & Track. Our car features AC and the engine has been upgraded with headers, Offenhsauser valve covers, Edelbrock intake manifold and 4-barrel carburetor. These are proven performance components that bring out the best of this popular V8. The car is quick and a delight to drive. In this months issue, Sports Car Market selected the TR8 as a car to buy now in the buy-sell-hold feature. Our car has mostly original paint, and original interior, and it is one of the nicest survivors we have seen of all the TR7 and TR8 models.
