Custom Triumph TR7
Absolutely stunning car! 1980 Triumph TR7 body, with a 231 Buick V6, 5-Speed Chevy Transmission, Chevy rear end, MKIII Body Kit, custom body, custom paint.
All body work was done professionally by Black River Customs, a high-end classic and custom car builder in Northern Michigan. The body was rock-solid, fully stripped, mounted to a rotisserie, soda-blasted and primed. Every flaw smoothed, welded, molded very professionally. The body kit was purchased in England and imported to fit this specific car. The kit was installed and then customized. Many months were spent perfecting this amazing car body. Every nut, bolt, spring, and washer are brand new. Most imported from England specifically for this car. No expense was spared. This bright yellow body is perfect, straight, and flawless in every way… with one minor exception. I put a small spec in the paint on one headlight bucket (see pictures), you probably wouldn’t see it if I didn’t show you.
The full under-side of the car was sprayed with bed-liner while on the rotisserie, as well as the inside of the trunk
The suspension includes new up-rated performance springs, new shocks, rebuilt brake calipers, new rotors, pads, new brake lines, etc. The steering rack is brand new from England, and all the suspension bushings are new. All suspension parts are up-rated for mild performance. The wheels and tires, including extra wheels are included with this sale, however they are nothing special. I intended to purchase some kind of wire wheels.
The engine has very few hours since full professional build. Includes mild cam and a Holly 600 cfm carb. New headers, custom designed for this engine/body configuration. New water pump, new gaskets, new wires, etc. A mild performance clutch was installed. I have a rebuilt, high capacity radiator and a performance fan.
The headlight motors are rebuilt with new parts from England, I have custom stainless covers for the rockers, the car body was customized to accept the custom chrome gas cap, new gas tank with new stainless and rubber mounts and new bolts.
The intention of this build is a comfortable, dependable, enjoyable car to drive. It was not built for high performance, but many performance parts are used. The bright yellow catches attention from everyone who has seen it. The paint is a multi-layer paint with a white base, transparent yellow, and clear-coat.
