TVR Car Company


Founded by Trevor Wilkinson and Jack Pickard, going from the manufacture of one-off specials to series production models from 1953. The earliest examples used Austin mechanicals, but as the company became more and more successful, larger powerplants from other manufacturers were used.

1978 - 1979
TVR resisted the temptation to build an open top car for so many years, many believed such a beast would never exist. But that changed in 1978 when the Blackpool (UK) based company introduced their long awaited convertible, based on the successful Taimar / 3000M model, sharing the rolling chassis, engine and mechanical components.
