1976 TVR 1600M
Offered by Brightwells | August 2023
TVR replaced the Vixen and Tuscan with their M Series line of cars beginning in 1972. The first model launched was this, the 1600M. The cars rode on a steel backbone chassis, and every M Series car shared pretty much identical fiberglass bodywork.
The 1600M drew power from a 1.6-liter Ford Kent inline-four sourced from the Ford Capri. It made 86 horsepower, which was enough for the car to attain 105 mph. TVR axed the 1600M after a year of production, but brought it back in 1975, and it continued on until 1977.
Just 148 were produced, and about half are thought to survive. This one was re-done in the 1990s and was recently returned to roadworthiness. It now has an estimate of $18,000-$21,000. Click here for more info.
