Your Projects: A TVR That Found Its Owner, Not the Other Way Around

The story behind forum user Stu Lasswell's 1974 TVR 2500M might sound a little too familiar for some of us: "I wasn't really looking for one. I have enough projects. This is a car that just sort of found me."

$900 later, Stu Lasswell was now the owner of a stripped-out TVR, save for some interior bits and an engine under the hood.

Since starting the thread, body, engine and frame (which, we might add, looked to be held together with an alarming number of zip-ties) have been separated from one another to make the restoration project easier.

As well, the frame has been completely sandblasted and sent to a welding shop to repair multiple rust issues.

Geez, you make it sound like the frame was held together with zip-ties! Actually just the wiring harnesses and brake/fuel lines were strapped to the tube frame... and they held together for over 45 years, so I can't complain. TVR frames are really well designed and solidly built.
