I grew up in Long Island and would always drool over them in the British Leyland showroom on Long Island back in 69 or so ( age 14). Look for earlier (not later) ....I seem to recall the 69,70,71 era is the best as the later suffered from emissions strangulation. Stay away from the rubber bumpers as this was done to improve crash worthyness and they added weight and raised the suspension to help also improve crashworthyness ( at the expense of handling) Yes the electric overdrive ( Norman De Laycock?)( as are other Lucas elctronics ) are problematic. They were gone by 76 and a remember a tinge of melancoly when I read that. A good looking ,good sounding ,masculine brit roadster somewhat like the last of the Austin Healey 3000's ( another beauty that was gone by 67).

that's correct .It is a rare TR8 roadster with the 3.5 liter V8.
