TVR Grantura. Ref 1Buyers receipt. Ref 1

TVR Grantura 62 was the car that showed up after the total disaster with Lotus 15 was over. We have now reached 1965. The TVR car was for sale at a Lotus Elite racing driver. He had a car shop at a cross over road to Karlavägen and his name was Harald Kronegård. The car was an English special type and looked funny but could drive well. Equipped with a BMC MGB 1800 cc engine and gearbox, and BMC rebuilt rear end with 2 drive shafts mounted in a VW type1 front suspension and such a one was also mounted in front. This meant that the movements of the wheel were straight up and down and the leaning was depending of the car. This was not so god for racing but was the highest fashion some years ago. It showed up that the bushings in the torsion system were worn out so I had to start changing them and make them fit the torsions axles. After this the car went much more steady. It was not any real club car. Time had moved forward according to racing with a sport car. I kept the car until 1966 when my famous Ferrari appeared. Perhaps I could say something good about the TVR, it was a mark that kept alive long time in England. My TVR was sold to a boy Ulf Carlkvist through Car Shop Nordberg. It was speedy time with my car buying at that turbulent times.
