body kit!

I expect this TR7 turns a lot of heads!

TR7 roadsters were relatively rare compared to TR7 coupes (~1 of 5), and now they're all scarce. This TR7's paintjob reminds me of the camouflage OEM's put on prototypes to obscure body features. In fact, you can hardly see the characteristic cut of the TR7's door panel. In combination with handsome Huffaker racecar bodywork, I bet very few people recognize this car as a Triumph TR7 when it passes them. And with a 3.8L V6, it passes...

I bet most folks have no idea what it is. Looks like John did a great job.

Clan,It has a striking resemblance to my race car, excepting the roof and wheel/tire combo. The "sound" is what keeps me around, nothing like a hot rodded RV8. Onward, roverman.
