Model Identification

The first dozen or so Vixen Series 1's were in fact 1800S mk. IVs using MGB engines and will be ignored for the purposes of this handbook. It must be remembered that the TVR marque is one which has recieved enthusiastic modification by both its manufacturer and its owners. Some vehicles were supplied as rolling chassis and the engines fitted and subsequent modifications lead to confusion as to indentifying your model. Bonnets must be ignored for identification purposes as they are often replaced by those of later models due to their vulnerability. Some Series 1s were supplied with LWB Tuscan bonnets as a factory option. Should any confusion still exist and your vehicle registration document not mention model type, reference should be made to the model registrar of the TVR Car Club Ltd.
