In February 2015 (Dave The Trimmer) re carpeted the whole interior matching the original dark blue with magnolia piping along with the fitment of a new dark blue roof.

In my opinion this Griffith has been properly maintained and cared for all its life which has given previous owners immense pleasure. As an item to use whilst increasing in value the car represents a very sound purchase that is sure to charm all who see whether dedicated TVR enthusiasts or not.
