“Just like its title implies, if you like underdogs and British cars, then TVR is the marque for you. These hand-built fiberglass sports cars with their tube chassis are known for their exceptional handling, striking styling and very limited production.
Although few books have been published on TVR, this particular text by Peter Filby was the first. I bought my copy brand new, paying $14.95 when it was first published back in 1976.
Within the 224 pages of this hardcover book, you will learn about the history of TVR and its founder, Trevor Wilkinson, and how the company came about during the winter of 1947. It then goes on to detail this small company’s history up to the years when it was owned by Martin Lilley, and the widespread M-series cars that were created under his management.Like most books published back in the 1970s, the photographs are only printed in black and white, many of which are quite dark, but they are interesting nonetheless. Besides the history of the 2500M-series cars, there are chapters devoted to all the popular models, such as the Grantura, Vixen, Tuscan and MK3 1800S, as well as lots of insightful information regarding the creation of the first few models such as TVR #1 and #2, the 1954 Sports Saloon and the Coupe of 1957. The appendices in the back of the book highlight each model in a full-page specification listing, along with production numbers and brief, but important, notes about their production.”
