    I have owned TR7's since 1980. I guess I've owned about 15 of them. Mostly because I could buy real nice ones in the junk yards for about $200 with perfect rust free bodies. Since I live in the dessert of AZ (100 degree plus temps) these cars went terminal around 30 to 40 thousand miles. People gave up on them and junked them. I always had a soft spot for them and that's my story. I really can't remember the last one I seen in a junk yard in Tucson. It had to be 10 years ago, if they show up now, they are crushed pretty quick. I have been putting Buick V6's in them for about 20 years. But, I bought a dessert DHC TR8 a few years ago and one of my FHC TR7 V6 cars is being converted again to TR8 stats since I have been collecting TR8 parts for a few years. I make my own conversion parts or use to, never did like any of the commonly availible kits. In case your are wondering, that the TR7 stock A/C compressor and lines, one of my little tricks to use as many TR7 parts as possible. No one else does that. Enjoy.

    It comes off a 1978 Turbo Buick V6. I use to get them in wrecking yards, now only on EBAY. Nice part is that indent towards the back, clears the hood inner brace perfectly.
