Lilley’s next salvage effort after the introduction of the TVR Tuscan V8 was a stretched, 90-inch-wheelbase TVR Tuscan, achieved by lengthening the floorpan to make all the extra space available inside. Identified by different taillamps (from the British Ford Cortina Mk II) and a revised hood, this TVR Tuscan V8 SE was built in 1967-68 and performed even worse than its predecessor: just 24 built, half of which went to the States. Chassis numbers start from LW 001, which is pictured here. Marshall Moore, President of TVRCCNA, gives a interesting info: “LW 001 was actually originally slated to be 200/016 but when it became a long wheelbase version, the factory changed the VIN# to MAL 001”.
