This company was founded by Trevor Wilkinson . He manufactured plastic bodied sports cars which were originally sold in kit form . The TVR name was an abbreviation of founder Trevor's first name. Later this company produced fully assembled cars using mechanical components from British Leyland or Ford. Although not as wellknown outside of England, the company did prosper and in 1996 began to produce their own high performance engines. In 2004 this firm was sold to Russian billionaire N Smolensky .

Matchbox produced a model of the Tuscan in the mid 2000s in small scale.

I'm still looking for the exact model a neighbor of mine had in the 70's in Richmond, VA, it was bright yellow, rather plain ( no hood bulges ), and had a 4-cylinder motor. Fast little thing, I got a ride in it once, boy was it impressive! Looks a lot like this Griffith, but without the power bulges and louvers on the hood. Reminded me of the Mazda RX-7 later on. Don't see them hardly at all, even at car shows.
