My first task as editor of the M Series area is to introduce myself. My name is Geoff Gwynne, now very old, interested in TVR's since the 1960's, member of the Car Club since 1984 and owner of a '79 Taimar and a '73 S4 Vixen.

M Series - 3000M
3000M belonging to Pietro Abate

The "M" Series brought together the Vixen and Wide Bodied Tuscan on a new chassis. The model range started with one fastback body and three engines, 1600M; (1600cc, Ford straight 4) 2500M; (2500cc, Triumph straight 6) and 3000M; (3000cc Ford Essex V6) and ended, in 1980, with three body styles, 3000M, Taimar (a 3000M with a hatchback) and 3000S convertible, all of which incorporated the 3litre engine, of these 63 were built with the Broadspeed derived 230bhp Turbo.

The best the editor can do is refer our readers to an excellent article by Clive in the March 2004 edition of Sprint.

Also see Sprint Sept 1995.

Trivia fact: The last Essex V6 was made on 19-12-1999 and was most probably destined for a South African pick-up truck..
