 I may be able to help, I'm researching TVR Grantura racing so have a bit of info. Can I ask why you are interested.

 

There are lots of photos of the cars in period also a film on youtube see

The 63 cars were Mk3s with the later more rounded back.

 

One of the cars #51 was raced at Spa 6 hours a few weeks back, https://www.autospor...erts-2017.html#

 

The other #53 is currently for sale https://www.carandcl...uk/car/C1128036.

 

There was also a reserve car #52 which has the earlier Mk2 style back (I'm not sure where this car is now but would love to know). 

 

The cars ran with the 1622cc engine, but were not very successful in the race due to poor cooling.
