I would suspect it is all from '76-78. It came in a folder labeled "Invoices". I think the documentation came from International Import Sales Company, in Medina Ohio, but the paperwork I posted was provided by TVR America, in New York City.
 
Interesting. The Chequer Imports building (which think was d/b/a Chequer Motors) in Houston is long gone but the TVR sign is still in place and both sides appear intact. The building (showroom?) was small, wood and maybe octagonal shaped. I wounder if they were an MG dealer at some point. Grady
 
Here’s a couple of pictures of the TVR sign and the old Checquer Imports building I found on line…

I’m sure it would be a big hit with this crowd!

That's it. So I guess it was round (see how memory goes :smile: ) I do remember the shop bays in back. The highway was expanded and took the land but for some reason the sign still remains.
