Only selling as I have bought a TR6
I eventually acquired this car last year after it had been garaged by it's previous owner for 20 years!! He went contracting in 1995 and never used the car again!
Registered on the 11th August 1983 by the garage in Kendal. its first owner. from Ambleside. bought it 8 days later. The second owner had it from November 1985 until I got it last year. It has always been a local car (EC reg). The car was then put into a dry garage from November 1995 until October 2015 when I bought it. Having been undersealed and injected the bodywork and floorpan are in great shape. Being a qualified engineer the last owner did all of the servicing and maintenance himself. I have a letter of authenticity from him confirming all of this and DVLA sorn printout confirms the car was off road since May 1995
Having bought the car it required some recommissioning. All of the petrol hoses had dried and perished. These were all replaced including the tank overflow and injection rubbers. Lifters were done and tappets adjusted. Couple of new headlight relays and 4 new tyres as they had flat spots with standing! It was then ready for MoT which it passed with no advisories. The examiner even commented on how solid it was. (the waxoyl system doing it's job obviously!) 
I have taken it to a few classic car shows this summer and have had great comments. They are a very rare sight nowadays especially in auto form and prices are rising rapidly. There are a few stone chips and the odd blemish starting as it is 33 years old. but it is original. Under the bonnet is not shiny as this also was treated with the clear underseal. It could be removed but I have left the car as is because the treatment has obviously kept it in this good condition. Drivers seat has slight wear to the bolster as normal on these Recaro's (see pic)
There are both sets of keys with the car and the mileage may go up slightly as I still like to take it out.  
Please come and see for yourself or at least ring me on 07565141000 or contact through ebay. This is a classified ad but you may make serious offers for me to consider. It is a shame that auction adverts seem to attract bidders who do not get in touch.
Cash on collection or bank transfer please.
