I do not have receipts for the previous owner's work.
100+ photos of the car (exterior. interior. engine bay. and underside) can be seen here:

What doesn't work:
- The original British Leyland AM/FM radio was not hooked up when I bought the car. I'm not a fan of radios in convertibles. so I never tried to hook it up so I don't know if it actually works or not.
- The windshield wipers. All the components are there. but the previous owner told me the wiper motor was bad. I don't drive the car in the rain. so it was never something that was on my to do list to fix.
- The interior light switch below the radio is not wired in. It was like that when I bought the car. The interior lights do work. however. when you open the door with the key in the ignition.
- The dimmer for the gauge backlighting is not wired in. The gauge backlighting is simply on full brightness. I don't drive the car much at night. and when I did it never bothered me. so I never wired it back in.
- One small (approx 5mm) chip in paint on passenger side front fender
- Small nic in the bottom corner of the windshield on passenger side
- Small inch long separation in the bottom corners of the seam of the backrest seat covers
- A couple snaps missing for the top boot
- A couple screws that hold the rear interior panel are missing
Included with the car:
- original owner's manual
- original scissor jack and wheel lug wrench
- glovebox sized brown Triumph TR6 shop manual
- Hanes TR6 shop manual
- a couple extra Hardy Spicer GUJ116 U-joints
- a set of Goodparts Nylatron trailing arm bushings (check out goodparts. com)
- custom fit weather proof car cover
- extra airbox-to-carb gaskets
- a pair of carb-to-manifold spacers
- a bunch of overdrive and diff gaskets
- square Triumph drain/filler plug wrench
- ZS carb mixture adjustment tool
- the box of emissions equipment that the previous owner removed from the car (I haven't inventoried what's in the box. so whatever's in there is what you get)
- spare oil seals for the diff (pinion and axles)
- spare rear transmission oil seal
- various other spares. etc
If you have any questions about the car. please don't hesitate to ask!I have a clear North Carolina title for the car. in my name. ready to sign over to a buyer.
I do drive this car several times a week when the weather's nice. so the mileage will likely increase against what's listed here.
The car is also for sale locally. so I reserve the right to end this listing at any time.
I would be VERY interested in a straight up trade for a JPS. Vintage Speedster. or Intermeccanica 356 replica. I would also potentially be interested in a trade for a very excellent condition '69 or earlier Karmann Ghia. I'm really only interested in a black. silver. or dark grey 356 replica or Ghia. preferably dual carb and 1600cc or larger. Definitely NOT INTERESTED in any car that's painted red. no matter the engine/carb specs.
Buyer is responsible for making shipping arrangements. if necessary.

Beautiful car! What's the stort with the engine compartment? Thjere seems to be a blower where the battery usually sits.
