This is one of the earliest production first-year TR6s you will find anywhere. and if I could. I would keep this car forever! I have had a wonderful time with this car and had no intention of ever selling it but my life situation has changed so you can have the benefit of my investments in time and money - lots of money. All of the mechanicals on this car have been upgraded with the best available parts. The Dupont T-5 conversion is widely regarded as the best transmission swap. and is no longer available - easily cruise all day at 75 mph on the highway! The Patton fuel injection/electronic ignition means no fiddling with carburetors or points. and it fires right up any time - even after sitting in the garage for a few weeks (it gets great mileage. too). The brand new GPS speedometer driver is fantastic; all the gear ratios have been changed. but the speedometer is accurate to within 1 mph! The car does need. and deserve. some good cosmetic work. I was told the car sat for 13 years prior to my purchase. and it shows - there are minor dents and scratches on the both the bonnet and boot. The top also needs some work. but I am including needed parts with the sale. I hope this car can find a home with someone who will love it as much as I have! The car is sold as-is where-is. but you could drive it to anywhere in the country with confidence.
