Sorry For The Long Advert but this will give you an idea of what's been done on this car. If you travelled all over the country looking at mis-described, badly restored TR's then this could be for you. I've been dealing in TR's for the last 30+ years so know a good one when I see it. This is a 1970 CP TR6 (150bhp) in its orginal Damson with later J type O/D fitted. Full nut and bolt restoration completed in 2013.
4,000 miles covered since restoration. Benefits recently from new chrome wire wheels, new windscreen, new carpets, new mohair hood, 123 Ignition. Black Leather MX5 seats, Kenlowe Fan, Walnut dash and much more. Featured in several publications and includes a heritage certificate.
At the time of restoration the following was completed;-

This is not a cheap blown over car with a rusty chassis lurking beneath, this is a superb car and any professional inspection is welcome. I've just had the gearbox rebuilt and it is still bedding in carefully.
