  1. Pete Cox for gearbox and overdrive unit. First class service. Redditch, Worc's. Also has someone who does engine builds for him.
  2. Just looked at the photo closely and noticed the Lakes rally plaque was 2014.
  3. I purchased the car from Holmes Chapel in Cheshire Nov 74. The car was white on wires no Surrey and was in pretty good condition. I believe the car was originaly purchased by a serviceman in the forces who was stationed in Germany and re imported when 12 months old and then registered in Cornwall. The car was always RHD. I have many photo' s of the car whilst in my 20 year ownership and sold the car to purchase an e type jaguar. The ownership of Tr's did not stop as I also owned a Tr3a which bought in 1975 and still own and also a TR5 which I still own. Is that a recent picture of PRL and doe
  4. I owned this car for some 20 years from Nov1974 to Nov 94. I believe to car is still owned by a Register member and was seen on the lakes tour many years ago. Be good to catch up with the current owner.
  5. I have a LHD TR6 for sale. Runs, drives but requires restoration. Very solid chassis body and panels. Very good interior and carpets and a number of new parts fitted including radiator,alternator, starter motor, brake master cylinder etc. Unable to access adverts for some reason. Long standing register member. Please contact me re queries. Mike
  6. Doe,s anyone know if PRL 144G is still in the TR Register. It was my first ever TR which I owned from Nov 74 to Nov 94. I sold the car to a member of the Coventry group who I believe also owned the car for a number of years and was then sold to another Register member. Last heard of the car taking part on the Lakes tour in the mid naughtys. I still own and use TR's on a regular basis but would like to speak to the present owner if he would like to contact me. Mike.

  8. Emco compact 8 Lathe " For sale " First of all my apologies for putting this up on the technical chat page. I have this lathe for sale on behalf of a deceased relative and I did think that I might one day have a use for this myself doing small jobs around restoring cars but have had it collecting dust in my garage for 3/4 years and never used it therefor I thought I would offer it to another member who could make use of it. The lathe comes mounted on a manufacturers lathe cabinet with a storage cabinet underneath constructed in steel. It is in very good working order but does requir
  9. Give me a call, sent you PM
  10. Hi Mark, If I can be of any assistance in undertaking an inspection on the car for you I will be happy to do so. I live approx 8 miles from Stourbridge and I have been a Register member since 1974 and i have rebuilt a number of TR's from TR2 to TR6. over the last 40+ years. I can be contacted on 07968391849. Mike Hazlewood.
  11. Probably because the TR5 was not yet in production, I believe the car was taken of the production line in late 1966 and registered by the Triumph Works 01 January 1967. GKV being a common Triumph works registration number.
  12. I am not one for seeing any car residing in a museum which clearly in the way it left Karmann as a mock up it would have neccessitated, I received an email from a previous owner after it appeared in Practical Classics which may be of interest to this cars past history. I have copied the letter as follows, Hi Mike I read with interest about your restoration of GKV 672E in the March edition of Practical Classics. I owned a prototype machining business which worked for Triumph and bought the car in 1975 from a Triumph engineer who in turn bought it direct from Triumph, he told me that whe
