Pilkie's New Project

Recommended Posts

Here is my next project car.

A 1970 USA market federal spec LHD Rover P6 3500S, V8 Auto.

Effectively a series 1,but with many upgrades for the USA.

Many of which were then incorporated into the UK market series 2's.

Its 99% rust free,mechanically excellent,needs total repaint and some interior trim TLC.

Its not easy finding them,but mostly they find me.

And I do choose my projects VERY carefully.

As I don't want a rust bucket or money pit.

This was a 2 car deal that came from The Netherlands.

Green car is rotten and just for useful and unique spares.

Engine bay need putting back to near original spec.

But without the choking USA emissions items connected.

Hopefully will look more like this when finished.

Hello all.

 

Just to let you know that I have now sold my 1970 TR6.

I still have a large amount of spares and the reg number; ATR 6H to sell.

So go here if interested,or pass it on to somebody who might be.

I would much prefer parts went as a job lot,and you can then sell what you don't want.

Reg number obviously a seperate sale.

50% of the spares sale price is going to Macmillan.

I hope to back in the future with another TR.

But for the next 3-6 months I will be undergoing chemotherapy,and will be feeling really ****.

Once the treatment is done,and I am back from a months recuperation at my old mums in NZ,

I will probably buy a big yank RV and travel around the UK with my cat Casper visiting classic car shows as I go.

 

Cheers for now.

 

 

Dave Pilkie.

 

PS.

Well today I am happy,glad and sad.
Sid the TR6 has just been collected by its new owner Chas and his son.
I had inherited a new never worn leather flying jacket that was too small for me,
but a perfect fit on him,so I decided to let him have that as well as it suits him and the car.
Enjoy your new owner Sid.
Thanks for nearly 10 yrs of great memories.
