It has the TR6 idle adjust. (If that's what you call it?) and later alternator. It doesn't look that bad.

 

Cheers John

updated description has appeared... not sure they should be "making the car run" though ..

 

"In single ownership for almost fifty years with just one owner prior from new, this UK supplied matching numbers example is, in our opinion, probably the best basis for a TR5 restoration available. In storage since the early '00s, the engine turns and attempts will be made by our technicians to make the car run. Viewing of this entry is highly recommended. V5 to be applied for. The last owner is, at present, searching for the original buff log book and associated paperwork. Our website will be updated in due course"

Wrong grille BTW.

Are we laying bets as to what it makes? I suspect it will manage serious money as unrestored cars dont appear very often now and it has a Surrey too.

Stuart.

 

It also appears to have pretty well all the correct parts [steering wheel in boot, for example] & detail:-.... chrome strip and black below doors, painted beads, wheel trims etc etc...Jolly good shut lines too ??

 

Okay, non overdrive [from new it, seems].

Non overdrive cars arent that unusual, I think Dave IOW `s car wasnt either originally.and possibly Jeff from Moss`s one as well

Description has been updated...

 

"In single ownership since the early 1970's with just one owner showing prior from new. This is a UK supplied matching numbers example which is, in our opinion, probably the best basis for a TR5 restoration available. In it's original Wedgwood blue and black trim, it retains the Surrey top and rare Rostyle trims. Stored since early 2000, the engine turns freely and has been running with good oil pressure. Viewing of this entry is highly recommended. The old style V5 is now present along with a poor quality copy of the original buff log book, several MoT's dating  from the 1970's, 1980's, 1990's until the early 2000's. Mileage recorded at 46,060."

Yes, a later CR TR6 one - but that's a lovely TR5 in my view and, subject to a sound chassis, I wouldn't want to do too much to it other than preserve it's condition.

 

Wonder what'll make - £30+K?

Two maxims for TR ownership:  

1.  When looking a your prospective new TR, remember that you can't polish a turd, but you can roll it in glitter..........

2.  If you think you paid too much for your TR or rare part, then you probably just bought it too early..............

Yes, we can al pan the car but show me a TR that hasn't had a few bits from other models fitted over the year due to necessity at the time.
