Car description

This car was purchased as a barn find. In 1995 the engine and transmission were rebuilt professionally including all engine compartment components, ie, brake master, brake booster, etc. The rebuild also included conversion to SU HS6 carburetors, which are far superior to the stock Zenith's. Today, the SU's are $900 a pair for the parts only. I've driven both and if I were going to set up another TR6, these would
be my choice. The total cost of the engine and transmission rebuild and the SU carb conversion was over $5400. I have receipts to document the work and cost.
In 1997 it got a complete body off restoration of the body and running gear, including new bumpers which are still rust free. The cost of this was over $7800 and I also have the receipts for this work.
About $1700 in other parts were installed between 2005 and 2010.
Pictures verifying the engine and body work are included. I just added five pictures of the rear suspension work, the underside and a shot through the engine compartment showing the newly completed frame
It has been driven a few hundred miles since the restoration and always kept in heated storage.
In addition to the soft top it includes a factory hardtop which was painted at the same time as the body, a boot cover. a tonneau cover and a car cover. The soft top has a small hole in one of the corner windows and the tonneau cover has a silver dollar size hole that could be patched. The hard top needs a new headliner, but can be used as is.
It has four red line tires with almost no mileage on them, but they have flat spots from sitting which may come out with some local driving.
It needs a new radio, but does include both 'kidney panels' with speakers in them so installation would be easy. A Retrosound radio would fit with no cutting of the center panel required.
