About

I purchased it new from British United Automobiles on Church Street in Toronto, it was the feature car at the Toronto Auto Show that year in a new colour, Magenta. I couldn't resist the colour and I traded in my 1971 MGB GT, $4,246. full price at the time. What followed was 2 years of dealer horror and problems with the TR6. British quality at the time appeared to be at all time low and this car let me down more times then I could count. Great fun when it was running but it just had too many electrical and mechanical issues that evenually British Leyland washed their hands of. Over the next 30 years I did own several more TR6s which were reliable, something I can't explain, I can only guess the problems were fixed by others .
