No longer owned


The car is a 1974 TR6 which was the 4th one I have owned. It was french blue and actually was well equipped with a hardtop, overdrive and an Ansa exhaust. I bought this in 2001 in a weak moment just because these cars have always appealed to me with their aggressive styling. I bought it in Toronto in the winter out of an underground again. The sellers pitch was good and he appeared sincere. This car had had the frame patched with tin over the holes and then covered with tar. It just looked great but had the dreaded rust problem in the bajo and trailing arm section so many do. On the bright side I paid very little for it and sold it on to a fellow who wanted to restore one anyway. I also had along the way squirreled away a nice frame which went along with the car. Hopefully I have learned my lesson and that was my last one.
