NOW SOLD! Way to go David, you got a great one! (the third car he has purchased from us, thank you!)
Sometimes we are lucky to get cars from the ideal seller and this TR6 is such a car. It’s awfully close to perfect, as far as I am concerned, and we are lucky to have this one to offer for sale.
What makes a perfect car? We can drive it out of the trailer without fear of getting stranded. We can photograph it when it arrives without concern, surprises or failed expectations. In fact everything about this car exceeded my expectation. It’s that good.
Many thanks are due to the prior owner, who was meticulous with this car and who sweated the details so that the new owner won’t have to. The leather seats are perfect. The upgraded burl wood dash is stunning. Everything is super clean. The engine bay is concours quality. If you are the kind of person who wants the best example of a particular marque, this car is for you.
It is a delight to drive and needs nothing, except maybe a tonneau (that’s a boot cover in the trunk). Dynamat is installed throughout for quiet. Coker red line tires are nearly new. A USB cable is hidden in the glove box so you can connect. An emergency hood release hangs in the passenger footwell in the unlikely event that the hood release cable should fail. And most importantly, a Toyota five-speed was installed. The car shifts beautifully on a gear box that will outlive us all… no more electric overdrive! (with more moving parts than the entire car)!
That’s my definition of perfection in a British car-one that looks flawless, and makes you want to drive and enjoy it. If you are purist who wants your original transmission in tact, that’s cool. I personally would take this five speed any day, as it is one less thing to leak and go wrong. Plus it affords much more pleasant highway cruising, where any TR6 can come into its own.
If only we could find this grade of British car more often…
