  • Buying assistance

    Hi all, I’m considering returning to the TR6 owners club after a very long time. While I’m reasonably mechanically inclined I’m not looking for a project car. I’d like one that looks and drives nice and has stayed as true to stock as possible. I’ve found one that is interesting in Torrance, CA ( see post below).

    I’d appreciate any opinions from the experts on this forum and if there is a surrogate buyer willing to help on site that would be even better. I’m located in southern Ohio so visiting in person may be difficult. Thanks in advance for any guidance.

    Looks like a nice car and it should be as the price is at the top of the range. A couple things that are odd to me...first, the top replacement. I find it odd that the top would need to be replaced considering the interior is purported to be original. Maybe it’s just me, but the dash looks a little light in colour for a stock/ aged dash. The other thing that concerns me is that is purported to be the original paint. Quite a bit of overspray obvious on the front and rear underside of the car...

    I like the magenta as a colour, it’s a shame it doesn’t have overdrive.

    Cheers

      Looks to be a clean example. I didnt see anything which caused me pause. If it is represented as the seller indicates (one owner, etc) it appears to be a quality survivor.

                dirk --- Are you still interested in this car? Lemmings hasn't responded as to whether this car is still available.
