The car in these photos was just purchased (by me) on Wednesday, Sep 11 2013, and I have installed a new black vinyl top.
This car is originally from Arizona, and then later purchased by owners in Milwaukee WI and Chicago, IL, near where I currently live. It was not driven during the harsh winters here, and the condition bears this out, it is virtually rust-free and in great condition.
I currently place the value of this car in its current condition to be approximately $18,000.00 United States Dollars, however reasonable offers will certainly be entertained..
This 39-year old car is an excellent example of a "survivor" that can be driven daily, and is an exceptionally nice looking car. This TR-6 is in well-cared for condition. The current odometer reading (62,433) is deemed as original mileage according to receipts for mechanical work (available upon request). The car has been consistently maintained mechanically over the years according to the meticulous records provided with the car, and it proves to be a very good running and driving TR6.
Recent maintenance includes:
New floor carpeting added where the original carpet was worn/tattered
New trunk carpeting and vinyl/wood gas tank covering partition with light
New vinyl convertible top
New heater valve.
New brake master cylinder.
New rear brake lines (from master to wheels).
Professional body-off frame repairs with new trailing arm mount sections.
New hoses and fan belt.
Just installed: A Brand new set of 205/70/R15 Michelin Symmetry tires. These tires have less than 200 miles on them.
Performance: The car starts easily and drives very well. It feels very solid and stable on the road. The car has plenty of power and revs well through the rev range. The brakes perform very well. The steering is tight feeling.
All the dashboard gauges and dashboard lights work well. The interior lights (door) do not work . The heater and fan work perfectly. The interior controls all work fine. The emergency/parking brake works very well. The aftermarket AM/FM stereo/mono radio works well (the radio speaker is behind the back seat).
The car has an older repaint. There are a few little marks and scratches here and there. Under the hood the paintwork on the firewall and on the inner fenders and engine bay is really clean and nice. The doors open and close without a hitch. The chrome on both bumpers is in good condition. The windshield is very clean and clear. The majority of the car is rust-free. There are two very small lines of rust bubbles on the upper rear deck that have not changed in more than 7 years according to the previous owner. On the fender behind the drivers door there is an area 1 x of rust bubbles. The drivers side rear fender peak has been repaired in the past and has a small amount of surface rust.
The car hasn''t seen rain or snow in more than 10 years according to the previous owner, and has only been driven in nice weather sparingly during that period. The frame is solid. The drivers side floor pan has a slight amount of rust and has been patched. The passenger side floor is solid.
The engine performs well and feels strong, and emits no visible emissions, and according to the previous owner does not consume oil, and my test drive of approximately 50 miles this morning tends to bear this out as correct. The radiator has no leaks and handles the normal running of the engine. The engine has a very minor oil leak. The transmission is the original 4-speed. Gear changes are easy, positive and solid and the car does not jump out of any gears. The clutch works very well. The differential doesn't make any unusual noises. The car runs best after it has been running with the choke on for a couple of minutes until the engine is warm.
The seats have two small tears one approximately 1 and the other 4 but both have been repaired and are not obvious. The door panels and rear panel are all complete and in great shape with no rips or tears or wear marks. The wooden dash is original and in very good shape.
Included with the car:
An original vinyl soft top boot cover.
One ignition key, glove box keys and two keys each for trunk and doors.
An original vinyl tonneau cover.
A copy of Bentley''s workshop repair manual for the TR6.
The original jack and a new lug wrench.
