43. I really lucked out
when i got this car....all it really needed was some engine work
and elbow grease. Im the second ower it came from California.
Its taken about 2yrs. but now have it in great shape. Everything
is original alot of new parts under the hood and replaced alot of
small things to bring it back to originality.
Like the knock-offs had the wire wheels repowdercoated, right down
to the Lucas headlights. We are pretty lucky here we have a place
called Team Triumph which deals in all British Parts so its easy
to obtain original parts. Even a Triumph horn! BEEP BEEP! I can
hardly wait for spring to drive it again its a fun little car and
not one you see everyday. My friend which is also my mechanic
got me into british cars a few years back. He's got a TR6. I
can thank him for the finishing touches! He loves these cars and
spends alot of time on both his and mine. Wish i was better at
posting a picture of it. I might not of learned how to post a picture
yet............but i've learned alot cars.
