I ran across this today. Not sure I'll have time, but I will be in Austin this weekend & might be able to go have a look for you if you're interested.

Hi Rob,
Definitely worth looking at it if you have the time.
Sent you a PM with my contact information.

Just wished that the seller had a better detailed facts about what he has.
I emailed him to try and get more details about the car.

Gary

Hi Rob,
I just want to thank you again for taking your time to look at this TR6 for me.
You did me a great favor and saved me from a big disappointment (and a long trip).
Your pictures showed exactly what I was wanting to know.
I enjoyed talking with you and you describing the car.
If I can ever return the favor, please let me know.

Gary

A lot of work went into that car.
I don't care much for the hacked off windshield as it makes it impossible to install a soft top or a hardtop.
I think the original TR6 seats would have worked better with the overall theme of the car.
Those two things could be easily rectified.
It would be interesting to see how much it goes for.

Cheers
Byron

Very tidy build.

Actually, I like the seats.
But then, I wouldn't be going with the racing theme.

For me, other than the screen, I would look to change the trans. 3.55 gears and no o/d do not make for a pleasant highway car.
Perhaps why the owner stood it under a waterfall of money, and then drove just 50 miles.

I know Gary you have a few Grand Nationals so you might be very current with this V6 motor.

It is in CA though!

Hi Don,
This TR6 has a 1977 Buick v6 , no turbo so 100 to 125hp. If hopped up maybe more.
The 86-87 GN turbo engine has the turbo mounted on the passenger side (right in front of the engine) and sit up higher than the valve cover. This creates a clearance problem with most small cars.

Nice looking TR6 other wise.
Gary

How much?????

Pretty good, but $47,500??
Well, one only lives once.
So if it floats one's boat, OK.
