Rob, thanks for the offer. I am looking for something with more HP & torque.
Best of luck on the surgery on your son.
Been there and had that done on me.

There is a '74 TR 6 with a 5.0L Ford engine for sale near Nashville. $15K. Saw it in Facebook Marketplace.

Thanks Ivor,
It looks like a great deal of attention and hard work went into this conversion.
The owner like of color is difference from my preference of color.
The price is too high for my budget.

It is beginning to look as though you are a perpetual looker, not a buyer.

Perpetual looker... yes, very easy for that to happen. I looked a long long time for a TR + V8, they were never quite right, or the timing was wrong, in the end when one came along I thought... 'I'm too old, and the wife wouldn't want to swap our comfy Rambler for that...'... so it never happened.

Now I'm sort of looking for a Jensen CV-8. There are four currently on offer, one is very dear, the others I don't like the colour, or it's the interior colour.
Like this [www.carandclassic.co.uk] that awful bright red which was popularised by a TV programme where the hero drove a CV-8 with that colour. The other common option was black. Why??? Except an undertaker, who wants a car with a black interior, not me.

OK there is some slight logic here, a colour change of paint or leather is . On the other hand I could afford it and there were just 500 of these cars built fifty-five years ago, what are the chances of finding one that's just right.
I mean, get a grip, you'll be dead one day, a lot of good saving that will do you then, But still, here I am, no Jensen.

Yes, some of us are just too picky. Perpetual looker, good phrase.

Ivor

I know you wanted a TR6, but this might be very different for you.

I do know you would stand out anywhere you drove.

If I was still in NC, it would be with 30-40 miles from where I lived. Now over 700 miles.
It does look good. Sounds like a good driver and it would turn heads because very few people would know what it is.
I did not know that they used ford running gear. Right hand drive would be interesting and shifting left hand more so.

That first one looks a real pro build, with zero miles?
Unusual breather arrangement.
Ratchet shifter hmmm.
Shame the trunk is full of fuel cell.
A big $$ ask for a car with no top.

The Hemmings car made a good price.
Is there any obligation to keep those Federal overriders nowadays?

Don,
I am waiting to hear back from the person in TN. That has a lots of promises, just hope the car lives up to the pictures?
Also I have asked for more pictures.

I agree with Ivor. It has been for sale for over a year that I know of. Owner was not the builder. Still looks great but a lots of $$$$
