Hark at me, writing M22 as if I knew what it is.

Anyway, I do know that this looks a cracking TR4A. I like the TR6, but in terms of looks the Michelotti body trumps the 6 hands down.

Under the bonnet looks pretty good too. I could moan about the fan, but it's clean, has a rad shroud, original overflow bottle, nice restomod touches. Inside I could moan about the instruments, but wth.

A lovely car. $31,995.

OK it's a lot, but it's done, get in and go.

The Description indicates the car is equipped with a M-21 Muncie transmission which is a GM tranny . The M-21 was a close ratio box where the M-22 was also known as "Rock Crusher" due to its being the HD version. It was behind the Big Block high HP GM cars. They required an add on shifter such as Hurst "Back in the Day". Most European car have an integral shifter as part of Transmission.
This example is a Beautiful car.
