Is it modified?
Well, a recent owner has done a lot of improvement.

But leaving that aside, thought you might enjoy seeing this beautiful GT, based on a lengthened TR6 chassis.
I'll copy some of the pics and detail into the forum later, but for the moment, just enjoy what must be one of the most handsome cars ever to be put on the road,

It does look more TVR than Triumph, but very good looking. With the V6 or the V8 version it must be a hoot to drive!

I must take the TR6-V8 for a spin now!

That is fabulous. Truly. If you have any information on the build of the car, I'd like to see it. I have been discussing with Doug Hansen about building a GT. He has a build going on a TR4. You can find a UTube showing it. He uses a MKIII Spitfire top. He mocked up a MKII onto a carcass of a TR6. It looks just as good as this car does, from the side. It doesn't work so well in back because of the longer deck on the TR6. We're looking for a MKIII to mock it on and see what it looks like. I've tried to imagine how we might lengthen the back and cannot. The geometry of the windows is ruined.

Also, while the front looks like a TVR, the rear clearly resembles a TR6.

OK, I Googled it. The car WAS a TVR. Later, it was a separate company. I wonder now, if it really was based on a TR6
