1974 TR-6

Owner: Len Myers

Purchased January 1990

Frame-off restoration started Fall 1993, completed May 1994

Equipment notes: Triple Weber carbs/manifold; compression ratio raised to about 10:1; free flow exhaust headers and system; electronic ignition; overdrive; revised cam profile; competition springs and urethane bushings in suspension system; Yokohoma tires on Panasport wheels; extra heat shield and sound insulation in passenger cabin; fiberglass transmission tunnel and radiator shroud; electric fan and heavy duty radiator; oil cooler; luggage rack.

Awards: First in Class 1995 VTR South Central Regional; First in Class, 1994 and 1995 Houston All British Motor Vehicle Expo.

Remarks: This car was partially disassembled and needed an engine overhaul and suspension rebuild when purchased as a driver. After completing our TR-3A, we decided that the TR-6 needed a more thorough “clean up” and that ended up as a frame-off restoration. We drive this car when we can but it is noisy and can be uncomfortable in city traffic; however, it’s great on open roads. My son Jeff would like to become proficient at autocrossing this TR-6.
