Vehicle Description

This is one of the most desirable of GT 6's having had a complete body off restoration in its more recent history.

It is accompanied by a fabulous collection of photographs detailing the complete nut & bolt restoration. I also have a separate history file bulging with bills and receipts clearly demonstrating very caring and meticulous previous ownership.

The engine has been fully uprated for fast road use, sitting upfront now is a 2.5 Litre TR6 block with host of additional goodies: lighted and balance crankshaft coupled to a fast road camshaft, slipper pistons, stage 3 cylinder head, lighted fly wheel, roller rocker assembly, lumenition ignition, oil cooler, facet electric fuel pump, bespoke alloy radiator, electric cooling fan, JTS inlet manifold, triple SU carburettors, heat wrapper exhaust and a stainless semi sport exhaust.

The suspension has also been modified to cope with the enhance performance. This includes Spax adjustable shock absorbers, uprated front springs and rear anti roll bar. To help her stop the brakes are servo assisted whilst the front discs are crossed drilled and enjoy 4 pot calipers. She sits beautifully on unmarked 14' compomotive minilite alloy wheels. The list is endless - overdrive on 3rd & 4th works correct, engaging smoothly and quickly.

The paint work positively sparkles under many layers of canuba wax, whilst the under body is equally good having been properly rust proofed and under sealed. There are two period sport seats currently fitted but I also have 2 original Mk3 seats as well. The carpets and headlining are in first class order as is the dash top and wooden fascia.

This amazing triple carb high performance classic would cost a fortune to replicate today - in short, very fast, very desirable & very rare in this condition.

There's nothing to do apart from enjoy the wondrous sound a great British straight six.
