Greetings all,

I live in Puerto Rico and I am attempting to restore
a 1969 Triumph TR6. I spotted this car behind a fence
this afternoon. Can anyone here tell me what I found?

Thanks,

dale

TVR - one of the early "wedge" models - 280i Tasmin, 350i, etc

Looks like a series 2 wedgie, 86 or 87 vintage

Unless I miss my guess, it's a 1987 TVR 280i and the sister to my white one which was sold new in Puerto Rico. There were four 1987 280is imported into PR, a White one, Red, one, Yellow one, and another white one. My guess is that this is the yellow one, but without the VIN# I can't know for sure.

Gorgeous car, what a pity about the scuffs.

Mrtvr:

Thanks for the info. Is this something I should
take a second look see? It is very near my home.

thanks,

Looks like a fibreglass shower laying on it's side and covered with a black cover. Love the front marker lites!
Cheers.

Dale,
If you were able to check closer and get the serial number, it would help verify it for the club's Model Registry.

Thanks for your interest,
