This one is kinda cute....until you look closely and see the bright red over spray on the steering shaft and distributor and brake booster and, and, and......

Oh well, its only $15,500 to buy it now.

yup, a real bute. Done by the house of tacky. I use to foam at the cars on ebay,now I realise my time would be better spent kicking rocks with my bare feet.

No, but thank you for asking.

If I'm going to get a divorce, it will be over a nicer ride than that! /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

The bonnet to wing body shut lines are awful; both wide and uneven. No offense to anyone here who might own it/buy it. I'd wonder what else is wrong.

Is that overspray all around the base of the windscreen gasket?

My question is about the frame as well. Before you pay $15K
for a TR6 the frame should have pics posted and more details given about the drive train condition and what the suspension is like.
A guy in our club bought a car off ebay drove it for a short drive and towed it home to find later the paint was poor quality, the frame was bent from a previous wreck and now the body has to come off to straighten it and do serious welding and reinforcement. Not to mention the frame is very rusty. Of course he only paid $12K because it had new carpet and had the original interior.
The guy is now snake bit on Triumphs and wants to sell it as is but needs too much for it.
