TR6 New project -73 TR6

I used to post here a few years ago when I was working on a 73 TR6. The frame and the tub were lost when the shop I had them at went out of business.

Since I still have a complete car, just not a rolling frame and tub, I tracked down a new project.

This weekend I picked up very original 73 TR6 that isn't in too bad of shape.

welcome back!

wow what a great scam, open up a shop, take in a bunch of high end cars, go out of business and then keep all the cars!

I cant believe you lost your parts just because a shop goes out of business!

good luck with the new project

Welcome back also, the sheet metal looks decent there, should be a good project. Hook up with the Red River club if you haven't already as a suggestion. Also, work on that login name - an Aggie-Longhorn sounds awfully conflicted!

Not to mention the potential for joke material!

Welcome back, indeed! Hope this one has a better ending for you.

The old handle was Jackag91.


Basically, I did a cash deal on some body work and storage. I left town for a few months. I got back and the place was completely shut down and empty. A lawyer told me that since my deal was under the table (no record) and the body/frame didn't have an identifying marks (VIN, CC) it was gone in the wind.

I found some old pictures from my first project and thought I would share. My hope is to get to this spot on this car in the next few weeks (Late August) Mostly depends on how many "Man I forgot to order that" moments I have.

some of the rust on the frame. If you look closely between the frame and the Trailing Arm mounts you might notice the pieces of 1/8 inch angle iron holding the frame together.

New frame sections in place

Everything back together with rebuilt front and rear suspensions and a diffy with new oil seals.
