Clutch: also, another area that is important that comes out when driving this terrific TR6 sports car is the brand new strong clutch full system with throw-out bearing that is installed and is quite a project to do, one must take out the seat and the transmission have to come out for this to be accomplished, this clutch now grabs quickly and strongly, receipt for that work and the new pinion seal is part of the file,

chassis:  a very very important area of this 1970 TR6 is the solid and really great shape underchassis and frame, very hard to find like this so original, then detailed and really solid!!!  All original with great floors as factory, the only replaced small area is only in the rear trunk well where the spare tire sits that was replaced, this happens when people do not keep it clean, now this is newly cleaned and just painted black, again, see the just painted very solid frame that is outstanding with no signs of rust, the chassis has no undercoating really in exceptional condition, the floors are so good that we believe the red oxide shown on our initial photos when the car was received to be from the factory, see the photos of how good these floors that are shown before Fraser Dante completed our work (LINK), one can see the original floors with the factory red oxide color, someone previously had protected these floor with black paint,

history:  it is believed that the whole car has about 42,000 miles on the chassis, then in the build in 2015 before late Fall 2017 finish, the speedometer had stopped working and could not be fixed, another working speedometer was put in, thusly the actual mileage is not accurate, it is believed that the engine and all running systems have less than 2000 miles through 2015 then with the final completion and upgrading just accomplished for late 2017, the chassis certainly supports that view,

lights: such great effort is completed on this 1970 TR6 is that the rear taillight assemblies on both sides were replaced in a matching pair, these units came from Victoria British and cost $882 even before install, these proper units are very expensive and said correct taillights and the wiring are just installed, these are hard to find, the wiring works well, new halogen headlights, great attention to detail, new alternator,

body: all body panels are original, no replacement is noted, the front fenders and rear quarters appear as factory, the British Racing Green is very nicely presented with fresh professional high-speed buffing and waxing (SEE THE LINK) just completed, the brand new lower stainless rocker moldings certainly set off the dark green color,
