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, said receipt for that work and the new pinion seal is part of the file, here is another desirable addition for driven show car,

Transmission:  this factory 4-speed transmission works great and has working electronic overdrive, new black leather shift boot in the proper factory shift console, said overdrive system has just been checked with service records as part of the file, see all of the ‘numbers’ that are shown on this extensive report (LINK),
 

chassis:  a very very important area and strong point of this 1970 TR6 is the very solid and really great shape underchassis and frame (SEE THE GREAT LINKS), very hard to find like this so original, just recently detailed by the Fraser Dante restoration team 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 frame 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 was from when it was applied from the factory, see the photos of how good these floors that are shown before Fraser Dante completed our work (LINK), someone previously had protected these floor with black paint, one can see the original floors with now the factory red oxide color, a very strong point are the floors, the great detailed show quality underchassis area is carefully shown in the other area of this report,

see inside floors shown from the top with photos just taken, the good and original floors are now just painted factory colored black (SEE LINK), then one can see the insulation area, then the other photos show the new carpet back in the car, the seat tracks have just been bead blasted and then cleared, the seat locks are just set, again the photos show how nice these lower areas are (LINK),

NOW really nice presentation with recent many hours just spent by the restoration staff at Fraser Dante to show the current condition with the new Red Oxide that has a clear coat to protect, now this brings this rust free lower chassis area to driven show condition with lots of expert hand work, see the close up photos of underchassis today that is presented with close up many photos to ascertain condition (SEE THE LARGE LINK), now ready to show with mirrors are the full proper red oxided floors just finished and the black proper frame work,  this is really serious work for an investment 1970 TR6 that is ready to show and drive!

history:  it is believed that the whole car has about 42,000 miles on the chassis, then in the build in 2015 before the final late Fall 2017 finish, the speedometer had stopped working and could not be fixed, then 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 excellent chassis now presented 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, hard to find the new factory pieces, these units came from Victoria British and cost $882 even before the install, these proper units are very expensive and said correct taillights and the wiring are just installed, since these are hard to find, here in another added plus to this very nice 1970 TR6, note that the wiring works well, new Wagner halogen headlights, great attention to detail in the running, see the new alternator,

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

wheels/tires/brakes:  another high point are the brakes, this has the newly upgraded all the rubber brake lines are new, many photos show their new condition the front disc brakes have been upgraded with the upgraded very expensive slotted and cross drilled front rotors, new pads, excellent brake lines, also the rear drums have just been rebuilt with new lines and brake cylinders that are from the Moss Motors, all high-end parts, see the (LINK) for the uprated front discs and the new rear drums that show the professional effort completed at Fraser Dante, when completing the final work, the full braking system was flushed by Fraser Dante with all new fluids and the system bled so that every effort is completed to make sure that this has safe and high-performance braking, a far cry from an auction car, this is out of two restoration shops, said new photos shown and yield a great view of current brake very fresh condition,

the stock restored argent colored wheels have the proper trim rings (the expensive stainless units are used) and proper center caps, all polished, the tires are Douglas XtraTrac II 205/70R15 radials, has the restored tool kit with matching spare wheel,

suspension:  here again shows the top suspension with the fresh upper and lower tire rods, new control arms, new ball joints, lower rocker arms, all is documented as one can see the (LINK), all great shocks around, this even has the rebuilt steering rack so it tracks straight, a real added plus, to show the condition of said suspension, see the new photos of the exceptional rear alloy trailing arms that are in fine condition and have just been stripped, cleaned and then prepared for show presentation (SEE CLOSE UP LINK),

trunk: a real show area that ‘looks better in person’ than the photos show is the new full trunk area is just cleaned and painted by the Fraser Dante restoration staff, note the very clear shots of the rust-free trunk, lower carpets, the full new black trunk mat, has the matching spare wheel with tire, also note the photos of the just refinished jack and lug wrench, they are stripped and painted correct black, now wrapped in a micro fiber protector, the trunk is like a time warp it is so nice,
