History: please review all the great documents for the history that are most valuable, although this was purchased from a Texas owner who had owned for 18 years, it was then discovered that this was an original Atlanta car sold by Troncalli Motors (well known to this writer) on June 17, 1975 (LINK), records confirm said Atlanta history and then many other records of the doctor in Texas who owned from late 1999 until 2018, this was maintained in dry Texas by a shop for many years, then when this was shipped to the Fraser Dante shop to check everything and bring it up to higher standards in late 2018, now all the original body parts are checked by our staff, the car has the nice cosmetics brought forth, the paint is just prepared by a top paint expert to check any minor flaws, then the final buffing and polishing are finished by another professional for Christmas 2018, all the original chrome bumpers are very good with but a only bit of minor patina, highly polished, these bumpers are not reproduced today, this has the great looking chrome luggage rack, this is just completed as this is prepared for 2019 Spring Driven cosmetic Show conditions, then the excellent British mechanic finished the mechanicals,

special history note:  please look at the ‘more photos’ section as well as the history LINK that shows the Atlanta Troncalli documents with items like the consumer Information and initial registration of chassis CF 35409UO…then the ownership in Texas by Dr. Ortiz in his great effort to keep good records (LINK), very seldom does one find such great history,

Tires/Wheels: a great addition to this nice TR6 that this has a great choice with expensive  wheels and excellent tires, said Michelin Defender 205/70R/15 radial tires can be mounted on either the great looking virtually new 5 argent knockoff wire wheels, OR one can upgrade to 15x5.5” brand new light weight period looking alloy Minilites replicas should one wish to do so, see the photos of the wire wheels installed and the (LINK), of the great new alloys,

note: if one chooses the knockoff bright chrome wires that came on the car when received, with specifics stating that they have some minor rust in the inner hub and back of the spokes, Fraser Dante will take off $1000 off the price, a very fair deal,

Engine: first of all note that this sports car has the correct green coolant system hoses and clamps for performance and show, a full brand new professional tune, it is powered by the great and ‘numbers’ of the specificsare noted in the engine (LINK), this is very strong and detailed engine, the engine features the excellent 2.5 liter straight 6 cylinder, this is designed with strong torque lbs with 2.94” bore and long 3.74” stroke, fresh full new expensive SU carburetors with FZX 3045 numbers, has the  Stanpart Aluminum intake manifold #V3389, cylinder head #313247 #219019, engine block #CF35360 (SEE LINK), uprated Pertronix electronic ignition and an electric fuel pump, a new gas tank, all yielding really spirited performance, with dry cold reading compression just taken of 127 to 137 lbs in a dry cold reading that is within only 10 lbs apart (LINK), this reading will improve with the final valve adjustment, this is excellent and this goes in line with the history of the stock 7.5:1 compression, coolant levels checked as the radiator taken out, and replaced with a brand new expensive radiator, then fresh fluids (SEE LINK), brand new Champion N9YC spark plugs and great Cobalt 8mm ignition spark plug wire wires, (LINK), see photos of rocker arms (LINK),

Radiator and cooling: just installed is a brand new and factory radiator with fresh coolant, in order for this very proper engine bay to present well for top Driven Show and also be fresh for great cooling, the brand new set of green very correct factory hoses with the proper clamps are just installed (SEE LINK), this kit is very extensive, works well and very important for show use,

the Fraser Dante in house British senior mechanic just tested the engine with a compression test is pulled, then we checked the engine timing and the reset the valves, these are all set to factory specs, thusly just right for such an engine, a brand new show valve cover is added with gasket, great for show and performance,

The Fraser Dante professional shop then did the final road check and just road tested as a very ‘spirited’ driver, the electrics work great, all the lighting works, even the rear area under the spare that has just had semi-gloss cover applied for protection, outside British show badging,

racing oil/filter: Special Valvoline high performance VR1 20-50 high zinc oil is added along with new filter for engine protection (LINK), note this step is the top racing quality oil that only top shops use,

Transmission/rear end: this well sorted 1975 TR6 has the fine working 4-speed transmission with working overdrive, has a full checking of the transmission lube, with all 4 gears being synchromesh gears, this shifts into all gears easily, with the semi-floating axle shafts, this three piece casting has hypoid gears with the rear end ratio with this overdrive runs a 4.10:1 gear, gives a great low end starting gear and then a great road gear with the overdrive unit, 

electrical: all the lighting is checked and working, the modern headlights are good and bright, the turn signals and brake lights work, note that even the backup lights work on both sides, under the hood, the wiring is checked and the engine runs great,

trim: the bumpers appeared to be original from new in just fine condition when the car was found, today with the new polishing, they look extremely nice and hard to find like this nice but with only but a bit of patina, hard to find ‘original’ so nice, note that Fraser Dante has taken off the large bumpers that were federally demanded in the era, this yields a much cleaner look that was seen in the earlier TR6’s, See LINK to work, black trim pieces have been removed, primed and repainted (LINK),

underchassis and frame:  here is an exceptional solid and original underchassis and frame when received into the Fraser Dante shop, the photos show the original very solid, rust free floors with virtually no undercoating when Fraser Dante put into the shop, then via our photos (LINK), one can see the original factory terrific red oxide that was still on the floors after we received the car…hard to find like this…then now for show conditions, the floors are then nicely just detailed with fresh new red oxide on the floors, then the great and most solid frame is painted black, both are cleared with the handwork by the Fraser Dante shop, since this overdrive runs a 4.10:1 gear, the higher gear is easier for up to 70 mph, new brakes just installed (LINK),

INTERIOR: many items include the full black bucket seats and carpets that are very nice, full correct Smith’s gauges that work, these gauges look great, all detailed, has the Triumph black floor mats, expensive uprated narrow wood Tri-spoke Moto Lita sport steering wheel plus hub is installed, then effort just expended to make sure the horns blow, all new wood dash trim, seat belts, teak wood face dash kit that looks great, newer Clarion radio, top boot, full tonneau, all lights just checked,

See the very desirable black tonneau full interior cover along with the top cover that both look really great, note that the top is done in the uprated Hartz black fabric, 

collectability: these restored TR6’s are really coming into their own as a fun easy to maintain sports car convertible with very good power and parts that are accessible, the AUTOWEEK article of August 18, 2014 features these cars, (LINK), their quote of “good examples have a fantastic fun-to-dollar ratio” and the “parts support is outstanding” sums up their growing status today,   

Summary: now prepared being ready for Christmas 2018 in just terrific condition, drives superbly with recent tune and setup by top British mechanic, very seldom does one find such great documents on the 1975 TR6 that are in the file, this car has great eyes, great mechanicals, great wheels, here is wonderful just ultimate driving TR6, fun to drive or take to a local show on a pretty day, Owner's Handbook (LINK), TR6 Color Chart (LINK), offered at only $25,950
