Engine info: here is the correct engine with all the exacting numbers shown (LINK), very strong and detailed engine upon completion, the engine features the excellent 2.5 liter straight 6 cylinder, strong torque lbs with 2.94” bore and 3.74” stroke, just excellent compression, fresh full throttle bushings and excellent linkage connected with new fuel lines to the dual Stromberg Carburetors, numbered 175 CD-2 on both, Stanpart Aluminum intake manifold #V3265, cylinder head #313247, engine block #CF22635UE,  fresh ignition yielding really spirited performance, with dry cold reading compression just taken of 135 to 137 lbs that is within only 2 lbs apart (LINK), this goes in line with the history of the stock 7.5:1 compression with the fresh work just completed by a top British tech, valves adjusted and the timing is set (SEE THE LINK WITH NOTES OF WORK), now that this engine literally just ‘purrs’ and is so smooth, the radiator flushed, full new green show hoses and clamps are being installed, has new spark plug wires, new spark plugs, all stock cooling shields for better cooling, an expensive new battery,

Spark plugs/plug wires: in order to insure this fresh tune works so very well for both show and performance, Fraser Dante has installed and brand new Denso 7mm high performance carbon impregnated fiberglass core braid with Suppression wires and new end caps are just installed, with these new wires, a full set of NGK BPR5ES #7734 solid core spark plugs that feature a 5-Rib insulator design and corrosion-resistant plating that provides a great spark and a broad heat range (SEE LINK), 

tires/wheels: when Fraser Dante found this car at a show and then received it at our shop, this had stock wheels that had been initially restored some time ago, had the trim rings, red center caps and lug nuts, these had older 16 year old tires as this had not been used except for local shows in Atlanta for a while, now the wheels are just redone again for show, then installed are the expensive Hankook Kinergy ST 205/7065/R15 radial blackwall tires are just mounted and balanced (LINK), this looks great and now really drives wonderful, has a spare wheel and tire, brakes and suspension just checked (LINK),

top/glass history: since this 1974 TR6 never left the Atlanta area, this still had the factory ‘XXX Triplex laminated’ windshield, really in remarkably good shape but not perfect with only a slight bit of end delamination, this writer believes this is more valuable than a replacement unit, very hard to find like this, the car was received with the original Baker Motor Co. black reflector strip top, now this full top unit is just now  replaced by a very expensive Moss Motors brand new reflector top with the install being accomplished by our in house specialty team, (LINK), their great handwork is top notch with said value of such an install about $1600 retail today, also they redid the front stock Chestnut seats so they look really good and ‘as factory’, just like the Data Tag and matches the bill of sale,

top/interior: when this rare very original Atlanta car was bought by Fraser Dante after finding this a local British Car Day Show, this still had the original factory black reflector top still on the car, amazing, now our talented interior team has hand installed the Moss Motors correct factory black reflector top and window, this is about a $1700 process today, (LINK), they also checked out the correct chestnut bucket seated with headrest interior, this area possibly is factory original, they replaced one seat panel, now the bucket seated very correct interior is in fine condition, has the correct factory cognac carpet, has the safety belts, uprated radio with back speakers, this had the original factory wood dash when received, was correct but tired, now said original wood dash is fully restored in house with many hours of hand sanding, then prep and stain, then cleared and then buffed, (LINK), clear gauges work, now all this dash area really looks great, all the very clear gauges work, here is an effort to make the driver feel great, new black visors (LINK) trunk fully detailed (LINK),

Summary: Fraser Dante worked to bring this car to a even higher than received, restoration work is now just completed for Spring 2020, with the great chassis and so solid a frame, knowledge that this is an Atlanta car with the last owner from 1984 with lots of records, expensive reflective black top just installed, brand new radial tires, Original Handbook/Passport to Service (LINK), this is a rare find indeed, our in house team is happy to speak about this car, offered at only $23,950
