1971 TR6, Comm. No CC57601L, Owned by Beki Jones,
TRF Accounting, Black with Gold Factory Stripes
This car was purchased in the autumn of 1984 in Mars, Pennsylvania.  It needed a
full body-off restoration, starting with frame repairs.  It was originally brown but had
been painted red.  It came with a 1969 interior, including seats with fold-down
headrests.  Shortly after purchasing the TR6, the long restoration began in the small
back yard garage with most of the work being done by family.  The frame and body
were sandblasted.  Over the course of several years, almost every available body panel
was purchased to replace the rusty floors, sills, inner and outer fenders, valance panels,
trunk floor panels, deck panels, doors, trunk lid, and bonnet...should I continue?  The
frame was repaired where the trailing arms are mounted, and it was primed with epoxy
primer.
Looking to make it unique, the engine was completely rebuilt, modified with cam
and forty-over pistons.  A Monza free-flow double-pipe exhaust system was used to
give it a little extra HP and a deeper sound.  The suspension included competition
springs and gold Panasport racing wheels (The wheels were a gift from Big Sis)...Not to
mention every other bush, link, shim, bolt, washer, and nut!  Actually, there was very
little salvageable from the original car.  The only parts that were reused were the ones
that were unavailable at the time.  Besides my first-born, what wouldn't I have given
for new seat tracks and new window channels to name a few?!  The good news is that
If You Can Name It, It Probably Needed Replaced
Lots of Work Needed Here
