“White Knight”
50 Years of Ownership!
I bought the car for $500 when in the US Navy 1967. The car has always been on the road. Many fun experiences;
Almost a carpet fire with muffler leak at rear bench (1970)
Swapped TR-4 transmission to get syncho in first gear.(1971)
Cracked crankshaft in half near output to flywheel (1973)
Two blown head gaskets pumping out water from the tail pipe.(1973-1976)
Negative earth blue tooth radio installed in Positive earth car! (2001)
Now that I've retired...repaired, fixed EVERYTHING!
NO LEAKS!
Never fully restored (at one time)...just loved and in top notch shape.
