Listed on consignment for our client in Anderson, SC.

No - it's not a Tesla, but I couldn't select this particular make and model.


This car has undergone a complete nut and bolt restoration over the past two years. The goal during restoration was to create a fast, reliable, excellent handling TR6 that maintained the purpose and aura of the original car. If you are a purist read no further as this car is far from original, if you are someone that appreciates purposeful upgrades to maximize a platform please read on. No expense was spared on this car, it has been well sorted and is ready for the next owner to enjoy.

The restoration began at a shop called Hot Rods 101 located in Upstate, SC. The body was separated from the from the frame and both were media blasted to bare metal. The frame was in excellent shape and checked for symmetry/crash damage and checked out very nicely. The mounting pins for the differential were replaced and reinforced and the frame painted black. The body was also in excellent shape other than a fender that had been body worked, a rusty rear valence, and floors that had seen better days. The aforementioned body parts were all replaced with new metal, gaps aligned (better than factory) and the car was primed/painted using PPG base/clear coat. Final assembly of the car was completed and then sent to Flying Circus Motors in Durham, NC for sorting. Below is the build list for the restoration.
