I am in Ann Arbor, MI. USA (West side of AA)
Here is your chance to own a great looking, unique, fun affordable classic British roadster.
I have updated the information and have compression numbers now 160-165 for all 6 cylinders. I updated the phone number etc. And now have better pictures, descriptions, (underside, trunk, under hood, pix etc.) to help do this the right way without folks getting incorrect information.
Hagerty might estimate this as a class 3 or 4 car. It has green exterior and tan interior. You can go to their website to see their value approximation for the car.
They have great car evaluation overviews on their site to help you.
I have been able to spend some time driving the car the last few months and and got more and better pictures. Its been a blast. I can now better help potential buyers. People have called with many questions and I wasnt prepared to answer them correctly, so I clearly need to do some homework to properly communicate about both cars.
Ideally we want to sell both cars as a package deal for 1966 TR4a (94K miles) and 1968 TR250 (44K miles). Its hard to assess the right value for the TR250 since it was clearly restored before my family bought the car ~1994.
Anyone that is interested in taking both cars for a fair market price will help us take care of everything at once. I have better pictures of all the TR250 parts on the car as well as all the TR4a parts that are stored in the attic.
The 1966 TR4a seems like a condition 5-7 type car and might only be worth $2K-$4K for the TR4a due to lots of parts, 5 doors, 2 trunks, 2 hoods, etc. the frame/body is rusty even if the fenders etc. are ok. Therefore, my selling price is negotiable and I am trying to do the right thing for my family and the buyer. For convenience to us we would like to find one buyer for everything (ie the deal could include the TR250 and include TR4a parts and car and lots of spare doors, hoods, fenders, guages, etc.) As you know owners of TRs hoard parts,...just in case.
TR4a was driven hard by my dad in the 1960s/early 1970s. IN, IL, OH, year round...rusty chassis/frame. But all parts are off the car and ready for restoration with lots of spares.
But the TR250 he purchased ~1994 wasn't driven hard and only during the sunny/warm weather. It was definitely worked on and fixed up before we got it. In the last 20 years we had brakes, water, pump, fuel pump, petronix ignition, etc. One receipt showed over $3k done on carbs, brakes, etc in 2010. Decent sony stereo head unit and custom speaker box on rear parcel shelf. (my brother and I in 2011)
With the better documentation I have now, I can help you understand both cars that are now available for your consideration. I need to do the right thing for my family and I dont want to deceive buyers nor get swindled by unscrupulous car flippers (you know them when you speak to them)
Thanks for your understanding.
