1973 TR6 for sale, excellent driver, thousands spent on restoration!


This is a really nice 1973 Triumph Tr6, #CF676U. Engine number is CF823UE. We’ve known this car for a while and we’ve done restoration service work totally more than $8000 on this car. Tires, carpet and a host of other parts are brand new. Previous owners have spent thousands as well, all documented in a giant stack of receipts that will travel with the car.

Included in the file are receipts documenting the engine was rebuild in 1989. The machining and engine parts receipts are included. In 1993 the bodywork and paint was done. So the car was easy to buy when it was offered to me, when the owner decided to get a new boat. It’s a great driver that looks great, with lots of new interior parts too. Odometer stopped working recently; the car shows 51,074 miles on the clock.

Most recently, we replaced the clutch with the best one available (“magic clutch”), as well as the master and slave cylinder. Rear springs, all shocks and all hydraulics are new too. The car is fully sorted; call if you are looking for a great driver for your summer!

I will post the underside pictures shortly-I didn’t get a chance this week to get the car on the lift for photos!

Stunning 1969 MGC for sale, original colors, matching engine, low mileage, new video!

1969 MGC

This is my personal MGC. It has the original engine as confirmed by British Heritage Motor Trust. “Engine number recorded for chassis number G-CN1-U/4357-G is 29GA-RU-H/1499 and the colour is Black with black interior trim and a black soft top.”

The C is a delightful high-speed cruiser. She has a wonderful 145 HP big Healey based 2.9 liter seven main bearing six cylinder engine stuffed under the hood, along with twin brake boosters and torsion bar suspension and 15 inch wheels (instead of the B’s 14s) and electric overdrive. It’s a rare car with delightful bulges in its original aluminum bonnet. For comparison purposes, a 1969 MGB was advertised with just 91 Horsepower.

I have loved and admired this 1969 MGC since I acquired it in February 2013. This car was one of the first 1969 roadsters. The series was launched in 1967 just as Austin Healey stopped big Healey production. I am not sure if any landed in the USA before 1968. 1969 was the last year for the C, with a total of 8,999 built of all MGC GTs and Tourers. But how many are left? When have you seen one lately? This is the only one I have seen recently with the correct original seats. By the way, these came with octagon-shaped safety knock spinners when new-the prior owner put on the more attractive two-eared type, they look cooler, but that’s easy to change if it bothers you.

We’ve done a lot to maintain and preserve it, (I have all our records, call and I will read through them for you). We have recently put richer needles in the original SU carbs. I have driven this car very little and need more space as we expand our building so I am reluctantly putting this great classic car up for sale.

This is a special car, very rare but in particular, I have never seen another in such nice condition. I believe this to be an original 37k mile car with original paint. We restored this paint job when I got the car four years ago, by wet sanding and buffing it to the very high luster you see in the photos here.

Current indicated mileage is 37,732. I purchased the car in February of 2013 with with 37,602 miles, so I only drove the car 130 miles! The last owner put 6600 miles on the car during that 20 year period of ownership, a figure confirmed by the records with the car from their purchase in 1993. It is of course difficult to confirm that the indicated mileage is original, but based on information reported by the prior owner, and based on the lack of wear on the original components of this car, I feel strongly this is the actual mileage on this vehicle. You can see various mileage receipts in the paperwork with the car. I have shown some of these in the last photo in the gallery, notably, prior owner notes of annual mileage as well as receipts from service shops (primarily for oil changes) that fit in sequence.

It shines beautifully, the chrome wires are also recent, and everything  about this car is nice. Interior is correct and extremely well-preserved, with the original seat belts and a somewhat modern stereo, with removable speakers in the footwells behind the seats. The car comes with the original tonneau and a good top with a zip down rear window that appears to be about ten years old.

64K mile 1971 Volvo P1800E for sale, overdrive!

This Volvo P1800 #184363034961 has just 64,000 miles and drives wonderfully, with a four speed transmission, aftermarket sunroof and factory electric overdrive. It has the original engine and fuel injection, and starts and runs beautifully. It was driven sporadically by the last owner who had the car since about 2000, when receipts place mileage at about 60,000. Thus the car has traveled just 4000 miles in the last 17 years. All service records are included since that time and the car was maintained with no expense spared to keep the car in excellent mechanical shape. Note the recent new front brake calipers and brake lines.

I bought this car for my personal collection. It’s solid and I love the lines of this striking and unusual classic. I just haven’t had time to enjoy it, and since I need the space, I have decided to pass this one on to someone who enjoy it.

The car was repainted dark green over the original code 104 turquoise. The paint is very good and shines beautifully. Chrome and trim is also in very nice condition. The engine bay is very clean and the underside is nice and solid. Overdrive works nicely. This car is a lot of fun to drive.

This car presents beautifully! The interior would be the next place to invest in restoration, although it is quite serviceable as is. There are a few cracks in replacement ABS dash board cover, so one might remove the dash and recover it with the original pad, which is easily available. The seats and foam are also older, which makes this car a candidate for seat restoration. All those interior parts are readily available from vintage Volvo parts specialists.

The exterior of the car looks so good and it runs so well, in many ways this is the ideal car that allows you to restore the interior at your own pace while you enjoy it. Or drive it as is, but either way, the body is nice and the car looks great. The price is $17,995. I can’t think of many classic cars this unique, this head-turning, (with overdrive and fuel injection) for this price!
