TR-6 Restoration (#3)
The frame looks just as sound from the top (yes, this was a body/frame car--must have been one of the last).
New bushing kit for the rack & pinion is on order.
104 raging horsepower from a 2.5 liter six. When you think about it, that was
about what you could expect from an OHV non-crossflow head with siamesed
ports, at the height of the pre-injection desmogged days. A carb rebuild kit is
on order. High hopes for what's seen when the head comes off, because it
started and ran fine with no smoke before purchase.
Off we go for bodywork and paint! Heavy lifting by Wolf (left) and Cory (right).
