I found this car as 25+ year barn (warehouse) find and now have it running. It was a nice weekend a couple of weeks ago and I took it out for an extended drive.

Beautiful. Love the HD and Lightnings in that body style.

I have a 1999 Expedition with the SVT Lightning drivetrain with the Lightning front clip and steel cowl hood like yours. It's a sleeper for sure.

Nice TR6! Interesting backstory, and love the Jasmine color.

I finally got one, FJ40, 1982

It's taken me well almost a lifetime, but now I have one. It's really rough and I already know there's rust under that diamond plate. I just ordered a 2 inch lift kit (drop kit). It has 4.5 inches now which is too high for the wife and I. The engine was just redone on it.
It was listed with a soft top, but I had to have the hard top!
Now looking for a body shop in central Alabama.

My own FJ40 looks rougher than yours, but is structurally and mechanically very solid and has been a hoot to own. It's a great "back to basics" off road truck and ,within reason, I'm not concerned about damaging it. When not off road, it's a fun occasional driver and Cars & Coffee ride. I'm biased, but I find a truck that's "experienced" somewhat more interesting than a full resto which never leaves the pavement.

I'd urge you to fix what has to be fixed, and enjoy it for what it is now!

Fun ride. My Dad had a dark green 73 Tr6. First car I ever drove. He kept the car until the mid 80's.

Nice.

The reason I have a Spitfire is that my wife’s ex boyfriend had had a TR6, back in the late 70’s or early 80s...when a friend of mine wanted to sell his Spitfire, she said I should get it, thinking it would be just like the TR6. Hmmm...

BTW, I did have a ‘71 240Z back in the day—those were pretty much direct mechanical copies of the TR6 (although the body looked completely different).

Here is my '72 TR6. My dad bought this in 1991 for $4300. Runs like a top.

Kids are finally old enough for Xmas gifts that dad likes.
Got our 16y/o son straight pipes, racing stripes and a front spoiler for his car for Xmas.
Spent a couple days doing father/son project.....priceless.
