You can follow the blue paint under the hood, where you’ll be delighted to see a neatly trimmed engine bay. The big 2.6 liter inline-six is smartly dressed with a painted valve cover and a pair of side-draft carburetors, all surrounded by that periwinkle blue paint that makes a fine backdrop. It fires easily and idles properly, and out on the open road, you’ll be tempted to run it up to redline in every single gear just to hear the muscular six sing its baritone song. The carbs have been properly tuned and synchronized, delivering a smooth flow of power with no stumbling or flat spots, and the 4-speed gearbox is a delight. Lots of new gear underneath, plus a new exhaust system, means you can own this TR6 with confidence, and it wears a set of recent 205/70/15 blackwall tires on beautiful chrome wire wheels.
