EKK 304K has been with its last owner in Leeds since 2009 and over the past ten years has covered over 8000 miles.

Invoices with the last owner total around £4500 and work included new injectors, new HT leads, regularly replaced service items, electronic ignition, new fuel pump, re-conditioned heater, rebuilt cylinder head and new rear bumper.
From 2000-2009 the TR6 was in Sussex and this owner spent a considerable amount having the TR6 restored.

Whilst the engine and gearbox were removed, the gearbox was stripped and treated to new first and second gear hub and all new syncro's.
Having had thousands of pounds spent on a thorough mechanical restoration, it's no surprise this TR6 drives superbly and has regularly toured without hesitation. The engine is fabulous and completely smooth with impressive performance and exceptional oil pressure. The TR6 feels quick, responsive and in the two weeks prior to coming into stock, drove to us faultlessly from Leeds on two occasions. This is a real drivers car and its fantastic fun and importantly, proven reliability. EKK 304K has a very smart, tidy well presented interior, very good hood, bright chrome work, clean well presented engine bay and having been treated to new floor pans when restored, has a clean, structurally excellent underside. The body has nice straight panels, the older paintwork is of a very good standard and has no serious corrosion issues. This isn't a show car, it's a long distance touring TR6 but the minor blemishes and imperfections on paintwork do not detract from what is a really strong, honest car that is ready to tour Europe as the previous owners have enjoyed. This is an excellent value, matching numbers UK 150BHP car with overdrive that is really well sorted and great to drive.
