1972 TR6 Frame Off Restoration

Purchased new when he was in college, this one-owner car sat for many years with a stuck engine. Recently retired from an engineering career, it was time to make it better than new.

We found a couple of pistons stuck in their bores. After we rebuilt the engine and installed it and everything else under the hood, the owner drove it home for the first time in a decade.
