Rob's TR in 2010
The car won the 2005 Brisbane TR Register Concourse as winner of the Concourse Class. The car was then sold to Frank Bourke of Cowra
NSW in December 2006 and was placed on full NSW rego. In 2007 it won first in Road Class at the TR Register Concourse in Port Macquarie.

Previous History By Eric Carter
Purchased from Colin Kidd (Sydney) December 12, 1998. The car has been in
storage since he bought it in 1982 and to his knowldge unused for the previous 15 years.

Bodywork & Chassis
After working a number of years after hours I finally completed the bodywork
ready for my spray painter. While the body was being painted the chassis was
dismantled and as no repairs were required it was sandblasted and painted in 2 pack satin black.

Suspension
Everything that was taken off the chassis was renewed or reconditioned.

Engine & Gearbox
The engine has been completely reconditioned with a big block Chevrolet rear
oil seal conversion. Motor has been completely balanced and a sedan overdrive
gearbox was installed with little modification. The radiator has been re-cored leaving the crank hole
and a 5 bladed fan added.

Electrical
Headlights, tail lights, rear blinkers and park lights were all renewed including wiring loom and a lead post 12v battery.

Trim
All interior was re trimmed in black connolly leather with black piping, new tonneau covers and soft top.
Side curtains and frames were repaired, powder coated and reassembled.

Brightware
Front bar and windscreen surround were repaired and all other brightware was either rechromed or renewed

Accessories
Luggage Rack, Smiths Heater, Clip on air scoop under radiator, Mesh headlight guards, and Lucas driving and fog lights
