1972 Triumph TR6. For your consideration. This is my 72 Triumph TR6. I started with a bare frame that was powder coated as were the suspension parts. It was assembled using stainless steel fasteners. It was sent to Gassman Automotive for an engine rebuild, Toyota 5 speed conversion and drive train installation. The body was painted with Chrysler’s Inferno Red Pearl and reassembled. The car was lowered, the rear suspension was upgraded with a shock in spring conversion and the brakes were upgraded to Wilwood calipers and disks. Antiroll bars were installed front and rear. The interior was reinstalled with new vinyl and Mazda Miata seats with speakers in the headrests. I hand made the dash and accents out of black walnut Russian burl. The engine HP was upgraded from 94 to 160 and modern fuel injection was added and disguised along with cruise control.

Here are some pics of my Hillman Hunter GLS 1972 (Holbay). I had been looking for one for many years and came across this one beside gairloch in western Scotland. I restored her over a three year period and completed on July 2018. All panels are original not pattern. Interior was completely redone to original colour as is paintwork. There aren’t many original Hunter GLS models left and I’m proud to have completed this one.
