Last week, i went to germany to buy a fiat barchetta , after some days of searching and driving in germany , i found one ..... buyed it.
Here are some photos with the seller garage ..... a very happy man , if you ask me
so ...it was like this :
searching for a car , driving on german autobahn :
arriving to seller place ....looking arround and wondering ...how can any1 have all
I had to make 2 photos with he;s cars ( how lame is that ? )
Neat collection. Wasn't the Tr250 a 4 cylinder with more advanced body similar to the front body look of a tr6 ? Always liked the huge wheels on the tr6's -esp compared to most other cars of its vintage. Of course, liking is not loving like the x so never drove one!
The TR250 was a 6 pot... Same as the TR6 and TR5. Basically the TR250 was the TR5 built for the North American market... but instead of the Lucas FI that England and Europe got, the NA version came with twin Strombergs (and a lot less hp).
The body was virtually identical to the TR4A...
How do they drive?... They are a hoot if you're into vintage handling... I've got a TR6... and the noises the 6 makes are absolutely wonderful...
AKA, TR-5 which eventually became the TR-6. It's basically a straight six in a TR-4A_ish body.
Very few TR250's in the US compared to TR-6.
Here is an update on the TR-6 project. It's RATCO frame with a Nissan R200 LSD diff. I just set up the half shafts with wooden sticks and cut down the Nissan Q45 half shafts which will be sent out for spline machine work on the ends.
It's a huge amount of work to get a TR6 up to where it will be mostly problem free. A victim of British Leyland cost cutting, a very old design produced to too long and labor union problems. Otherwise their marketing in the US market is well done.
