Owner Comments 
The engine is redone, balanced and everything. The head has stainless steel valves, slightly bigger inlet and outlet. It runs beautifully, no holding back! Overdrive has been overhauled, jumps in like a dream. Gearbox, dif, all suspension parts etc. have been overhauled.

The TR was appraised October 20188. The expert has the replacement value set at 40, 000 euro (rapport).

The TR was bought and imported (SA) in 2002. It has been in maintenance its whole life in the Netherlands by heritage garages.
Since 2007 maintenance and upgrades was carried out by Hans Kooij (the best TR specialist in the Netherlands). He also carried most of the works.
Note: Under the hood is paint damage from spills of hydraulic oil.

Note: the TR is used!
