*THIS LISTING IS BY SHERMAN AUTO SALES, INC. WE ARE A 70 YEAR OLD FAMILY DEALERSHIP THAT SPECIALIZES IN VINTAGE CARS, ANTIQUES, AND AUTOMOBILE MEMORABILIA.
*WE ARE LOCATED IN FENTON, MO. 63026. MY NAME IS MARK SHERMAN, (PRES. & OWNER) AND I WILL BE PLEASED TO DISCUSS THE CAR IN DETAIL WITH ANYONE. MY DIRECT NUMBER IS 314 920-2804.
*THIS 1976 TR6 IS A VERY TRUE AND REAL CAR. THIS ALSO HAS THE FACTORY HARD/TOP. MILEAGE IS BELIEVED TO BE ACTUAL. THERE IS NOT DOCUMENTATION, BUT FROM THE FAMILY HISTORY OF THE CAR AND THE FEELINGS OF THE SHOP THAT PERFORMED THE WORK, WE FELL IT IS A TRUE LOW MILEAGE CAR.
*THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THIS CAR HAS BEEN OFFERED FOR SALE.
*OUR COMPANY PURCHASED THIS CAR FROM THE ESTATE OF A DOCTOR ON 2/12/2015. THE DOCTOR WAS FROM OSCEOLA, MO. 63076. OWNERSHIP OF THE DOCTOR WAS FOR A PERIOD OF 18 YEARS. THAT IS SHOWN ON THE MISSOURI TITLE. I WAS TOLD BY THE FAMILY THE DOCTOR WAS A CAR PERSON THAT OWNED SEVERAL CARS AND THIS WAS HIS FAVORITE. THE PERSONALIZED PLATES THAT WERE KEPT BY THE FAMILY SAID "DOC".
*I HAVE A WONDERFUL RELATIONSHIP WITH A SHOP CALLED SPORTS CAR CENTRE IN FENTON, MO. MOST ALL OF THE WORK ON THIS CAR WAS PERFORMED BY THERE FACILITY. I HAVE RECEIPTS FOR ALL THE WORK PERFORMED, INCLUDING ONE RECEIPT THAT THE ORIGINAL FAMILY HAD DONE PRIOR TO OUR PURCHASE.
*THE FAMILY TOLD ME THE CAR WAS DRIVEN ON A REGULAR BASIS PRIOR TO THE PASSING OF THE DOCTOR ON 12/23/2012.
*SPORTS CAR CENTRE WOULD BE PLEASED TO TALK TO A PROSPECTIVE SINCERE CUSTOMER. THE OWNER OF THIS SHOP COMMENTED THAT THIS WAS A VERY SPECIAL CAR THAT WAS EXTREMELY SOLID.
*THE BEST WAY FOR ME TO DESCRIBE THIS CAR IS TO *1ST BE VERY SPECIFIC ABOUT THIS CAR. THE *2ND PORTION WILL BE WORKED PERFORMED. THE *3RD SECTION WILL COVER DETAILS OF IMPERFECTIONS THAT NEED TO BE NOTED. THIS WILL BE LISTED IN SECTIONS #1, #, & #3 AS FOLLOWS:
SECTION #1 THIS CAR WAS PURCHASED IN A VERY PRESENTABLE MANNER WITH THE FACTORY HARD/TOP INSTALLED ON THE CAR. THIS IS A 4-SPEED WITH/OUT OVER-DRIVE. THE CAR HAD BEEN STORED FOR APPROX. 3 YEARS. THE CAR RAN AND DROVE, BUT WAS IN NEED OF PROPER MAINTENANCE AND DETAILING.
*THE RELATIVE OF THE FAMILY THAT I DEALT WITH FELT THE MILEAGE WAS ACTUAL. I HAVE NO DOCUMENTATION TO PROVE THIS.
*THE CAR HAS HAD A VERY HIGH QUALITY COLOR CHANGE FROM THE ORIGINAL BLUE. THIS WAS ALL DONE YEARS AGO IN A VERY PROFESSIONAL MANNER. WE DID "NO PAINT WORK" AT ALL ON THIS CAR AT ANY TIME.
*SPORTS CAR CENTRE WENT OVER THIS CAR IN GREAT DETAIL. THEY SUPPORTED THE FEELING THAT THE MILEAGE WAS ACTUAL. ALL SMOG PUMP ITEMS WERE STILL IN PLACE. THE SPEEDOMETER REDUCER UNDER THE HOOD, WHICH THEY SAY GOES BAD WITH MILEAGE WAS STILL FACTORY EQUIPPED. SOME OF THE ORIGINAL HOSES WERE STILL ON THE ENGINE. THE CAR STAYED WITH THIS SHOP AS THEY WORKED IT IN AS TIME PERMITTED WITH OTHER COMMITMENTS THEY HAD.
SECTION #2 WORK PERFORMED WITH ALL RECEIPTS SINCE 1/23/2015 - 6/29/2016. (THESE RECEIPTS TOTAL $10,248.00 AND ARE AVAILABLE FOR VIEWING. THEY HAVE BEEN PLACED INA BINDERTHAT WILL REMAIN WITH THE CAR).

*THERE WERE OTHER MISC. TICKETS FOR SMALL ITEMS THAT WERE NEVER CHARGED AGAINST THIS CAR.
*THE MECHANIC FROM SPORTS CAR CENTRE WROTE UP A 2 PAGE EVALUATION OF REPAIRS THAT IS ALSO IN THIS FILE, DESCRIBING THERE WOK IN DETAIL. THIS IS A VERY ESTABLISHED SHOP WITH A WONDERFUL REPUTATION.
*I HAVE PERSONALLY DRIVEN THIS CAR OVER 800 MILES. THIS GAVE ME A CHANCE TO DO ADDITIONAL REPAIRS NEEDED AS LISTED ABOVE AND AT THE SAME TIME TO BRING THIS CAR BACK TO PROPER STANDARDS. TAKING TIME AND PUTTING MILEAGE ON A CAR THAT HAS BEEN STORED IS VERY IMPORTANT BEFORE BEING ABLE TO REPRESENT & OFFER A CAR FOR SALE.
*THE MOTOR STARTS VERY EASILY WITH JUST PULLING THE CHOKE. *THE ENGINE IS IS VERY STRONG AND HAS NO SMOKE AT ALL. *THE TRANSMISSION IS VERY SMOOTH AND QUIET THROUGH ALL THE GEARS. THE GEARBOX AND DIFFERENTIAL MATCH THE LOW MILEAGE.
*THE FRONT END WITH THE NEW STEERING RACK, ALIGNMENT, AND TIRES IS VERY TIGHT AND DRIVES VERY TRUE AND STRAIGHT.
SECTION #3 IMPERFECTIONS THAT ARE A VERY IMPORTANT OF THIS LISTING. THEY ARE AS FOLLOWS:
*UNDER THE HOOD COMPARTMENT THAT WAS NOT WASHED OR CLEANED, THE FENDER WELL AREAS WERE PAINTED FLAT BLACK WHEN THE RESTORATION WAS DONE YEARS AGO. THERE WILL BE VERY SMALL AREAS WHERE THE BLUE DOES SHOW.
*THE UNDERSIDE OF THE DASH WILL ALSO SHOW SOME OF THE ORIGINAL BLUE COLOR.
*I WAS NEVER GIVEN THE KEY TO THE DOOR LOCK OR DECK-LID LOCK.
*THE TURN SIGNAL FLASHER WAS REPLACED WITH AN AMERICAN STYLE ROUND SIZE STYLE. THIS IS TUCKED NEATLY AWAY AS THE ORIGINAL HOLDER IS SQUARE.
*THE GLOVE BOX DOOR HAS A PLASTIC SUPPORT ROD THAT WAS NEVER ATTACHED TO THE GLOVE BOX DOOR WHEN THE WOOD WAS REPLACED.
*THE PLASTIC DEFROSTER KNOB WHEN PULLING OUT WILL COME OFF THE STEM.
*THE RADIO DID PLAY, BUT AFTER IT CAME BACK FROM CLEANUP, THE LIGHT CAME ON, BUT THE RADIO DID NOT PLAY.
*ON THE CONVERTIBLE TOP, THE SNAP POSITIONS ARE VERY SNUG AND TAKES A LITTLE PATIENCE TO PROPERLY FASTEN.
*ON THE CONVERTIBLE TOP, THERE WERE TWO SMALL TEARS THAT WERE LIGHTLY SPLIT FROM BEING FOLDED AWAY. THESE WERE-REPAIRED BY GATEWAY AUTO TRIM ON AN ABOVE TICKET.
*THE H/TOP HAS ONE INSIDE DECORATIVE BLACK PLASTIC COVERS MISSING WHERE THE REAR BOLT GOES THROUGH.
*THE TONNEAU COVER IS IN THE TRUNK. I HAVE NEVER UNFOLDED IT OR INSPECTED IT. IT DOES APPEAR TO BE VERY FRESH.
*THE SPEEDOMETER FACE PLATE HAS SLIGHTLY SHIFTED UNDER THE GLASS AND THIS ALLOWS LIGHT TO SHINE THROUGH WHEN THE HEADLIGHTS ARE ON. SPORTS CAR CENTRE SAID THIS WAS COMMON, BUT WAS DIFFICULT TO MAKE THE REPAIR.
*THERE ARE A FEW MINOR PAIN CHIPS THAT SHOULD BE TOUCHED UP. THIS IS VERY MINIMAL. I DID NOT HAVE PAINT FOR THIS.
*THE FUEL GAUGE DOES NOT OPERATE PROPERLY. MOST OF THE TIME IT WILL SHOW EMPTY TO 1/2 WAY ON THE GAUGE. A FEW TIMES AFTER FILLING UP, IT WOULD TRAVEL TO FULL.
*THERE ARE A FEW VERY MINOR OIL DRIPS WHEN SITTING FOR A PERIOD OF TIME. THIS IS MINIMAL AND NOT BAD AT ALL.
**IN CONCLUSION I HAVE TRIED TO BE VERY CRITICAL OF THIS CAR. THE REPAIRS SPENT, BROUGHT THIS CAR TO A VERY GOOD LEVEL, SPORTS CAR CENTRE SAID THEY WORK ON MANY TR'S AND THIS WAS ONE OF THE MOST SOLID THEY HAD SEEN. I HAVE HAD PERSONAL EXPERIENCE DRIVING THIS CAR FOR 800 PLUS MILES AND AM VERY COMFORTABLE IN REPRESENTING THIS AS THE SELLER.
*I FEEL THIS CAR IS PRICED VERY FAIRLY. IF A PROSPECTIVE BUYER WILL READ THIS LISTING IN DETAIL, GO THROUGH THE PICTURES, & TAKE THE TIME TO TALK TO MYSELF PERSONALLY OR PREFERABLY THE SHOP THAT PERFORMED THE MAJORITY OF THE WORK - THIS IS A "NO" DISAPPOINTMENTCAR. (THE CAR IS BEAUTIFUL).
