The cars hasthree flaws that I need to mention:
1. The Mimosa Yellow color isone of themost popular original TR6 colors, utthedoor tag indicatesthe carwas originallypainted red from the factory, he paint job was done properly and showsnoevidence of the colorchange.
2.The chromebumpers are in good driver quality condition, ut should be re-chromed to bring them to show quality.
3.The passenger seat has a small 1/8 inch long puncture in the vinyl, hat was repaired and can only be detected if pointed out from a very close distance.
