    Wondering if this was from a collision; but owner/seller hasn't responded, yet.
    Badly worn tires were the norm with TR6s in the day [ of their production ], especially due to rear misalignment. No accidents need have happened! The other thing that was the rule with them is wheel hop and shimmy! The worst would be the '250s and '69 TR6 with their especially flimsy wheels, in addition to alignment going off the rails in the rear. IRS being relatively rare in those days I reckon most shops didn't know how to deal with them.

    My recollection, anyway.

      • Until the mid or late 70 model, the indentation for the air cleaner did not run the full length of the wheel arch.

      Looks just like the wheel arch on my '250, i.e. the lower part of the notch goes all the way to the front ( had to check! ) so I reckon it's correct for a '69.

        Tom look at both of your cars. Jim is correct...the notch should only be about 2/3 of the way on the wheel arch. Still a nice car for certain

          Of course it is! I was looking at Jim's pic of his ( red ) wheel arch; that's the same as mine. The green one is indeed a later one.

          I should add, the longer notch is more friendly to Weber DCOEs as it permits long air filters.
