Beautiful "body off" restoration completed at the close of the last century (1999) by David Cunnew in South Australia.
Commission No.: TS45085 O
Engine Number: TS 45909 E
EB Number 45434 : Mulliners No. 1050674

The car was briefly owned (in S.A.) by John Williams and then Ian Burman- from whom I purchased it in March 2006.
It has enjoyed success in beauty contests, where my contribution since owning it, has only been the polishing cloth!

"My enthusiasm for 'wind in the hair' motoring
started in 1967 with an Austin Healey BN1
I bought my first TR in 1979. It is now owned by
Michael Carr
I joined the register in 1979
My 'Lifetime's 15 minutes of Fame' came at the Formula One GP of 1999 when I drove Eddie Irvine , the eventual winner for Ferrari, in the pre-race Driver's Parade. Since then, Eddie and I have not caught the public's attention!"
Chris's previous car was a 1958 Model (shown below) - Commission No. TS 37635
This car was sold to the late Mychael Carr
