: Hi David, sounds like an interesting project. There were a few originally fitted with TR6 engines which must have gone like stink as there is not much weight in a Tripper. As far as I`m aware none of them took off but i wouldn`t mind betting the steering goes light at high speeds........Martin

I could imagine that as i owned a TR6 a few years ago..Considering the TR was like a lorry in comparison.Hefty chassis ,then a tub ,then bodywork.
Any historic car has a market value now so using anything like that for a donor is prohibitive.
From research i have seen Fiat coupes with 200bhp power go for 500 ish..Well at the moment!
