    Was that the one which was up for grabs about 3-4 years ago around Lorient and Quimper? ie the GT6 based one?

    You and me both kiddo, it sort of looks familiar, I looked at one in Lorient which had been for sale originally in Quimper -- at that point it was in a state, tried to knock the price down, but i think it sold to some unsuspecting frenchman!

    BRF 2J was mine from early 2014 to late 2016. It had a TR6 engine but on carburettors instead of fuel injection. Brilliant car but no weather protection and living at that time near the end of rainy stormy Cornwall meant it wasn’t very practical. Also it was registered as a Triumph which I feared would cause me problems eventually.

    Bob Copping had planned to use it for competition until he became ill. Ray Bater’s brother Colin had it and did an amazing bodywork and paint restoration in the bodyshop he managed in Devon. Mechanically It was a bit of a dog but I got it all sorted. It went like a rocket!

    I sold it to a charming Englishman named Vic who lived in the Dordogne area of France. The French are apparently more relaxed about such details as registration.

    It looks pretty much as when I had it apart from different the steering wheel and wicker basket.

    Someone needs to tell whomever buys the blue one, to ditch that boy-racer dustbin exhaust.
