Rustybug are delighted to announce that Chris and Ruth`s fully restored TR6 has won the award of `Best Standard TR6`, at the TR International – meaning that it is the best standard TR6 in the world at the moment!
The old TR6 was brought to us about two years ago and with a lot of care and technical restoration, our Rustybug team, along with its proud owners – Chris and Ruth have managed to bring it up to the fine specimen that it is today.
From Aubergine Shell to Wedgwood Blue Beast
When the TR6 was first brought into the workshop, it was a poorly looking aubergine shell. But with extensive restoration work from our team as well as a lot of care and attention from Chris and Ruth, the final result was the stunning wedgwood blue beast which we are so proud of today.
We carried out a full nuts and bolts restoration of the car, completely taking it apart, blast cleaning the body, as well as completely cleaning every other part, repainting everything, and replacing as many of the old (unusable) parts and fittings as possible with original parts and fittings.
TR International Weekend
The TR International weekend at Malvern is paradise for all TR car lovers, classic car enthusiasts, or just those who appreciate the art and craft of restoring and looking after classic cars.
Our TR6 gained an impressive 657 points, winning first prize in the Concours D`Eligance 2017 – a staggering achievement for all of our team at the Rustybug workshop in Skelton, North Yorkshire as well as its owners.
