Triumph TR6 - Hard Top - Best Way to Sell?

Hello folks...

In BC (Delta area) I have a restored, French Blue, Hard Top that I do not think I will use plus, I'm in Ontario and I think it will cost $500 to ship it here. I'm thinking of selling it. What publications would you recommend? The mag I get is RagTop, the club magazine for the Toronto Triumph Club so the readership is primarily Ontario based.

Thank you,

Ken

Note. The top was a factory original for my car [76 6], was taken down to bare metal, then primed and painted Code 126. The finishing / attachment parts such as a headliner if there should be one, are missing. If there's interest I'll send pix.

Big shame you could not get it back. Anyway try Len Drake (Drakes Motors) 250-763-0883 lendrake@shaw.ca

Ken,
Used Victoria or used Vancouver.com are some good local places to advertise, also the Western Driver magazine has a British car parts section. Kijijji . com (sp) is another good one to use as well.

Thanks Mitch, Don. I'll check those options. Les, Len was not in need of one at this time.

Sold... actually I traded it for parts and some help with suspension. My car rides like a buckboard so I need to do a make-over. Poly bushes, coils, shock conversion, yada...

Thanks for all the advice!

I feel so bad that you have to do all this stuff after having a car built for you ! it's not right !
Hope we can help along the way..

Hey Charlie... if I focus on how badly this thing went down I get too upset so I'm moving on as long as weather permits. I'm also doing some legal research too re compensation. I think I've spent $5,000+ on repairs and parts (over what I paid for the car) so far to get the car safe and closer to where it should have been. Still have a long way to go to suit me though. It's a bad scene but I love working on the car and learning about all this stuff. Trying to stay positive. Thanks for the support!
