Dr. Alan Simon of Oxnard Shores, California owns the pristine Chassis No. 1007 featured here. Alan first saw the car advertised in Hemmings about 23 years ago when it was offered for sale in Oregon.
The coachwork was in very good condition and just a bare minimum of body preparation was necessary before the car was painted a light cream color. The wire wheels were painted to match the tan interior. Everyone who sees the car is amazed at its beautiful condition despite being over 45-years-old and the chromework really has to be seen to be appreciated. Alan describes it as 'show quality' and I would have to agree. It appears very substantial and you can tell the many hours which went into the preparation of raw parts before they received the bright triple nickel plating.
Today the car is back in Alan Simon's garage awaiting its next adventure and what happens next
is anybody's guess although Dr. Simon has hinted that he wished the car could be enjoyed by
someone who really had the time to show this rare beauty off. How about you, maybe driving down
by the ocean with the wind in your hair and the little TR2 engine never missing a beat as you
rekindle all those memories of a time when cars were built for sheer driver enjoyment.
