    Jerry Dorr's 512 Project for sale

    I just went up to Jerry Dorr's house to see his finished TR and his unfinished 512TR kit. I thought I would take a few photos for all of you to see. His car is for sale. It needs paint and put back together. Since he has two of them, on finished and one under construction, it will be easy to show you the before and after photos. I personally think the unfinished 512 TR will eventually become a first class show car. This cars preparation was done by some people who knew what they were doing.

    Jerry's wife says he needs to clean up the garage, so the unfinished one has to go. Jerry said since she is very attractive and he loves her, he will do what he can to get it done.

    I wish I had time to take on another project.

    First the basic stuff.

    His car has a rare flat floor configuration. This provides the platform to install a close to Ferrari perfect interior.

    Coil over shock rear suspension. The frame has been made wider to use stock swing arms.

    The engine compartment is professionally welded and ready for the power plant of your choice. Note the custom made shock towers and side walls of the extended frame.

    The frame has been extended and the rear section dropped to lower the cockpit area. Most of the great TR kits have this done so the roof line flows toward the rear and OEM 1/4 windows can be used. It lowers the seat and floor pan about 2 inches.

    The car is set up for an extended windshield that is included in the sale of his kit (one of the windshields ordered from Trevor a few years back).

    Rear view of Jerry's unpainted 512 TR. Jerry has all of the patterns for you to fabricate the rear grill. He uses Nissan tail lights behind the grill. They look very close to the real 512 TR.

    The rear of Jerry's finished TR, note the vents along the sail panel. A 512 TR does not have them.

    Passenger side view of Jerry's unfinished 512 TR. Notice the door - fender gaps. The body is very straight. I would seal it in primer, block it one more time and paint it the color of choice. M300 Ferrari red!
