Dan, et.al. This was probably an aftermarket lashup. But I'm sure Dan saw
them. It depends on how different the body changed (from the TR4 to the
behind the cockpit. Triumph mad the surrey top for the TR4, TR4A, TR5, and
TR250 but they thought that the TR6 body had changed enough to fabricate a
different "hardtop" for the TR6. But someone could have figured out a way
to fit a TR4 "surrey top" to a TR6. As we all know, PO's have done weirder
BTW - check out Piggott's book "Original Triumph TR" (p.101 for TR6 and
various pages for TR4 etc.) for pictures of both tops.
