Triumph TR6 - Free Convertible Top

I have a TR6 convertible top c/w frame which I would be willing to give away to someone that could use it. The top itself is in decent shape with a couple of small rips that could be repaired. The windows are in good shape and not yellowed. At least this was it's condition when I folded it up and put it away some years ago. I suppose the frame would be the thing of real value though. The only catch would be that you would have to pick it up. I'm in Edmonton Alberta.

Hi Doug

I would love to have this (I have no top at all...) but no way I can pick up. Any chance you would consider shipping?

Cheers

Hi Alistair,
If there is a way for you to arrange and pay for the shipping, packing , etc. and all I would have to do is drop it off at the depot, I would do that. I would love it to go to someone that could really use it.

Hi Doug

I just called UPS and FedEx and they say that they could pack the top up if it was under 18 inches long, but over that they have no idea what to do. Maybe I just spoke to idiots, but I got the same answer from both, so it looks like I will have to pass on your very kind offer. Thanks anyway

Alistair,
My friend you've given up too easily. There's likely a packing/mailing company in Edmonton that'd welcome the business. Don't discount the bus or train. Don't know if Greyhound services that area, but they take oversize shipments sometimes. Good luck.

You're right, Doug (Baker). I will look in more depth tomorrow when the shipping companies open.

I have found a place where they will do all of the packing and shipping and the estimated total comes out to a bit less than the cost of a new top without a frame, so if you would be willing to drop it off (the address is 5328 Pak Mail, Calgary Tr Southbound, Edmonton, AB T6H 4J8) then I would be very grateful. If you e-mail me or let me know your e-mail address then we can sort out how I will pay you.

Cheers

Doug, if you still have this I'm definitely interested. I'm in Calgary
