Peter,

None. It says 'the Sabrina engine never made it into production'.

My question is - "where do you get spares for the engine"?

If that is keeping you from buying this car, you will not be a good future owner.
Someone keeping such a unique car must be prepared to make parts from scratch, or have them made. It is not as if there are parts shops everywhere like there is for certain vintage Jaguar models Very Happy

As the owner of an eighty year old Jaguar I could give you a list as long as your arm of parts not available from the Jaguar parts suppliers. As for the TR it's just the two extra zeros in the price that are preventing me from wanting it.

Peter, I was not thinking about your SS. You show on your website that you took great effort to re-create a lot of parts, great workmanship.
Not, I was thinking more about E-types and such (knowing that lowdrag is the owner of such a magnificent car) Very Happy
