Description


The Triumph TR6 was manufactured for seven years from 1969 and by the time production came to an end in July 1976, it was the best-seller of the TR range. The bodywork closely resembled that of the previous model, the Triumph TR5, however the front and rear were squared off and all TR6s featured inline six-cylinder engines. For the US market, the engine was fitted with carburettors whilst, for other world markets including the UK, the TR6 was fitted with fuel-injection. It featured a four-speed manual gearbox, independent rear suspension, rack and pinion steering, 15 wheels and tyres, pile carpet on the floors and boot, bucket seats and a full complement of instruments. In total 94,619 TR6s were built of which 86,249 were sold overseas and only 8,370 were sold in the UK.
Originally registered on 4th September 1970, this TR6 presents in delightful condition throughout. With four former keeper and relatively low mileage, it is clear this Triumph has been well cared for throughout its 51 years on British roads. A genuine UK example and still bearing the original fuel injection system which has been overhauled recently, other mechanical work carried out recently includes rebuilding the engine and overhauling the braking system. All the bills for the work carried out are in the history folder, which includes a V5C registration document; a Heritage Certificate and an MoT test certificate valid until 24th March 2022. This 150bhp example is finished in green with black interior; the bodywork is in good order showing no signs of corrosion, the soft top is in good condition and she comes with a tonneau cover and a hardtop. This Triumph TR6 is a good genuine thoroughly useable example.
