Description

1972 Triumph TR6 Roadster
Registration no. NWE 135K
Chassis no. CP75751O
Engine no. CP075701HE

The vendor purchased this TR6 in July 1995 so has owned it for just over 20 years. The Triumph has been serviced and maintained by TR specialists in West London and Oxfordshire since acquisition and for the first 10 years was the owner's everyday transport; in the last 10 it has been driven less frequently and is more of a 'weekend' car now.

In 1999 the TR was made available for hire by TV/film production companies and used for an episode of ITV's immensely popular 'Midsomer Murders' - 'Dead Man's Eleven' - broadcast in September '99. The 'call sheets' for this production are included in the sale. Major restoration work undertaken in 2002 involving removing all body panels; repairing the chassis, sills, etc; Waxoyl treatment; and a complete re-spray of the body (bills on file). The rear bumpers had previously been replaced with new parts. MoT'd to August 2016, the car also comes with a Triumph Heritage Trust Certificate, V5C document and miscellaneous history (mostly receipts) dating back to 1990. The only notified deviations from factory specification are TR4 door pulls and a fuel injection cut-off switch beneath the driver's seat.
