Description

"The Triumph TR6 was produced between 1969 and 1976 and, by the time production ended in July 1976, it was the best-seller of the TR range. In total 94,619 TR6s were manufactured of which 86,249 were sold overseas and only 8,370 were sold in the UK. The bodywork closely resembled that of the previous model, the TR5, but the front and rear were squared off and all TR6s featured inline six-cylinder engines. For the U.S. market, the engine was fitted with carburettors. The TR6 featured a four-speed manual transmission and an optional equipment overdrive unit was a desirable feature because it gave drivers close-gearing for spirited driving whilst remaining an excellent touring car for open motorways. It also featured 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 instrumentation. Braking was provided by disc brakes at the front and rear drum brakes.
This TR6 was imported into the U.K. in 1995 and immediately underwent a substantial restoration. This included the fitting of new front wings and a full repaint. The engine started immediately when requested and ran smoothly with no adverse noises. Used sparingly of late and still in good order throughout, this TR6 is finished in green with beige interior. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a full years MoT test certificate, this lefthand drive British built sportscar has been owned by the same family for 24 years.
