In the mid1970s, if you wanted a twoseat British sports car that was not a MG MGB, you wanted a Triumph TR6. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this one owner, largely organic timeless British twoseater in an unusual and original color, Topaz (codes 41, 84). Nineteen seventysix was the TR6s final model year of production and most sought after.
Made at Triumphs factory in Coventry, England, this oneowner example is one of a handful of copies exported around the world between 1968 and 1976. The TR6 was Triumphs first foray into substantial sales figures (around 92K over a nineyear span). It boasted muscular styling with squaredoff front and back ends, reportedly as a result of a consultancy contract involving Karmann.
Overall, the cars paint and trim are in very good order with some minor blemishes visible upon close inspection very nice for a 43 year old car. The cars bodywork is straight, its engine bay is quite tidy, the battery is in very good order, and the cars chrome, wraparound bumpers shine brilliantly while its black bumper guards look robust. The car has an upgraded, black canvas folding top with matching tonneau cover for when the urge to go topless strikes (the car, not you). Note the rearmounted luggage rack for additional storage.
This roadster wears Michelin X rubber, size 18515, at all four corners. Each tire is mounted to a factory, vented alloy wheel with center caps. The wheels are in good, original order with some blemishes visible while the tires are in very good shape.
Under that forwardhinged hood is Triumphs 2.5L OHC inline sixcylinder engine with dual ZenithStromberg carburetors, mated to a fourspeed manual transmission with synchromesh. The engine was rebuilt in 2002 and received a tuneup in 2018. Driver convenience features include power front disc/rear drum brakes.
Inside, the cars black interior is in overall good, original order. The black bucket seats are in great shape, the matching carpet is in good, original order, as is the threespoke steering wheel. The inner door liners and instrument panel are in very good order; note that that dashboard has full instrumentation and a walnut veneer for added warmth. The center console is in very good shape
The TR6 was the bestseller of the TR range when production ended, a record subsequently surpassed by the TR7. Of the 91,850 TR6s produced, 83,480 were exported; only 8,370 were sold in the UK.
All TR6s were powered by Triumphs 2.5litre straight six, with the same Lucas mechanical fuelinjection as the TR5 for the United Kingdom and global markets and carburetion for the United States. The TR6 featured a fourspeed manual transmission. An optional electrically switched overdrive operated on second, third, and fourth gears on early models and third and fourth on later ones.
Construction was traditional frame. Other features included semitrailing arm independent rear suspension, rack and pinion steering, 15inch wheels and tires, pile carpet on floors and trunk/boot, bucket seats, and full instrumentation. Brakes were discs at the front and drums at the rear. A factory steel hardtop was optional, requiring two people to deploy. The dashboard was walnut veneer. Other factory options included a rear antiroll bar and a limitedslip differential.
Documents include original bill of sale and repair receipts.
