The Triumph TR6 superseded the TR5 in 1969 and, by the time production ended in 1976, had become the best selling TR only later surpassed by the TR7.  In total 94,619 TR6's were produced with the vast majority sold overseas; 90% of which being of US specification.

Presented today is a UK supplied 1974 model first owned by a Triumph assembly line worker.  Currently in the present ownership for the past seven years, this TR6, has undergone a no expense spared upgrade to fast touring specification; the vendor wishing to have a reliable and fast touring car resulting in several successfully completed trips to the continent and Ireland. The complete specifications list is too numerous to mention here but does include; a gas flowed head, new valve guides, unleaded fuel conversion, stainless steel swan necked valves, fast road cam, a mildly lightened flywheel, Bosch fuel pump and electronic ignition.  A stainless steel six branch extractor manifold (6-3-2-1) with a Phoenix single big bore exhaust has also been fitted. With these engine works having been carried out, 148bhp was recorded at the back wheels at 5000rpm on the Southam Mini Centre rolling road in 2010. Further upgrades include a new clutch, an overhauled four speed gearbox and overdrive which are mated to a balanced prop shaft, Koni adjustable dampers, anti roll bar, uprated springs, rear mini fin drum brakes, drilled front discs brakes and poly bush suspension rubbers. Strengthening to the front suspension and chassis has also been carried out. In 2005 the coachwork was stripped to bare metal and re-finished in Carmine red. More recently a new galvanised windscreen surround was fitted.  This TR6 sits upon a set of new Minilite alloy wheels shod with new tyres; additional brake lights have been fitted for that extra safety factor and for comfort whilst touring, a set of cloth Mazda MX5 seats have been fitted. The vendor wishes it to be known that all parts and works during the current ownership have been supplied and carried out by TR Enterprises apart from the electronic ignition which was undertaken by Jigsaw Racing. A full specification list is supplied within the history file.  Please note that the badges fitted on the front and the CB radio and aerial within the photographs are not included in the sale. With a recent service, full one year MoT certificate and current road fund licence, this is an opportunity for a lucky new owner to jump into a high specification TR and enjoy it straight away.
