To modernise the Triumph TR5 that had evolved from the Michelotti designed TR4, Triumph looked to produce a new modern body. Triumph commissioned Karmann of Germany but the task was difficult as Karmann had to produce a new body style whilst retaining much of the original structure. The re-style included a new nose, wings and a new tail. The result was the 'Kamm' tailed TR6 and was produced between 1969 and 1976. The home market TR6 initially produced 150bhp but was later detuned to 125bhp. Due to their greater power output, the early models are sought after amongst the Triumph enthusiasts.
This fabulous Triumph TR6 with Pimento red exterior paint and black soft-top, comes supplied with an extensive history file, documenting an impressive history over the last 25 years and also includes a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate confirming its credentials as an original home-market, righthand drive example. Extensive remedial works have been undertaken together with a recent engine re-tune and a full strip, paint and waxoil to the underside of this example to protect the car from the elements. Regular maintenance, servicing and MoT tests can all be found in the history file alongside the receipts for recent works amounting to £3,500. The overall condition is excellent with good paintwork and a contrasting tan interior. Added extras when built included disc wheels, overdrive, static seat belts, heater and Dunlop sport tyres. Well presented and well documented, this Triumph is exactly what a quality example should be; so much so that the owner had a category 1 alarm fitted to keep his pride and joy safe and secure.
