The Triumph TR6 was manufactured for seven years from 1969 and by the time production came to an end in July 1976, it was the best-seller of the TR range. The bodywork closely resembled that of the previous model, the Triumph TR5, but the front and rear were squared off and all TR6s featured inline six-cylinder engines. For the US market, the engine was fitted with carburettors whilst for other world markets, including the UK, the TR6 was fitted with fuel-injection. It featured a four-speed manual gearbox, 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 instruments. In total 94,619 TR6s were built of which 86,249 were sold overseas and only 8,370 were sold in the UK.
This lefthand drive Triumph TR6 was imported from the U.S. by the vendor who has been using it as his own personal car. We are advised she drives well with no known faults and is described as a solid example. The red coachwork is in good order and the seats have recently been re-trimmed. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 17th July 2017; TR6 values have increased of late with the market place realising the potential of these interesting British sports cars.
