Lot 115 - 1970 Triumph TR6 (PI)
|Odometer reading||5,486 miles|
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 more sought after amongst the Triumph enthusiasts.
This striking example represents one of the earlier examples with a six-cylinder, Triumph GT6 Mk. II engine fitted. It also benefits from a four-speed gearbox with the optional factory overdrive unit fitted. Invoices detail a full strip and repaint (including hood-frame) in December 2015 as well as a new Stayfast mohair hood fitted at the same time. New tyres (modern 205's) can be found at each corner as well as a new clutch kit and full service including various electrical items. The MoT test certificate is valid for a full 12 months and the car is reported to run and drive well. Offered at no reserve, this will be sure to attract interest from many quarters.
