Lot 236 - 1973 Triumph TR6
|Odometer reading||88,416 miles|
|Estimate||£12,000 - £16,000|
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.
First registered on 1st August 1973, this fine example underwent renovation work which included a respray in red between 2011and 2014. The red coachwork is complemented with a black hide interior in good condition and a black soft top. The owner reports the car is in good running condition with the overdrive working well. Contained in the file are invoices from 2014 detailing an engine rebuild with around 2,000 miles covered since; it comes with its original block separate to the car. This Triumph is supplied with an MoT test certificate, with no advisories, valid until August next year.
TR6 values have increased of late with the market place realising the potential of these interesting British sports cars, with this example offering good value for money.
