Lot 250 - 1971 Triumph TR6
|Sold - £7,952
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.
Imported recently from Ontario, this 1971 registered TR6 requires some restoration although she starts, runs and drives well with no known faults. Some new suspension parts and brakes have been fitted recently and it is probably best described as a rolling restoration. Supplied with a Nova certificate to enable registration in the UK, this Triumph TR6 is offered for sale without reserve.
