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 TR6 was repatriated to the UK in March 2018 and has undergone extensive restoration work. At the time of writing, the restoration is close to completion and includes a conversion to righthand drive. We are informed by the vendor this Triumph starts and runs well. The maroon coachwork is complemented by cream interior and to be expected, she is fitted with carburettors. This matching numbers TR6 is supplied with a V5C registration document and a Heritage Certificate.
