|Odometer reading||58,631 miles|
|Estimate||£15,000 - £19,000|
|Result||Sold - £15,120|
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, however 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 pleasant right hand drive TR6 was manufactured in 1972 for the international market and was imported and registered in the UK in April 1991. Finished in blue with a black interior and with a wooden dashboard in good order, this popular model has benefitted from regular servicing and has recently had a new gearbox fitted. This Triumph is fitted with the desirable overdrive and we are told is a joy to drive. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document, this MoT exempt TR6 would make a perfect start to any classic car enthusiast collection and can be enjoyed straight away.
