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 desirable ‘CP’ 150bhp TR6 is a UK home market supplied example and is presented in red coachwork over a black interior and comes complete with a Mohair hood and desirable factory hardtop. The general condition of the Triumph is good and the paintwork, which has recently been treated to an extensive respray presents very well. Still retaining its original registration number, the TR6 also comes complete with its desirable factory hardtop. The history file that accompanies the car includes many old tax discs, various sundry bills, an invoice detailing the recent extensive respray (£4,030), photos of a previous restoration and 28 MoT test certificates. This well-presented example with its sizeable history file is a fantastic opportunity to acquire an original 150bhp, right hand drive Triumph TR6. Good examples are difficult to come across and this one should certainly not be overlooked.
