Lot 272 - 1973 Triumph TR6
|Odometer reading||10,021 miles|
|Estimate||£23,000 - £26,000|
The TR6 was introduced in 1968 and was the bestseller of the TR range when production ended in July 1976. The bodywork closely resembled that of the previous model, the Triumph TR5. The design house, Karmann Consultants, squared off the front and back ends to give the TR6 its sharpened look. Fitted with a 2.5 litre, in-line, six-cylinder engine, the TR6 could reach 60mph in just over 8.5 seconds and onto a top speed of 120mph. It featured a four-speed manual transmission with an optional overdrive unit and semi-trailing arm independent rear suspension, 15" wheels and tyres, bucket seats and a full complement of instrumentation.
This lovely example of the TR6 is offered in British Racing Green with beige trim. The paintwork gleams and the black hood is in good order. Our vendor states that this TR6 has been reliable and provided many a joyous weekend drive. More recently this Triumph has been so well thought of by its owner that he parked it in his sitting room. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document this MoT exempt sports car is a genuine, privately owned, honest and useable classic. This TR6 represents fabulous value-for-money motoring and would make an ideal addition to any collection or a perfect starting place for any classic car enthusiast.
