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.
Originally registered on 4th September 1970, this TR6 presents in delightful condition throughout. With four former keeper and relatively low mileage, it is clear this Triumph has been well cared for throughout its 52 years on British roads. A genuine UK example and still bearing the original fuel injection system which has been overhauled recently, other mechanical work carried out recently includes rebuilding the engine and overhauling the braking system. A new fuel tank and petrol pump have recently been fitted, as have two new driveshafts and universal joints. The fastidious vendor has also had a new soft top fitted, together with new tyres and carpets. The underside of the car and chassis has also had restoration work carried out recently. Bills for the work carried out are in the history folder, which includes a V5C registration document, a Heritage Certificate and a current MoT test certificate valid until 24th August 2022. This 150bhp example is finished in green with black interior, and is a very well sorted example, ready to use and enjoy immediately.
Interested parties please note, this TR6 was advertised in the catalogue as coming with a hardtop. This is not included in the sale of the car. We apologise for any inconvenience.
