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 example registered new on 10th September 1973 is an original UK supplied example and is presented in metallic green with black trim and is offered with Wolfrace wheels and has been fitted with twin carburettors. The paintwork retains a deep shine and it is also fitted with a rare and desirable factory hard top. The Triumph has been dry stored and exercised regularly. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document, various bills of maintenance work, old MoT test certificates and sundry invoices. This privately owned classic is fabulous opportunity to acquire a classic that can be used and improved to the new owners wishes. A perfect starting place for any classic car enthusiast the TR looks superb in metallic green coachwork and we are sure will be huge amounts of fun for its new owner.
