The Triumph TR6 was produced between 1969 and 1976 and, by the time production ended in July 1976, it was the best-seller of the TR range. In total 94,619 TR6s were manufactured of which 86,249 were sold overseas and only 8,370 were sold in the UK. The bodywork closely resembled that of the previous model, the TR5, but the front and rear were squared off and all TR6s featured inline six-cylinder engines. The TR6 featured a four-speed manual transmission and an optional equipment overdrive unit was a desirable feature because it gave drivers close-gearing for spirited driving whilst remaining an excellent touring car for open motorways. It also featured 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 instrumentation. Braking was provided by disc brakes at the front and rear drum brakes.

Presented in its factory specification of Old English White with the original upholstery, this garage stored example is a very early, original, right hand drive UK supplied TR6 which is fitted with its correct CP 150bhp engine. The soft top is in very good order as are the tyres and recently fully refurbished wheels. Since the car was photographed,  it has been pin-striped and new TR6 decals and new aluminium side trims fitted. It is fitted with an aluminium rocker cover, high torque starter motor and new injectors; the car also boasts a recent MoT test certificate and service. Benefitting from a very nice history file and great panel gaps and door shuts, this car is not like most other examples on the market. It needs to be seen to be truly appreciated.
