Lot 200 - 1970 Triumph TR6
To modernise the Triumph TR5 that had evolved from the Michelotti designed TR4, Triumph looked to produce a new modern body. They initially turned to Michelotti but the Italian was fully committed with other projects. Instead, Triumph commissioned Karmann of Germany. The task was difficult as Karmann had to produce a new body style whilst retaining much of the original structure. The restyle included a new nose, wings and a new tail. The result was the 'Kamm' tailed TR6 and was produced between 1969 and 1976. The Triumph TR6 became the best selling Triumph at the time with 94,619 units sold. It featured the inline six-cylinder engines from the TR5 and in the US the engine was fuelled by carburettors whilst cars supplied around the rest of the world, including the UK, were fuel injected. The home market TR6 initially produced 150bhp but was later detuned to 125bhp. Due to their greater power output, the early models are sought after amongst the Triumph enthusiasts.
Originally registered on 4th September 1970, this TR6 is a genuine UK example and still bearing the original fuel-injection system which has been overhauled and works well. Other mechanical work carried out includes an engine rebuild and overhauling the braking system. A new fuel tank and petrol pump have been fitted in the last couple of years, as have two new driveshafts and universal joints. A replacement soft top has been fitted, together with relatively new tyres and carpets. The underside of the car and chassis has also had restoration work carried out recently. This 150bhp Triumph TR6 comes with a history folder, a V5C registration document and a Heritage Certificate, together with a current MoT test certificate valid until 6th February 2025. Please note an advisory on the MoT certificate reads ‘Vehicle structure is deformed but structural rigidity is not significantly reduced (chassis has a very small kink).’ Offered for sale without reserve this fuel injected Triumph is a great way to enjoy the summer.
