ONLY 446 MILES SINCE FULL RESTO, SUPER SLICK PAINT, ALL NEW, LOOK UNDERNEATH!
The Triumph TR6 is one of the last great British roadsters. It combines the features we enjoy such as a powerful and lively six-cylinder motor as well as a full interior. But it doesn't betray the sprightly nature that makes us fall in love on the backroads. Best of all, this turnkey smile machine is fresh from a full rotisserie restoration.
It's hard to go wrong with a dark green that, of course, will be called "British Racing Green" by everyone you meet. But more than just the right color, this fully restored roadster had a serious investment in an amazing shine and great body panels to showcase it. That's why the odometer was reset to zero when they were finished (it only shows a low 446 miles today.) The TR6's design was a continued evolution of the TR series, but now it had more muscular fender lines. There was also no mistaking its heritage with a flat Kamm-back treatment that was also seen on the larger Triumphs of the day. There's a minimal amount of brightwork to keep these cars uncluttered, but this one has been updated to keep shiny parts looking their best. The wraparound bumpers have a mirror-like shine that can only come from a nice investment in this roadster. You can see it clearly because '73 was the last year before they were given the less-desirable federal rubber caps. And of course, nothing says premium British motoring like a set of knock-off wire wheels.
The interior is another hallmark of the great British roadster, which is why it's nice to see so much invested in the restoration. The real wood dashboard, wheel rim, and shift knob have all been given a fine lacquer finish that gives an instant feeling of craftsmanship. Plus, the full set of Smiths gauges really lets you know you're driving a European sports machine. Everything else has a deep, dark appearance from the bucket seats, to the fresh carpets, to the gearshift boot. The original AM/FM radio is still in place so you can listen to tunes on your long and winding road trips. And for those times when you get caught out in wet weather, there's a snug-fitting black vinyl folding roof underneath the matching boot.
British roadsters are often known for their fun on the road despite being typically underpowered. That's why the TR6 is so coveted. It has 2.5-liter inline-six backed by dual Stromberg carburetors, so it doesn't suffer from this anemic reputation. In fact, this is one of the larger motors out of the iconic era of sprightly roadsters. The overall presentation is amazingly original, and even the motor is period-correct date coded. In a car that weighs barely 2,500 lbs, it has quick acceleration and the power to keep pulling well into highway speeds. Part of this versatility comes from the control you get from the four-speed manual transmission, and the rare optional electronic overdrive. Take the long way home, and you'll instantly fall in love with the way the fully independent sport suspension handles in this lightweight roadster. And even when stopping, control is well in hand with front disc brakes and Coker redline tires.
You've always wanted a Triumph TR6, but sometimes you're unsure of the condition of a 40+ year-old import. That's what's so appealing about this one. The moment you check out all the details, including the super clean undercarriage shots, you understand the level of investment that went into this roadster. It's amazing that a restored icon like this can be so affordable, and that's also why we know it will be leaving us soon. Call today!!!
