NICE TR6, CORRECT DELFT BLUE, RUNS EXCELLENT, PRICED TO SELL, INVEST TODAY!
The 1976 Triumph TR6 is the last year for one of the last great British roadsters. It has a powerful inline six motor that makes a perfect sound as you tick through the gears, while enjoying the curvy backroads. Best of all, this turnkey smile machine is available at an exceptionally affordable price.
We often see these drop tops in red, green, or white, so it's distinctively nice to see this Triumph in a glossy regal shade of factory correct Delft Blue (Code 136). For many of us in the USA, the TR6 seems to be the one really built for our side of the Atlantic. The design was a continued evolution of the TR series, but now it had more muscular fender lines. Even the little details are aggressive such as bright trim ring around the wheels that are reminiscent of Chevy's rally package. But there was also no mistaking its heritage with a flat Kamm-back treatment that was also seen on the larger Triumphs of the day. The handsome cut-down doors, a long hood (bonnet), and racing gas cap mounted centrally on the rear, all result in a car that looks great on the open road... and that's exactly where this roadster has spent most of its life.
The interior is another hallmark of the great British roadster. With a wood patterned dashboard full of original Smiths gauges, it definitely has a hand-crafted European feel. Everything has a deep, dark appearance, including the bucket seats, carpeting, and door panels. Even the matching vinyl convertible boot cover has a refreshing crispness that tells you this one has been well looked after. 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, the black vinyl folding roof fits nice and snug.
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 a 2.5-liter inline-six that doesn't suffer from this anemic reputation, and it's one of the larger motors out of the iconic era of sprightly roadsters. 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 with the four-speed manual transmission. One look at the engine bay, and you can see that this tidy car has received a lot of care and attention over its lifetime. 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 Michelin X redline tires.
Owning a British roadster is a sign of distinction, and it only gets better with a ready-to-run Triumph in a distinctive factory correct color. We'll even keep the secret of how little you paid to get all of this. Call today!!!
