2.5L INLINE 6, 4 SPEED MANUAL, SOFT TOP, POWER FRONT DISCS, CLEAN TRIUMPH, NICE!

This 1973 Triumph TR6 represents the height of popularity for open-headlight British roadsters, and as such they have become highly sought by collectors. With burly 6-cylinder power and a fantastic look, you can expect these to get more expensive in the coming years, so now is the time to buy a really good one like this.

Originally code 23 Sienna, this beautifully restored Triumph was professionally color-changed in favor of beautiful Maple Brown, giving this dialed-in roadster a mature and sophisticated look. Completed to a high standard during the restoration, today it remains a great high-end driver that looks fantastic and makes all those wonderful British sports car sounds that endear them to their fans. Since these were inexpensive cars, even when new, they often suffered at the hands of students and others who didn't care much for maintenance, but this one appears to have spent its life in a dry climate as the tub and floors are in excellent condition. The paint job was very nicely done, and despite being driven and enjoyed since (that's the whole point, right?), it remains handsome and bright, with no real signs of age to speak of. The large rubber overriders on the bumpers were ... Please ask for the full description.

Description

2.5L INLINE 6, 4 SPEED MANUAL, SOFT TOP, POWER FRONT DISCS, CLEAN TRIUMPH, NICE!

This 1973 Triumph TR6 represents the height of popularity for open-headlight British roadsters, and as such they have become highly sought by collectors. With burly 6-cylinder power and a fantastic look, you can expect these to get more expensive in the coming years, so now is the time to buy a really good one like this.

Originally code 23 Sienna, this beautifully restored Triumph was professionally color-changed in favor of beautiful Maple Brown, giving this dialed-in roadster a mature and sophisticated look. Completed to a high standard during the restoration, today it remains a great high-end driver that looks fantastic and makes all those wonderful British sports car sounds that endear them to their fans. Since these were inexpensive cars, even when new, they often suffered at the hands of students and others who didn't care much for maintenance, but this one appears to have spent its life in a dry climate as the tub and floors are in excellent condition. The paint job was very nicely done, and despite being driven and enjoyed since (that's the whole point, right?), it remains handsome and bright, with no real signs of age to speak of. The large rubber overriders on the bumpers were removed, which really cleans up the front end, the luggage rack out back manages to have a sporty look while allowing your passengers to bring that extra handbag, and the chrome is excellent thanks to a trip to the plating shop when the body was being painted. We don't often get TR6s this nice.

While the TR6 is a small car, the interior was heavily designed to maximize its internal dimensions as efficiently as possible and is surprisingly spacious for two passengers. Originally stocked with code 33 New Tan upholstery, the restorers decided that something a bit darker than that original peanut brittle shade was needed, and opted for the fantastic dark brown material seen in the cabin today. The comfortable vinyl seats barely look like they've ever been sat in, certainly no splits or tears in the covers anywhere, and the lighter, plush brown carpets offer a bit of contrast that really lightens up things inside. The genuine wood dash is in fantastic condition and all the Smiths gauges show bright clear markings and beautiful chrome trim rings. Factory knobs and handles remain in place, giving the car an authentic feel, and there's even an original British Leyland AM radio in the dash that accompanies the soundtrack of that big six working up front. The wood-handled Union Jack 4-speed shifter falls easily to hand and moves through the gates easily, making the TR6 one of the more pleasant long-distance touring roadsters. Overhead, there's a revised canvas convertible top that was replaced when the rest of the car was refreshed, and judging by how clear the plastic windows still are, it's likely it's never seen more than a light drizzle. You also get a decent finished trunk that makes this a great choice for long-distance touring.

The TR6's real appeal lies under the hood: a 2.5-liter inline-six that makes great torque and wonderful sounds. Other than the shiny, bright valve cover up top, the brawny engine is presented using factory parts, including a pair of side-draft carburetors on an aluminum intake manifold. Tidy and well-maintained, the engine bay shows proof of clean living with spotless inner fenders and firewall, and even the battery tray is in fantastic condition; when these cars rust, that's where it starts. You'll note this one also carries a completely painted engine bay, which is a nice find that shows some commitment to authenticity, and the finishes used throughout are quite correct. The 4-speed manual is a joy to shift, with light action and positive throws that remind you why these cars were so popular when they were new. And while experienced sports car fans might find the TR6's independent rear suspension a little soft, few can argue with its comfortable ride and almost vice-free handling. Power front disc/rear drum brakes deliver plenty of stopping power for the lightweight car, and it wears stylish 15-inch wheels wrapped with Yokohama white-wall radials.

Prices for just about every sort of inexpensive sports car have been rising, and it's increasingly difficult to find fully restored TR6s like this with asking prices below $30k. Turn-key and ready to go, this little roadster won't last long. Call now!
