1973 Triumph TR6 - Red
The Triumph TR6 was a notable high point for small sports cars from the U.K., a handsome and powerful roadster that put some modern flair into the British tradition. It was built by British Triumph Motor Company between 1969 and 1976. The styling and mechanicals were aimed directly at the U.S. market, with more than 90 percent of the nearly 92,000 produced exported from England, most bound for America. The TR6 also featured semi-trailing arm independent rear suspension, rack and pinion steering, 15-inch wheels and tires, pile carpet on floors and trunk/boot, bucket seats and a full complement of instrumentation. Braking was accomplished by disc brakes at the front and drum brakes at the rear. The TR6 construction has the body bolted onto a frame instead of the two being integrated into a unibody structure; the TR6 dashboard was wooden.
This particular TR6 was family owned for nearly 30 years after being brought to the Midwest from the great state of Georgia. It is truly a survivor car, never having been restored but maintained through out the years as needed. The car still has all original sheet metal body panels including floors and has had one repaint in the original Pimento red with black interior. It retains an original factory black vinyl convertible top with silver reflective stripe that is in excellent condition along with an optional tonneau and boot covers. There has been a beautiful new high gloss wood dash and wood Moto Lita steering wheel installed. This 1973 TR6 is the last year for the all chrome bumpers giving it a cleaner, more vintage look. It is an excellent driving car with strong, spirited 6 cylinder motor, tight steering, and handling characterics. If you want to experience the pleasure of driving a classic British sports car, this is the one for you.
