1974 Triumph TR6
The Triumph TR6 is a sports car that was built by the Triumph Motor Company of England. While production began several months earlier, the TR6 was officially introduced in January as a 1969 model year vehicle. The last TR6 was produced on the 20th of July 1976. Of the 91,850 TR6s produced, 83,480 were exported, almost all of them to the United States, while only 8,370 were sold in the UK.
The TR6 is adored by British sports car fans as the last of the traditional hairy-chested English
roadsters. While it’s possible to argue with the precise wording of that statement, the TR6 was certainly antique in many ways when it was introduced in late 1968. Karmann of Germany had done a masterful job of updating the TR4 body shell while actually changing very little. The 2.5 liter straight six, while not a powerhouse in emission controlled twin carburetor form, had plenty of torque and made some of the best sounds in sports cardom. TR6s are easy to maintain, good-looking, rugged and have easy parts availability. They make an ideal first collector car.
The French blue color is quite rare and most attractive on the TR6 shape. This example was been owned for over 15 years by a local owner who took great care of it both cosmetically and mechanically. The top was recently replaced with premium canvas. The interior was also recently replaced with correct factory upholstery. The car has a factory luggage rack, original jack, handle, and lug wrench. The removable roll bar was installed for the sporting looks it gives the car. This TR6 drives exceptionally well and is a great car for local shows.
