1976 Triumph TR6
The Triumph TR6 was the ultimate incarnation of the chassis-based Triumph TR series that had begun with the TR2 in 1953. It ran from late 1968 to 1976, just under 95,000 were built, with 91% exported, mainly of course, to the US. Many saw the TR6 as the last of a breed of hairy chested British sports cars, and as the only appropriate replacement for the Austin Healey 3000, which had ceased production in 1968. The TR6 featured a 4-speed manual transmission. Brakes were discs at the front and drums at the rear. The dashboard was walnut veneer. Construction was traditional frame with other features included:,
Independent rear suspension,
Rack and pinion steering
15 inch rally wheels and Redline Michelin tires
Pile carpet on floors and trunk/boot
