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. Overdrive transmission was available as an optional. 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
This particular TR6 is the last year this car was produced and was fitted with overdrive which is in affect a 5th gear speed for highway cruising. This TR6 has had the same owner since 1978 and has been very well maintained by him. The car has never been crashed or rusted and has had one respray in the original Triumph racing green. The factory floors are still showing the red oxide primer as never having been undercoated. The reflective stripe factory top, tan boot cover and black tonneau cover are all original pieces and not replacements. The seats, carpets, door panels, show little wear and are also original not replacements. The near perfect wood dash is a real treasure. The car has been fitted with new SU carburetors replacing the Strombergs for easier starting and better performance. A wonderful unrestored example driving as new, don't miss this one!
