1976 Triumph TR6
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.
1976 was the last year of production for this handsome British TR6 roadster. This particular car has a well documented past including the original bill of sale, Alabama title, and manufactures Statement of Origin from British Leyland Motors. (We have never seen one!) The nearly 2 inch thick files include service records, owners notes, and restoration receipts. The car was completely restored from 2002 to 2003 and passionately maintained since. The rare factory original Delft blue is very appealing with the light tan interior. The car equipped with the factory style reflective stripe convertible top, boot cover, and tonneau cover. It also has a vintage style modern radio and speakers with hide away antenna. The condition of the body is lazer straight with excellent show quality paint. The dash is like factory new with no cracks or delamination. This TR6 drives superbly with tight steering, smooth shifting, and great power for a very quiet 2.6 liter six cylinder motor. We believe this TR6 to be one of the better cars on the market. It is time to enjoy the experiience of a classic British roadster.
