1970 TR-6 Frame-off Restoration
1970 TR-6 – Frame-off Restoration
Finding a Triumph in this condition is almost impossible unless you buy a nationally-ranked show car – at more than twice the price. This TR-6 was the subject of a frame-off restoration in 2006 and has been used sparingly since.
With Excellent Cosmetics
While off the frame, this was treated to a very nice respray in Triumph’s Signal Red (not its original color), and the paint is deep and clear without any orange peel and with only a few imperfections. The red exterior is complemented by a tan leather interior. The tan top was also replaced, offering the same weather protection that it had when it left the factory.
Powered by a Pre-emissions Engine
It is well known among Triumph aficionados that the 1970 engine developed significantly more power than the later TR-6s that were subject to federal emissions standards. This car is as peppy as they come, and it accelerates smoothly from start-up to higher RPMs. The engine was reportedly rebuilt at the time of restoration.
4-Speed with factory overdrive!
- All brake lines replaced
- All of the gauges work but speedometer reads fast
- Newly recored radiator and heater core
- Overhauled steering rack
- All suspension bushings replaced
Clean, Clean, Clean
It is not an overstatement to say that this Triumph is clean as a whistle. And it is ready for the road with gauges that work, safety equipment (wipers, horn, lights, turn signals, etc.) that function properly. Looking at the car with a super critical eye, besides the overdrive, all we can find that needs repair is a leaking rear-end seal and a speedometer that reads fast.
Driving a classic Triumph doesn’t get any better than this!!
This is a quality TR-6 that only comes along rarely: full restored, strong mechanicals, spotless interior, a great color combination AND PRICED RIGHT.
Stop in and see this one – you won’t be disappointed.
