A Great Example of the Marque!
A Virginia car that came into the current family’s ownership 25 years ago in need of restoration. They had a full frame-off restoration done which was documented with receipts AND photos. The car was garage-kept and little-used until recently when it was re-awakened, serviced by a professional shop, and shod with 4 new radial tires before being brought to the Classic Car Center to find the next owner.
This TR 6 is as attractive to look at as it is fun to drive:
- Paint and Chrome
The British Racing Green paint chosen for this Triumph is a beautiful finish and is in very nice condition. The paint gleams and shows off this sports car’s great lines.
All of the chrome is in good condition with scratches on bumpers.
The body and interior of the car appear free of rust, and the underside shows minor surface rust that is commonplace on a car of this vintage (see pictures). The engine compartment is clean.
The Black upholstery (seats as well as door panels) was replaced when the car was restored and is like-new. The dash and carpeting are in excellent condition as well.
The 6 cylinder OHV engine (with just re-built carburetors) runs and drives almost like new. It is a fully capable of propelling this Triumph through the curves and twists of mountain roads as well as docile enough to take you to the ice cream Shoppe.
The manual 4-speed synchromesh transmission shifts properly and smoothly as one would expect in this famous marque.
- Top and Boot Cover
The black convertible top is in excellent condition and is simple to operate. The car has a black boot cover as well to protect the top when it is down.
- Tires, Brakes, and Monitoring Systems
This TR6 has 4 brand new Firestone 205/70R15 tires installed in early October, 2020, just before the car passed Virginia’s state safety inspection.
The brakes are disc in the front and drum on the backthat work properly and smoothly in bringing the car to a rapid and safe stop from the high speeds this car is capable of reaching. The braking system was rebuilt recently.
All of the engine/systems monitoring gauges/lights (speedometer, tachometer, water temperature, fuel, amp and oil pressure) work properly. Similarly, the lights, horn, and turn signals all work correctly.
- Safety and Convenience Features
The TR6 is equipped with driver’s and passenger’s seat belts. A roll bar was also installed for extra protection. Should you get caught in a sudden rainstorm, the convertible top provides a ready answer for your comfort.
A TR6 that will Dazzle your Friends while fulfilling your Sports Car Dreams!!
This car is in a class of its own: power, cosmetics and FUN! Whether at a car show, dinner at a special restaurant or the track, you can be assured that this car will be noticed and admired by everyone who sees it.
These cars represent not just a great driving experience but a sound investment as well. Apart from the investment value of this car, it is hard to put a price on the feeling of enjoyment when other drivers and pedestrians wave and give you a “thumbs up”!
