A Great Example of the Marque!
This TR 6 is as attractive to look at as it is fun to drive:
- Paint and Chrome
The Burgundy paint is a beautiful finish on this car and is in very nice condition. The paint gleams and shows off this sports car’s great lines.
All of the chrome is in very good condition.
The body and interior of the car appear free of rust, and the underside shows surface rust that is commonplace on a car of this vintage (see pictures). The engine compartment is clean.
The tan upholstery (seats as well as door panels) was replaced when the car was restored and are like-new. The dash and carpeting are in excellent condition as well.
The 6 cylinder OHV engine runs and drives 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, Boot Cover and Tonneau
The black convertible top, with one pinched spot (see pictures), is in excellent condition and is simple to operate. The car has both a tan boot cover as well as a separate tan tonneau that both look like new.
- Tires, Brakes, and Monitoring Systems
This TR6 has Red Line tires that look (see pictures) to have most of their tread remaining.
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 totally 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. The oil filter has been converted to the preferable—and more convenient—canister system.
- Safety and Convenience Features
The TR6 is equipped with driver’s and passenger’s seat belts. Should you get caught in a sudden rainstorm, the convertible top provides a ready answer for your comfort. In addition, the car has a full tonneau that can be used for overnight stays to keep the dew off of the seats or if the weather looks iffy.
A TR6 that will Dazzle your Friends while fulfilling your Sports Car Dreams!!
