A Great Example of the Marque!
This TR6 was the recipient of a frame-off restoration along with modifications to the bumpers so as to restore the classic TR6 look of earlier models. It combines the power and features of the 1975 model with the styling that made these cars so popular. And, of course, the restoration resulted in upgrades to the mechanical and electrical systems as well as to the interior and cosmetic features of the car.
This TR6 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 nice but not show condition. The paint gleams and shows off this sports car’s great lines.
The chrome is in excellent condition.
The body and interior of the car appear free of rust, and the underside is exceptionally clean as befits a car with a frame-off restoration (see pictures). The engine compartment is clean.
The Tan upholstery (seats as well as door panels) was replaced when the car was restored. The dash and carpeting are in excellent condition as well.
The 6 cylinder OHV engine) runs and drives well. It is 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.
- Transmission with Overdrive
The manual 4-speed synchromesh transmission shifts properly and smoothly as one would expect in this famous marque. The car has overdrive allowing a reduction in engine speed for increased fuel economy.
- Top, Boot Cover and Tonneau
The black convertible top is in excellent condition and is simple to operate. The car has a tan boot cover as well to protect the top when it is down. And for those who like top-down driving on chilly days, the black tonneau is the answer for keeping the driver’s lower extremities warm(er) while blasting along on a fall or winter night.
- Tires, Brakes, and Monitoring Systems
This TR6 has 4 brand new Konig wheels mounted with Yokohama 205/65R15 tires.
The brakes are disc in the front and drum on the back that work properly and smoothly in bringing the car to a rapid and safe stop from the higher speeds this car is capable of reaching.
All of the engine/systems monitoring gauges/lights (speedometer, tachometer, water temperature, fuel, amp and oil pressure) appear to 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. Should you get caught in a sudden rainstorm, the convertible top provides a ready answer for your comfort.
