800 Derita Road, Ste. A
The 1970 Triumph TR6 combines a lively six-cylinder motor, fully independent suspension, and a full interior. It's all part of the ideal European driving experience. Best of all, the detailed restoration work has already been done on this one, so you're looking at a turn-key smile machine.
While all classic British roadsters are attractive, the sleek red seen on this one seems to perfectly convey sportiness and sophistication all in the first glance. This car has only gone about 200 miles since its full restoration, and so the red has a terrific luster... which is exactly what you want on a sunshine-friendly droptop. The design was a continued evolution of the TR series, but now it had more muscular fender lines. And there was also no mistaking its heritage with a flat Kamm-back treatment that was also seen on the larger Triumphs of the day. But what you'll really love about this one are the details. The panels have a clean and crisp look. The form-hugging chrome bumpers are a hallmark of the earlier TR6s, and so they shine bright. And the minilite wheels have that iconic look of a classic European sports car.
The interior is another hallmark of the great British roadster, which is why it's nice to see so much invested in the restoration. The dashboard, steering wheel, and shift knob all have that feeling craftsmanship with the real wood application. Plus, the full set of Smiths gauges really lets you know you're driving a European sports machine. The full black package on the high-back bucket seats, plush carpeting, taut door panels, and added roll bar looks great against the exterior red. And for those times when you get caught out in a little rain, there are rollup windows and a snug-fitting black vinyl folding roof to keep the weather out.
The TR6 is coveted for having one of the most substantial powerplants of the British roadsters. It has a 2.5-liter inline-six back by dual Stromberg carburetors. You can tell plenty was invested here, because of the crisp setup. Not only was this rebuilt during the restoration, but also there are newer pieces, right down to details like the air box, plug wires, and hoses. It's this kind of big investment that yields a strong motor that loves to fire on the first crank. And when you get out on the road, the upgraded five-speed manual transmission means an extra gear and better ratios to take full advantage of this strong powerhouse. Take the long way home, and you'll instantly fall in love with the way the power front disc brakes, upgraded sport tires, and sport suspension all come together in this lightweight roadster. And take some time to view this in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see one of the cleanest representations of this fully-independent setup around.
Complete with owner's manual and build receipts, there was a solid investment here to give you a cut-above classic. So if you're looking for the best in vintage British motoring, call today!
