TR6 1974

Title Status --
Exterior Color Pimento Red
Interior Color Black


With its sports cars being fitted only with four-cylinder engines for the preceding decade and a half, Triumph introduced a six-cylinder engine to extend the life and improve the performance of the beloved TR series. Similar to the earlier four-cylinder TR4A-the first TR with independent rear suspension - but with Triumph\'s 2.5-liter, six-cylinder engine installed in place of the old 2.1-liter four, the TR5 was produced during the 1968 model year only (October 1967 to November 1968), pending the arrival of the TR6.

Restyled for 1969 by Karmann of Osnabruck, the TR6 sported a full-width nose and squared-off tail. Under the skin the chassis remained basically the same as its independently-rear-suspended TR4A predecessor, while the 2.5-liter power unit was unchanged. Handling was improved over that of the TR5 courtesy of wider wheels and a front anti-roll bar.

This 1974 Triumph TR6 is the right mix of originality and care. It makes for the kind of value-priced classic that turns back the clock the moment you turn the key. The factory-correct Pimento Red paint color looks great on this classic roadster. The body has a straight and clean look of quality and the chrome luggage rack adds character. The clean black interior has a good look against the classic red exterior. You know this is a driver\'s car from the moment you sit down. The grippy sports steering wheel, well-placed shifter, and a wood-faced dash full of Smiths gauges engage the enthusiast in you.

The engine bay has the solid look of proper care. The 2.5-liter inline-six backed by dual single barrel Stromberg carburetors with spilt exhaust manifolds that exit through dual pipes to the muffler is terrific package that gives you much more power than the average British roadster. The TR6 is a driver\'s car, and this one really loves to put a driver-ready attitude forward. The motor fires up eagerly, making a nice exhaust note, and you have full control with the four-speed manual transmission. The fully independent sports suspension, front disc brakes and nimble steering give it a confident feeling on the road.
