This 1973 Triumph TR6 is a great classic for those who love iconic lines and the freedom to turn a car into a personal expression of fun on the road.
Triumph's TR6 will always have a special place in our hearts because it's a drop-top driver's car with some of the best lines around. The way the hood forms an integral part of the front end, the doors have a kick-up style line, and the trunk has a smooth tapered look - it's all part of an elegant and sporty style. And it looks good in a tasteful brown that seems right for a dignified British import. Plus, this is from the earlier part of the generation where this European didn't have U.S. bumper laws to add bulk. This example isn't perfect, but the heart of the appeal here is the foundation for what comes next. A restoration project? A V8 street bruiser? Your next race car conversion? The completeness of this car allows it to be part of whatever fun you have planned for the future.
The TR6 remains an in-demand classic because not all British sports cars from the era offered full doors, roll-up windows, and a proper convertible top. And the interior continues the feeling that you have good features and a ton of potential. There are worthwhile upgrades like the roll bar that adds strength and safety. The cloth inserts in the seats are always a welcomed feature when you hop in on a sunny day when wearing shorts. Also, you have the right fundamentals in place with the grippy sports steering wheel and well-placed shifter. And the full Smith gauge package dominates the dash, including the large speedo and tach.
The engine bay shows off more of what makes the TR6 so desirable. The 2.5-liter inline-six backed by dual SU carburetors was a terrific package that gave you much more power than the average British roadster. And this added power was put to good use with the best driving dynamics of the era. This includes a fully independent suspension, power brakes with front discs, and the control of a four-speed manual transmission.
This even has the enhanced grip of modern Continental tires.
Iconic classic style meets with a ton of potential for a fun project. This TR6 is ready for whatever future you can imagine. Call today!!!
