Rare Factory Hardtop
The Triumph TR6 was the best-selling Triumph in history when production ended in 1976, but was later surpassed by the TR7. More than 94,000 TR6s were built, ninety per cent of them to US specification. The TR6 was a refined sports car. It featured pile carpets on floors and boot (trunk), plush-looking bucket seats, a lovely wooden dashboard and a full complement of instrumentation. In the US, it featured the six-cylinder engine that was carried over from the TR250, while the UK version had a more powerful fuel-injected engine from the TR5 that included the Lucas mechanical fuel injection system. It traces its lineage back to the four-cylinder Triumphs: TR4, TR4A, TR3/TR3A and TR2. This stylish six-cylinder sports car is regarded by some as the last true Triumph.
This beautiful example finished in Mimosa Yellow with black interior was delivered to a Cheshire dealer called Charles Barber & Sons, Limited, with a copy of the factory record showing it came with factory options such as overdrive, hard-top, petrol injection engine and dip left lights. The car is one of 8,370 UK cars produced, it is described by the vendor to be generally in excellent all round condition and drives very well, pulling strongly through all the gears and with the overdrive working as it should. A host of paperwork comprising of old MOTs, photos and invoices for servicing and other work done over the years.
This includes a top end rebuild in 2011 at which point the cylinder head was adapted to run on Unleaded fuel, it is also complete with a Current MOT.
Showing only 8,700 miles, and offered with its factory hard-top, we believe that this car will not only provide its new owner with lots of fun but also represent very good value motoring.
