1972 Triumph TR6 - Classic Car For Sale (Click Here)


Triumph TR6 1972
If you are of a certain age you will know that a TR6 is a really sexy bit of kit. They have a wonderful exhaust note, and the rear of the car used to dip on gear change (just like a big Healey) which indicated a real beast. Fred and I have owned very few for some reason, which we must rectify. At least this car is a start.

This is a home market right hand drive example which enjoys tax free (exempt) status. It is in the right colour (Pimento Red), and has wire wheels and overdrive. Originally these cars were fitted with fuel injection, which had a reputation for being troublesome at the time. There is enough expertise around these days to get over most problems, but the system is not unleaded tolerant I understand, and sorting it can be expensive. This car has the benefit of triple Weber carburetors, which gets over all the problems nicely.

The car has clearly had a restoration in the past. It has very good trim, carpets and hood, and also has the benefit of a full length split tonneau cover. The body and paintwork are also very good, but not perfect, as it is over 12 years since the work was completed. I took the car to a local event last night, and I must say that I did enjoy the trip down memory lane. The engine is strong with good pressures and temperatures. The gearbox and axle are quiet, and the overdrive is working well. Brakes too are excellent. There is an extensive file of previous invoices and MOTs with the car.

If you are looking for a TR6 with a really good specification, in very good order, but at a more than sensible price, then this car could be just for you.
