1972 Triumph TR6 - Classic Car For Sale


Last of the classic open headlamp TR sports cars beginning with the TR2 in 1954, the Triumph TR6 debuting for the U.S. market in 1969 quickly became one of the most iconic two seat roadsters produced, and served to redefine the generation of two seat roadsters which would follow. Fully occupied by other British Leyland projects the traditional designer for Triumph, Michelotti, was unable to attend to the new TR design and Triumph was forced to turn to the German coach builder Karmann for fresh architecture to flaunt the new 2.5 liter in-line 6 cylinder engine. Karmann managed to retain the TR’s basic inner structure, execute the new body design, and manufacture the necessary tooling all within 14 months, a fairly short time frame considering the TR6 was produced for more than 7 years. This 1972 Damson Maroon on Black interior Triumph TR6 sits in nicely detailed, correct and very well kept overall condition. Hailing from dry Southern California, and sporting its “Blue Plates”, this enthusiast grade English roadster boasts a very healthy well-maintained drive-train, fully functional electronics including all instruments, rust free body and chassis, correct convertible top with reflective strip, nice chrome bumpers, new tires, MOMO wood steering wheel, recent interior restoration as well as good overall paint and body fit and finish, clean undercarriage, spare tire and jack, and so much more. Fitted with correct 2.5 liter, 152 CID in-line 6 cylinder engine, correct dual “Stromberg” carburetors, 4 speed manual transmission, and more, this TR6 is the true embodiment of what a 2 seat roadster is all about and is likely one of the nicest and highly drivable cars available anywhere at any price. From the trademark sound of the robust and powerful in-line 6 cylinder engine to the feel of the wood steering wheel in your hands and the look of the trademark wood-grain dash and gauges, there can be little doubt that TR6 delivers more open top fun for the money than almost any other car on the road. For the true English car aficionado that demands only the best, there will be few opportunities to acquire such a fantastic and uniquely high caliber vehicle at such an entry level price. These cars do not sit on the market long, seize this opportunity while you can! Odometer currently reads 59,455 miles and according to previous owner is believed to be original mileage. However, due to age of car, we can’t guarantee this to be actual. PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION AND TO DISCUSS FINANCING, SHIPPING, WARRANTY, AND TRADE OPTIONS.
