Classic Car Overview

With a brawny six-cylinder engine inside a timelessly styled 2-seat roadster body, the Triumph TR6 was one of the last great traditional British roadsters. This nicely restored 1974 Triumph TR6 is a great-driving finished car and runs every bit as good as it looks. Offering all the thrills of a 2-seat sports car, its a fun, inexpensive way to get into the hobby or a great addition to a collection of any size. But dont delay, because prices on these cars are going up by the day! An evolution of the TR4/TR5 body, the TR6 still manages to have a unique look all its own, thanks to a redesigned grille and headlights, as well as a squared-off rear end that gave it an aggressive, almost muscle car appearance. It manages to look like a bigger car than it actually is, which is undoubtedly part of the reason for its sales success in the US. The shiny blue paint suits the low-slung roadster just fine and looks like it was done not long ago and to a high driver-quality standard thats better than most of its peers. The body panels fit well and dont show any signs of the dreaded British tin worm and after a life of careful ownership, that shouldnt be a surprise. The bumpers are the later-style chrome pieces with the rubber overriders, but of all the manufacturers that had to bend the knee to the US federal safety standards of the time, Triumph seemed to have done it the most stylishly. In short, this is a car you will be proud to drive and show off, and its an absolute blast on the open road. Inside, theres no mistaking that the British crafted the black vinyl interior. Those are newer and very well-finished seat covers, so they fit right and look exactly how the factory would have done it and black is a nice contrast to the blue paint, elegant without being too flashy. With a real wood dashboard full of original Smiths gauges, it definitely has an Old World feel, and the dash is free of cracks and blemishes which makes the entire cabin look fantastic. The stock three-spoke steering wheel begs for a pair of string-back driving gloves and youll find that the shifter is a delight to row through the gears. Theres a retro-style AM/FM/AUX stereo radio in the center stack, but if youre doing things correctly, youll seldom use it and just enjoy the sound of the revving straight 6 under the hood instead. The black convertible top is in great shape and comes with its accompanying boot cover, and out back the trunk is very spacious for a 2-seater and nicely finished. Mechanically, this slick TR6 is powered by a burly 2.5-liter inline-six, which provides plenty of power for the featherweight car. Torque is impressive, especially down low, and its obvious that the car was tuned with American enthusiasts in mind. Thanks to a pair of Stromberg side-draft carburetors and a dual exhaust system with Pacesetter mufflers, it makes wonderful roadster sounds, and youll be downshifting just for the sheer joy of listening to the engine. The engine bay shows lots of recent work and is very, very clean, but not so perfect that you wont want to hit the road on the next sunny summer day. A 4-speed manual transmission is the perfect dance partner, with a light clutch and a direct feel to the shifter that snaps through the gears with ease. The all-independent suspension is surprisingly supple on the road, and its aided with power steering and power front disc brake options making this a car that will tour long distances easily and still entertain you on a curving mountain road. Adding to the cars aggressive appearance are original 15-inch wheels wearing correct Cooker Classics redline tires. With great performance, wonderful character, and unique looks, this TR6 has all the right ingredients for a fun summer driver. Finished in a great color combination, this TR6 is a reasonably-priced way to have a lot of fun this summer. Call today!
