The TR6 is not just a great car, but a sound investment.... -Petrolicious, May 2014, Why the Triumph TR6 is a Collectible The Petrolicious quote above is just one of many endorsements of the Triumph TR6 from the automotive press. Heres another, from Hemmings Motor News in 2006: Although most cars require years of collective nostalgic reflection to earn collectible status, the Triumph TR6 was considered a modern classic throughout its entire 1969 to 1976 production run, a distinction that it still holds today. The TR6 was, and still is, a definitive statement of the post-WWII British sports car. In the 40s, American GIs had fallen in love with the 2-seat MGs, Austin Healys, and Jaguars they discovered when they landed in England. The open-air, lightweight, sports cars were unlike anything theyd left behind in the states. Piloting these quick, floor-shifted, fun automobiles along the country lanes and the cobblestones of narrow city streets was addictive. When the war ended, it wasnt long before the demand for the cars erupted in America where no domestic model at the time came close to matching the British sports car feel. That allure still holds today, and the TR6 is a popular choice for delivering those period thrills in a solidly built, reliable, easy-to-maintain automobile. The particular looks of the TR6 versus earlier TR models help make these later cars more desirable. Commenting on the updated looks and best-of-both-worlds result, Hemmings noted: A clever and comprehensive facelift by the Karmann works in West Germany... altered the front and rear ends of the TR4 design, reshaping them in a squarer, more integrated styling theme. The resulting TR6 was a car that looked wider and very modern, yet aside from varying seat designs, its passenger compartment, inner stampings and mechanicals were virtually unchanged. Offered here in an appealing combination of Carmine red over black leather is a well maintained TR6 produced near the end of the models seven-year production run. Its one of just 9,113 assembled in 1975. From its large front chin spoiler, to the angled Union Jack/TR6 appliques on its rear fenders, the car shows beautifully; it begs to be driven. Top-down or top-up, the cars sportiness is evident in its styled steel wheels, red-stripe tires, blacked-out rear fascia, signature low profile and wide stance, roll bar, and of course, its two-seat arrangement. From behind the steering wheel, nothing compares to a TR6. The solid wood dash (including the glove-box door), driver-centric, full Smiths gauge arrangement, Triumph-branded 4-speed shifter, and close-quarters seating with ventilated leather upholstery are true to the British definition of sports car. (The modern Sony audio head unit here ensures enjoyable entertainment on any trip.) The cars front-hinged hood opens to reveal a tidy compartment showcasing the 2.5-liter straight-six engine with its twin, side-mounted carburetors producing 101 horsepower and capable of propelling the car to a top speed of 109 mph. Hemmings commented on the resulting performance of the engine saying its ...throaty exhaust note and torquey demeanor offered the illusion of great speed. Underneath the car, there is surface rust from use as commonly found among similar-age TR6 models. There is no evident body-panel rust. We encourage in-person inspections of this car at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please get in touch for an appointment, and feel free to email or call us with any questions you might have.
