Classic Car Overview

Act now, because this may be one of the last chances you have to buy a clean TR6 for under $25 grand. Prices have been inching up steadily on these awesome little roadsters, and this one-owner 1976 Triumph TR6 makes it easy to understand why. With a brawny inline-six, fantastic styling, and timeless charm, the TR6 is on the verge of becoming an A-list collectable. With a classic look augmented by a few smart upgrades, this is British sports car distilled to its purest form. Not fully restored, but beautifully maintained and upgraded as needed, the result is a bright red roadster with great lines and a ton of charisma. The TR6 might be the most handsome of all the Triumph TR-series roadsters, and although its merely an updated version of the TR4, the styling updates came together just right and the car is ideally proportioned with great style. The paint is 70s bright and in decent condition, although a professional buff would really wake it up, and it has a single pinstripe to highlight the little kick-up behind the door. It has a sporting look beyond merely cute roadster and thats likely why these cars are appreciating so rapidly. It also features the traditional blacked-out tail panel and big chrome bumpers with the rubber over-riders as required by the feds, but they look right today. This really is a great looking car. Settle yourself behind the wheel and youll discover its also a great driving car. Youll discover the joys of minimalism when youre in it, as the car seems to fit you like clothing and theres very little insulation between you and the driving experience. Nicely preserved black buckets offer good support for sporting driving, and the pedals are ideally placed for heel-and-toe shifting. That dashboard is genuine wood and filled with lovely Smiths gauges that are elementally British. A wood-rimmed steering wheel dances in your hands during aggressive driving, letting you know exactly what the front wheels are doing and the 4-speed shifts neatly, although the engine makes so much torque its often unnecessary. Theres even a decent amount of trunk space for a weekend trip and an AM/FM head unit for entertainment along the way. The black convertible top is in decent condition and stows easily, and if youre doing it right, youll only need it for emergencies. The reason for the top-down driving is the engine, which has one of the most wonderful exhaust notes this side of an Aston-Martin. The 2.5 liter inline six is plenty potent in the lightweight roadster and thanks to proper maintenance all its life, this one runs like it should. Twin carburetors inhale through a factory air filter assembly and the condition of all the little parts, clamps, wiring, and fasteners suggest someone has always loved this car. Its not detailed for show, but theres plenty of recent service work and you cant argue with how it runs. The aforementioned 4-speed shifts beautifully and thanks to a new clutch, action is light so youll feel right at home within a few miles of getting behind the wheel. The all-independent suspension is a pleasant surprise on a car in this price range and the exhaust system sounds spectacular a full bore. Minilite alloy wheels are always right on a British roadster, and the 185R15 Michelin redline radials are very much like what it would have worn originally. This TR6 is fully sorted, and has been owned by an experienced enthusiast, so it works as it should and is a delight to drive. Call today!
