The Triumph TR6 began its production life in 1968 and ran until 1976. Just over 91,000 TR6’s were produced in the UK, however 83,000 plus were exported to the United States with only just over 8,500 being sold in the UK market. The styling of the TR6 was done by Karmann of Germany since Triumph had a limited budget for the development of the TR6. All Tr6’s were powered by Triumph’s straight-6 engine, combined with a 4 speed gearbox giving the TR6 125 bhp and the ability to drive from 0-62 mph in 8.2 seconds, with a top speed of 120 mph.
In 1973 the TR6 was changed with a milder camshaft and an altered mechanical petrol injection pump being produced which hampered bhp, but made the TR6 more drivable in traffic.
This example of the Triumph TR6 is in good condition considering that it has been running for nearly 50 years. The interior has a speedometer, odometer and rev counter alongside light and wiper controls, a fuel gauge, oil and engine temperature gauges, a voltmeter plus a heater system and a stereo. The roof is a soft top and the exterior is finished in a lovely red with chrome features and accents such as the front and rear bumpers and the fuel filler cap.
Due to its age, this Triumph TR6 is now MOT exempt, and is taxed as a historic vehicle.
