1973 Triumph TR 6
The TR6 was introduced in 1968, and was the best-seller of the TR range when production ended in July 1976. The bodywork closely resembled that of the previous model, the Triumph TR5, but the front and back ends were squared off. All TR6 sports cars featured in-line six-cylinder engines, and like the TR5, the TR6 was fuel-injected for all markets except the US, hence the TR6 PI designation. The Lucas mechanical fuel injection system helped the home-market TR6 produce 150 bhp at model introduction. Later, it was detuned to 125 bhp.
The TR6 featured a four-speed manual transmission with an optional overdrive unit. The TR6 also featured semi-trailing arm independent rear suspension, rack and pinion steering, 15-inch wheels and tyres, pile carpet, bucket seats, and a full complement of instrumentation. Braking was by disc brakes at the front and drum brakes at the rear. A factory steel hardtop was optional, requiring two people to fit it. The TR6 dashboard was wooden (plywood with veneer). Other factory options included a rear anti-roll bar and a limited-slip differential.
This low mileage example has only covered 63,500 miles, and has almost every MOT and a large number of service and repair invoices to substantiate this. It also has a Heritage Certificate to verify that it was manufactured in December 1972. The mechanicals are superb and the body has recently been refurbished to a very high standard. The interior is also good with a new wooden dash. The soft top is excellent, as is the factory hardtop, which makes this a very desirable car in all round superb condition.
