The TR6 was introduced in 1968, and was the best-seller of the TR range when production ended in 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. The TR6 also featured semi-trailing arm independent rear suspension, rack and pinion steering, 15" wheels and tyres, pile carpet, bucket seats, and a full instrumentation. Braking was by front disc brakes, and drum brakes at the rear. A factory steel hardtop was optional, requiring two people to fit it. The TR6 dashboard was wooden, and factory options included, a rear anti-roll bar and a limited-slip differential.

This TR6 has recently been imported from California, and after inspection appears to be totally rust free. The car has recently had a new clutch, a new brake master cylinder and flexible rear brake hose, a new starter motor, new battery, new carpets, 4 new wheels, centres and chrome rim finishers, 4 new tyres, and a new dash. The trim is good with no rips or tears in the original seats, the hood is good with a couple of small nicks, and the hood tonneau is also very good. Although the vendor has not driven the car on the road, the engine runs, the car goes bacwards and forwards and stops. There appears to be no oil leaks from any of the mechanical components, and everything appears to be in good condition. Cars imported from sunny climes like California are usually rust free, but the trim and paint tend to suffer from too much sunshine, this is not the case for this car.

                                                                This car will be sold without Reserve.
