Introduced in January 1969, the Triumph TR6 was essentially a facelift version of the earlier TR5 model completed by German coachbuilder Karmann, which added a squared-off nose and tail, giving the car a more contemporary appearance. Underneath the revised body it was much the same as the TR5 with a separate chassis and a front-mounted 2½ litre straight-six powering the rear wheels through a four-speed gearbox. Independent rear suspension and rack and pinion steering were inherited from previous models, although a front anti-roll bar was added. The UK market TR6 was fitted with Lucas fuel injection and in 1972 a revised camshaft profile and reduced compression ratio (from 8.5:1 to 7.75:1) were introduced that reduced the claimed power output slightly to 125bhp. The following year a new front airdam was fitted, headrests were made standard and the switchgear and instrumentation was revised. For 1974, overdrive became a standard fitment. This car was first registered in the UK in 1975 and underwent quite extensive restoration/renovation work between 2004 and 2006 before being imported to Jersey in 2009.
This is a fine example of a UK-specification TR6 which has benefitted from many useful owner-installed upgrades and additions, whilst having been correctly and conscientiously maintained over the last decade. There is an extensive history file detailing recent expenditure; a photographic record of the restoration works carried out in 2004-6 and MOT history from 1988 until import to Jersey in 2009. Whilst the car is Jersey registered, it is currently located in Dorset and viewing can be arranged by appointment. We can assist / advise with the importation process if required, but any import duties (currently 5% into the UK) would be additional to the advertised price.
The Carmine Red paintwork is in fine condition as is the car’s brightwork and the Minilite wheels fitted. The chassis looks equally solid, having last been Waxoyled in 2015. A roll cage has been installed and new mohair hood was fitted in 2014.
The interior is in very good order. The wooden dash is unmarked and all instruments are present and correct. Uprated, black leather, Mazda MX5 seats have been fitted. The carpets, door cards and tonneau cover are all in fine fettle.
The car drives very well, the current enthusiastic owner having carried out many useful, yet sympathetic upgrades and additions - electronic ignition; sports exhaust manifold & back box; electric cooling fan; aluminium fuel tank and Revington TR Logic Switch Overdrive – whilst keeping the vehicle well maintained and in good order. The running gear benefits from recent suspension work with uprated Koni shock absorbers fitted front and rear. New rear tyres were fitted in 2020.
