The Triumph TR6 was officially introduced in January 1969 and production ran on until July 1976, by which time over 91,000 had been made, the vast majority (over 80,000) exported, nearly all to the United States. At the TR6’s launch, one press article declared it ‘the last of the real sports cars’. The TR6 was a re-working of Triumph’s earlier TR range carried out by Karmann of Germany – retaining the traditional body-on-frame construction with four-wheel independent suspension, front disc brakes, rear drums brakes and powered by the long-lived Triumph 2.5-litre straight-six engine. US emissions legislation meant that twin Zenith-Stromberg carbs were fitted to export vehicles, rather than the petrol injection system found in the UK. This limited outright power a little to a claimed 106bhp, but the car was still capable of close on 110mph. This TR6 was built in May 1973 and supplied to a San Francisco agent in August of that year as a LHD North American export model. It was purchased in 1990 by its first Jersey-based owner and registered in Jersey in June of 1992.
This is a good, solid example of one of the last true classic British sports cars. It is in ‘ready to use’ condition having been fully serviced & checked in our workshops. A BMI Heritage Trust certificate is held for the vehicle, but little history in respect of its time in the US. The car is currently Jersey registered and we can assist with shipping and importing processes if required. We can ship worldwide.
The bodywork on the car is sound with no substantive corrosion issues. The bright red paintwork is generally in good condition but does show signs of active use. The car’s chassis is equally sound with no marked corrosion. The bright work is good and free from scrapes and dents. In particular, the stock steel wheels with stainless trims are in very good condition, as is the convertible hood and associated mechanism (there is no hardtop with the car).
The seats, door cards and carpets are all in good condition. The dashboard is generally good but has a past split and repair.
The car is mechanically sound, well maintained and drives well. The 83,000 recorded mileage may well be correct, but we have no specific paper evidence to support this. The TR6 has the standard four-speed manual transmission but is not equipped with the optional overdrive. A rollbar has been fitted and the suspension has been fitted with polybushes – the car has seen some light competition use locally.
