The Triumph TR6 was manufactured for seven years from 1969 and
by the time production came to an end in July 1976, it was the
best-seller of the TR range. The bodywork closely resembled that of
the previous model, the Triumph TR5, but the front and rear were
squared off and all TR6s featured inline six-cylinder engines. For
the US market, the engine was fitted with carburettors whilst for
other world markets, including the UK, the TR6 was fitted with
fuel-injection. It featured a four-speed manual gearbox,
independent rear suspension, rack and pinion steering, 15 wheels
and tyres, pile carpet on the floors and boot, bucket seats and a
full complement of instruments. In total 94,619 TR6s were built of
which 86,249 were sold overseas and only 8,370 were sold in the
UK.

This lefthand drive Triumph TR6 was imported from the U.S. by
the vendor who has been using it as his own personal car. We are
advised she drives well with no known faults and is described as a
solid example. The red coachwork is in good order and the seats
have recently been re-trimmed. Supplied with a V5C registration
document and a current MoT test certificate valid until
17th July 2017; TR6 values have increased of late with
the market place realising the potential of these interesting
British sports cars.
