The car was acquired as a restoration case by it's previous owner back in 1997. t was then over a 12 month period carried out a home rebuild . including . span > interior re trim . new webasto sunroof with colour co-ordinated vinyl everflex roof . uspension . ngine overhaul . ifferential upgrade. 5. 5 x 13 Starmag Alloy wheels. Bespoke twin exhaust to name but a few.
The car was also fitted with a novel removable rear premium sound system that incorporated a muti stack cd system.
The previous owner sold the car at 2012 after 15 years of ownership to the last keeper.
The condition of the car now:
Since 1999 the car has covered just over 5000 miles. two thousand by the last keeper since 2012 in the 2 years of his ownership .
Excellent' likewise out riggers diff . ngine . earbox mountings . uspension mountings all good
The sill sections both inner and outer. floorpan . oot floor . alances. scuttle panel. A “ pillars /B slam/bulkheads/rear inner wings'/ door frames all good. /span>
Outer Panelling: the clam shell bonnet is still sound but has had work in it's time. /span>
Doors/rear wings /rear hatch/back panel all good . there is a small crease in the osf door ( looks very much like it has been caught in a car park by some careless person opening their door into it) there is also what looks like a small indentation below the rear wing swath line where it meets the rear bumper .
I have tried to photograph but difficult to see in shot.
Drive train :
Superb! One of the best sound /smooth running triumph sixes I have come across”running Aldon Electronic ignition. suffice to say no issues!
No synchromesh problems or unusual noises that differ from the usual mechanical cacophony that is typical of this gearbox.
Reading through the invoices the differential was rebuilt with a new crown wheel and pinion 3:63:1
So no problems there.
Slight play in the hardy spicer joint . ot that bad . ut maybe good to change as whilst it did not bother me so much on a 145 mile road shakedown run it has a small vibration that manifests it's self at high speed ( again being hyper critical! )
Woodhead dampers/transverse leaf and front springs” look very good with no problems.
At the time of listing all working bar for the horn ‘ this is not the horn themselves but the horn push on the Mounteney Steering wheel ( readily available)
As mentioned above the car was subject to a full re-trim when restored and it has certainly stood the test of time. the carpets. roof lining . seating door cards. rear panelling . ashboard . rash pad all excellent !
Excellent “ this was also new when the car was restored . ikewise the colour co-ordinated vinyl roof.
The Starmag”5. 5 “J period alloy wheels really suit the car. span > which have no kerbing. tyres very good' shod with 185/60/13's all round .
I. C. E.
As mentioned above ; the car is fitted with a custom built removable cd/multi changer system that incorporates a sound cabinet with subwoofer. power amp. tc this located on the back parcel shelf
and on the rear luggage compartment.
The whole unit just unplugs and lifts straight out !
This again is a bespoke custom made system . hat looks excellent and sounds wonderful!
This was sprayed by the man himself some 17 years ago in a cellulose metallic. he blue really suits the car'
Whilst it has good depth of shine it is not the best of finishes . ver the years it has had further localised paintwork.
The car is perfectly presentable to use as is but as the cars structure is so good and there is hardly a mass of panel work on a GT6 . would repaint .
On The Road:
Once on the road you realise just how small the GT6 really is “making you think this and of course a car from another era of motoring . he chassis is a lot less located that the later monocogue cars making the whole experience a lot more of a living thing . ou ca not sit back and let it drive you ‘you are an active participant in the journey hence the appeal of the classic car” and when you master the gear change and find a nice sweeping country road “ where you can bounce the wonderful sonorous sounds of the sweet six of the hedgerow superb”
The GT6 is a very well sought after classic and with the passage of time and interest around the world for the remaining as they become finite cars is very strong . /span>
This is a very good solid car that Is ready to use straight away and with further improvement would make superb standard bearer of the marque .
Many Thanks for looking and all the very best with you bid!
Please note: the cars I sell are “classic” cars and by nature and age are not of the reliability that is afforded to a modern car (apologies to the classic car enthusiasts for stating the obvious)
Do not expect the car to accommodate you like a modern Mondeo etc. it is 41 years old and comes from a time when you had to drive the car not the other way around”
It sold as a collector's item and due to its age not intended for everyday transport
With all the best will in the world whilst I would love then to stay totally reliable. but being old (like myself! )They can breakdown and you should be aware of this. if you have any doubt about classic car ownership or any of these facts kindly refrain from placing a bid on the car.
