Triumph GT6 1971 for sale
Worth taking a look at. is a 1971 Triumph GT6. For a 43 year old Triumph. this car is in extremely good condition!
The inline 6 cylinder engine starts up and sounds nice. No smoke. knocking. or unwanted sounds. The dual Stromberg carburetors will need the usual disassemble. clean. and a pair of kits. It has some light seeps. but doesn't leave any puddles.
This is a non overdrive - 4 speed with a recent new clutch.
A short bit of history before I get too in depth.
I purchased this car with the intent of a full restoration. However. due to health reasons. that isn't going to happen.
The man that I bought it from was a professional machinist. and welder. An all around perfectionist! The work that he did on the car is of very nice quality. With his intention being the same as mine. job relocation changed his plans.
When I purchased it from him. he stated that he'd put in the new clutch. rotoflex couplers. ball joints. both front and rear trunions. He also stated that the car had a sunroof. and that he'd patched the hole in the roof. His welding job is fantastic! He managed to fill the hole without warping the top. There is a rough coat of filler that needs to be worked out. then possibly another skim coat or two.
As you will see in the photos. other than the right front lower valance. this car essentially has no rust! The floor pans - where the seats mount still holds the factory color and has a nice shine to it as well. The trunk floor. other than some minor scaling. is solid and shines nicely!
The floor pans - in the footwell area are scaly. but solid. There is a small hole in the drivers pan which looks like more of a puncture. than that of rust. (Meaning. it can be welded closed easily. )
Aside from the battery tray which is eaten by battery acid rather than rust. all of the other areas where these cars are prone to rust. is very solid!
As you look at the right front. you can see that it was in a minor fender bender at some point of its life. Looking at the workmanship. I'm guessing that it was done at a time prior to the invention of the more modern tools such as the nail gun. A couple of hours with that. and some hammer and dolly work would have things whipped into shape in pretty short order. I also feel it safe to assume that the lower valance was replaced from a donor car that had some rust - hence all the rust in that area.
Chrome - With chrome being hard to photograph. I'll state that the rear bumper is straight and there is no pitting. The same goes for the frames and handles of the wing windows (which operate just as they should) the tail light housings are very nice as well. The front bumper is fairly straight and without pitting. however there are some scratches from where the tip of the hood rubbed across it when opening and closing. A result of poor hood alignment. The cups of the door handles have pitting. although the door handles themselves are in very nice condition.
All in all. the doors and rear hatch open and close just as they should. The doors have an extraordinarily nice fit!
Interior- As you can see in the photos. the seats and door panels will need some attention. The carpet is fine for a daily driver. but if perfection is your aim. you'll want something else.
The dash pad has the usual cracks. and the rear trim panels need replacing. The wood dash is in savable condition! The clear coat has peeled off. but the wood is fine. A little sanding and a re coat. and it will look great!
The visors are in very nice condition and operate as they should.
Glass - The windshield has a few small scratches from wiper blades. but no cracks. The door glass. wing windows. and back glass are nice as well. The windows roll up and down. but could stand some lubrication.
Suspension and drive train - The car has Koni shocks all the way around. As stated above. the front and rear trunions. ball joints. and the rear rotoflex couplers had been replaced.
Hydraulics - As goes with any British car that hasn't been fitted with synthetic fluid. the hydraulics don't stand the test of time when setting. This car is no exception! I tried bleeding the brakes and clutch. and I got nowhere! So please keep this in mind when arranging transportation. Neither the brakes or clutch operate!!
The fuel tank has been professionally cleaned and checked out fine having no leaks.
Included with the car is a center dash support. an arm rest with the two knee pads.
I've tried to describe this car to the best of my ability. As time goes on and I think of other useful information. I will add it to this listing. So please. check back from time to time.
If you have any questions or would like a photo of something that I haven't posted. please feel free to ask.
This car is located on the South side of Des Moines Iowa in the airport area. I am available most any time to get together for pickup.
Thank you for your time.
