I never thought I'd sell my TR6 but the time has come to move onto another project. I purchased this TR6 in 1994 and spent the next five years completing a frame off. nut bolt. washer. seal. etc …restoration. The car was originally white and I had it painted Delft Blue which is a correct Triumph color for this model and year. I also replaced the original black interior with a Shadow Blue interior. The original body and frame were rust free prior to the restoration.  

Here is a summary of what was done to the vehicle in 2000 upon completion of the restoration:

This TR-6 is in beautiful completely restored condition. The entire drive train has been recently examined and is in perfect working condition. Any component in need of replacement or repair was completed. All gauges/lights operate as they should. I pulled the transmission last month and replaced the front/rear seals. re-bushed the cross shaft and cross drilled the fork/shaft and added additional fork pin (common weakness in TR6 transmissions). Just prior to this listing I adjusted valves. timing. carburetors and changed the oil and filter.  

The Michelin red line tires are approximately 13 years old and have approximately 6K miles on them.

You can assume that I have left several items off the list above because I simply can't remember. However. you can confidently assume that every gasket. seal. o-ring and almost all nuts and bolts were replace with grade 8 hardware upon completion of the restoration. I have a file full of receipts for all parts and service.

I have removed all sentimental value and have set the reserve at a very fair price based on watching for months what comparable TR6's have sold for on Ebay.

This vehicle is sold as is and no warranties are expressed in any way. Please email me with any questions as the last thing I want are surprises for potential owners. I will be happy to talk live if first send me an email. Thanks!
