1976 was the last year of production for the TR6.   It was one of Triumph’s most successful open sports cars.   This example was originally imported and sold by British Motor Car Distributors in Compton. CA.   Most of its life was spent in California before being shipped back to Virginia.  

 

Per the original bill of sale (see pic). this TR6 was equipped with the following from Triumph:

 

4-Speed syncromesh gearbox

4-Wheel independent suspension

Front disc brakes

Tonneau cover

Michelin-X radial tires

AM/FM radio

 

Total MSRP was $6. 22. 50.   That is the equivalent of purchasing a $30. 00 car today.

 

The current owner purchased the car in 2010.   The inline 2. 98cc six-cylinder motor with four-speed had been rebuilt shortly before he purchased it.   Although we have no records of the rebuild. the inspection showed that the mechanicals were recently sorted.   Also. the twin 1. 75” Stromberg side draft carburetors were rebuilt.   The car went through a thorough inspection.   They even used laser measurements to check the frame and found the car to be in superb condition.   For the next three years. this owner used it as a daily driver.   He put about 5. 00-miles per year on it.   Recently. he relocated to Southern California and brought the car with him.   He also purchased a Porsche Boxster and is finding that he doesn’t have the time to drive the TR6 as much as he used to.   Since he bought the TR6. he has done a superb job of maintaining and enhancing the car.   He used Abacus Racing from Norfolk. VA to service the car.   They are very well respected vintage British car specialists.   Copies of all the records and receipts since he bought the car are available.   Highlights of repairs/service include:

 

K&N air filters

Triumph Tune valve covers with LeMans nuts (original is included)

Headlight rock guards

Nardi wood steering wheel

Pertronix electronic ignition/distributor

Compression test

Rebuilt gear box

Alternator

Starter motor

This owner invested another $6. 00+ over the last few years to make this Triumph the best he could.

 

Upon purchase. he had a full pre-purchase inspection performed and the car was given high marks.   The compression test results were excellent as well:

 

1)    154  2) 147  3) 155  4) 150  5) 149  6) 152

 

This TR6 was restored in the summer of 2010. just before the current owner purchased the car. As you can see by the pictures attached. the undercarriage received quite a bit of attention.   New U-joints. lower control arm bushings. tie-rod bushings. rear end link bushings. and front-end link kit were installed.   A new front sway bar was also installed to improve handling.   Finally. the undercarriage was freshly painted.   The bright work was also polished and the original wheels were restored.   The engine bay and trunk were nicely detailed as well.

 

As you can imagine. this TR6 is in better condition than most examples on the market.   It not only looks great. but it drives superbly.   It shifts smoothly and accelerates without any hesitation.

 

The condition of the car is what I would describe as a strong street concours level.   The body is in great condition.   There are no scratches. dents. etc.   Of course. there is no rust and the body is very straight with excellent gaps.   There is a small paint blemish by the left front fender (see pic) but that is about it.   The car wears the correct Michelin tires that have over 75% life remaining.   The car is equipped with headlight mesh grills.   The driver-side is missing one clip to properly secure the grill.   The interior is equally nice.   The new walnut dash looks great.   The seats were reupholstered some time ago and the leather has a nice patina with no tears.   The vinyl dash-top appears to be original with two cracks that have been mended.   The soft-top was new when the owner purchased the car a few years ago and is in excellent condition.   There is one small tear that was professionally repaired and it does not leak.   The plastic windows are perfect and have no discoloration.   All the factory Smith gauges appear to work properly.   There is an aftermarket radio that gets power but does not operate.  

 

Whether you want to have a fun weekend touring car or are looking to compete on the local car show circuit. this TR6 can do it all.

 

Included with this Triumph are complete maintenance records since 2010. original window-sticker/bill of sale. driver’s handbook/workshop manual. glove box operator’s manual. tonneau cover. front-end bra. custom car cover. headlight grills. original 1976 TR6 sales brochures. and extra keys.   Finally. a DVD with a complete photo set of car from all orientations and records of compression test and frame laser measurements is included.
