A fastback Spitfire powered by the 2000 saloon's two litre. six
cylinder engine. the GT6 arrived in October 1966 with production
running until 1973. Like the Spitfire. it inherited what was
essentially the Triumph Herald's chassis and running gear which had
already proved capable of handling six-cylinder power when
developed for the Vitesse saloon. A comfortable ride was considered
vital for the all-important North American market so the GT6
inherited the Herald/Spitfire's softly sprung rear swing axle
though the latter arrangement would be superseded by lower
wishbones on the GT6 Mk. II. At the same time the engine received a
power boost courtesy of the TR5 cylinder head and 'hotter'
camshaft. maximum output increasing from 95 to 104bhp. The
restyled. last-of-the-line. Mk. III adopted the contemporary
Spitfire's simpler 'swing-spring' rear suspension. Brisk
performance (100mph+) and stylish. the GT6 well deserved its 'mini
E-Type' sobriquet and today. is one of the most sought after of
post-war Triumph sports cars with only 13. 42 Mk. III examples
manufactured.

Originally registered on 15th September 1972. this
GT6 is a sound example although a little light re-commissioning is
required. The 1998cc engine starts and runs well and we are advised
she drives well. These stylish sports-cars have become highly
sought after of late and an example such as this represents an
ideal opportunity to obtain one at a reasonable cost. The bodywork
shows little sign of corrosion although the interior would benefit
from some time and investment. Supplied with a V5 registration
document. this Triumph could well prove to be a fine
investment.
