Triumph TR6

 1969

Little summer cutey!


This is a really honest TR6 in excellent driver condition. Drives good and strong with no issues. Master cylinder and other brake work along with a tune-up done at the end of last summer before being stored for the winter. Only driven some 50 miles since. Good tyres with plenty of tread. Has been a summer fun car for a collector for the last 5 years. Always climate control stored and never used in the winter. When we pulled her out of storage this summer she fired up first go (first start in some 3 months!).
A great little fun car for the summer that is not by any means "show-car perfect" but in good running condition that does everything it should.  
A History of the TR6

Collected from Various Sources

The TR6 was introduced in January. 1969. using similar chassis and running gear components to those used in the TR5/TR250. However. the body work. while retaining some elements of the TR5/TR250 design. was externally restyled by Karmann. Apart from smoothing the lines of the car. the design changes also gave the car more boot space. A front anti-roll bar now formed part of the specification and wider wheels were also fitted making the car look low. lean and very fast - which. of course. it was. courtesy of the TR5/TR250 smooth 6-cylinder inline 2498cc engine.

The powerful six-cylinder engine is a reliable until. whether with UK-market petrol injection (150bhp) or US-market carbureted (104 bhp) fuel delivery. The UK petrol intected version was de-rated to 125 bhp in 1973 by by camshaft alterations and revised fuel injection metering. These changes made the TR6 smoother and more flexible.

The TR6 was modified in several respects during its production run and the components affected include the gearbox (ratios) and the optional overdrive (type). The trim was also altered and an air dam was fitted below the bumper from 1973.

A useful option on the TR6 was the one piece detachable steel hardtop which easily converted the car to a neat sports coupe.

The TR6 came to the end of its production in July 1976 (February. 1975 for UK-maret models). In all. 94. 19 TRs were built. of which 86. 49 found homes overseas. only 8. 70 being sold in the UK.

The car retained the appeal of traditional British sports models but had the additional. exciting element of being faster and more furious than many would-be rivals. This combination of tradition and power helps to explain its popularity today.

The two seats are comfortable and there is ample leg room. The trim is functional. rather than fancy. The facia is neat and uncluttered. an endearing feature of most 1960s Triumphs. The wooden facia gives an air of quality. The rear end styling of the Karmann body work is as neat as that at the front. with flowing lines which incorporate the tail lamp units and rear bumpers. The luggage compartment is very roomy for that of a two-seater sports car and an improvement on the boot of earlier TRs. The extended body line gives greater capacity.

The TR6 - the consummation of the original TR line (the TR7 was a completely new model) - is an attractive. fast and very enjoyable two-seater. Its fine performance. good road holding and relative reliability. plus its sheer character. make it a car which is a joy to be driven by the current enthusiast!
