Offered for sale is an exceptionally original. one owner. numbers matching. final model year example 1976 Triumph TR6 with just 49. 00 original miles. Finished in wonderfully era-specific. rare and factory original Java Green. this example has been fastidiously cared for. always garaged and maintained. and is consequently fantastically preserved. Used as a daily driver for the first five years of its life. the owner opted to keep it as a weekend driver for the ensuing thirty years. driving it sparingly and only in good weather until his death in 2012. At that point his widow made the car available through a broker with whom we have a relationship. which is when we were fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to acquire it.  

The Java Green finish is one of the best available on TR6s and it cloaks a body that's straight. free of dings or dents and retains excellent panel fits and consistent gaps throughout. All of the glass. chrome and rubber is in great original condition. the deep-dish wheels are wrapped in tires with plenty of remaining tread and the soft top is in great shape. The car's interior is also in excellent condition. the original vinyl seats. interior panels. dash and carpets showing negligible wear for its 37 years. The wood inlay in the dash is original and entirely presentable. exhibiting a light patina consistent with its thirty-seven years.  The car also comes with three spare polished wheel rings. a boot cover and a full tonneau cover.

When the key is turned. the tried and true 2. 5L inline 6-cylinder engine fires right up. idles consistently and pulls strongly and smoothly through each of the gears. The car drives and brakes straight and provides the wonderfully visceral and prototypical British sports car ride quality for which the TR6 is renowned. I recently took the car for a jaunt down the coast to Malibu and it performed famously. exhibiting excellent power and performance without any indication of overheating or anything else out of the ordinary. Regardless of where you go. the car never fails to garner attention and smiles from motorists and pedestrians. let alone from whoever is behind the wheel.

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire an honest. final year example of the storied TR6 that has everything going for it: a one owner car with low original miles. finished in a rare and desirable color. strong and correct mechanicals. solid undercarriage and a body and in excellent aesthetic condition. If you've been in the market for a crisp. fun and sure to appreciate British roadster. this car deserves your serious consideration.

We want this car to go to great home and would be happy to further discuss it and answer any questions. so please feel free to email us or call us at 805-202-4557. You can also visit us online at GoodmanReed.

We've always had an appreciation for classic European cars and over the years have created an eclectic personal collection. We only buy cars that we'd personally be interested in owning and generally only sell things to make room for other acquisitions. That time has come for this Triumph TR6 (if the price is right. of course - this isn't a fire-sale). We try to give accurate descriptions of the cars we're selling. but we're not experts and we encourage and are happy to help facilitate personal or professional inspections. But please do so before bidding. as the alternative harms our ability to make sales to other interested parties who have done their proper due diligence before bidding.

For U. S. buyers a 10% non-refundable deposit is required within 3 days of the auction's end. the balance to be paid within 7 days of the auction's end. Foreign buyers must pay in full within 7 business days of the auction's end. Buyer is responsible for shipping. however we'd be more that happy to help with recommendations and arrangements. The car is listed locally and we reserve the right to end the auction at any time should it sell prior to auction's end. Thanks for your interest.
