1971 Triumph TR6 150bhp RHD

Thanks for looking at this classic British motorcar.

This particular example was manufactured on 27th September 1971 and is the first of the 1972 models. The chassis number being CP/75001-0 and the engine number CP/75003-HE.

From correspondence I have information from the TR-Register that the car was classed as having a 'category "A" ' finish from the factory and was the 1971 Earls Court motor show car. There is apparently a feature in the July/August 2001 TR action magazine featuring this. What a Category A finish is. I do not know. The car was not dispatched from Standard Triumph until June 1972 and is believed to be used for various promotions etc.

Back to the actual car. It was originally white and apparently had an extensive rebuild 12-15years ago.

I have MOT's and history going back to 1984. The mileage then was 64. 00 and is now only 86. 00 having only covered 600 miles in the last 18 years. The engine is still the original one with the correct number and I have a receipt for new shells. bearings and oil pump.

I have a large file of receipts and bills for the car. Recent expenditure in the last 200 miles include

* New Bosch fuel pump

*New metering unit. injectors and hoses

*Lunemition ignition leads

*EBC grooved brake discs

*Uprated starter motor

*minilite style alloys and new tyres

The car. prior to my ownership. had been dry stored since the last MOT in 2007. where it passed with no advisories. With the help of a new heavy duty battery the car fired back into life and sounds magnificent. I have drove the car a short distance and the car will be sold with a new MOT and of course is tax exempt. Gearbox and clutch seem very nice.

Looking at the car. the bodywork is excellent. It has the appeal of a car that has been restored very well some years previously. The paintwork has an excellent finish. The engine bay is a different shade of red but the engine bay is very clean and tidy.

The TR6 has a lovely interior. The seats are excellent as are the door panels. The wooden dashboard is also very nice and even the glove box light illuminates. It has a CD player with speakers behind the drivers seat on the rear floor so no ungainly speaker holes. It has a carpet which is not the best quality but has no wear on it. The white hood is good but has a repair to a small tear (not really noticeable)

This TR6 really ticks all the boxes. It is tax exempt. genuine RHD and a CP 150BHP model.  

I buy and sell classic cars. mainly Triumphs. This is one of the nicest  examples I have seen. It is however 42 years old and will need 'tinkering' with as time goes on. So viewing is encouraged and it is a trade sale.

Delivery arranged at a good price. Similar cars wanted

Many thanks for looking.
