Triumph GT6 Mk1. one of the remaining 19 vehicles left. according to How many Left website. nbsp;

Original vehicle. now showing signs of its age. I purchased the car 31. 07. 2010 from Cleavewood garage in Bristol. where it had spent its whole life. with all intensions of restoring her back to as new. nbsp;but never got around to doing it. and now know it will never be finished and needs TLC. before another classic is lost forever. /p>

Used as dally transport for two years in any weather so very reliable. but now showing its age. /p>

Its had good care whilst in use. with the following items fitted and completed. /p>

Both front suspension legs rebuilt. with new springs. brake calliper's pads and disks. overhauled suspension arms fitted with new bushes. fitted with Canley Classics front trunnionless front king pins. so no collapsed front arms. also fitted with greasable top ball joint. and track rod ends. /p>

Both rear suspension and half shafts replaced. with Canley classic overhauled units. all bushes replaced . all brakes replaced with new cylinders shoes drums 

All wheel bearings replaced at time of conversion in 2012

The car had a new clutch fitted. and engine checked over with new propshaft being fitted. the engine being given a clean bill of health. new crank thrust washers being fitted. The engine smokes slightly but compression checks all ok. all this work was completed by Total Triumph in Cheshire in 2010. /p>

I overhauled an original open push rod spare head. nbsp;making it unleaded. with hardened seats and guides. but when I rebuilt it. as per the manual. I didn't fit any valve stem oil seals ( my mistake ) now it smokes a little which it didn't before. but not excessively passes MOT test ok. /p>

Due to my work commitments at the time. and only having weekends to do the work. so i purchased old units and refurbished them completely. prior to them being fitted. so the sale comes with a large selection of spares both used and new. as can be seen in the enclosed photographs. nbsp;

I was going to fit an overdrive to the car. but never got around to doing it. so it comes as shown with an overhauled gear box. checked and rebuilt with new bearings. seals. etc.  

Due to me using the vehicle as only transport. no expense was spared. due to it having to be correct from first use. and reliability. the gearbox is fitted with the D type overdrive. which was professionally overhauled by ORS Overdrive Repair services in Sheffield in March 2011 which I have the receipt for. A shorter new propshaft is supplied and the correct ration Differential ( requires rebuilding all parts supplied )  

The sale as shown. comes with two large boxes of spares. including swing spring set up. brand new. nbsp;never fitted . was going to fit when I fitted the O/d unit. comes with the upgraded. larger diameter antiroll bar. as suggested for use with a swing spring. lots and lots of bits too many to list

5 x Goodyear GT2 tyres all new. please see the photos. /p>

The car had a poor re spray. some time in its life. before I purchase it. which was just a quick blow over. and isn't excellent. from a distance it looks good. close up you can see the faults. /p>

Please remember. this is a used 47 year old car. nbsp;and not concourse. /p>

There is no Buy it now price. and you bid to buy. cash on collect please. from South Manchester 5 minutes from Manchester Airport. M22. the vehicle comes with every thing shown in the pictures. plus maintenance manuals. parts and tools as shown. and any else I can find. /p>

Also comes with a large file of previous history. saved by the last owners. including nearly all the Mot`s. and some history. and the original green log book. /p>

I am the forth owner from new. the previous owners knows the original owners. so all history can be traced. /p>

I am not a dealer. just a classic car enthusiast. I have tried to be as honest as possible. so please look at the pictures and decide if its the car for you.

I would like to keep it. but a 1967 Mg Midget I have been restoring for the last 10 years comes first. and it is a shame to see the GT6. sat not being touched. the car has only done 68 miles since last MOT. so now is the time for her to go to a new home. and some TLC. and fingers crossed an owner to look after her. she needs love and a garage. /p>

Thanks for looking. and good luck if you decide to bid. you wont be disappointed.

Please remember you are bidding to buy. not to view. a winning bid means you have purchased this car. cash on collect please. /p>

Please contact me if you need any other information. /p>

Just been taxed ( free ) due April 2015

Mot due July 2014


Good Luck. /p>
