This is a rare chance to own a time capsule Preservation Class TR6 that has been serviced and needs nothing to be enjoyed right away. This Triumph is an original #'s matching 1976 car with 20. 76 miles and excellent provenance.

Provenance and History:

This automobile was originally bought in Texas  by a D. V. M. and Triumph enthusiast.   The factory XXX windshield proudly bears a sticker from the 1988 VTR convention the car attended. The owner was a member of the Vintage Triumph Registry and local Triumph clubs.

In 1996 the second owner had the car shipped from Dallas. Texas to Warwick. Rhode Island. Known service until the car was sold include clutch and clutch hydraulics replacement. new brake servo. wiper motor and door seals.  

In 2006 the car was sold to a  M. I. T. graduate in mechanical engineering and was placed into his collection of 28 cars. He was an avid collector living near Atlanta. Ga. Unfortunately. owner's  health went downhill quickly after he bought the TR and the car was rarely driven. All cars in his collection were serviced on a regular basis. During the last year I have driven the car approx. 1000 miles.

The original sales receipt and invoice are included with the car along with the meticulous records and receipts from day 1.


Paint and Body:

The color combination is the highly desirable Carmine Red with New Tan interior. Paint code 82. trim code 74. The body paint is original with the exception of the bonnet and engine bay which were repainted due to damage from a battery explosion in 2004. The engine was pulled. the bonnet and engine bay were repainted and the original engine was re-installed by Bassett Jaguar at a cost of over 9K. Being original paint on the body. there are some areas where staining from brake fluid. gas. etc. has occurred over the years. Please see pics. The bonnet was recently repainted and the patina does not exactly match the newer paint on the bonnet but looks very good. I had considered repainting the entire car. but due to the scarcity of great unrestored cars of this caliber. I left it up to the new owner. I think the car looks fabulous as is. No dents or rust anywhere.

The car includes a matching hardtop that I purchased last year to go with the car. All glass is original and the top is Carmine Red.   I'm not sure about the paint match on the hard top as I have never installed it and it did not come with the car. The convertible top is in excellent condition with no blemishes and a clear zip-out rear window.

The frame has been treated with Eastwood anti-rust solution. See pics.


All chrome is beautiful and as new.  


The interior is original and in great shape with no tears in the seats.

Engine and Drivetrain:

This is an original overdrive car. Vin # has an O at the end. The overdrive in my opinion is a must have for driving at highway speeds. The transmission and overdrive unit shift smoothly.   I drove the car recently and had no problem cruising at 80+ with power to spare.  

The tires on the car are Michelin X Redlines with plenty of tread left.   A testament as to how few miles are on the car. These tires are no longer available new and are often desired for car shows. I took the car on a road rally a few weeks ago and to the National Triumph Convention (over 200 miles)  it handled superbly.


The suspension and steering are very tight with no clunking sounds.  

Since adding the car to my collection I have done all work needed to bring the car up to running at it's optimal ability as an stock original car. This car can be driven anywhere and needs nothing. It is ready for your collection. to be used as a show car. or daily driver.

Please ask any questions before bidding. Bidders with 0 feedback will be rejected unless you contact me 1st. Inspections are invited. Payment must be made in cash or wire transfer only. Bids by bidders with zero or negative feedback will not be accepted.  Vehicle is being sold as is where is with no warranties either expressed or implied.
