Description
 
By the time the TR6 was launched in 1969, Triumph's sports car range had grown up and become a lot more sophisticated than the primitive TR2s and 3s of the 1950s. German coachbuilder Karmann was given the task of updating Michelotti's attractive TR4/5 styling, employing a wider grille and Kamm tail for a lower, more modern look. The TR6 retained the straight six engine employed in the previous TR5/TR250 models, again with Lucas mechanical fuel injection for the UK market. The TR5 pioneered the use of fuel injection in the UK and initially developed 150 bhp, later detuned to 125 bhp to improve reliability, but failure to meet US emission controls meant twin Stromberg carburettors were used in America. The gearbox was a four-speed unit with synchromesh on all gears, plus overdrive on third and fourth. Inside there was carpeting in the cabin and boot, comprehensive instrumentation and a facia of walnut veneer. Production of the TR6 continued until 1976, when it was replaced by the controversial TR7 and many feel it represents the last of the traditional Triumph roadsters. The TR6 makes an excellent alternative to the more common MGs, with parts availability presenting no problems, added to which the old school driving experience of the six-cylinder Triumph is certainly a lot more enjoyable than most modern cars. This is a very rare time warp example of this great British sports car and we are pleased to be able to offethesis unique example which has only covered 2000 miles from new! Repeat, 2000 miles only. Finished in Old English White with Black interior.
