An original California collectors' car, it was imported to Cornwall, where its new (Army Engineer) owner took it completely apart, waxoiled every bit and put it back together again. Twice. Garaged all its life, there is no rust, no rot and no welding anywhere. This includes the chassis. I drove this car from Cornwall, then twice round the Sussex Weald to catch and correct all of the (minor) problems that showed up. It has whiplash handling and the sports exhausts howl and crackle on the open road, while delivering an animal purr round town.
All the electrics work; it has an overdrive; New Spanx suspension; new radiator and water pump; heating matrix flushed and cleaned; new brake and clutch master cylinders; the original Stromberg carbs have had new jets; new Fiamm airhorns; compression is tight (less than 15% difference between cylinders) all engineering by Leaders Engineering, Hastings. Original vinyl reupholstered seats by Haywards of Hastings; it is fitted with a roll bar; it has recently been resprayed in its original Triumph colours by Vehicle Solutions, Hastings.

A vintage British roadster can be an expensive proposition both to buy and to service, especially if it has a six-cylinder engine.
I’ve had this car a few years. Like a lot of custom builders, your own car project seems to hit the back burner.
The great Triumph TR6. The TR6 was the last of the old British roadsters and is one of the easiest to live with as well. The Pick of the Day is a 1970 Triumph TR6 located in San Antonio.
The 1969 through 1976 Triumph TR6 was known as the quick, nimble, what-a-blast-to-drive and totally British sports cars of the day.
