Vehicle Description

West Coast Classics are proud to present a superb example of this 1972 TR6 Roadster Convertible in its original striking 'Pimento Red' (color code 72 paint) with a Black (trim code 11) interior with a Black soft top and tonneau cover and with a desirable vintage 'Judson' supercharger.This is a highly desirable classic British sports car - a completely rust free example of the legendary chrome bumper TR6 roadster with a supercharged engine! The trunk, floor boards, rocker panels and all the typically rust prone areas are all completely solid and rust free - an obviously always garaged example that has survived intact!The car will be sold with it's original owner's manual, spare keys, service records showing a recent engine rebuild and new Michelin radial red-line tires. The 'Judson' supercharger was a perfect addition for the 2498cc engine and turns the TR6 into a smoking hot rod!The original 'Pimento Red' color paint is in great condition and the interior is also quite extraordinary with its original Black bucket seats and matching door panels, a lovely original steering wheel and original wood dashboard. The Black color soft top is as new and the car has its original tonneau cover, original wheels and its original spare wheel in its storage compartment in the trunk. The Triumph TR6 was introduced in 1969 and was a smoothly redesigned successor to the TR5/250. It was facelifted by Karmann of Osnabruck, the legendary German coachbuilders. The TR6 was produced by Triumph until 1976, with the later year models suffering from the same dismal fate of so many other marques of the period, with safety regulations enforcing uglier bumpers and weaker engines. Therefore these 'early' TR6's with the attractive chrome bumpers have proved the most desirable and have gained the common acceptance amongst enthusiasts as being the last true TR.The TR6 also featured an independent rear suspension, rack and pinion steering, 15-inch wheels and tires, pile carpet on floors and trunk/boot, bucket seats and a full complement of instrumentation. Braking was accomplished by disc brakes at the front and drums at the rear. Without a doubt this will prove to be one rare piece of British motoring history - a beautifully unrestored example of an early chrome bumper 1973 Triumph TR6, a perfect example for any Triumph enthusiast or simply any classic British sports car lover to enjoy today!
