Truly a 'gem' of a TR6, one of the best we have seen. Formerly owned and restored by a workshop owner for his own use.
1,000 miles on rebuilt engine, twin Weber carbs, chrome headers, all braided steel Aeroquip engine bay hoses, alloy rocker cover, new fuel pump, new washer bottle, excellent wiring, engine bay detailed for show. Really beautiful.
Excellent body, went over the rockers and all of the body edges with a kitchen magnet, no sign of plastic filler. Seems like all the sheet meal is perfect. And floors, body mounts, inner sills, all excellent...no patches, no undercoating, no sign of repair. Excellent interior, seats, carpets, wood dash, dash top, door tops, all new or appearing to be new. A very nice fairly new top, tonneau, and boot cover.
New Minilite style alloy wheels with new 205/70 radials, redone brakes with new calipers, four pipe premium exhaust, modern stereo/CD, spotless trunk, very good chrome and trim, starts instantly, runs flawlessly, 85-90 psi oil pressure when hot, no smoke, no rear suspension clunks (a weakness in many TR6s), everything works properly, one fabulous early TR6.
Just in, ready to drive anywhere.
AND....want something a bit different? We have an excellent dye process, imagine this car with a nice Palomino interior. And for a more classic look, we can easily convert the car to painted or chrome 15" wire wheels. All in all, a wonderful car as it sits and even better with a touch of creativity.

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.
