A very nice car, acquired from a local customer of our's. Body seems to be excellent, went over the edges of the body, rockers, lower doors, around the headlights and even the top body seams with my 'inspection' magnet...stuck everywhere. With very nice yellow paint.
Floors and chassis seem excellent, was professional rust proofed by Zeibart, seats are leather from a Miata (we also have the originals) with new built in headrest speakers, rubber overriders have been removed (but come with the car), chrome is very good throughout, AND new Michelin X redline tires (very expensive and THE tires for this make and model car).
Mechanically seems excellent, 80 psi oil pressure, no smoke, has only covered 48,000 miles since new, very clean engine bay, no clunks in the rear suspension, excellent steering, brakes, ride, etc. And work recently done (much of it by us): 4 new gas shocks, new clutch hydraulics, new master cylinder, new radiator, rear end disassembled and resealed, front end bushings, and other work.
Top is quite good BUT also comes with a brand new top, still in the box. Can't think of much else to add. Exhaust has twin pipes and is quiet, wood dash is very nice, carpets look new, trunk is carpeted and very clean, everything works, and TR6s make fun country road or distance cruisers. The big six cylinder engine is very smooth, tons of torque, effortless to shift, and IF you want a reasonably priced classic car that is comfortable, reliable, easy to own, this could very well be the ideal car.
The Triumph TR6 was a notable high point for small sports cars from the U.K., a handsome and powerful roadster that put some modern flair into the British tradition. The styling and mechanicals were aimed directly at the U.S. market, with more than 90 percent of the nearly 92,000 produced exported from England, most bound […]

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.

As the movement toward the electrification was, so to speak, picking up steam, car designers said they looked forward to exploring the freedom in styling they expected with bulky internal combustion engines being replaced by electric motors and battery packs. To date, most electric cars look pretty much like those powered by petroleum. However, that […]

Everything has to start somewhere, and that includes your first time driving on a race track. Most of us have seen videos of inexperienced drivers cracking up their cars on a track, be it on the famed Nurburgring in Germany or some local road course. It’s ugly and nobody wants to be that guy or […]
