The TR6 is not just a great car, but a sound investment.... -Petrolicious, May 2014, Why the Triumph TR6 is a Collectible The Petrolicious quote above is just one of many endorsements of the Triumph TR6 from the automotive press. Here's another, from Hemmings Motor News in 2006: Although most cars require years of collective nostalgic reflection to earn collectible status, the Triumph TR6 was considered a modern classic throughout its entire 1969 to 1976 production run, a distinction that it still holds today. The TR6 was, and still is, a definitive statement of the post-WWII British sports car. In the 40s, American GIs had fallen in love with the 2-seat MGs, Austin Healys, and Jaguars they discovered when they landed in England. The open-air, lightweight, sports cars were unlike anything they'd left behind in the states. Piloting these quick, floor-shifted, fun automobiles along the country lanes and the cobblestones of narrow city streets was addictive. When the war ended, it wasn't long before the demand for the cars erupted in America where no domestic model at the time came close to matching the British sports car feel. That allure still holds today, and the TR6 is a popular choice for delivering those period thrills in a solidly built, reliable, easy-to-maintain automobile. The particular looks of the TR6 versus earlier TR models help make these later cars more desirable. Commenting on the updated body design and best-of-both-worlds result, Hemmings noted: A clever and comprehensive facelift by the Karmann works in West Germany... altered the front and rear ends of the TR4 design, reshaping them in a squarer, more integrated styling theme. The resulting TR6 was a car that looked wider and very modern, yet aside from varying seat designs, its passenger compartment, inner stampings and mechanicals were virtually unchanged. Offered here in the very appealing and highly desirable combination of Inca yellow over black leather is an exceptional-condition TR6 with reportedly just over 2,000 total miles. The 1976 cars represented the end of the model's seven-year production run. Delivered new in Jacksonville, Florida, this yellow stunner is one of a total of just 6,083 TR6s assembled in 1976. A large amount of documentation-including original owner's literature, original window sticker, maintenance records are included with the car. Most notably, a British Motor Industry Heritage Certificate (specifying a build date of June 6, 1976 and showing the original owner's names; it even includes the name of the ship that brought the car to the U.S.!)-is also included in an impressive 3-ring binder historical file. In all, this is obviously a rare opportunity for the serious collector.. From its large front chin spoiler, to the angled Union Jack/TR6 appliques on its rear fenders, the car shows beautifully; it begs to be driven. Top-down or top-up, the car's sportiness is evident in its styled steel wheels, red-stripe tires, blacked-out rear fascia, signature low profile and wide stance, rear-deck fuel filler cap, dual exhaust pipes, and of course, its two-seat arrangement. From behind the steering wheel, nothing compares to a TR6. The solid wood dash (including the glove-box door), driver-centric, full Smiths gauge arrangement, Triumph-branded 4-speed shifter, and close-quarters seating with ventilated leather upholstery are true to the British definition of sports car.
