Vehicle Description

West Coast Classics are proud to present a superb and great daily driving example of this 1969 TR6 4 speed manual Roadster Convertible in its original striking 'Damson' (Maroon) factory color paint with a Tan interior and with a new Black soft top and tonneau cover and new Red-lines tires.This is obviously one rare and highly desirable classic British sports car - a completely rust free and restored as required example of the legendary chrome bumper TR6 roadster! 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 original 'Damson' (color code 17) color paint is in simply stunning condition and the newly restored interior is also as striking condition with 'Tan' 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 2.5L 6 cylinder engine purrs quietly under the hood and the 4 speed manual transmission with a new clutch shifts smoothly through the gears - an absolute pleasure to drive! 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 and 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 beautiful example of an early, indeed first year, chrome bumper 1969 Triumph TR6, a great example for any Triumph enthusiast or simply any classic British sports car lover to enjoy today!
