For Sale: 1976 Triumph TR6 in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1976 Triumph TR6 is the right mix of originality and care. It makes for the kind of value-priced classic that turns back the clock the moment you turn the key.

We love the TR6 for its mix of well-formed European lines mixed with a touch of the bold in the flared fenders and chrome bumpers. The factory-correct Carmine Red paint is a classic lacquer finish, and it's showing its age. So this is even suspected of being the original application. There are plenty of people who see the value price as a way to leave room in your budget for new paint, seals, convertible top, etc. that bring this back to show-worthy status. While that's true, we also really like what this one represents today. The body has a straight and clean look of quality and the finish will never make you worry about random stones on the highway. So you get to drive this with the kind of freedom that really lets you enjoy the open road. And there's something quite cool about the person who shows up in a well-worn classic drop-top. It's like a well-aged leather jacket that tells the world you run on your own path.

The tan interior has a good look against the red exterior. Also just like the exterior, this has a worn-in style that looks highly original while remaining quite complete. There are even the right period-correct upgrades like coco style floor mats and a vintage AM/FM radio. And you know this is a driver's car from the moment you sit down. The grippy sports steering wheel, well-placed shifter, and a dash full of Smiths gauges engage the enthusiast in you.

The engine bay has the solid look of proper care. And we know why this would be so well kept. The 2.5-liter inline-six backed by dual SU carburetors was a terrific package that gave you much more power than the average British roadster. So the TR6 was a driver's car, and this one really loves to put a driver-ready attitude forward. So the motor fires up eagerly, makes a nice exhaust note, and you have full control with the four-speed manual transmission. And the fully independent sports suspension, front disc brakes, and nimble steering give it a confident feeling on the road.

What makes this one so appealing is its ability to let you choose your own path. You can have the appearance of carefree enjoyment or you can use the value price to re-invest in personalizing and upgrading your classic. So if you love a great British drop-top don't miss this intriguing Triumph. Call now!
