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
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!
