Vehicle Description

1975 Triumph TR6

The Triumph TR6 (1968-76) is a sports car built by British Triumph Motor Company between 1968 and 1976. It was the best-seller of the TR range when production ended, a record subsequently surpassed by the TR7. Of the 91,850 TR6's produced, 83,480 were exported; only 8,370 were sold in the UK. The bodywork was generally similar to the TR4/TR5, but the front and back ends were squared off, reportedly as a result of a consultancy contract involving Karmann. With just a seven year production span, the TR6 grew to become a true British classic. The frame, engine, running gear, body tub and doors were similar to the Michelotti-styled TR5 (TR250 in the US). The front and rear of the car was restyled by Karmann of Germany, though one source claims the new squared-off Kamm tail design was from an unrelated Michelotti prototype. A new removable hardtop was designed in-house.

Born in jolly old England and now gracing the West Mallway of our Hallowed Halls we offer for consignment a Triumph TR6 right out of the 1975 model year. A boxy design, tall tires, long bonnet, short square boot, rectangular rear lighting, vinyl seats, a veneer wood dash, Lucas electrics, Stromberg carburetors and a zippy 6-cylinder engine, all go into making the TR6 a true British Sportscar.

Mostly straight mostly rust-free steel panels with good gaps adorn this car with some evidence of body work, touch ups and a few dings on the lower valances. Bathed in white, one almost needs to wear shades when viewing it inside or out. Thin chrome bumpers sans their black bumper overriders adorn the front and rear of this car and a correct chin spoiler is seen in the front. Badging is correct, and the rear of the car is satin black with chrome trimmed wrap around tail/turn/reverse lights seen at the outboard corners. The convertible top, in black, presents with a few tears toward the rear and overall minor wear and the plastic rear window is beginning to show the first signs of hazing. The center hubcaps and trim rings adorn the drilled steel wheels on all 4 corners and are shod in deep treaded blackwall rubber.

A wood dash with only a few light scratches in the veneer stretches across the inside of the car and is surrounded by padded black vinyl. Essential instrumentation is seen in front of the original steering wheel, and are of course Smiths brand, which was a staple of 1970's Triumphs. Saddle vinyl buckets with smooth bolsters and tuck and roll inserts have just the right amount of age wear float in a sea of low pile brown carpeting with saddle piping and an adequately sized storage area is behind these seats. Saddle vinyl door panels cover the door and are looking just fine with their chrome handles and obligatory map pockets. Between the front buckets is the parking brake lever and just ahead of the decidedly British wood knob topped shifter is an aftermarket AM/FM/CD stereo by Pioneer.

An inline OHV 6-cylinder circa 1969 having 152ci, 2.5 Liters for those using the Metric system, is fed by 2 Zenith Stromberg single barrel downdraft carburetors. On the back of the mill is a 4-speed manual transmission and putting the power to the ground is a rear axle weighing in with a 3.80 ratio.

The frame and underside are very clean, and some surface rust is present. A strong gloss black painted frame proves the support for the black rust-free flooring. Areas of chip off of the floor paint reveals a reddish/orange hue underneath. A header feeds down to the dual exhaust piped single muffler exhaust system. Front disc and rear drum brakes provide the stopping power. Front suspension is independent with coil springs, unequal-length A-arms, telescopic shock absorbers (plus anti-roll bar for TR6), and the rear consists of independent coil springs, semi-trailing arms, lever-arm shock absorbers. All well restored and looking spit spot!

A test drive in this Triumph was a blast from the past as this writer owned this very same car. This TR6 runs smoothly, although had to be choked just a bit for smooth idle until the engine warmed up. The transmission shifted up and down smoothly and the braking was adequate. The only frown that crept up during the drive was a nonfunctional tachometer which our consignor had noted and also that he removed the drive cable. Always a snappy handling car, it brought back good memories. Some wind in your hair, and the throaty exhaust sound goes a long way to calm the soul.

No invasive rust to be seen, very nice crisp white paint, a clean interior with a slightly torn but otherwise nice top, and a 6 popper with dual Strombergs you are tooling in British style from 1975, courtesy of Michelotti design. All that's left to say is cracking good show aye what?
