For many, the Triumph TR6 is the pinnacle of the traditional
British roadster. And the green color combo with upgraded tan
interior looks quite attractive. Plus, it has a powerful inline six
motor and fully independent suspension. So it's the perfect mix of
vintage, nimble, and fun.
While all classic British roadsters are attractive, the deep green
seen here is always an interesting choice. After all, it's fun to
have a British sports car in a shade called British Racing Green,
especially when this has the TR6's correct Union Jack on the rear
fender. And this one really seems to take the extra time to get the
appearance right. So the nice gloss to the finish is not only
desirable for a sunshine-friendly convertible, but it also does a
good job of showcasing the good body panels. Plus, the shine of the
newer chrome bumpers adds to the radiant style. It's part of an
overall package that reminds us the TR6 was thoughtfully designed.
The way the hood and the fender join to integrate the headlight
housing; the stylish profile kick-up within the doors; and the
racing-inspired flat rear end with a hint of overhang - it's all
sporty and distinctive.
The snug-fitting black convertible top looks nice against the dark
green exterior, and with one hand, you can take it down to reveal
an even more attractive interior. After all, tan and green are a
timeless color combo inside and out. Plus, we were told the
upholstery was redone about a year or two ago, and so the seats
have a vinyl that looks and feels as good as some people's leather.
And with an older wood finish on the dash gives this a classic
elegance. And this is a true driver's car with a grippy sports
steering wheel, well-placed shifter, and proper Smiths gauges (a
true staple of British classic sports cars.)
The TR6 is particularly coveted for its motor. It has a 2.5-liter
inline-six backed by dual SU carburetors, so it's one of the most
powerful lightweight British roadsters of the era. You can tell by
the ultra-tidy style that this has been well-maintained. And there
are good newer fundamentals like the plugs, wires, coil, hoses, and
brake booster. It fires up and runs with the kind of confidence you
want in a classic driver, and the four-speed manual transmission
gives you full control over the powerband. Add in the fully
independent suspension, power brakes with discs up front, a full
dual exhaust, and a grippy set of Firestone Firehawk tires, and you
have an unbeatable feeling on the open road.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and service
manuals. This deep green machine delivers the best of a traditional
British driving machine. That's why it deserves to be in your
garage. Call today!!!
