Built for seven years from 1969 through 1976, the TR6 succeeded the
TR250/TR5 model. The TR6 body was designed by the German company
Karmann and would appear quite a bit different then its Predecessor
but in actuality would be largely similar sharing the same chassis,
engines, running gears, doors, windscreen and much more. In fact
the only changes that came to the TR6 over that seven year run were
bumperettes added for US sales and production numbers would change.
This particular TR6 appears to have had a cosmetic restoration done
in the mid-1980's. That being said, it has not held up that well.
Restorations were done a lot differently then vs. now. The has rust
including some rot in a few areas as well as support areas. The
body has some rust as well but can be salvaged. The interior is in
fair condition and there is a brand new convertible top still in
the box for this car. The car starts up nicely, idles well with
virtually no start up smoke and once warm seems be just fine. The
car shifts well with no noise in either up shifting or down
shifting. This TR6 came in with brakes, in fact the consignor drove
the car here from a ways away after he did the brakes but have
since lost pressure. Guessing they need bled again. The lights work
as do the gauges it seems. There is overspray and surface rust in
the engine bay. This car does come with some spare parts as another
restoration was started but never happened.
