For Sale: 1976 Triumph TR6 in Glen Ellen, California

$27,995 (OBO)

Vehicle Description

This is a gorgeous, unique and totally custom designed two-year restoration of a 1976 Triumph TR6 (ground up, not frame off, as the car was in excellent shape). I bought the car in 1980 with 2,000 miles. I drove it part-time for about five years and then garaged it for 33 years before starting the complete restoration process.

Everything in the car is restored, refurbished or greatly improved. For example, the vinyl door interiors with cardboard backing now sport the highest grade Scottish leather with aluminum and wood backbones along with sleekly designed and low-profile arm rests. Every part of the vehicle was taken apart or taken off the car, sanded and re-sanded, primed, and painted (interior and exterior - including all parts in the engine compartment). Under body was cleaned and painted with rubberized undercoating.

Exterior paint is one-of-kind yellow-lime-gold with pearl flakes. The paint preparation and multi-stage painted process was completed over a three week period (photos included). The paint changes hues from bright yellow in partly cloudy sunlight, gold-ish yellow in direct sun, and yellow-lime at dusk.

Its stromberg carbs were re-built by Walt in Manhattan and the engine and carbs were tuned at the British shop at Sears Point in Sonoma. It has two-tone (bard-wire free) Scottish custom designed and cross-patterned leather interior, including front seats, door panel, and back seats, the middle console (which was custom designed to hide the brake handle with a level surface to put your cell phone, etc. Trunk is also redesigned to hold the woofers for the stereo system with leather placed on trunk lid bottom, sides of trunk and floor of trunk with a see through plastic glass panel showing the woofers (woofers also have their separate volume dial in trunk. Custom rear struts and custom redesigned center-cut dual exhaust pipes, new JVC hi-fi stereo with tweeters and mid-range in the interior and woofers, as mentioned, in the trunk that is covered with leather paneling with pipes for sound transfer from woofer compartment to interior. 

It has 59,258 miles, but only 230 since the restoration. It drives and rides as well as any in its class and looks like the next Bond car with new red line tires, solid Teak dash, Walnut steering wheel, custom center console, center cut exhaust pipes, and chrome hex bolts and screws throughout. This is one of the most beautifully restored custom TR6s on the planet!

I call it the TR6-C3 (Custom Concours Classic), though it does not have an official rating as a concours vehicle. The new owner will have a very specially designed vehicle.
