1973 Triumph TR6


  • Lots of recent bodywork
  • New interior
  • Recently serviced


Powered by their smooth petrol-injected 2.5 litre straight six, the Triumph TR6 was one of the last true British sportscars built by the Triumph Motor Company. Built between 1969 and 1976, they delivered great classic looks with a decent amount of performance for a reasonable price and remain to this day, a very sought after car. 

This one, used regularly by the previous owner throughout his 20-year ownership, has been slowly restored throughout that time. Unfortunately, the current owner’s intentions to complete the restoration have been cut short due to loss of garage space. 


  • First registered in 1973
  • Enthusiast owned from 2002 to 2022, the previous owner, an engineer, enjoyed the car regularly on high days and holidays, clocking up a moderate 500-1000 miles per year until his health deteriorated in 2018 forcing its sale
  • Much of the work and maintenance during his ownership was carried out himself so there isn’t a great deal of paperwork documenting the history
  • Historic vehicle – MOT and Tax exempt
  • Current owner has had it fully serviced 
  • Comes with repair operation manual and parts and accessories book
  • Spare wheel, brace and jack
  • 1 key
  • Currently SORN’d


  • New tan leatherette seat covers and interior
  • Upgraded wooden steering wheel, dash and gear knob
  • Switchgear and touch points show signs of wear commensurate with age but all add a nice patina to the cabin
  • Vendor advises the electrics might need attention, hence the provision of a new wiring loom
  • Door cards nice and clean
  • New carpets fitted
  • Rubber door seals have perished in places but new ones are included with the cars sale


  • Red paintwork with a few chips in places and some bubbling to the bonnet and boot area
  • New floor panels to the rear of the car 
  • Small cracks to side indicator and n/s rear indicator lights
  • New soft-top fitted five years ago 
  • Wheel arches all look good
  • Some very small specs of beige paint scattered to rear and passenger door
  • Scratches and imperfections to be found throughout as illustrated in the photos, but importantly no major dents, just a very small one to rear beside petrol cap
  • Rubber perishing in parts, particularly under windscreen
  • Bonnet is very slightly raised and not sitting properly
  • Chrome pitting in parts, particularly front bumper
  • Recently refurbished Wolfrace wheels
  • Good tyres all round
  • Tonneau cover included


  • 2.5 litre straight-6 engine
  • 4-speed manual gearbox
  • Vendor advises that it starts on the button and drives very well
  • Will need re-wiring at the front. The wiring loom which has already been purchased is included with the car
  • The car has been undersealed with rust protection
  • Recently fully serviced only 2 months ago 
  • Nice and tidy engine bay
  • New alternator fitted last year
  • Numerous spares provided including original dash, front wiring loom and original rocker cover


The classic TR6 has always been a favourite among classic British sports car circles, and this one has had a great deal of mechanical attention over the years and with a little further attention to the paintwork and some finishing touches to the interior this is one Roadster that will surely be out on the road this summer with a hard-to-remove grin on the driver’s face.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
