Triumph GT6 MK2 (overdrive) 1970 - Walk Around Video Available on Youtube

MOT to May 2023

Please see walk around video for very full details off this wonderful rare car

This is a very good example of the now rather rare Triumph GT6 MK2 in signal red with the correct black interior and rosytle wheel trims.
The car was registered in November 1970 and has covered a total of 115k miles (having covered 29k miles since 2004). The car was fully restored approximately 20 years ago to a extremely high standard. Thankfully there is a photographic restoration booklet with the car and the large history file that contains many many invoices and receipts for the various works carried out.

The car has been maintained extremely well and presents ever so well too. It was a regular on the classic car show scene locally and greatly admired by Triumph enthusiasts.

A bit about the the Triumph GT6:

The original GT6 debuted in 1966 (The Mark one), the GT6 was very much a high performance car back then and it was certainly an all round quicker car than both the beloved Triumph Spitfire and the its main rival, the MG BGT. The original car had a (just under) 2000cc 95 BHP engine with six cylinders, it could reach 106MPH and 0-60MPH took 12 seconds... the MPG was 20. Despite very brisk performance which did outshine the MG BGT of the era.... the rear suspension wasn't well received and high speed handling was particularly poor for such an oversize brilliant little sports car.

The GT6 mark two arrived in late 1968 and was in fact only really available for 2 years (1969 and 1970). The mark 2 offered some rather significant improvements and addressed some of the imperfections of the previous model. The mains changes are as follows:
1. new rear suspension set up using inverted wishbones 2. Rotorflex drive system to turn the rear wheel (also referred to as rubber doughnuts) 3. Engine improvements gave an increased top speed (claims of 110mph), now 104 BHP and a 2 second reduction in the 0-60 sprint, the MPG rose to 25 MPG 4. Cosmetic changes such as a higher front bumper and the addition of side vents.

The GT6 then changed to a MK3 version and tragically lost her wonderful rear end styling in favour of the Kharmann design that was used across the Triumph range, the last GT6's were made in 73 (with some 1974 registered cars out there). The MK2 (or the GT6 plus as some call it) is the rarest as they made the least amount of them. Just under 41000 GT6's were made and 12066 of those were the Mark 2 model. What makes the GT6 so appealing is its sleek, fastback shape penned by noted Italian stylist Giovanni Michelotti, who designed the original Spitfire upon which the GT6 is based. The way the roofline flows back into its chopped-off tail, along with the taillamps completing the rear wing line, makes for a very enchanting look that enthusiasts find very appealing. If you ever see a GT6 parked next to an E type Jaguar... you may well understand why the GT6 was referred to as 'the poor mans E type'.

Back to this actual car, the GT6 was fully restored by talented engineer over the course of 8 years (he owned the car for a total of 12 years), the next owner (also a retired engineer) owner the car for 8 years and has cared for the car extremely well. There is a series of restoration photos and details of works undertaken with invoices that show the spend. The car has remained in excellent order with a small handful of imperfections that are highlighted in my detailed walk around video. Having just spent a day with the car, I can assure you she is a very much get together driving machine that will delight you with that unique driving experience from a well sorted little sports car.

The car benefits from the factory fitting of overdrive, this enhances the touring experience and effectively splits the gearing in both 3rd and 4th gears. The car also has the especially rare addition of the factory 'improvement package', this consists of the following.... reclining seats, kneepads on the gear tunnel, no bumper overriders at the rear, both the lower front grille and windscreen surround are both in black.

There are a few added extras, electronic ignition, oil pressure gauge, spin on oil filter conversion, battery isolated switch, overdrive on warning tell tale light, intermittent windscreen wipers, USB socket, small clock, wooden steering wheel and a period radio cassette player and speakers from Pioneer, 2 x extra GT badge added to the front. Otherwise the car remains fully standard.

We can offer a part exchange service and we can take in both classic and modern vehicles (even light commercials).
We can arrange a full UK wide delivery service at a highly competitive price.

We are based in Overton, Hampshire (RG25), we are just a 10 minute drive from the M3/ A303/ A34 major roads - there is a railway station a short walk away.
