  • A fine example of a classic British sports car
  • Supplied with 12 months MOT

The Appeal

Like almost all Triumph TR6s, this little sports car was exported to the USA. Of the nearly 92,000 produced, only 8,000 also were sold in the UK. 
The car seen here has since made its way back to these shores, arriving in 2019 having undergone a thorough restoration. It is now presented in excellent overall condition. The paint work is fantastic, with a deep shine, and the car is reportedly in mechanically fine fettle. 
The straight-six engine is fed by twin carburettors and provides ample power for this lightweight little car, certainly enough to bring a smile to your face whenever you plant your right foot.

Summary

This TR6 is a very well presented example of Triumph’s straight-six sports car, which remains a popular example of the classic British roadster.
Having reportedly undergone restoration work in the US, the paintwork remains almost unblemished and this car gives the impression that it is ready to tackle anything from a trip to the the pub to a grand road trip.
