Please note that experience shows us that the photobucket of over 100 large pixel pictures posted here are in most cases best viewed and downloaded using the very latest and most updated version of the 'Firefox' browser as some other browsers and especially older browser versions are not capable of accommodating the size of the download. Over the years our clients have overwhelmingly been appreciative of our many unaltered large pixel photos posted in our ads and our feedback has been that it is very rare that a dealer will post all but the most flattering of professionally finished photographs. We prefer to post the many photos taken of the car, in sometimes unflattering but natural sunlight, in order for our prospective buyers to be able to see true and reliable images of the car advertised and that is the reason for some seemingly duplicated shots. We trust you will agree.
West Coast Classics are proud to present a superb and great daily driving example of this 1973 TR6 Roadster Convertible in its original striking 'Sapphire Blue' color paint with a Black interior with a Black soft top and tonneau cover and fully loaded with the rare factory overdrive option which was a very desirable feature because it gave drivers close gearing for aggressive driving with an electrically switched overdrive which could operate on second, third, and fourth gears on early models.
This is obviously one rare and highly desirable classic British sports car - a completely rust free example of the legendary chrome bumper TR6 roadster! The trunk, floor boards, rocker panels and all the typically rust prone areas are all completely solid and rust free - an obviously always garaged example that has survived intact!
The original 'Sapphire Blue' (color code 96) color paint is in simply stunning condition and the interior is also quite extraordinary with its original Black (trim code 11) bucket seats and matching door panels, a lovely original steering wheel and original wood dashboard. The Black color soft top is as new and the car has its original tonneau cover, original wheels and its original spare wheel its storage compartment in the trunk. The 2.5L 6 cylinder engine purrs quietly under the hood and the 4 speed manual transmission with factory Overdrive shifts smoothly through the gears - an absolute pleasure to drive!
The Triumph TR6 was introduced in 1969 and was a smoothly redesigned successor to the TR5/250. It was facelifted by Karmann of Osnabruck, the legendary German coachbuilders. The TR6 was produced by Triumph until 1976, with the later year models suffering from the same dismal fate of so many other marques of the period, with safety regulations enforcing uglier bumpers and weaker engines. Therefore these 'early' TR6's with the attractive chrome bumpers have proved the most desirable and have gained the common acceptance amongst enthusiasts as being the last true TR.
The TR6 also featured and independent rear suspension, rack and pinion steering, 15-inch wheels and tires, pile carpet on floors and trunk/boot, bucket seats and a full complement of instrumentation. Braking was accomplished by disc brakes at the front and drums at the rear.
Without a doubt this will prove to be one rare piece of British motoring history - a beautifully unrestored example of an early chrome bumper 1973 Triumph TR6 with factory overdrive, a perfect example for any Triumph enthusiast or simply any classic British sports car lover to enjoy today!
