1973 Triumph TR6, Excellent Original Car, See Video, No Reserve
You are viewing my 1973 Triumph TR6. I am the second owner of the car. Originally purchased on Long Island just a few towns from where I live now.
This car is truly for the English car collector enthusiast. It has been garaged, properly maintained and pampered for its entire life. I have owned this car for the past 8 years, it has been insured with collector car status and used as a limited mileage weekend beach trip car. It has never been performance modified or gone through a restoration to bring it back to life from a neglected ownership. A true time capsule, almost impossible to find these days.
The new owner of the car will not be disappointed. This is an excellent true survivor example. Read on for a more detailed description of the overall condition of the car. See the video below for a test drive and walk-around.
The body is in bone stock original condition. It has never been involved in any sort of accident. There is no rust through on any part of the chassis or sheet metal structure, all the body panels are exceptionally straight and are in perfect alignment. There have been no spot paint repairs, and needless to say, not an ounce of bondo.There are very few blemishes from daily use such as parking dings and road paint chips. The Pimento Red paint finish has a light patina, put it is all original and holds a nice shine.
The interior is in fantastic condition. There are no rips, open seams or tears on the seats or panels. The original wool carpet is in excellent condition. The dash/instrument panel is excellent, there are no sun stress cracks on the top surface of the dash panel. The instrument panel is solid walnut stained and top coated with 20 coats of hand polished (by me) urethane. All gauges are in excellent working condition. The convertible top is in like new condition.
There are now 71,493 genuine original miles on the clock. The engine starts right up with no smoke or oil consumption. It idles smoothly with no unusual noises. Oil pressure holds steady and high when fully warmed up. The car runs and drives very well. The 4 speed transmission engages smoothly and quietly in all gears. Suspension and steering are very solid with no rattles or wheel shimmy.
Over the years I have done tasteful mechanical upgrade to enhance the drivability including, 100 watt halogen H4 headlights, all new hydraulics (brake& clutch), ansa sport exhaust, mikuni carburetors, new radiator and re-curved mechanical advanced distributor.
I have tried to include as many pictures to depict the true condition of the car. Please e-mail if you have specific questions. Please keep in mind that the car is 43 years old and although excellent condition for its age, due to normal wear and tear, have realistic expectations for a vehicle that been in service all these years.
