1973 Triumph TR6
For many, the Triumph TR6 is the pinnacle of the traditional British roadster. It has a powerful inline six motor and fully independent suspension, so it's the perfect mix of vintage, nimble, and fun all for quite an obtainable price.
While all classic British roadsters are attractive, the deep red seen on this one seems to perfectly convey sportiness and sophistication all in the first glance. This continuation of the TR series had more muscular fender lines. Even the little details are aggressive such as bright trim ring around the factory wheels that are reminiscent of Chevy's Rally package. There was also no mistaking its Triumph heritage with a flat Kamm-back treatment that was also seen on the larger cars like the Stag. There's a minimal amount of bright work to keep these cars uncluttered, which just makes the bright pieces elements stand out even more. So the bumpers are mirror-like, and the luggage rack is just begging to have a picnic basket strapped to the back for a Sunday funday.
The interior is another hallmark of the great British roadster. With a real wood dashboard full of original Smiths gauges, it definitely has a hand-crafted European feel. The bucket seats, grippy steering wheel, and perfectly-placed gearstick combine to give you the ideal driving feeling. Because nothing is better than your favorite song on a road trip, this roadster has an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo system. And for those times when you get caught out in wet weather, there is full convertible top and roll-up windows.
The TR6 is particularly coveted for its motor. It has 2.5-liter inline-six backed by dual Stromberg carburetors, so it doesn't suffer from the anemic reputation that other British roadsters have. In fact, this is one of the larger motors out of the iconic era of sprightly roadsters. The motor was rebuilt about 20k miles ago, and the solid investment is instantly apparent by the tidy presentation under the hood. In a car that weighs barely 2,500 lbs, it has quick acceleration and the power to keep pulling well into highway speeds. Adding to this versatility is the control you get from the four-speed manual transmission. Take the long way home, and you'll instantly fall in love with the way the fully independent sport suspension and front disc brakes handle in this lightweight roadster. The full feeling is a hypnotic experience that will instantly remind you why the British are known for driving passion.
This classic comes with all the right paperwork, including the original window sticker, bill of sale, a service manual, build receipts, and maintenance records. There's even a car cover and spare components. This is a nicely maintained classic that gives you a terrific driving experience at an unbeatable price. Don't let this deal slip away. Call now!
