The Triumph received a no expense spared in time and money and is a fully restored, imosa Yellow / Black, 974 Triumph TR-6 that was garaged kept since new and has no rust. This is not your typical Triumph TR6, estored to 40+ year old specifications. A lot of resources have been invested to improving the TR for what we are all looking for, riving quickly and safelyon modern roads with reliable and comfort . This is a car that you will enjoy sharing it with others that can appreciate functional, ntique Automotive Sculpture.This Triumph has been groomed to level one show car status, ith a sharp eye on performance, orrectness, leanliness, eliability, odern drivability, ttention to detail and the perfection of material finishes.If you are looking for an all original low mileage car, hinking it a better investment, hen this car is not this car is not for you!I am a firm believer in knowing what you’re buying, ot just letting the photos do all the talking. Below is a very detailed description of this performance inspired TR6 show car.The first phase of the TR's restoration was completed in 2004 to 2005, y its previousenthusiast owner. At that time the car was proudly given a zero mile odometer to commemorate the car's robust, ll systems new restoration and has traveled 3200 miles since. Over the last year the car went through a Phase II restoration whereItook what was already spectacular and above average show car and began to transform it cosmetically and visually to a higher level, ith many refinements, pdates and enhancements. All the parts on the car are ether new, ebuilt or restored to very high standards of quality. When I acquire the car it had very nice 10 year old, ingle stage yellow paint job, ut it did not meet my standards. So on 10-20-2015 it received a very expensive and beautifully executed show quality, PG, ase coat, lear coat, aint job, erformed by the Action Collision Center in Little Elm, X.
The high quality paint job is flawless, roviding a mirror like reflections at every angle. The car was completely disassembled for paint. The doors, ood and trunk were prepped and painted separately. All the lights, irrors, rim; grill and bumpers were also removed in the prepping process to produce this incredible high quality paint finish. The paints surface quality also extends to the door jams, runk, ngine compartment and underside of the car. All the cars surfaces are extremely clean and free of dirt, ust and grime. I just installed a pair of new TR-6 Union Jack stickers on the rear. I also added a new pair of small, igh quality enamel Union Jacks and new metal Leyland emblems on the front lower fenders. I also have a reproduction, 974 emissions engine sticker that goes on the driver’s side, uter wheel well, hat needs to be installed. I also have a set of like new Plexiglas wind deflector wings, nbsp;that clip to the windshield pillars, ot seen in the ad's photos that come with the car.
The Triumphs drivetrain is all numbers matching, riginal to the car and was totally rebuilt and has just a little under 3,200 miles since completion and has a nice show quality appearance with all new and restored parts. The transmission shifts flawlessly, iving you perfect shifts every time and has a new clutch, ew presser plate, ew throw out bearing, ew clutch master cylinder and new clutch slave cylinder. The engine has a very nice K&N type air cleaners and polished aluminum finned valve cover. The heads were shaved and a mild performance cam added. It also has a modern spin off oil filter conversion that uses the most common Chevy filter available. The cars smog ridden, enith carburetors / smog pump, ere removed and replaced with a rebuilt pre-emissions SU HS6 carburetors with larger jets, hich are more efferent and reliable than the originals. The TR-6 is also running the Protronixs, lectronic ignition system, idden in the original distributor. It has a recent coil, ater pump, oses, an belt and strong starter. I just replaced the spark plugs wires, park plugs, ap and rotor. The car received a new Performance Free-Flow Duel Exhaust System by Monza with beautiful chrome tips that have an intoxicating, ange of baritone sounds. I just changed the oil and filter and the car has no oil Leaks (For a Triumph, his may seem like a false statement, ut it true!), 5+ pounds of oil presser. The 2.5 liter six cylinder engine starts easily, he temperature stays below normal even on the hottest days. The cars stock radiator was recently cleaned, as no scale, resh new green radiator fluid. This Six Pack has 135 horsepower vs. stock 106HP. It has a wonderful staccato sound at idle and will pull hard all the way to redline and will easily catch 2 gear scratches.
The TR6 IRS system is the special ingredient that makes the car handle like it is on rails. The IRS system was gone through and has new axels and axels boot protectors. The suspension sports all new bushings front and rear, ew Suplex heavy duty front springs and new Suplex heavy duty rear trailing arm springs, ew front Spax shocks and new rear Koni shocks. This TR also has new front rotors, ew brake master cylinder, ew front and rear brake slave cylinders, ew brake pads and new brake lines on all 4 wheels. The TR6 has a good jack, mall tool kit, ice unused Goodyear Red Line spare tire and new Bridgestone 205-65-15 Petenza directional performance tires on new Mini-Lite 8 spoke aluminum wheels. The cars steering, uspension shocks, rakes, ll feels great and perform well in all conditions, ike fast corners and extreme and highway speeds. When driving briskly you get very positive feedback to the steering wheel. The car has no clucks, queaks or rattles or unwanted vibrations. The parking brake works with authority, ront disk brakes stop the car fast and straight with good control in emergency braking until controlled lockup.
The interior is like new and nicer than any I have seen in the market. It just received a special custom made, urled Ash dash panel that was stained to match the cars yellow paint. The car’s interior is well insulated; it has Dyno-Mat on the floor, unnel and firewall, ith new factory type insulation on top. The TR-6's wood, eather, inyl, loth, arpet, hrome, teel, luminum, lass, lastic, ubber and painted finishes are all near flawless and look new. The interior dash pads are perfect with no cracks, ice black seats, ew black door cards, ew black cards behind the seats, ew black carpet, ecent black rubber floor mats, ew Triumph logo trunk mat, ew black convertible top, ice black half Tonneau cover, new fire extinguisher mounted behind the passenger seat, ot shown in the photos.
All the cars electrical, auges, ights, witches, eater fan, ipers, orn, urn signals, lashers are in good working order, t will pass a safety inspection. All the gauges were just cleaned inside and a new electronic solid state turn signal flasher was added that fixed the common problems that all TR6's have with their the turn signals. I just replaced the recently install fuel gauge sending unit in the tank with a new one, he float had filled with gas, ut still works and is included in the box of spare parts. The head lights shine very bright with its new 55 AMP Bosch alternator and new Wal-Mart battery. The TR-6 has a nice sounding Pioneer AM/FM/CD sound system with remote and 6x9's in the rear in small boxes that can get loud and sound great. A separate modern fuse box was added to accommodate the sound system to take the load off the original fuse box and it has room for other electrical connections in the future.There are very few affordable British cars that give you the raw emotions, ites, ounds smells and performance that the TR6 emits and this one has it on steroids. This Triumph is a perfect car for club sponsored events like rallies, ill climes and autocrosses and can easily take the FTD. If you’re getting older, ike myself and rode on bikes all your life, his is a great 4 wheel transition that your wife will approve of and may even ride with you. This TR6 is near flawless, ery bright and flashy, t will win top honors at local car shows and gets attention where ever it goes. The car comes with two sets of keys, riginal owner’s manual, epair manual, ome receipts and a box of spares, oth new and used very clean high quality custom car cover.
In honest discloser I need to mention the minor flaws:
1. The Mimosa Yellow color is one of the most popular original TR6 colors, ut the door tag indicates the car was originally painted red from the factory, he paint job was done properly and shows no evidence of the color change.
2. The chrome bumpers had their rubber over riders removed, therwise are in good driver quality condition, ut should be re-chromed to bring them to show quality.
3. The passenger seat has a small 1/8 inch long puncture in the vinyl, hat was repaired and can only detected, f pointed out from a very close distance.
4. There is a scratch on the driver’s door glass and a new glass is included with the car but not installed.
5. One of the dust cover boots on the rack and pinion has a split and was repaired. A new set of boots is included but not installed.
I am working on a few of the areas listed above and may have them corrected by time of purchase.
The above details represent a very accurate and honest description of this unique Triumph. This TR6 can be driven anywhere in the United States reliably .To replicate this car, xpect to pay way more than the asking price for just the parts and a year in full time labor. I am not a dealer and the car has a clean Texas title in in my name. I am asking $19,995 or OBO. You can call me any time at 972-207-1115 or email me through eBay.
Compare the rest, ut if you’re looking for the best this is the one!
