1975 Triumph TR-6 37,615 Original Miles, Java Green, Georgous Driver
This is an extremely nice, low-mileage, 1975 Java Green Triumph TR-6. It's history is known from new, and it has just 37,615 original miles. It runs and drives very well and it comes with the original window sticker and booklets.
HISTORY: This TR-6 was purchased new as a company car for an executive. Although the car was originally from Ohio, it was the executive's second car so it wasn't driven in bad weather. In 1985 the engine was damaged when the car had approximately 30,000 miles (he thinks from over-revving it or a loss of oil pressure from a blown oil pressure gauge line.) He wanted to keep the car, so the company's owner gifted it to him. As a result, although this car technically had two owners, it has had only one driver.
BETTER PERFORMANCE: Instead of rebuilding the original engine, he purchased a 1969 TR-6 engine because he wanted the higher compression, torque, and horsepower of the earlier motors. He then had it rebuilt and installed in this TR-6. He saved the original engine and it is included with the car if desired.
BODY / FLOORS / FRAME: The trunk, floors, frame, and undercarriage are original and in remarkably great condition. The fit of the doors, hood and trunk lid are outstanding and the body is laser straight as you can see from the close-up pictures. It had one very high-quality repaint in the original color of Java Green approximately 15 years ago. The paint has held up so well that it looks like it could have been painted this year.
INTERIOR AND TRIM: The seats, dash, door panels and interior panels are original and in very good condition. The carpets and dash pad have been replaced and are like-new. It also has a brand-new English Dull-Coat convertible top and a new top boot (top cover). The bumpers, chrome and trim are in very nice original condition, showing only minor wear.
MECHANICAL / ELECTRICAL: The engine runs very well and this car is ready for the road. All of the lights and electrical systems are in excellent working order. The wheels were professionally stripped and powder-coated. It also has brand-new, nitrogen filled, Michelin Defender XT tires.
