With a nice level of originality, worthwhile upgrades, and a strong-running motor, this 1976 Triumph TR6 reminds us exactly why we love the open road.
Triumph only offered an official British Racing Green color on the last few years of the TR6, so it's great to have one of the few that was originally finished in this proper classic hue. This history is also why the car was treated to a proper professional respray later in life that has a nice clearcoat shine – exactly what you want on a sunshine-friendly droptop. This was the final year for the TR6, and so this car closes the book on a great tradition of sleek British convertibles with rounded lines. So it's nice to have a car with great classic European sports car details – from the stone screens over the headlights to the luggage rack on that back that's perfect for a picnic basket.
The tan folding roof has a timelessly attractive look against the green paint. And the full roll-up windows give this the kind full enclosure that was not part of the earlier British convertibles. But we all really know a car like this was meant to be open to the world... in fact, this one has been upgraded to maximize this feeling. For example, the AM/FM/CD stereo means upgraded driving tunes, and there are extra outlets to charge your devices. Also, you might have seen the pattern on the bucket seats? Not only does it look like you could combine the green and black checker pattern to get the dark exterior color, but also finishing it in comfortable cloth means never worrying about hopping into this car on a hot day. Even with these upgrades, you never lose the classic ideal driving experience that comes from a well-placed gearstick, grippy sports steering wheel, and a dash full of classic Smiths gauges.
Under the hood is a well-presented engine bay. The date casting on the motor is in-line with this being the original block for the car. Also, averaging less than 1,500 miles annually furthers the evidence of this car's well-respected life. The 2.5-liter inline-six backed by dual Stromberg carburetors made the TR6 one of the zestiest European sports cars of its day. So it's great to have an example that still fires up readily and runs strong. The four-speed manual transmission with the desirable electronic overdrive makes this quite a versatile machine. And the fully independent suspension, front disc brakes, and newer Kelly tires combine to deliver an unbeatable feeling on the open road.
Complete with owner's manual, this TR6 celebrates the love of driving. So you know you'll want to hurry up and grab this example. Call today!!!
