Ask any sports car enthusiast what the most sought after British roadster is today and you're bound to hear someone bring up the Triumph TR6... And with good reason! This sought after roadster carries with it a powerful inline six motor and fully independent suspension, so it's the perfect mix of vintage, nimble, and fun. Take for instance this '713 Triumph TR6 that combines a killer color combination with plenty of originality... All for under $20,000! Never having seen a full restoration, this two-owner car is the one to have.
This is a two-owner car that has been in possession of the second owner since around 1976. The odometer reads 57,509, which is reported by the owner to be correct. With a classic look provided by many original parts, this is British sports car distilled to its purest form. Not fully restored, but beautifully maintained and repaired as needed, the result is a bright red roadster with great lines and a ton of charisma. There's a minimal amount of bright work to keep these cars uncluttered, which just makes the bright pieces elements stand out even more. The paint appears to be an older respray, but is of good overall quality despite showing signs of age. It shows extremely well, and the interior is the perfect pair to the exterior red.
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. Furthermore, everything appears to be original which gives this car that classic 1970s British feel...something full restored cars often struggle to achieve.
What separates this from other TR6s currently on the market is the low number of owners, and the length of ownership by the current owner. This car has been driven and maintained while the mileage has been kept down over the years. The condition of the car, which is remarkably solid, speaks to the low mileage and the care it has received over the years. Whether you're looking for an affordable original car to cruise on nice days, or the perfect start to a next-level restoration, this little TR6 is a great candidate!
