Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1972 Triumph TR6. This example is an older but very well-sorted restoration presented in its original color of Pimento Red with a black canvas top and interior. Long-term current owner purchased this car in 1988 from the original owner and embarked upon a three-year, frame-off restoration from 1989 to 1991. The car has been carefully maintained by marque experts and driven approximately 25,000 miles since. Reluctantly offered for sale by its enthusiast owner of three decades.
Engine fully rebuilt in 1990 by McBetts Racing Engines and fitted with a Kent "Fast Road” mild cam and Richard Good "Goodparts" triple Stromberg carburetor setup with custom airbox. Additional upgrades include electronic ignition, an electric fuel pump, an auxiliary oil cooler, a new aluminum radiator, custom independent rear suspension (Revington TR) and custom exhaust -- Revington TR headers to stainless steel Moss exhaust. There's a slight "lumpiness" to the idle thanks to the cam, but the car is eminently streetable and makes noticeably more power than a stock TR6. Carbs are well tuned and the car runs exceptionally well.
Interior shows nicely with good floor mats, seat upholstery, door panels and dash pad. Exquisite Hawaiian wood dash. All gauges are working. Custom Alpine/Sony audio. Canvas convertible top is in good condition except for the rear window, which has faded and cracked with age. Paint is a little faded after 30 years, but there are no known rust issues or bubbling on the topside of this car -- undercarriage is largely solid with the only known issues being a few pinholes starting on the driver's side floor pan and some slight corrosion in the very right rear corner of the car in the lower valance beneath the bumper. New Vredestein tires on stock wheels.
Overall the car shows to a driver standard cosmetically (it would need a paint job to take this car to the next level), but mechanically it's one of the strongest we've seen. It's had just the right performance updates and modifications without losing its quintessentially English charm.
