Up for auction we have a very nice example of a 1972 Triumph TR6. Completely rust free and registered with a clean California title, this TR6 is ready to be driven and enjoyed.
The current owner purchased this car from the previous owner in the Bay area about 5 years ago. Once acquiring the car, the current owner had a new fuel tank installed. Additionally, the interior black carpeting, dashboard cover, and door panels were all replaced with new 2 years ago. Quality paint and body work was completed about 1 year ago in its original and very attractive Sapphire blue color. The body panels are nice and straight and the exterior chrome trim is excellent all around. The convertible top is new and the sale of this car also comes with a new tonneau cover that was custom fitted with all the proper hardware to attach it to the car with the aftermarket roll cage in place. Most recently, new seat belts with Triumph crested emblems have been mounted to the car.
Mechanically this TR6 is very sound. In the past year the car has been checked over, tuned, and completely serviced. Including the installation of a new alternator, battery cutoff switch, drive belt, fuel pump, fuel filter, oil filter, spark plugs, valve cover gasket, clutch master and slave, clutch kit, rear wheel cylinders, brake master cylinder, front brake pads, front calipers, engine mounts, thermostat, rack mounts, bump stops, and tires. The carburetors and distributor have been rebuilt in the last year, and the speedometer has been overhauled as well.
From cold this Triumph starts right up with the pull of the choke and as it warms up the choke can be disengaged allowing the car to settle into a smooth idle. The 2.5 litre straight 6 engine sounds strong and healthy. The 4 speed manual gearbox is nice and tight without any unwanted vibrations, grinding of gears, or rattling. The suspension feels great and the brakes are in good working order as well. Electrically, the headlights, tail lights, reverse light, indicators (don’t self cancel), push horn, and windshield wipers all function. The dashboard is in excellent condition and also complete with all functional gauges.
To sum up, you are bidding on a mechanically sound, very attractive, and complete Triumph TR6 that has had all the necessary repairs carried out to make this a superior refurbished version that is roadworthy and road ready! Essentially all this car really needs is someone to drive it and enjoy it. If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment to see the car in person please feel free to contact me at (310)833-1525 7am-5pm Monday through Friday. This TR6 will not disappoint! Thanks for looking and happy bidding!
