2.5L 6 CYL, 4 SPD MANUAL, PWR FRONT DISCS, GREAT ROADSTER, TONS OF RECORDS!!

For many, the Triumph TR6 is the pinnacle of the traditional British roadster. It has a powerful inline six motor that makes a perfect sound as you tick through the gears, while enjoying the curvy backroads.

This 1974 TR6 appears mechanically well-sorted. It has a great history of being purchased new, by a doctor, in '74. It was sold to its second owner four years later, and she cherished it for nearly a quarter century. After that, this Triumph roadster went into the hands of the expert mechanic who maintained it for the owner. The most recent owner has been a meticulous caretaker since 2011. All of this means a full file that we can trace back more than 35 years of maintenance and care. The Crimson Red exterior is in very good condition today. It looks the way a sporting two-seater should, with handsome cut-down doors, a long hood (bonnet), and matching redline tires. Other details like the chrome and rubber bumpers, the trunk-mounted luggage rack, racing-style gas cap, and the instantly recognizable taillights are very nice, and need no work to enjoy the car immediately.

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. Everything has a deep, dark appearance from the bucket seats to the gearshift boot. Because nothing is better than your favorite song on a road trip, this roadster has an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo system. And for those times when you get caught out in wet weather, there is a brand new black vinyl folding roof.

British roadsters are often known for their fun on the road despite being typically underpowered. That's why the TR6 is so coveted. It's got a 2.5-liter inline-six that doesn't suffer from this anemic reputation, and it's one of the larger motors out of the iconic era of sprightly roadsters. In a car that weighs barely 2,500 lbs, it has quick acceleration and the power to keep pulling well into highway speeds. Part of this versatility comes from the control you get from the four-speed manual transmission. You can tell from one look at the engine bay that the maintenance history is accurate. This includes key components such as the front disc brakes, starter, clutch, fuel pump, and alternator all replaced within the last few thousand miles. In fact, the Stromberg carburetors were rebuilt this summer.

These TR6s are amazing backroad burners, and this one has been cared for exactly the way you'd want for a reliable Sunday driver. All of this is packaged for under $16K, so we know it won't last long in our showroom. Call now!!
