1971 Triumph TR6

Fantastic UK PI spec example (CP commission No.) in rare Mallard Green with black interior, walnut dash and wire wheels - one of the best we've seen

Dating from January 1971 (built 1970 according to chassis no.) this fantastic example of the popular TR6 PI is a UK origin car and is finished in divine Mallard Green, an exceptionally rare colour which looks almost black in photographs yet gleams in daylight.

Coming to us from a very particular and careful Irish collector the car looks fabulous and is, we think, one of the nicest TR6’s we’ve been lucky enough to see. The car’s commission number begins CP designating it as a fuel injected (PI) model, dating from 1970 (CP52772) and therefore a 150bhp model, but without overdrive as there is no ‘O’ at the end of the commission number.

The car was registered in Ireland in September 2013 and has been with our collector since 2018, during which time he has expended time and money bringing it up to the standard we see here including a full re-spray in its original colour, had a new dash fitted, new hood, new carpets, the seats re-foamed, new original fuel pump fitted, new clutch, new brakes, engine works and 5-new tyres along with a re-trim of the boot, electric system checked and all new stainless bumpers fitted.

The car starts and runs as it should, sounding throaty as all good TR6’s do – that noise! The history file includes the Irish log book, and 2 files of information. One file contains useful info on the marque/model and the other Irish SORN docs, invoices, copy registration docs, invoices for parts purchased and works done totalling at least c.£10,000. Furthermore we find the owners manual and Expert guide to the TR6 which will no doubt prove useful.

The car is recorded on the International TR Registry and is understood to drive well with a huge history since our collector owner purchased and recommissioned the car along with 3 sets of keys. The TR6 was previously registered in the UK however, the registration has been recorded incorrectly on the Irish import docs as KEHTR74H. However, the vendor has undertaken to supply a NOVA numer for the car on successful sale, which should incur no duty given it was originally a UK supplied example.
