1970 Triumph TR6 PI

AMENDMENT Just two owners from new, the current since 1972; only 74,000 miles; always garaged; a usable example of this brawny British sportscar 

First registered in February 1970, this fuel-injected TR6 has had just two registered keepers from new, the current keeper acquiring it when it was two years old from a gentleman in the West End of London. A letter on file states that the car has always been kept garaged during his 50-year ownership and that the 74k miles on the speedo is genuine. It also states that a new replacement engine block was fitted about 20 years ago.

There are 26 old MOTs on file which show that the car has only covered 7,000 miles since 1985, giving an average of under 200 miles each year. There are a fair few invoices showing upkeep over the years although it never seems to have needed much apart from routine service items. A new alloy rocker cover was fitted in 2008, a stainless steel exhaust system in 2007 and a new green tinted windscreen in 2006.

The most recent bout of expenditure was in March 2019 to address some issues thrown up by the MOT which cost £995 and included an overhaul of the rear brakes, an oil service, new ignition parts, new radiator hoses, new fuel pipes, new n/s/f upper ball joint, new windscreen wipers plus a few other minor items.

The vendor states that it drives well and it was certainly running nicely when it arrived on site, with good 70psi oil pressure, although it has since developed a slight mis-fire, as is apparent in the video.

22/6/22: AMENDMENT: This TR6 is now proving impossible to start. It turns over fine but won't run.
