1970 Triumph TR6

No Reserve

Freshly restored former US car; solid car when stripped down requiring very few repairs; ready to be enjoyed

Earlier former U.S spec TR6 with CC chassis and engine designation (although V5 says 1970, its likely to be a ‘68/69 model car), it has been freshly restored and finished in bright red, sitting upon centre-lock wire wheels with a replacement black hood –  boxed and not fitted.

The car has been extensively restored by our vendor, a retired panel beater from the Welsh borders, he tells us the car was uncommonly rust- free needing very little in the way of repairs with some photos of the work on file.

Under the bonnet, we find the early carb 2.5-litre straight six, which as a former US example may be the earlier 104bhp unit with lower compression to meet emissions restrictions. The vendor informs us that he rebuilt the engine with new piston rings, main and big-end shells and the valves have been reground. He advises that it is still on running-in oil which will need to be changed within the next 100 or so. There are however no invoices to support this work.

Starting promptly and running well as we moved it around for these images and video the car looks well, and is certainly very shiny. We did note a mark as pictured in front of the windscreen and the interior looks to have been refreshed with black vinyl spray and of course it’s been converted to right hand drive.

He purchased the car in the UK as a car requiring restoration and registered it in December 2021, following its export from Connecticut in July 2021 being the sole owner on the log-book.  The history file also includes photos of the car when completed, going back through the restoration including as a bare chassis and body with all new suspension components fitted and a selection of sundry bills for some of the parts bought including new starter motor, brake pads and head lamp rims.

Ready to be enjoyed with a few small jobs to do to make it your own including fitting the roof, the car looks tidy and is on offer at No Reserve, so the highest bid takes it home.
