the tr6 was one of triumph’s most successful open sports cars. in particular, the 1971 model did not have to adhere to the 1972 and later smog restrictions, making them even more desirable among enthusiasts. many experts have agreed that these are one of the last true vintage british open cars to reach north america. haggerty (as well as other collectors) have shown the values of these cars increasing at an exponential rate. the challenge is still finding a good solid and dry original car.
we believe this car to either have been sold new in california or lived most of its life here and based on the condition, original 65,000 miles as well. the chassis is dry and original. we have records and registrations dating back over 20-years. most of its life was spent in fresno, california. this is probably one of the best places for a vintage british open car to live. it is incredibly dry there. the fresno owner had the car for over 15-years. when he acquired the car, it hadn’t been running but was complete and dry. so, he did a mechanical restoration. after that, the car was only used lightly and eventually put in storage.
the current owner is a southern california vintage car enthusiast. he bought the car about a year ago from a local mechanic who had found the car stored for over 5-years in the desert. the car still ran great and was still dry and straight. however, most of the interior and rubber had rotted away. so, he began to clean up the car to make it a nice pure driver. the following repairs were performed:
rear bumper re-chromed
replaced all the trunk carpet and tire cover
5-original factory tr6 wire wheels with original hubs (original 4 steel wheels available)
refinished/reworked the wire wheels to fit on the car
new coker original tubed correct redline tires
rewired the rear trunk area
replaced all the rubber seals
rebuilt the master cylinder and reserve on the clutch
new clutch plumbing
replaced air cleaner (original air cleaner included)
new points, rotor, distributor cap, and coil
full tune-up/service
installed new pace setter anza exhaust system (the original was still in place but in poor condition)
new headlamps, new buckets and new chrome rims
he also completely gutted and restored the interior:
new dash pad
koa wood dash
recovered original seats with covers from moss motors
new carpets
cleaned up electrical system behind dash
new windshield and seal
in total, besides his purchase price, this owner invested another $12,000 over the past 12-months on this sympathetic restoration. his goal was to keep this survivor tr6 as pure to original as possible. he was careful about not drilling new/unnecessary holes and using correct original parts whenever possible. he really wanted to experience this car they way it was originally intended. kudos goes out to his efforts. the end result is fantastic. the car has a wonderful feel to it. it is easy and light to drive with crisp throttle response and effortless shifting.
the engine was inspected and a compression/leakdown test was performed when this owner purchased the car. although the owner cannot find the results, the readings were spot on. the motor is very strong with great power. it doesn’t burn any oil between services.
the exterior looks fantastic and unrestored. some of the paint is still the original paint. other parts of the paint were repainted over 25+ years ago. the car has a great original patina-look to it. there is some mild checking but nothing significant and it certainly adds to the credibility of the car’s life. the car looks just right on the factory original grey wire wheels with knockoffs. the coker redline tires really finish out the appearance of the car. they have less than 500-miles on them.
the interior looks fantastic. it is fresh, tidy, and brand new. the original seats look great with their new covers. the koa wood dash is stunning and obviously created by a true craftsman. it is a solid piece of ½” thick wood. the soft top is original. the frame is in great condition, but the original vinyl top is tired and needs to be replaced (only about $500 from moss).
when the owner purchased the car, many original parts were still on the car including the original exhaust and even the original tires. based on the condition of these components and the vehicle itself, we believe the 65k miles to be original.
