Introduced in 1969 as an upgraded version of the original GT6, the Triumph GT6+ Mk II offered revised styling cues, a re-engineered rear suspension, and an uprated 2.0-liter inline-six Vitesse engine. This 1970 example is said to have undergone a multi-year cosmetic and mechanical restoration under the previous ownership, including a refinish in black with a grey racing stripe over a black and silver interior. Reportedly a lifetime California car, this GT6+ is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California.

Featuring a fastback coupe design, this GT6+ is said to have been refinished in black with a grey racing stripe as part of the restoration under previous ownership. Details include a louvered hood with vents, polished front bumpers and rear bumperettes, chrome accents, bullet-style mirrors, pop-out rear quarter windows, side vents, and pronounced fender flares & wheel rear arches. Quad exhaust outlets have been added, along with police badging and country stickers. It rides on 13” alloy wheels mounted with new General Altimax RT tires. Additional images are provided in the gallery.

The cabin has been completely restored with black vinyl complemented with grey seat inserts and wood veneers. Amenities include a 3-spoke black-finished steering wheel, wooden shift knob, center armrest, cloth headliner, and an aftermarket cooling fan. All gauges, electronics, and accessories are reported to be working properly.

Beneath the hood lies a 2.0-liter inline-six engine which is said to have been rebuilt as part of the restoration. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 4-speed manual transmission. Compared to the GT6 Mk I, the GT6+ offered a revised rear suspension with reversed lower wishbones and Rotoflex driveshaft couplings along with upgraded brakes including a dual circuit system and tandem master cylinder. The seller states a host of receipts from the restoration will accompany the sale.

This sale will include a clean title and some documentation.

 

The seller would like you to know: “This immaculate triumph was part of the LA Auto Museums British car exhibition following its multi-year restoration where every drive train component was refurbished or replaced and comes with a stack of receipts as well as the interior and exterior the car runs perfectly and is absolutely beautiful.”

    Thanks to everyone who’s checked out my listing, we’re headed into the last 24 hours and I want to thank the team at PCM, they were incredibly helpful and thorough in creating my listing and really went above and beyond!
    If you’re in the San Diego area and want to come look at the car in person you can message me and I’d be happy to make it happen
    You won’t even find a running gt6 at this price so bid with confidence and I’ll be here to answer any questions you could possibly have until the end of the auction!
    Thanks!

  • sowards20 (seller) 8 months, 2 weeksago

    @DrT the car was set at the factory ride height when the suspension was restored, if it looks high I’m guessing it’s just the angle of the picture

  • sowards20 (seller) 8 months, 2 weeksago

    @DrT just under 3k in fourth, but you can get to 70 in third, the overdrive cars had a lower gear ratio so just a lot more shifting for the driver, but you’ll be shocked at how much torque and power this car has at pretty much any RPM, I know I was!

  • DrT (registered bidder) 8 months, 2 weeksago

    seller: without overdrive you mention that it's not needed. What is the car tach-ing in fourth gear at 70 mph ? Also, from the side photos the car is sitting very high; why? Thanks.

    I am in Cocoa Fl. Once paid for will you express ship with tracking (no signature required as I travel by USPS ) title, registration and all required paperwork for sale?
    Will you store it while I make shipping arrangements and observe loading?
    Thanks, Jim

    @mitskrap it’s funny you say that, a dark blue gt6 from an Instagram triumph club is what got me interested in them, I feel like the dark colors really highlight the body shape. But the restorer had a very specific look he wanted hence the paint and matching interior and the police badging and the country stickers

  • mitskrap (registered bidder) 8 months, 2 weeksago

    It looks like they did a nice job with the restoration. I did some research on color code 54 and it turns out to be Saffron Yellow. Your black is very striking. I had a '69 deep navy blue so I like the darker colors. I'm intrigued .

  • sowards20 (seller) 8 months, 2 weeksago

    @mitskrap haha, sorry about that, no the black is not the original color, I believe it was yellow originally, the restorer wanted more of a hot rod look

  • mitskrap (registered bidder) 8 months, 2 weeksago

    @sowards20 I guess what I'm asking is black the original color from the factory ? Or did you change colors when it was restored ?Thanks !

  • sowards20 (seller) 8 months, 3 weeksago

    @mitskrap that’s awesome, my neighbors dad had one in college in the 70s, but no, it’s not the original paint, it was repainted by the previous owner with the matching interior during the restoration

  • sowards20 (seller) 8 months, 3 weeksago

    @911online thanks! this one doesn’t have overdrive, it was an option at the time but that put it in XKE territory price wise, but I rarely get out of third even on the freeway

  • sowards20 (seller) 8 months, 3 weeksago

    @Damaho912 hey, thank you, I know I’m biased but I agree! Every car show or triumph event I go to it draws a huge crowd

  • mitskrap (registered bidder) 8 months, 3 weeksago

    Very Fun car. Had one in the 70's. Is black the original color ?

  • 911online (registered bidder) 8 months, 3 weeksago

    Nice looking GT6. Seller, does it have overdrive?

  • Damaho912 8 months, 3 weeksago

    Dang, gotta be one of the nicest/coolest GT6’s I’ve ever seen!
