Up for auction is this 1974 Triumph TR6 Roadster finished in Black over a black interior. Built in England by the Triumph Motor Company, the TR-Series of sports cars evolved throughout its production from 1953-1981. The TR6 generation was debuted in 1968 with revised body styling by Karmann and a front anti-roll bar to improve handling. Under the current ownership over the past 15 years, this TR6 has been comprehensively refurbished including a fully rebuilt drivetrain, new paint, a custom exhaust system, and a freshly reupholstered interior. This 1974 Triumph TR6 is now being offered for auction by its longtime owner out of New York.
This TR6 is finished in Black with custom grey racing stripes and red pinstriping. The car has been completely refinished under the current ownership and the seller reports a small scratch on the trunk lid. Exterior details include chrome bumpers, a black soft top, a driver’s side mirror, and dual exhaust tips. It currently rides on 15” VTO wheels with BF Goodrich Silvertown Radial tires.
The cabin is trimmed in black upholstery with a woodgrain dashboard. Amenities include a locking glove compartment, a heater, a factory pushbutton AM/FM radio, and black Coco floor mats. A black roll bar has been added along with Kenwood speakers in the center console and a Moto-Lita steering wheel featuring a Moss Motors horn button and matching shift knob. The suite of Smiths instrumentation includes a 140-MPH speedometer, a tachometer with a 5,800-rpm redline, and gauges for coolant temperature, oil pressure, battery voltage, and fuel level.
The 2.5L inline-six is equipped with dual Zenith-Stromberg carburetors and was factory-rated at 104 HP and 143 lb.-ft of torque. Power is delivered to the rear wheels through a 4-speed manual transmission. The TR6 features a semi-trailing arm rear independent suspension, a front anti-roll bar, rack and pinion steering, and front disc brakes. The engine, transmission, and rear-end are all said to have been rebuilt under the current ownership, and this TR6 has recently received a full-service including new spark plugs, ignition wires, filters, and fluids. The seller has also fitted a custom stainless steel dual exhaust system.
This sale will include some assorted spare parts and accessories along with a clean title. A nicely sorted British roadster, this TR6 makes a fine choice for any driver looking to get behind the wheel of a vintage sports car.
