1974 Triumph TR6 Convertible
Radwan Classic Cars is pleased to offer this stunning 1974 Triumph TR6 Convertible. The Triumph TR6 (1968–76) is a sports car built by the British Triumph Motor Company between 1968 and 1976. It was the best-seller of the TR range when production ended. Of the 91850 TR6s produced, 83,480 were exported; only 8,370 were sold in the UK.
The bodywork was generally similar to the TR4/TR5, but the front and back ends were squared off, reportedly as a result of a consultancy contract involving Karmann.
All TR6s were powered by Triumph’s 2.5-litre straight-6, with the same Lucas mechanical fuel-injection as the TR5 for the United Kingdom and global markets, and carburetted for the United States, as had been the US-only TR250.
The TR6 featured a four-speed manual transmission. An optional electrically switched overdrive operated on second, third, and fourth gears on early models and third and fourth on later ones. Construction was traditional frame. Other features included semi-trailing arm independent rear suspension, rack and pinion steering, 15-inch wheels and tires, pile carpet on floors and trunk/boot, bucket seats, and full instrumentation. Brakes were discs at the front and drums at the rear. A factory steel hardtop was optional, requiring two people to deploy. The dashboard was walnut veneer. Other factory options included a rear anti-roll bar and a limited-slip differential.
The UK version TR6PI could accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 8.2 seconds and had a top speed of 120 mph according to Autocar magazine. The Triumph offered here is an amazing example of the marque. The current owner of the car took delivery in November of 2014 with approximately 74,000 miles. At that time Britalia Import Auto Services completed a full mechanical overhaul of the car including: Rebuilding the engine from top to bottom, new brake master cylinder and lines, new clutch assembly, master and slave cylinder, new alternator, hi-torque starter, polished aluminum valve cover, new belts and hoses, new ignition system, new electric fuel pump, sport exhaust header, electronic ignition (pertronix), restored fuel tank, re-built carburettors, new rack and pinion mounts, new differential mounts, and additional items. Then it was fitted with a new canvas convertible top with chrome mounting hardware and a complete new interior. All felts, trim and moldings were replaced as well. It is one of the nicest Triumph’s we have seen. The car comes complete with a file of restoration pictures and receipts.
