Lot 204: Triumph TR6

Techno Classica, Coys (2 April 2011)

Considered by many to be the last of the traditional British sports cars, the Triumph TR6 was the last of a long and fine line of fast and affordable open two seaters. Its origins lie in the TR2 of 1953 which evolved into the first of the similarly Belgrove-styled TR3/TR3A and then the Michelotti-penned TR4 and TR4A. When launched in 1968, the TR6 received a warm welcome and was regarded as the spiritual successor to the muscular Austin Healey 3000.

This delightful example is most attractively finished in red with a contrasting black interior and hood and has been recently subject to some expenditure including fitment of a new dashboard as well as a new soft top, double stainless steel exhaust and a Moto Lita steering wheel. Being described by the Dutch vendor, whose collection it had graced for some 15 years, is in good condition, this ever popular Roadster offers fantastic summer motoring at a reasonable outlay.
