Lot 103: Triumph TR6

Carfest North Pride & Joy Auction, Silverstone Auctions (4 August 2013)

The Triumph TR6 was the best-selling Triumph in history when production ended in 1976, but was later surpassed by the TR7. More than 94,000 TR6s were built; ninety per cent of them were to US specification. The TR6 was a refined sports car. It featured pile carpets on floors and boot, plush-looking bucket seats, a lovely wooden dashboard and a full complement of instrumentation. In the US it featured the six-cylinder engine that was carried over from the TR250, while the UK version had the more powerful fuel-injected engine from the TR5 that included the Lucas mechanical fuel injection system. It traces its lineage back to the four-cylinder Triumphs: TR4, TR4A, TR3/TR3A and TR2. This stylish six-cylinder sports car is regarded by some as the last true Triumph. Presented in Signal Red with contrasting black leather with black hood and tonneau cover piped in red, this is an original UK Fuel injection ( Pi ) 150 Bhp CP chassis series. It is in extremely good order with the benefit of an extensive history portfolio, which includes invoices, previous MoT tests and hand books etc. She has come from a TR Register member's home and has quite clearly been a much cherished vehicle. The owner has driven her over 150 miles recently and during that time she performed very well and the instruments indicated a continuous correct cooling and good oil pressure, she brakes sharply and the gear change is crisp. Long Mot test and Road tax free upgraded to use unleaded fuel.
