Here we have a 1976 Triumph TR6 with overdrive. A California car with clean title and no rust. The current owners family has had the car for some time but is unsure of how many owners the car has had in total. Below we will try to list all the positives and negatives about the car so you can bid with confidence.
This TR6 starts right up with a pull of the choke and settles into a smooth idle once warm. The engine and transmission where rebuilt some years ago. The 2.5 liter straight-6 engine has good compression and provides plenty of power and shows no signs of overheating. The gearbox is lovely and goes though the gears with ease with no grinding of any kind. The overdrive kicks in perfectly with the flick of the switch. The brakes are nice and firm and pull up straight. The steering is responsive and the suspension is good with no major bonks or bangs. Overall this is a very mechanically sound TR6.
All gauges are functional at the time of this writing. The horn, headlights (hi & low), brake lights, side lights, indicators, reverse lights, license plate lights all work. There is an aftermarket Clarion radio that works as well and a Clarion amplifier and 6-disc CD changer in the trunk.
This TR6 has an older repaint in its original Carmine Red that is showing its age. There are a few spots where the paint is cracking or has completely come off, there are also various nicks and scratches around the body. The chrome is complete and has good shine to it. The soft top is in excellent condition and this TR6 also comes with a boot cover. The tires still have good tread left on them but are on the older side.
The interior on this car is just lovely. The black vinyl seats have zero tears in them, the carpet is complete and tidy, all panels are complete and in excellent condition. The dash is in great shape and this TR6 comes with an aftermarket wood grain steering wheel and aftermarket roll bar. About the only negative on the interior is there is a small tear on the switch plinth.
To sum up this is a very lovely driving TR6 with some minor cosmetic issues. It should serve its next owner well for years to come. If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment to see the car in person please feel free to contact me at (310)833-1525 7am-5pm Monday through Friday.
