For many, the Triumph TR6 is the pinnacle of the traditional British roadster. It has a powerful inline six motor and fully independent suspension, so it's the perfect mix of vintage, nimble, and fun. And this 1976 model represent its final and shortened production year.
<br><br> That bold/bright red/orange stays close to the factory-correct Pimento Red. It's a fun color that has the right attitude on this car. That's because it's a good application with a nice shine. So that really does a great job of letting the sunlight roll off the well-respected sheetmetal. But this one also has the right look of a car made for driving, so you'll be eager to take it out every sunny day. For those who plan to use this is all-weather, there's also provisions for a soft top and a seldom-seen color-matched hardtop that comes with the sale (soft top will need frame and hardtop will need to be restored.) The TR6 remains one of the best classic styles around. You see it in the way the hood and the fender join to integrate the headlight housing; the stylish profile kick-up within the doors; and the racing-inspired flat rear end with a hint of overhang. You can see all these details so well because this is a well-respected car, and the low odometer is even believed to reflect total actual mileage.
<br><br> Black interiors always are attractive against red exteriors, and this one really looks exceptional. The upholstery, carpeting, and dash pad all have a nice and dark appearance. So the bright real wood on the dash really draws added attention and charm. But more than just look nice, this is a true driver's machine. You feel it the moment you slip into the bucket seat. Your left hand loves the sports steering wheel, and your right arm instantly finds the stick shift in the perfect position. Plus, it wouldn't be a true British classic without a full set of Smiths gauges.
<br><br> The TR6 is particularly coveted for its motor. It has 2.5-liter inline-six backed by dual Stromberg carburetors, so it's one of the most powerful lightweight British roadsters of the era. You can tell this has been treated correctly by the tidy presentation in the engine bay. And as you dig deeper, you'll see details like an aluminum radiator to help keep it running cool. The motor fires up nicely and knows how to pull this lightweight machine with real authority. This powerful acceleration is in your full control thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. Take the long way home, and you'll instantly fall in love with the way the fully independent sport suspension and front disc brakes handle in this roadster. You even have new tires for the proper grip.
<br><br> This is the sharp-looking final-year classic that has a ton of style and knows how to fit in your budget. That makes for a deal that you really don't want to let slip away, call today!
