This is a 1 owner 1971 Triumph TR6 150hp with overdrive and only 65000 miles from new, matching numbers. The car was originally delivered to the owner new in Singapore to UK spec. The TR spent it's early life in Singapore being only used sparingly at weekends and special occasions. In December 1987 the car was repatriated when the owner moved back to the UK. Once again the car was used occasionally at the weekends and always in the dry. The car was stored in a heated garage. As the owner got older the car was used less and less until his demise in 2016. We purchased the car from his widow and although in outstanding structural condition it was clear that the car needed 'refreshing' and re-commissioning.
We stripped the car down, removing the engine and gearbox and stripping the interior basically to a bare shell. On inspection it was clear that the TR6 had all it's original panels and had never been welded and there was no rust present. We re-finished the paintwork and serviced the engine, we replaced the clutch and flywheel which were balanced together with the balanced prop-shaft, which was fitted with new UJ's, we also replaced the brakes completely, fitted a new up-rated radiator and replaced various items under the bonnet, a new battery was fitted . We also serviced the engine and renewed the fuel lines. The TR also has its original factory hard top.
The interior of he car was re-fitted using the original seats and belts with renewal of the carpets only being necessary due to sun damage. The hood is original and in good condition as is the tonneau cover and hood envelope. We also fitted a new set of chrome wire wheels and tyres. We have a photographic record of this work which will be passed on to the new owner.
The end result is a TR6 that is both stunning to look at and in condition. The car drives extremely well with the overdrive working smoothly. This we believe is the only 1 owner Triumph TR6 to come to market in recent times, accordingly the car is not cheap, particularly with the level of work that we have undertaken and the cars excellent provenance. The Triumph will be sold with a new MOT.
The car represents a blue chip investment for the discerning collector and must be the best TR6 available in the market today.
