1972 Triumph TR6 150bhp
Offered for sale at Roman Garages is this fine 1972 Triumph TR6 with the 150bhp 2500cc engine. This is mated to 4 speed manual gearbox with overdrive. With the last owner for 7 years this car benefits from a fully rebuilt engine with invoices in 2018, including rebore, crank reground, new pistons, shells and the cylinder head converted to unleaded as well as a new clutch.
The TR6 was built between 1968 and 1976. In the TR range of vehicles it was a best seller with 91850 units, the majority of which were exported. In fact only 8,370 were actually sold into the home market. Only the TR7 which followed surpassed it in terms of number sold.
ENGINE AND GEARBOX
The engine on this TR6 is the more powerful 150bhp version. Later TRs put out just 125bhp. The 2.5 litre Triumph straight six has a lovely exhaust note, particularly under load. The fuel injection system has been upgraded with a new pump and breathes through three K & N type filters. We also fitted a new cooling fan to keep the engine cool.
When we first received the car it was a little low on oil pressure, so we have had the engine totally rebuilt with the invoice to prove. At the same time the car’s cylinder head was convereted to run on unleaded fuel. At present it is being carefully run in, so the mileage will increase. The gearbox is a manual overdrive and the car drives smoothly through the gears including the overdrive on 3rd and 4th. The clutch was replaced at the same time with a new assembly.
The black seats and carpets are all in good condition for the year and the TR has a walnut dashboard in keeping with the other models in the Triumph range. The cabin is compact and the driver sits low in this sports car.
The sunflower yellow paintwork is very neat and tidy all roundfor the year. The soft top is in good condition, and the car is set off with a really nice set of alloy wheels in the Minilite style. Panel fit is good and all badging is present and correct.
This Triumph TR6 has been well cared for through its life, and it comes with a file of invoices for work done over the years. It is one of the nicest TR6s we have seen.
This is a car that is an everyday usable classic to be enjopyed and driven.. It has more than adequate performance to cope wityh todays traffic and will not be disgraced in classic car shows and club meetings. It is a thoroughly well sorted example of this wonderful epitome of British sports car. We highly recommend it!
