Triumph TR6: Buying guide and review (1968-1976)

Triumph TR6: Buying guide and review (1968-1976) Classic and Performance Car
Triumph TR6 Triumph TR6
The reason all Triumph TR6 customers wore polo necks was to conceal their cravats. But there’s no hiding the truth, and the sharp, chisel-chinned exterior of the TR6 masks a platform that was descended directly from that of 1953’s TR2. 
 
For all that, though, it had plenty for sporting drivers to love, particularly Americans – and it sold in far higher numbers than its predecessors. Today, it’s more affordable than any of the earlier TR Tweedsters, and it provides the hairshirt heritage in a package that’s easier to own. 
 
In essence, the TR6, with its six appeal and crisp à-la-mode styling, was the final flourish of the stout true-Brit TR tradition. At the Triumph TR6’s 1969 launch, The Autocar presciently declared it ‘the last of the real sports cars’. And it really was on its own, for there was literally nothing to compare with it in its price-performance class. Indeed, the most valid comparisons are with its Triumph ancestors, for it was the last of an evolutionary line of seat-of-the-pants TRs. 
 
The TR6 evolved by route of the Michelotti-styled TR4, and the TR4A’s independent rear suspension, then taking over the short-lived TR5/TR250’s smooth fuel-injected 2.5-litre six. It all sat in a hull reworked on a tight budget by Karmann, with an effective nose and tail face-lift; the centre section was unchanged. 
 
The TR6 isn’t the finest-handling sports car of its era, but many claim that it’s faster than an E-type on the wiggly bits. There’s also an elephant in the room in the form of the mechanical fuel-injection, which is prone to fuel vapourisation on a warm day, but that’s all part of the experience (and easily fixable these days, anyway). Just ensure you have a wicker picnic hamper so you can make out you intended to pull over while you wait for the pump to cool. A useful expedient is to make sure you keep the tank at least half full, which keeps the fuel reasonably cool. 
 
Which one to buy?
 
A total of 94,619 TR6s were built with 8370 finding homes in the UK. Currently there are 3398 licensed and 1218 SORN TR6s on UK roads. 
 
In its earliest Lucas fuel-injected form through to 1973, the TR6 delivered 150bhp and 0-60mph in 8.9 seconds, topping out at 118mph. Emissions legislation meant the US had to make do with twin Zenith-Stromberg carbs, 104bhp and 107mph, but it didn’t dampen enthusiasm. In 1973, fuel-injected cars were detuned to 125bhp. Stories about the system’s unreliability may have been true back in the day, but everything is fixable. The fuel pump will likely already have been swapped for a Bosch unit, eliminating most problems. 
 
The difference between the quoted initial 150bhp and the 1973-on 125bhp may seem alarmingly significant, but changes to the way power outputs were measured mean there’s little real difference. Alternatively, the injection might have been ditched in favour of sidedraught Webers or similar, which is fine, while the US-market cars came with twin Stromberg carburettors as standard, with less power.
 
Despite the antique separate chassis, albeit with rack-and-pinion steering and front discs, the TR6 was a hit, with 94,619 built through to 1976. Around 77,000 went to the US. Parts availability is almost at MGB levels (very good) and construction is as uncomplicated as it gets, with separate chassis and relatively simple body panels. Mechanicals are tough, easily fixed and uprated (much enjoyment to be had there). Overdrive makes a huge difference but wasn’t standard fitment until 1974, and a hardtop is useful as long as you can store it.

Common problems
 
Unless you find a low mileage timewarp car, a vehicle of this age will have been through its share of repairs and resprays, being an older British sports it becomes even more crucial to ensure that the bodywork is in good condition. There are a number of points to look at when assessing a TR6 so let’s dive in. 
 
• The most important thing to look for is rust. Bubbling paintwork usually means that there is a lot more danger lurking below the surface. Particularly vulnerable spots are the front quarter panels, behind the rear wheels, under the carpets in the footwells and in the engine compartment where various fluids may have removed paint allowing rust to set in. A professional respray is usually required at some point and it is well worth looking for a car that has had this done in the not too distant past. 
 
• The TR6 frame can rust around the trailing arms for the rear suspension and where the differential is attached to the frame. Issues here may indicate a very expensive repair and/or a frame replacement. 
 
• Overheating was a common concern and most cars would have had some type of aftermarket electric radiator fans fitted to combat this. Make sure your cars cooling system is in top condition before signing on the dotted line. 
 
• The electrical system is thankfully not too complex and has no major issues other than those caused by frayed wiring or damaged looms. 
 
• Engines are robust and long lasting, high mileage at this age is not a major concern, rather look for evidence of regular servicing. Thrust washers are one of the few weak points and getting a TR mechanic to give the engine a once over can save you a lot of headaches in the future. 
 
• Gearboxes are strong and a worn unit is quickly diagnosed by sloppy shifts or worn synchros. Overdrive on early cars could cause problems. 
 
• On a positive note, parts are widely available and joining one of the Triumph clubs is a good way to get to know the best suppliers and how to tackle the most common issues.

Summary and prices
 
There it is, then: the TR6, a cashmere hairshirt par excellence. In terms of performance per pound there was really nothing to match it in its time, and today it’s an even better price-performance package. With a touch of chest-wig brawn, it’s not only more potent but also more attainable than any earlier TR, more refined and comfortable, too. 
 
It’s by far the easiest real TR to own, with virtually everything available, even Heritage bodyshells. It taps into the past while crossing a bridge to modernity. Around £13,000 gets you a good condition example with a reasonable service history, with £25,000 will get top condition car. Anything sub-£10,000 is likely to be marginal or an honest project, so be aware when looking at cheaper cars. Find a TR6 that has been well maintained, and you can enjoy some of the finest open topped motoring that reasonable money can buy.

    We are delighted to offer this outstanding Triumph TR6 onto the market. VRW 897J is a genuine UK home market CP chassis number 150BHP car with overdrive and is finished in its original Triumph Signal Red with Tan leather upholstery. The car has been with its last owner for 16 years and it comes with a comprehensive history detailing major restoration work. There are three significant years for the TR6, first of all 1985 when it was subject of a body off rebuild by West London classic car specialist British Sportscar Centre. The car spent the 1980's. and 1990's with one owner, a Doctor who was based in Fulham and later Putney before moving north to Cheshire in the 1990's. The next significant point in the cars history was a restoration completed by Cheshire based TR specialists TR Bitz in 1999 and after 18 years and just 5000 miles, in 2017 the car was treated to a full outer re-paint in order to still present as a recently rebuilt car.

    £32,950 £32,950

    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.

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.
