1975 Triumph TR6- 11,350 miles, One Owner!!
This is a fabulous opportunity to own a unique motorcar. Is there a TR6 in existence having accumulated fewer than 11,350 miles since new? If so, was the car cherished by one owner since new and fastidiously maintained? We offer on consignment here what may be the finest original TR6 in existence.
This Triumph was bought new at Bob Owens Sales, Inc in Westland Michigan on October 30, 1975 for $6,400. The owner first test drove the recently released TR7 wedge and upon completing the test drive asked the sales person to let him drive a TR6 so he can drive “a real sports car”. And so he did. After the test drive he had a selection of a few remaining TR6’s on the lot and chose this Pimento Red with Black interior. The car came well equipped with the removable hardtop, tonneau cover and boot, and the Michelin radial tires that are on the car to this day. (see the original sales receipt for details)

He then consciously preserved the car in as-new condition. (Please note that the car is located in California and has been in the state for about 15 years. It has Michigan license plates only for registration purposes)
The owner of this special car is an artisan craftsman. Everything he owns is perfect or as near perfect as he can have possible. One look around his garage makes it all seem plausible. Two 1970’s Hondas underneath layers of soft blankets and perfect. The spot where the TR6 is parked has plastic tarp underneath to help prevent dust from contacting the undercarriage of the car. Of course there are no oil leaks from the car. That would not be acceptable to a perfectionist of his character.
