THE ESSENTIALS

SOLD to California!! This is a local consignment of a 1973 Triumph TR6 Roadster that has been in California and Arizona since new. It comes with about 40 years of detailed maintenance and service receipts, original Mimosa Yellow paint and black vinyl interior and exudes the love and care invested in it.

This is a perfect candidate for preservation classes at concours event or British car shows. Only the passenger door had some repair work in the early 1980’s. All other panels are completely original Mimosa yellow paint and totally rust and accident free. The paint has many little rock chips, but overall it is in excellent condition and the original paint MUST be kept. This is not a car to repaint- it is too nice!

Most likely from the selling dealer, the car had many pin stripe details added. We have removed the pinstripe as it was very dated in color and style, but we retained the hand painted “Triumph” on the front fenders. There is a very slight ghosting of some of the pin stripe, because we were careful not to dig too deep into the gorgeous original paint. It looks great!

Linda Brown from Tempe has owned it for the past decade and has had it fastidiously maintained at The MG Shop in Tempe, AZ. The TR comes with a enormous stack of 40 years worth of receipts, documenting the 120,000 miles of ownership and continuous service and maintenance. The TR is also equipped with the optional luggage rack, which look terrific and are very practical for weekend getaways and picnics. The convertible top is nearly new and works well. The original wood dashboard is in very nice condition, with only minor cracking, mainly near the glove box door.

We’ve had an opportunity to drive it, and it is a blast to drive. The performance is strong, the oil pressure excellent, the temperature gauge was always quite low, even in 90 degree weather on the freeway as well as in traffic. The four speed transmission was excellent as well as the brakes. Mechanically, this car has been kept as well as the cosmetics. The red striped radials look right and help make the car a true time capsule. Look closely at the pictures of the engine compartment, it is gorgeous!

It comes fully accessorized with a cover cover, tonneau cover, top boot, a full library of Triumph shop manuals, owners manual and books and the aforementioned 40 years of receipts.

The TR6 is available for inspection or viewing in our Phoenix, AZ showroom. For more details or a FaceTime video inspection call, please text or call Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or email us at harry@classicpromenade.com.

Interesting Fact: The Triumph TR6 was produced from 1968 to 1976 and is one of the best-selling models of the TR range. During its eight years, over 91,000 TR6s were produced, but only 8,370 were actually sold in the cars home country of Britain.   A 2.5-liter straight-six engine and four-speed manual transmission give the TR6 152 horsepower, along with a 0 to 60 acceleration of 8.2 seconds and a top speed of 120 miles per hour. As of 2020, there are 4000 TR6s licensed for use in the UK.   Another fun feature on the Triumph TR6 is the optional hard-top roof which requires two people to remove. This model was eventually surpassed by the TR7 in 1977, which went on to continue breaking sales records. The overall rarity of this vehicle, combined with its impressive performance, make the TR6 a vehicle many would love to have the chance to purchase!
