1972 Triumph GT6 Mk3, CA “Blue Plate” Restored!
This is a nicely restored Southern California rust-free GT6. This GT6 was sitting in a garage for 20 years and had only accumulated 84,300 miles since new. My brother pulled it out and embarked on an extensive restoration of the cosmetics and mechanicals. The results are a very nice driver that can be exhibited at local car shows. But this is no trailer queen or concours winner.
Although not shown in the photos, the GT6 comes with its original California Blue License Plate. It also comes with a pile of receipts that document the rebuilt engine, carburetor, water pump, starter, alternator, tires, paint, interior, suspension, brakes, etc. This car is well done and is ready to be enjoyed regularly.
The new interior is very well done in black. The original steering wheel is also available with the purchase of the car. The wood dash is excellent and the instruments look great. It is obvious that this GT6 was well stored all its life.
The owners manual is also included. The only item that doesn’t work well are the turn signals. This is a very nice driving GT6 with nice power and a tight ride.
The paint is new in a nice glossy black. It is a nice repaint that will provide years of service.
Engine power and torque for the MK3 was similar to the MK2, but better aerodynamics led to a new top speed of 112 mph (180 km/h) and a 0–60 mph time of 10.1 seconds;this was now comfortably ahead of the MGB GT, which topped out at about 105 mph (169 km/h) and reached 60 mph in approximately 13 seconds. Fuel economy was also improved to 28 mpg. These two liter six cylinder engines are well proven and robust.
The Triumph GT6 is rare. This example is a California rust free example that has low miles and a nice driver quality restoration. For more details please contact us by calling Harry Clark at 602.245.7200 or email us at email@example.com.
