Introduced in 1968 as a replacement for the outgoing TR250/TR5 models, the Triumph TR6 proved a strong seller on both sides of the Atlantic. Crisply styled, its smooth flowing lines and Kamm tail hid a cruciform-braced chassis equipped with all-round independent suspension, disc/drum brakes and rack-and-pinion steering. Powered by a refined 2498cc OHV straight-six engine allied to four-speed plus overdrive manual transmission, it was deceptively fast with contemporary road testers recording 0-60mph in 8.2 seconds and a 121mph top speed. Writing in 1969, Autocar magazine went as far as to comment that "Even if the Austin-Healey 3000 had not been dropped, the TR6 would have taken over as the he-man's sports car in its own right".
Manufactured in 1970 as a fuel-injection fed example, little is known about the TR6s early history until it was unearthed in 2010 by the restorer in a field in north Co. Dublin, where it was said to have resided for the previous 25-years. Subject to a three-year restoration by the body-shop owning restorer, the TR6 was provided with full chassis refurbishment; bare metal body renovation; an engine overhaul; gearbox inspection and new bearings and gaskets and a full repaint in a metallic Silver/Grey Mercedes-Benz colour. TRGB supplied a new rear axle, half-shafts, wiring loom, carpets and many other items through the restoration, with the project completed in 2013. Attending some TR-club events in Ireland before being imported into the United Kingdom in c.2018, the Triumph has not been UK registered or been allocated a NOVA number and there is no documents with the car.
