Introduced in late 1968, the TR6 was effectively a cleverly updated TR5. Triumph initially turned to Michelotti for the body revisions - the Italian maestro who styled the TR4/TR5 - however he couldn't meet their schedule and the changes were ultimately achieved by Karmann. A total of 94,619 TR6s were produced, a mere 8,370 of which were sold on the home market. This very pretty-looking TR6 was supplied new in 1971 complete with conversion by SAH Accessories - the tuning shop operated by racing driver Sid A Hurrell was synonymous with modified Triumphs of the period. Just prior to the vendor's purchase from a Triumph dealer in 2002, it was treated to an extensive restoration, at which point it gained the following: 40DCOE Weber carburettors, stainless steel exhaust system, overdrive in third and top gears, adjustable gas dampers, uprated front anti-roll bar, five new wire wheels, skid plate, hood and tonneau covers, detachable wind deflector and storage bag. Finished in the pleasing combination of Green bodywork and Tan-coloured interior, 'DUB 548K is currently described by the vendor as having 'excellent' bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, six-cylinder engine and manual gearbox. An unrestored Works hardtop is available by separate negotiation.
