Triumph's TR6 can be considered the last in a long line of 'hairy-chested' British sports cars and in 150bhp tune it had the grunt to match. A 'big' Healey for the dawn of the 1970s, it would become Triumph's best-selling model to date. With most going for export, out of a production run of 94,619 only 8,370 were supplied to the UK market.
Acquired by the vendor in August 2003, this genuine 150 bhp model was subject to a restoration completed in 2005 which included a repaint in Damson Red by BM Kempton of Cambridge. More recently the car has been treated to an engine refurbishment, renewed suspension and steering bushes and the brakes overhauled. Described by the vendor as having "very good" engine with "good" paintwork, black interior and overdrive gearbox, the odometer now registers some 78,790 miles. BVK 948J is offered with Swansea V5, current MoT to 27th July 2018, original workshop manual, new hood bag and tonneau.
