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 1971, this TR6 is understood to have been exported when new to a left-hand-drive market. Fitted with the aforementioned 2.5-litre straight-six engine fed by twin-carburettors and mated to the four-speed manual transmission, the Triumph was repatriated in approximately 1990. Provided with a comprehensive restoration shortly after its return to the United Kingdom, this included a full respray in Green, as presented today. Residing in current ownership since 2009, the Triumph has been fitted with wire wheels shod with Pirelli P6000 tyres all-round as well as an attractive, aftermarket wood-rimmed steering wheel. With a recorded mileage of 94,832 miles (at time of consignment), ‘SVN 773K’ is offered with a current V5C document.
