Triumph TR6 for sale
The short-lived Triumph TR6 is widely considered the last of the traditional British sports cars. Produced from 1969 to 1976, the two-seat convertible is now considered a classic. The boxy front grill is contrasted nicely with the sharp curves that define the Triumph TR6 body. Collectors of this British classic know early release models from later years by reading the starting letters of the commission numbers, CC and CP representing the oldest designs. However, during the vehicle's short run on the market, it managed to undergo annual upgrades and unofficial variants.
Design of the Triumph TR6
Should you find a Triumph TR6 for sale that isn’t struggling with corrosion, you will be treated to a beautifully designed classic. While this sports car was not ground-breaking for the Triumph TR series, it did offer some unique qualities. The most noticeable difference between the Triumph TR6 and earlier models was the bold nose and tail. The masculine design met with early criticism when released. Fans were expecting a slimmer, more traditional style. Yet the wider body allowed for larger 5.5-inch wheels, which bolstered the sports car's handling and manoeuvrability.
Features of the Triumph TR6
All Triumph TR6 included a 2.5-litre front-mounted straight-six engine as standard.

Thankfully, plenty of working parts are still available to make the Triumph TR6 a choice selection for collectors and rebuilders.
