This is a 1969 Triumph TR6 RHD, finished in Bentley Orange Flame with a black interior. This lovely example in a striking colour underwent a full nut and bolt restoration last year and has covered 50 miles since then.

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".

This very striking Triumph TR6 is an original USA export car, returned back to the UK in 1992 and converted to right-hand drive. It has recently had an extremely extensive restoration, whereupon it was completely stripped and many new panels fitted. With the engine also out of the car, it too was subject to an overhaul along with ancillary components around it. Certainly, a labour of love for the previous owner, it is now complete and ultimately clothed in Bentley Orange Flame paintwork.

Due to the previous owners situation and workload, he has been unable to use the car as envisaged since completion. It's freshly restored and is ready to hit the road! Accompanying the TR6 is a USB stick containing many pictures of the restoration and the extent of work carried out. There are also invoices for some of the parts purchased for the restoration. The specification includes Willwood front disc brakes, Minator 8 spoke Minilite-style wheels (including the spare wheel), Talbot mirrors and more modern supportive high-back seats. Offered with an accompanying V5C.

This British icon in fantastic condition and a wonderful colour offers the opportunity to own a fully restored TR6 at a great price.
