Description for Triumph TR-6 1973

9/14/2015- Price Reduction Questions 858-216-5892, all Me To See the Car

You are bidding on my MUCH LOVED 1973 Triumph TR6 (VIN # CF11185U) Pimento Red with Tan interior. The car has just completed a complete upper engine rebuild (see Mechanical below). Over $6000 just invested. I purchased the car from the original owner over 38 years ago. The car has never been restored but always kept in good running condition. The car has lived in the San Diego, alifornia area all of its life (Purchased from Graham Automotive, an Diego with the original "Passport To Service") and garaged for 95% for its life. The odometer reads 64020 miles but I ignored a broken speedometer and think the true mileage is around 94,000 miles. Up to June 2014, he car was used for bi-weekly commuting. I have over 25 years of receipts. All work (except oil changes) for the past 12 years have been done by the famous Ken Russell of British Automotive. Clean title in hand. I can send more and larger pictures, r photograph any area of the car you would like to see. Please contact me.


The body has the original paint. The car was bumped in the back while parked before I bought it so that the lower rear valence has some damage. The left front hub has been replaced after I hit a curb. The car was also bumped while parked in the left rear quarter but that was professionally repaired and hard to tell today. The front of the bonnet has a slight bend from a late braking maneuver. There are two holes on the right wing where a thief removed a mirror. There are four (4) holes in the rear truck lid for a luggage rack (which I have). As a southern California car, here is no significant rust damage anywhere. There is some slight surface rust on the underside of the floors and some corrosion in the driver's foot well that would have to be sanded and repainted. A roll bar has been professionally installed.


The seats were recovered in the early 80's and the driver's seat lower diaphragm was replaced in 2007. The carpets underneath the seats need to be replaced but covered by rubber mats in footwells. The dash top is cracked in 2 places on the dash top and 1 each on the switch plinth and the right crash pad. The door cap and pull on both doors has just been replaced. The hinges on the glove box could use some attention. There is a Formula France (I think) steering wheel on the car but I have the original. There is a Blaupunkt Daytona stereo and while the radio works fine, he cassette does not function correctly. The convertible top is old but in good condition and the rear window is clear.


The engine is original and just completed a upper end rebuild including new: pistons with new rings (hand filed), amshaft, il pump, iming chain, alves, ronze valve guides, alve springs, nd rod bearing set (Note: Car will need cylinder head re-torqued in 500 miles). The car has a Crane electronic ignition, new fuel pump, pin on oil filter, nd a carburetor shield. The gearbox is also the original and was overhauled about 28,000 miles ago. There is a drip at the differential but very small. The radiator was recored, long with a new water pump, oses and fan belt about 5,000 miles ago. The tires are Doral 205/65R15 (10,000 miles) the speedometer has been recalibrated but the odometer is 7% high. All lights and gauges are working. The only thing that I know that does not work is the window washer. New battery.
