Description for Triumph TR-6 1972

For many, the Triumph TR6 is the pinnacle of the traditional British roadster. It has a powerful inline six motor that makes a perfect sound as you tick through the gears, while enjoying the curvy backroads. It only gets better when you can get your hands on a highly original 1972 model for a terrific price.While all classic British roadsters are attractive, this one has something a little extra going for it. The Pimento Red paint has a bit of an older luster that tells you there is some history to this car, and we even suspect it could be original. In fact, this Triumph has had the same owner since 1975, which lets you know it's been under long term care. And you can even see that in the details like the Allegheny Airlines parking sticker on the front bumper (they changed their name to US Air in 1979.) Besides just careful history, you're going to appreciate the coordination in the appearance. The black pinstripe that runs the full length of the car does a nice job of uniting the grille, A-pillar, and flat Kamm back into one cohesive design. And it also ensures this convertible looks great with the top up or down.The interior is another hallmark of the great British roadster. With a wood patterned dashboard full of original Smiths gauges, it definitely has a hand-crafted European feel. Everything has a deep, dark appearance, including the bucket seats, carpeting, and door panels. Even the matching vinyl convertible boot cover has a refreshing crispness that tells you this one has been well looked after. And for those times when you get caught out in wet weather, the black vinyl folding roof fits nice and snug.The TR6 is a favorite on American roads because it Is one of the most powerful cars to come out of the sprightly British sports car era. The 2.5-liter inline-six back by dual Stromberg carburetors knows how to move the lightweight TR6 with quick acceleration and sustainable cruising speeds. Best of all, you are in complete control of this eager motor thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. Take the long way home, and you'll instantly fall in love with the way the fully independent sport suspension handles in this sprightly droptop. And even when stopping, control is well in hand with front disc brakes and the grip of modern BF Goodrich tires.This Triumph has so much originality that we even believe the mileage could be accurate. It has been cared for by the same owner for over four decades, which is the kind of history we all love. And the fact that it's so affordable should be your reason to hurry before this road-carving classic is gone. Call today!!!
