Description for Triumph GT6 1973

You are viewing a 1973 Triumph GT6 Mk3 project that I am reluctantly letting go of. Please read the entire listing and view all the pictures to get an accurate description of this rare car and it's potential.
I purchased this car a few years ago with the intention of completing a full restoration. It had not been on the road since around 1992 based on the California license plates. It was mostly intact and original. I have restored several Triumphs and this was the one model I had fond memories of but never owned.Unfortunately I just don't have the time to complete it.
1973 was the last year for this underrated car.This particular car came from the factory with the much desired, and hard to find Overdrive transmission option and is covered in code 126 French Blue with code 11 black cloth interior. It was upgraded early on with now very rare BWA wheels. It was originally sold in California. Produced in September of 1972, it's a very early '73. This was the 180th '73 produced out of a worldwide total of 2745.
I have brought this car back to life. The engine now runs great. The overdrive goes in and out when activated. Now it's time for someone else to make it beautiful again and get it back on the road.
