Our TR6 was restored some 12 years ago for a long-standing customer. The car was subjected to a full, ‘body-off’ restoration and was restored on a ‘no expense spared’ basis. The car benefits from a fully galvanized chassis, ensuring longevity and strength, and our attention to detail on panel fit and finish ensure that the door gaps remain as true as the day the car left us. The previous owner undertook fastidious maintenance during the time the car was in his custody, keeping the car true to its original design and purpose but making subtle enhancements to the specification. A full history file is present with the car, detailing every penny that has been spent maintaining the car, totaling many thousands of pounds.
The TR6 remains in superb condition as a testament to the high level of restoration and maintenance, and since purchasing the vehicle we have used it as our flagship, to demonstrate what, in our opinion, the ultimate Triumph TR6 is. The definitive British sports car of the era, with the enhancements aimed at improving the performance, handling and reliability.
Presently, the car is undergoing a refit, including new hood, roll bar with additional centre mounted brake lamp, new dashboard, powdercoated standard steel wheels with new centres, stainless steel wheel nuts and 5 x Continental Sport tyres. Currently undergoing full detailing and 100 point service.
