This 1972 Triumph TR6 looks especially attractive with its fully coordinated color combo. And everything from the way it drives to some well-placed upgrades lets you know this is a sharp-looking classic that wants to be enjoyed.
White is an easy color to love, especially when you have the kind of glossy presentation here. But what really makes this one look timeless is the way there is a well-coordinated black for a sharp-looking contrast on the grille, windshield surround, rear panel, .....
and well-fitting convertible top. Plus, there's a full-length pinstripe done in black that makes for a nice finishing touch that also helps highlight the well-fitting panels. And speaking of the panels, Triumph created a nicely formed car with impressive details like the sporty kick-up in the doors and a hood that formed around the headlights. It showed this came from a time when they cared about style. And there's even the right brightwork everywhere from the clean bumpers to the classic luggage rack. It's all about making sure this one really looks European, vintage, and distinct - all in one glance.
The black interior means you get to keep the well-done color combo with the roof on or off. It looks quite clean and complete inside with a driver-quality and driver-ready feel. There are even nice details, like the working interior lights and a well-fitting convertible boot. The TR6 was a bit more all-weather friendly than earlier British sports cars, and you see that with the roll-up windows and sung-fitting top. The big reason to want a TR6 is that it knows how to engage your enthusiast side. The well-formed bucket seats, grippy steering wheel, and full Smiths gauges are a true sports car experience. And because this one wants you to really drive it, the stereo has been upgraded to a retro-style unit that now has AM/FM, Bluetooth, and a USB input to plug in your phone.
The engine bay has a correct and tidy style that does a good job showing off the 2.5-liter inline-six. Dual Stromberg carburetors, clean hi-temp plug wires, and newer exhaust components are all part of a solid-running package. And the strong motor pairs with the four-speed manual transmission to feel quite peppy out on the road. Plus, it's a terrific drier with tight-feeling manual steering, a fully independent sports suspension, and power brakes with front discs.
Complete with the owner's manual, this Triumph combines tasteful style with an irresistible driver-ready nature. So if you're looking for a well-priced head-turning drop-top, call today!
