The Triumph Motor Company is one of those British manufacturers who made quirky little sports cars and roadsters equipped with modestly-powered but lively engines, manual transmissions, and low weights. These characteristics make them a hoot to drive on twisty roads, often at or near full throttle! What we have here is a 1974 Triumph TR-6 from Virginia. The TR-6 ran from 1968 to 1976, and if you are looking for a pert little British roadster, this car fits the bill, and the seller states that service records are available.
The TR-6 was styled by Karmann of Germany, based on an earlier Michelotti design, which this 1974 Triumph TR-6 proudly showcases with its red paintwork. It’s reported to have been re-painted sometime in the early Nineties, and comes with a black convertible top, black rollbar, chrome luggage rack and bullet-style mirrors. It rolls on 15-inch silver steel wheels, and twin chromed tailpipes peek out from the back and sing their song. Did you know that this car is just 155.5 inches (3.95 meters) long? That’s shorter than many subcompact cars! The tan interior was refreshed in 2016, seats two occupants on leather seats and you face a wood-trimmed dash. A sporty three-spoke steering wheel and a comprehensive set of gauges are present, and this car has received a modern upgrade in the shape of a Pioneer radio with CD player.
Triumph cars were known for having relatively diminutive engines in comparison to the larger displacement powerplants that American cars enjoyed, but this 1974 Triumph TR-6 comes with a relatively stout 152ci (2.5L) straight six from the Triumph Six Cylinder family. It’s mated to a four-speed manual transmission and drives the rear wheels. Whilst UK cars came with Lucas mechanical fuel injection and produced 150hp, US market cars came with dual carburetors and produced 104hp. Front disc brakes and rear drum brakes help bring the car to a halt, and this car has had an oil change, new battery, fuel pump and fuel filter in 2020.
