A legendary and albeit lesser-known vehicle manufacturing company is the Triumph Motor Company. This British automotive manufacturer was founded 136 years ago, in 1885. Although the Triumph brand is now owned by BMW and the last vehicle produced by them was the Triumph Acclaim in 1981, there are reports of the brand’s possible future revival. The fact that Triumph cars are rare and not in production anymore makes them highly desirable, and as such we present this subject vehicle, a 1974 Triumph TR6 Convertible. The TR6 was produced from 1968 to 1976 as sports car and was one of the successful cars in the TR range from Triumph. This TR6 Convertible comes from Arkansas with 23,500 miles on the clock.
Finished off in a dazzling white with a Chestnut vinyl interior trim, this 1974 Triumph TR6 Convertible evokes timeless class and elegance. The car rides on a set of OEM Triumph wheels with Hankook Optimo rubber. The front and rear of the TR6 was designed by Karmann of Germany, it has traditional dual headlights with a pair of turn signals on the front and side marker lights on the front fenders with the grille featuring a TR6 badge with a few aftermarket badges. The bumper is made of chrome and holds a small grille guard also in chrome. Squared-off Kamm tail design makes up the rear of the car with a chrome bumper and factory optional Triumph Overdrive logo. Contrasting with the white of the exterior is a Chestnut colored interior and Walnut veneer dashboard. Pride of place is taken up by a vintage Triumph 4-spoke wood and metal steering wheel. The dash features a myriad of instrumentation as befitting a sports car. The audio system in this TR6 is a retro sound stereo with an added touch of modernity in the form of Bluetooth connectivity. Included with the vehicle is a hard top, red Tonneau cover and a red top boot.
This 1974 Triumph TR6 Convertible is powered by a 2.5L straight six engine with carburetors. Whilst UK variants enjoyed Lucas fuel injection and 150bhp, the US-spec versions were a little down on power due to the compliance with emissions standards. However, the light weight of this car should ensure that it is still a spirited drive, whilst stopping power is delivered through disc brakes on the front and drums on the rear. A four-speed all-synchromesh transmission sends the power to the rear wheels.
