We are delighted to offer this superbly presented home market Triumph TR6 150BHP onto the market. This is the ultimate TR6 model being a CP chassis number car with overdrive and in today's strong TR6 market this car represents excellent value. JUL 834K is finished in Pimento Red with Black leather trim, original correct wheels and has been restored during the 1990's to an excellent standard. The TR comes with a new soft top hood, hood cover, tonneau cover and history file to include handbook, MOT's, invoices and a full photographic record of a comprehensive restoration. The Triumph is also equipped with a tow bar as the previous owner often towed a small trailer carrying classic bikes to shows. If necessary we are happy to remove the tow bar.
JUL 834K is an impressive car and this is partly due to the high standard of restoration undertaken. We can see from the condition and photographs that this car was taken back to the bare chassis. The body was totally stripped down, removed from the chassis and rebuilt to a high standard. The chassis was stripped, cleaned, prepared and painted and prior to re-fitting the restored bodyshell, it was prepared for a full re-paint in Pimento Red including the underside, inner arches, boot and engine bay. The body was totally stripped back off the chassis resulting in a top class finish. During build up the TR was treated to new chrome, new lights, hood, upholstery and the engine bay was finsihed to a standard ready for shows and events. The TR6 was treated to many new mechanical components, the engine and gearbox were stripped, checked and overhauled as necessary, the suspension and brakes all re-fitted to the car as new and any component requring work was either replaced or repaired.
Twenty years on from the rebuild it is clear the car has had low usage. From previous MOT's we know the TR6 has only covered 1500 miles since 2011 and it has been a fair weather car. This is clear from the stunning, clean underside and engine bay. The bodywork is still impressive, as is the gleaming Pimento Red paint finish that only has the most very minor of blemishes commensurate with the age since restoration. The TR6 presents superbly all these years on and this is due to the quality of workmanship and the way this car has been kept since. The chrome is still of an excellent standard, so are the wheels and the interior is very sharp with excellent leather seats, carpets, door cards and dashboard. The engine bay is still stunning and good enough to show. The boot is excellent and on removing the carpet and boot board, the spare wheel well is clean, sharp and like the top of the car, just as are the main floors under the carpets. JUL 834K is a brilliant driver, its quick, lots of fun and excellent on the road. The fuel injection system feels perfect, the car starts up promptly, runs incredibly well both cold and warm and has outstanding performance. Oil pressure is high, the four speed gearbox has excellent syncro's, the overdrive comes in and out smoothly and the TR6 handles and brakes perfectly. This is a top class driving car that presents very well and should prove a superb purchase that can be driven and enjoyed with confidence.
