Survivor: ’76 Triumph TR6
Look out of the window in almost any home in New England and you will understand why this Triumph is referred to as a survivor. The weather sucks. This is a beautiful Delft Blue Triumph with original everything. It has a factory hardtop and it hasn’t rusted into an unrecognizable hulk. It helps that it was in storage for most of its life and only exercised in nice weather during the warm months. In over 40 years, it has managed to travel only 26,000 miles. We have a thing for factory hard tops on British sports cars. They are almost universally nicely designed and do not destroy the look of the car. That is absolutely the case with the hard top of the TR6. The seller tells us the top may have been purchased separately as it is a shade off from the car body. When a car is as original as this, there is little need for a running commentary about condition, service records, originality and on and on. Those of us who feel unlucky to live in the Northeast because most of us have a foot of fresh snow on the ground will rejoice with the news that this TR6 is in New Hampshire. That means no cross-country shipping costs! The big question for the new owner is “what do you do with it?” Simple answer – drive the heck out of it and offer it as a benchmark car at the next British car meet. It will be expensive for a ’76 TR6 for sure but it will probably be worth it. Click here for the link.
