The Model: Following the trend for more powerful sports cars, Triumph-Standard had created a rather respectable entry with the TR250, which was a stepping stone from the world of four-bangers to an in-line six. While the TR250 was in production for just a few months, a new modern package was developed and thus was born the TR6. With design elements from earlier models carefully applied to a new shell developed by Karmann of West Germany, the TR6 was an immediate hit. Due to emissions issues, cars sold in the USA were equipped with carburetors employing a triple set of double-pumper Webers which delivered plenty of power. Handling was vastly improved over earlier models due in part to the superb design of the semi-trailing independent rear suspension with cast aluminum arms. Today enthusiasts love the TR6 and it has become a perfect blend of sports car performance with just a bit more comfort for the driver and occupants.


The Car: Finished in white with black bucket seats, this is simply a fun car to own and drive. Described by our consignor as “just about perfect”, it appears to have been treated to a cosmetic restoration several years ago. While quite presentable, upon close inspection there are a couple of minor issues, easily overlooked when you climb behind the wheel, fire up the engine and start down the road. This is a true driver quality car but shows that it has been cared for. Under the hood all is in order with the trio of Webers singing a pretty song whenever they’re allowed. A full set of gauges are mounted in the genuine wood-faced dashboard, the seats show only minimal wear while the black soft top looks to be nearly new with the clear plastic windows being clean and clear. Riding on original Rally Wheels and a set of red-line tires, this isn’t a car that should be put away and never used, but should be taken out and driven on a regular occasion, like the upcoming summer season!
