BaT Auction: 1969 Triumph TR6

This post was originally published on this site

This 1969 Triumph TR6 is finished in Jasmine Yellow over a black vinyl interior and is powered by a 2.5L inline-six mated to a 4-speed manual gearbox. Work conducted under previous ownership included a repaint and carburetor rebuild, along with the installation of a new fuel tank, fuel pump, water pump, brake master cylinder, and more. Other features include folding high-back bucket seats, upgraded wheels studs, and a Falcon exhaust system. This TR6 is now offered by the selling dealer with a folder of restorations receipts, the factory tools, jack, and a clean Ohio title.

The car was repainted in its original Jasmine Yellow (34) under previous ownership, and the finish is photographed up close in the 200+ image gallery below. Most weatherstripping and seals were reportedly replaced following the paintwork. According to the selling dealer, this early-production example features factory rear quarter panel moldings.

Close-ups of the body panels and interior can be seen in the 2-minute video shown above.

Refurbished factory 15″ steel wheels feature upgraded wheel studs and wear newer trim rings. Per the seller, newer redline tires are mounted at each corner and the brakes benefit from a new master cylinder. The convertible top is said to function as intended and features a black snap-on cover.

The black (11) interior features a pair of folding vinyl high-back bucket seats which reportedly wear the original diamond-patterned seat covers. The carpet was recently replaced according to the seller, and the period AM-radio and speakers are said to function as they should. The amp gauge was replaced with an aftermarket unit. The wiper switch is noted to be occasionally problematic.

The 2.5L inline-six is equipped with twin SU carburetors reportedly rebuilt in April 2018. Shifting is handled by a 4-speed manual gearbox. Recent work included the installation of a new battery, as well as fuel and water pumps. The engine bears a stamp reading KF1910HE as shown in the gallery.
