Triumph TR6 15 inch 2.5L 4-speed beautiful specimen (1969)
The Triumph TR6, which was considered original English abroad, was the most successful of all TR models. Paradoxically, of the almost 100,000 roadsters built, not even ten percent found buyers in England, but the Briton was particularly popular in the USA. Based on the chassis of the TR4, Karmann designed an attractively smooth body in Osnabrück. The in-line six-cylinder was equipped with a mechanically working Lukas injection (USA models were equipped with a double carburetor), to the improved handling contributed an independent suspension with trailing arms at the rear. For the four-speed transmission, there was an optional overdrive. Like all TR, the TR6 embodies a robust piece of technology in which everyday practicality ranks above sophistication.
A Triumph TR6 from the year of construction 1968 is now also offered in this auction for auction. How many owners this British roadster has exactly, the current owner is no longer sure, but it is certain that the last owner in Denmark kept the car for a long time.
