Triumph TR6 partially restored, 2nd Owner, good condition (1972)
|DE||DE-49716 Meppen||Dark blue|
While the TR5 was still designed by Triumph's court designer Michelotti, the Italian-looking design of the TR6 presented in 1968 was created in Germany: The coachbuilder Karmann created a coherent, modern and yet timeless face that stands out from the crowd. Triumph's new model was particularly well received in the USA: these US models were equipped with two Stromberg carburettors due to stricter emission and consumption regulations, while the models built for Europe were fired by a mechanical Lucas injection system. By the end of production in 1976, almost 100,000 units of the TR6 roadster had been built.
