1976 Triumph TR6 PrivateCars - East Saint Louis - 4 views
This 1976 Triumph TR6 was purchased by the seller in 2016 and subsequently underwent cosmetic and mechanical refurbishment. It is finished in white over a black interior and is powered by an overbored 2.5-liter inline-six mated to a four-speed manual transmission with a J-type overdrive. In addition to refinishing the exterior, rebuilding the convertible top, and reupholstering the interior, the seller refreshed the brake, suspension, and fuel systems, and more as detailed below. Modifications include a Monza exhaust, a competition camshaft, a Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo, and a Nardi steering wheel. This TR6 is now offered for sale with an owner’s manual, refurbishment documentation, a service manual, and a clean Missouri title in the seller’s name.
The body was stripped and refinished in white following replacement of the floor pans, rocker panels, and front and rear valances. Additional work included replacement of the windshield, turn signal lenses, badges, stickers, and weatherstripping. Exterior features include quad exhaust outlets, chrome bumpers, a chrome luggage rack, and a replacement black vinyl top.
Factory 15″ wheels were refinished and feature TR6 center caps and chrome trim rings and wear 185/65 BFGoodrich Silvertown tires. The brake system and suspension were overhauled in 2017, which included replacement of the front brake calipers, rear wheel cylinders, brake master cylinder, front shocks, springs, suspension bushings, and more as detailed in the seller’s summary provided in the gallery.
The refurbished interior features black-upholstered seats with three-point seatbelts along with matching door panels and carpets. The dashboard includes a wooden fascia, and a Kenwood AM/FM/CD player and aftermarket speakers were added. A 12-volt outlet has been retrofitted under the glovebox.
The wood-rimmed Nardi Classic steering wheel with a Triumph horn button fronts Smiths instrumentation which includes a 140-mph speedometer and a 7k-rpm tachometer. The five-digit odometer shows 41k miles, approximately 250 of which have been added since the refurbishment. Total mileage is unknown.
The 2.5-liter inline-six was rebuilt and is reportedly modified with a competition cam, larger exhaust valves and seats, .020″ overbore pistons, 6-2-1 ceramic-coated exhaust headers, and a Monza exhaust. Additional work performed at this time is said to include the following: Engine block, cylinder head, and oil pan hot tanked Cylinder head shaved .070″ Crankshaft polished Oil pump rebuilt Timing chain replaced Carburetor rebuilt Fuel tank cleaned Fuel pump replaced Oil filter converted to spin-on type Oil cooler added Pertronix electronic ignition fitted Replacement of radiator and water pump Steering rack rebuilt
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission with J-type overdrive. The overdrive unit was also rebuilt and the clutch components were replaced, along with the drive shaft, rear-axle u-joints, and transmission mount. An underside shot is provided above.
