Hagerty Garage and Social is proud to offer this meticulously restored 1974 Triumph TR6 in classic British Racing Green for sale at our New York facility.
The Triumph TR6 was introduced in the US in fall 1968 for the 1969 model year as the successor to the TR4A. The TR6 carried over the old school body-on-frame construction which traces back to the 1953 TR2, but added independent rear suspension and a smooth, throaty straight six. Most enthusiasts prefer the narrow, taut Karmann bodied TR6 over its more aesthetically controversial and mechanically complex monocoque successor, the TR7.
All US market TR6s were carbureted, and all came with a 4 speed manual. The TR6 is certainly a drivable classic despite its early emissions control handicaps. With 101 horsepower, 128 lb/ft of torque and a curb weight below 2500 lbs, it comfortably strides with modern traffic. And with nearly all of its parts in reproduction, you won’t ever be subject to an arduous search for original unobtanium to keep it roadworthy. This is especially true of a car restored to the standard of this one.
Fewer than 100,000 TR6s were produced globally, and 11,440 US Spec TR6s were produced for the 1974 model year. The remaining number of roadworthy TR6s is unknown as they had a proclivity for structural rust. What is known, however, is that values for cars in the Concours stratum have been steadily rising as the population of quality driver examples of the TR6 and its contemporaries has slowly shrunken over the last decade.

This particular TR6 was acquired by the current owner in 2014 and has been stored at Garage and Social since then. Under previous ownership, the car underwent a nut and bolt restoration that addressed every mechanical system and every body crevice with no expense spared. The interior was redressed in upgraded leather, wool carpeting and new Hawaiian wood inlay and is covered by a new cloth top. The most recent service, completed in May 2021 at Keane’s Autoworks in Bedford Hills, NY, included carburetor and timing adjustments and replacement of the heater valve assembly along with all heater hoses and associated hardware. This is a turn-key, fully sorted car.
For the British roadster enthusiast who wants a show-ready TR6 in its natural color combination, it would be impossible to replicate this car for the asking price. We’ll save you the trouble.
