1976 Triumph TR6 from North America


Dream! (one word is good huh?)


This car takes constant care. Not real expensive, but maintaining the car is not optional; you have to.

General Comments:

There is only one thing that I would want different... more power. This car is beautiful! It is perfectly balanced. It was built to ride with the road and respond with your reflexes. If it had 500hp and handled the same, there would be no reason to look further for a roadster; it is fast enough, but faster?... it's what a sports car is about. I have seen very few cars that have such a "Look"; the TR-6 is just gorgeous.

1976 Triumph TR6 from North America


A highly recognized and much sought after classic British sports car, that is what it is


Car is basically stock and for me has been pretty much trouble free. Cosmetic upgrades only.

General Comments:

The car is fun to drive.

If you are a large person, this is not the car for you.

It's a huge head turner.

It is not a fast car in its original engine state.

Trying to make it faster will quickly decrease the value.

Trying to modernize this car with all the after market upgrade parts available will dramatically reduce the collector value.

If you want to own a Porsche, buy a Porsche, this car does not handle like a Porsche.

When I was a teenager back in the early to mid 1970's, I don't think there was a car I wanted more. The TR6 was a great-looking British Sports Car!

Quick and solid. Easy to repair


It gets dirty and I have to change the oil.

The only big problem is that the air conditioner always made the engine overheat in heavy traffic. So, I just took it out. Problem solved.

This is a good "just for fun" second car, but it is a dream on the interstate at 70 mph, especially at night with the top down.

General Comments:

This car is a shade tree mechanic's dream. You can just about take the whole thing apart with a screwdriver and a 1/2 inch wrench.

It is not hard to repair. My slave cylinder failed once and I just changed it out on the side of the road. Parts are readily available by mail order.

It gets good gas mileage and it has so much torque that it will fool you into thinking it has double its actual horsepower.

The fun factor is off the chart for this car.

I have a 1972 TR6. Just had to put a new clutch in and all the bits that go with it; boy am I glad I have a friendly bank manager.

It's a long, tedious and expensive job to get the gear box out.


1970 Triumph TR6 from Australia and New Zealand


Not practical, but fast, reliable, head turning fun


Heater fan blowing fuses.

Fuel pressure relief valve stuck.

General Comments:

The car is very quick even by todays standards.

The overdrive transmission makes cruising at high high speed fuss free.

It corners like a go cart on smooth roads, but unfortunately the front end is unstable on bumpy roads.

The cabin is a little cramped and the seats are not comfortable for long distances.

It also attracts a lot of attention and comments from people of all ages.

But, Do you like the car? I just bought a 1974 and a half back in Feb. Only drove it about 40 miles. The interior needed some work, smelled like it was about 30 years old. I bought all the interior stuff from moss motors. I'm replacing panels, carpet and upolstry. Also trans tunnel and driveshaft tunnel. The car I bought needs paint, but its solid, no rust what so ever, the guy that had it before me, had the motor rebuilt, front end suspension rebuilt amongst other things, car is by far original equipment, no modifications done to it. Pretty good shape for an Illinois car. Well good luck with yours.
