TR6?` Lovely car. I had one a few years ago and thoroughly enjoyed our relationship. Reliable, plenty of low-down pull and sounded great. An ideal (fastish) touring car. Now the kids have grown up and have their own cars we only need two seats. Another TR6 could well be on the cards.

I have a late 1974 model TR6. I have the optional hardtop and use it in the late fall and early spring. It is a terrific addition to noise control. I only drive the car on nice days spring through fall. I have the overdrive which helps, but for longer highway drive, I have added a cruise-control. I absolutely love the c.c. unit! I restored the car from the frame-up. The TR6 is a fast car, handles very well for what it is: a 30+ year old 'sports' car. If you want a totally reliable, comfortable family oriented car, go buy a new Honda.

I had a TR6 PI back in the early 70s and drove it all the way from Spain to Sweden and back. Unfortunately I didn't have the overdrive option. I added small spacers to the wheels, to have a slightly wider footprint and it stuck to the road like glue. Had both the hardtop and the tonneau cover. The only hassles were the injectors, which clogged up regularly.
All in all, a great car and far superior to the unfortunate TR7 that followed it.

I have a 1974 TR6. This is the most common year I see of this car. I got it about four weeks ago, and it is still running. Since then my dad and I have done a lot of work to keep it running. We plan to rebuild it all the way down to getting the frame powder coated. After that it will get wider tires, an overdrive, performance suspension, leather interior, and a supercharger to make it the ultimate TR6 sports car.
