The classic Triumph TR6
The Triumph TR6 (1969-1976) is a British 6-cylinder sports car and the best seller of the TR series built by Triumph until production ended in July 1976. This record was subsequently surpassed by the TR7. Of the 94,619 TR6s produced, 86,249 were exported; only 8,370 were sold in the UK.
The bodywork resembles that of the previous model, the Triumph TR5, but the front and rear ends were squared, based on a consultancy contract with Karmann. This is referred to as a Kam-style rear, which was very common for cars in the 1970s. The body shape was similar to the TR4/TR5 except for the rear and front.
All TR6 sports cars had inline 6-cylinder engines. For the American market, the engine had a carburettor, as was the case with the TR250 engine (US only). For the rest of the world, the TR6 (like the TR5) had fuel injection, hence the TR6PI (petrol injection) designation. The Lucas mechanical fuel injection system helped the TR6 produce 150hp. Later, the non-American TR6 variant was reduced to 125 hp to improve driving comfort, while the American variant with carburetor remained as it was.
The TR6 had a 4-speed manual transmission. An optional overdrive unit was a desirable feature as it allowed drivers to drive aggressively with overdrive available on the 2nd, 3rd and top sprockets on the early models. The TR6 had front disc brakes and rear drum brakes. A factory steel hardtop was optional. The construction of the TR6 was quite old-fashioned: the body was mounted on a frame instead of the two being integrated in a unibody structure, the dashboard was made of wood.
The TR6 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 8.2 seconds and has a top speed of 120 mph according to Autocar magazine.
