Vehicle Description


Cincy Classic Cars is proud to offer this stunning 1974 Triumph TR6 which is beautiful fully restored condition and priced to sell. This TR6 received a full frame on restoration with only 2000 miles on the car since its completion a few years ago. The car sat idle and mostly apart for over 10 years then the previous owner purchased it and completed a 5 year frame on restoration. The previous owner has over 50 years of restoration experience and it really shows on this TR6 all around the car. He started painting cars when he was 16 and is still painting cars to the day. When we arrived at his shop to pick up this TR6 he was painting a Triumph motorcycle. This TR6 was converted from Factory Maple Brown to the stunning Sapphire Blue a few years ago and the transition was completed extremely well. This TR6 features beautiful Sapphire Blue paint, a terrific fully restored interior, a nicely running 6 cylinder engine and 4 speed transmission, and a wealth of maintenance receipts and service records. This TR6 is extremely solid with great lines and gaps and shows no signs of visible rust on the body or anywhere on the frame and underneath. This TR6 is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combinations of Sapphire Blue exterior over New Tan interior.


The Sapphire Blue exterior is in fantastic restored condition. This TR6 was painted about 2 years ago by a gentlemen who has been painting cars since he was 16, he is now 76, so over 50 years of experience. It was converted from brown to blue and the execution is nearly flawless. He took the car apart and prepped it properly and laid an excellent paint job on it and reassembled the car. You would never know the car was not factory blue and its a consistent paint job from exterior panels, to door jambs, to the engine bay. The paint is in wonderful condition throughout the car and has a shiny gloss and smooth overall touch. There is no evidence of rust anywhere on this car or underneath. The body shows no rust at all and no bubbling paint. The original floor pans and frame rails are rust free. The underside is very honest and in excellent shape. The bumpers are in awesome condition and the overrides have been removed. There is a receipt for $600 to have the front bumper restored and re-chromed.
They look very well well on the car and shine nicely. There may be some minor imperfections that are not noticeable in the photos, but noting was intentionally excluded from the photos. The tires have full tread left and were purchased a few years ago and are sized 205/70/15 and the wheels are nicely restored originals. The convertible top is in good overall condition and so is the top cover. All weather stripping and seals are in like new condition and most have been replaced with included receipts. Trunk is very solid and clean with a new trunk mat, original spare tire, and original jack tools. Both doors have “Triplex” original glass and both are in excellent shape.


The New Tan interior of this TR6 is in excellent restored condition. The seat covers are in excellent condition with no major wear, seam splits, or rips or tears. These were professionally installed and are like new in every way, and new seat foam was added as well. The black carpet is brand new as well and in excellent condition with no major stains, rips, or holes. The door panels were replaced as well and are in like new condition and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The dash is in great condition with no cracks or fading and the wood dash surround is in great condition as well. The dash pad was just replaced and in new condition. The original steering wheel looks great in the car and the horn works. The gauges are very crisp and the chrome around them are in excellent shape. The interior lights all work and are bright and crisp. All interior and exterior lights and gauges work as they should. The horn, wipers, gauges, heater and stereo all work. This TR6 has an original style stereo which works. This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma what so ever. The glovebox light works and the original TR6 manual is located inside.


This TR6 is in nice mechanical condition and it runs and drives really well. The engine was reassembled as well and at least the top end was rebuilt with new rockers, rods, springs, lifters, etc. The previous owner stated the pistons were new also and block work appeared to have been performed prior to his ownership. We have driven this TR6 numerous times around town and on the highway and it always performs very well, does not run hot, rides tight, and is a true joy to drive. Previous owners of this fantastic TR6 have kept meticulous care of this car and there is a 2 inch folder full of receipts that is included with the car. In the video one can observe this car running and driving with no excessive rattles or noises, and the car handles and performs very well. The camera makes some squeaking noises when moved around especially during shifting, you can hear the same type noises during the walk around video when camera is moved. This TR6 is an excellent driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs great. This TR6 starts quickly and holds idle within a few moments of having the choke on. In less than one minute the choke can be fully off. The brakes do not pull and stop as they should. This TR6 has a newer stainless steel “Falcon” stock style muffler and exhaust system from front to back and was recently installed, see included receipt. The exhaust note sounds great at idle and cruising speeds. Also, the engine is meticulously clean and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos.
