Vehicle Description


Cincy Classic Cars is very proud to offer this Unrestored 1975 Triumph TR6 which is beautiful original condition with low “Actual” Miles of 47,649. This TR6 has only had two owners from new with the previous owner having the car from 1977 until we just purchased the car in 10/2017 after he had passed. This TR6 has been meticulously cared for and maintained over his ownership with hand written service records dating back to 1977 with mileage accounts for each record. The mileage is “Actual” not only by the included service records but also by the clear Ohio title showing the mileage as “Actual.” The original “Passport to Service” is included as well from the original owner and dates from the time she purchased the car until the second owner purchased the car in 1977 just after the 12,500 service interval. The original owner information is hand written in the pamphlet along with the original dealer stamp. The original dealer sticker is still located on the rear of the car in the upper left hand corner. The car was sold new in the Indianapolis area and never left the general area. The original owner manual is also included along with several receipts dating back to 1977. The oil change service records date from 5/20/1977 until 7/12/2008 with actual mileage stated at every oil change. Just an amazing original document authenticating the history, mileage, and originality of this special TR6 and rarely seen. This TR6 is very original with just standard maintenance items being replaced. This TR6 features all original beautiful Maple Brown paint, a terrific original unrestored interior, the original 6 cylinder engine and 4 speed transmission, a matching hard top in great original condition, and a host of original documents, service records, and receipts. 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 Maple Brown (code 73) exterior over Black (code 11) interior. This is the correct factory color scheme as indicated on the commission plate pictured above.


The Maple Brown exterior is in fantastic unrestored original condition. This TR6 has never had any paint work performed and has all original rust free body panels. The original paint shines very well and is in excellent condition for its age and shows very few flaws for being 42 years old. The original ID tags in the engine bay are factory correct and solid proof of original paint. This TR6 is very solid and no visible signs of rust were found.
The original floor pans and frame rails are rust free. The underside is very honest and in excellent shape. We did not touch up anything underneath this car or use any spray paint in anyway anywhere on this car. The included service record booklet shows the car was rust proofed at 27,341 miles. The original bumpers are in excellent condition and the overrides are in excellent condition as well. The bumpers have no pitting or dents and no major scratches and shine extremely well for being unrestored originals. There may be some minor imperfections that are not noticeable in the photos, but noting was intentionally excluded from the photos. The tires have good tread left and are sized 205/70/15 and the wheels are unrestored originals with original correct trim rings that are in excellent condition. The original top is in near perfect condition for its age. It has the correct ribbon around the edges, correct diamond pattern on the inside of the top, and correct stampings on the windows. The top cover is in excellent condition as well and it also comes with a toneau cover that is like new. This TR6 is extra special as it comes with a matching hard top that is in great unrestored original condition as well and comes with the car. All weather stripping and seals are in good condition but are originals. Trunk is very solid and clean with the original trunk mat, spare tire, and original jack and tools. All glass is “Triplex” original glass and all are in excellent shape.


The Black interior of this TR6 is in super nice unrestored original condition. The original seat covers are in overall good condition but there is a tear in the bottom inside drivers seat bolster. The original seat foams have flattened on the sides but the seats are still firm and comfortable. The original black carpets are in excellent condition with no major stains, rips, or holes. They have the correct snaps on the bottom sides of the carpet. The original door panels are in great condition and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The original dash is in excellent condition with no cracks or fading and the wood dash surround is in great condition as well. Amazingly the vent surrounds still have the original chrome ring in tact. A rarely seen feature usually only seen on low mile original cars like this one. The original steering wheel looks great in the car. The gauges are crisp and clean 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, outside of the volt gauge. The horn is currently not working. This TR6 has an original style stereo that seems to work but both speakers are blown and need replaced. 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 well. The engine appears to be original and we were told by his widow that it was never removed from the car and was always reliable. It is very factory correct and appears unmolested as is the rest of the car. The smog pump and lines are original and the emissions appear all in tact and original. We have driven this TR6 sparingly as we just received it and we are trying to keep the miles to a minimum as its a low mile original car. This TR6 is tight with no odd noises or rattles as you would expect from a low mile original car. It performs very well, does not run hot, rides tight, and is a true joy to drive. The previous owner of this fantastic TR6 kept a meticulous service log of this car and drove it sparingly with great care and love. The detailed service records are included with the car and date back to 1977 when he purchased the car and go until 2008, and for some reason end there at 46,828 miles. Car was only driven about 800 miles in the last 9 years. 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. 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. The brakes do not pull and stop very well. This TR6 appears to have an original style muffler and exhaust system. Also, the engine is very clean and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos. The engine appears factory correct and stock in appearance and unmolested.
