Footnotes

  • Its sports cars having relied exclusively on four-cylinder engines for the preceding decade-and-a-half, Triumph turned to six cylinders to extend the life and improve the performance of the much loved 'TR' series. Similar to the preceding four-cylinder TR4A - the first TR with independent rear suspension - but with Triumph's 2.5-litre, six-cylinder engine installed in place of the old 2.1-litre four, the TR5 was produced during the 1968 model year only (October 1967 to November 1968) pending the arrival of the TR6. Restyled for 1969 by Karmann of Osnabruck, the TR6 sported a full-width nose and squared-off tail. Under the skin the chassis remained basically the same as its independently-rear-suspended TR4A ancestor's, while the 2.5-litre Lucas fuel-injected power unit was unchanged, producing 150bhp initially, 124bhp from 1973 onwards. Handling was improved over that of the TR5 courtesy of wider wheels and a front anti-roll bar. Good for 120mph with acceleration to match, the six-cylinder TRs are arguably the most exciting Triumphs ever made, continuing to enjoy an enthusiastic following world-wide and an excellent network of spare parts and service providers.
    This 1972 TR6 has the desirable 150bhp engine and overdrive gearbox. Very original, even down to the steering wheel, it has been off the road for the past 11 years in dry storage and is offered for restoration. Sold strictly as viewed, the car is offered with an original handbook, Swansea V5 registration document and a file of invoices and expired MoT certificates dating back to the early 1980s.
