THE TRIUMPH GT6

In the early Sixties, Triumph charged Giovanni Michelotti with the task of creating a GT version of the Spitfire 4. By replacing the 4-cylinder 1,147cc motor with the beefier 6-cylinder 1,998cc engine, the car was launched as the Triumph GT6 in 1966, with a racy fastback silhouette, soon commandeered by the Spitfire racing program. By 1970, several changes had been made to culminate in the GT6 MkIII with some body-styling improvements, —although the hugely popular sloping bonnet à la E-Type remained—upgraded suspension, the addition of an antiroll bar, servo-brakes, and seats in cloth, rather than vinyl.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This lovely 1973 Triumph GT6 was completed in Pimento Red with black trim on November 24, 1972 and dispatched the following January to a dealer in Baltimore. The previous owner located the car in St. Clair Shores, Michigan, and purchased it on November 23, 1992, twenty years, almost to the day, of its factory release. The car was complete and original; however, required both mechanical and aesthetic refurbishment to enable the new owners to show and drive the car in local autocross and hill-climb events.

By 1999, following seven years of careful maintenance and trouble-free touring, the 1973 GT6 was deemed worthy of a top drawer, "no expense spared" restoration. It was delivered to Surrey Motorsports of Niles, Michigan, a respected specialist in British Marque restorations, where works began in October that same year.

All systems (e.g. engine, transmission, brakes and suspension) received a complete overhaul and rebuild, using NOS factory parts where possible. Re-robed in regal Valencia Blue (BL paint #66) over black, the car returned to its owner in April 2002. From here it went on to win several accolades, including Vintage Triumph Registry's Best of Show and Preservation awards. This superb GT6 has since been driven sparingly, garaged in the winter in a climate-controlled facility, and maintained meticulously. It is reluctantly offered today by a prominent Chicago-based collector, with a treasure trove of original parts, period correct brochures, and a BMIHT certificate.
