eBay Listing: 1976 Triumph TR6

This may be classified as a “barn find” when the current seller came across this all-original 1976 Triumph TR6 with a factory hardtop. The original owner had only driven the car 52,000 up until it was sold in 2011. Each year, as told by the original owner, the TR-6 was taken out in April to be driven and put away in December. Even though the car resides in New York, it is free of rust and bondo. The Coco Brown paint is shiny and the tan interior is intact with no rips or tears.

Mechanically, the TR-6 is sound. The seller did some basic maintenance while he had it and claims the car starts on the first try every time. The gearbox still shifts smoothly and pulls strong in every gear. The car has four new Michelin Redline tires and is dependable enough for a cross-country trip.

    Car is actually “Russet” brown. I know because I have one as well. ’76 was the only year for this colour, & BTW, that is not a factory hardtop….

      Ted, thanks for the attention to detail. I wonder why the seller says it has a “factory” hardtop.

        I agree with that bit on the top. I would bet on a “Snug Top” brand. That’s waht it looks like to me.

          It does look like a factory top, the mountings are correct and the headliner looks good and original. The “Snug Top” usually fit over the folded soft top. The factory top required removing the soft top and frame. While it is a factory top, it is the wrong color though, it should be russet brown like the car.

    That is indeed a factory hard top. It has been vinyl covered in Black though. You can not mistake the beautiful lines of a TR6 with a factory hard top.
