1971 Triumph TR6: Father And Son Project

TR 6A

This Triumph TR6 is ending soon! Listed here on eBay and located in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey is a father/son project that didn’t get done. They are offering it with a BIN of $6,000 or best offer.

The owner states that this project has a solid body except the for the rear valance and that their is some rust in the trunk.

There is a “new frame rebuild”, a good running 65k engine, and a rebuilt gearbox.

He states there is a newer exhaust, newer tires and many of the parts were rebuilt/painted POR 15.

If you are looking for a TR6 and/or a project you can may an offer in the next few hours.  Good luck!

Cheers,
Robert

    if all the parts are there an offer could be made. might be harder to test the motor/trans/diff when they are out of the car. interesting find

    No bids yet and 5 hours to go. If it sells I hope the buyer knows these cars real well or has a very good friend who knows them and is willing to spend a lot of time putting this car back together.

    Stalled projects like this can be some of the most frustrating and difficult ones to tackle unless you already know the car well. The entry price of $6K is way too high since a lot of these were made and survive and you can get a running, driving TR6 for that or not too much more. People who have spent time R&R-ing a car and then abandon it all needy and apart often seem to want to get well paid for every hour they put in. From my point of view it doesn’t work that way.

    The “shut lines” on the pass. door look wonky to me.

    That would be consistent with what I believe SHOULD have been done here, when dealing with CONVERTIBLES.

    When you see (one of the more REAL) car shows do a “body off,” rotisserie restoration, first, they take some small (“square-tube”?) steel and tack weld an “X-type” “frame” inside the cockpit area, to MAINTAIN THE PANEL GAPS, during the resto.

    Even though this is not a rotisserie resto, technically, I believe this should have been done and, in it’s absence, I think there could be fitment nightmares, when it comes time to mate the body back onto the frame–in terms of shut lines, and panel alignment, generally.

    I would not be a buyer, at any price, and I LOVE these cars, and have done so, since I was a teen.

    But perhaps I’m more risk-averse than most.

    And I think it’s too much; I agree with both Dolphin and Peter above. And I have owned 4 TR6’s and currently own 2.5.
