Historical Background – The Triumph TR6 model was produced in England between 1968 and 1973, and was out of a total of 94.619 produced, an incredible 92% were exported! Our stunning Mimosa Yellow example, with chassis number: CF 3251 U is no exception. British Heritage Trust confirmed that our latest example to arrive at Cathedral Classics was exported to Canada in early 1973 before finding its way back to Europe late in 2021. Imported from a marque specialist it was intensively restored before being given historic registration (classic car) and status. Now ready for the 2022 season it would be an asset to any exclusive collection or else a super specimen for first time classic car buyers. All relevant MOT documents have been filled in for the new owner to get the first entry on the car's registration document.
Exterior equipment – Not many cars get away with a yellow, but our Mimosa example looks as confident in yellow as a 6 year old boy in a new Spider-Man costume! This Triumph color should simply take the shape of the TR6. This fantastic 1973 model disappoints no one. Repainted in its original factory color it breathes new life back into the car. The interior painted panels are still present with factory badging so the new paint job makes the car pop again. A new PVC soft top has been added to the package so that any potential owner can be totally delighted with it. Lower the roof and it reveals a gorgeous roll bar with its own integrated high-intensity brake light. Both features are normality in Ex Canada cars, and can be changed if desired, but why would you want to do that?! All the contrasting chrome and brightwork complement the exterior color that grabs every glance; both the front and rear bumpers with matching ball mirrors and, of course, the quality luggage rack on the trunk. British Motor Heritage Trust has confirmed that frame number 3370-CF. Chassis number CF 3251 U a matching match are.
Interior – It's an incredibly fresh looking interior with clear markings on all switchgear and dials giving it an almost new look. Standard PVC seats with adjustable headrests in stunning condition and matching the other black elements: Dashboard; Door panels; Sun visors; Black carpets and rubber mats with Triumph emblem all in markless condition. The quality of the carpeting and especially the insulation make a very good impression, a lot of care was obviously taken here. A period Blaupunkt radio cassette is fitted to match the car's original veneer covered dashboard. With the new PVC top it sits well in place and is covered by a good half tonneau with a whole array of rivets.
Engine and transmission – If you open the hood you will find a very well maintained engine compartment with a lot of chrome so that the smile remains when cleaning. Heritage Trust confirmed that our 2, 5 liter 2498cc engine with number CF 43732 UF – is from a later model which is also much more reliable, very efficient, the version with 104 hp (78kw). The car had a complete carburetor cleaning with a new ignition coil. Electronic (Petronix) ignition was installed. The fully synchronized 4-speed manual transmission with overdrive works both ways well.
Wheels, tires and brakes – A complete set of 5 new spoked wheels with chromed wings, which are in high quality covered with (almost new) Michelin 205/65 R15 M&S tires. The front disc and rear drum brakes stop the car straight and true, as it should be.
