Triumph TR6 150 bhp 1970 (H) Red
This stunning Triumph TR6 150bhp Sports is an original RHD UK car - Chassis No: CP514490 and Engine No: CP50425HE is finished in its original specification of Signal Red with Black trim and it was sold new to its first owner Mr Royston Haynes of St George in Bristol and registered on 12th May 1970.
Mr Haynes kept the car for 19 years before selling it to TR specialist TR Bitz in Warrington, Cheshire as a restoration project in 1989 with 44,000 miles on the clock and they carried out a complete 'body-off' chassis rebuild including a full mechanical rebuild of the engine and gearbox, all of which cost in excess of £17,000 at that time.
Upon completion and it was sold to a Mr G L Simmonds from the Isle of Man and registered in the Isle of Man and Mr Simmonds kept the car for 6 years before selling it back to TR Bitz in 1996. They in turn sold it in February 1996 and it had one more owner in September 1996 before being purchased by a Mr Gregory Cook from Twickenham in January 1999.
Mr Gregory kept the car for 17 years and he had it serviced and MOT'd by local specialist Crown Classic Cars in St Margarets, Twickenham every year and also had an 'unleaded' cylinder head conversion, new Alloy Fuel Tank and a full Poly-Bushed suspension kit fitted during this time.
He sold the car to Crown Classics in December 2016 and they decided to carry out a full cosmetic restoration on the car which was only finished last year and with works including:
A complete bare metal repaint in two pack Signal Red, a new CCC specification Mohair Soft Top, new Mazda MX5 'Heated' leather Seats, New Teak dashboard, flock lined glove box, new windscreen wiper wheel boxes and wiper motor, Wool carpet set, upper and lower steering column bushes, CCC genuine Bosch Fuel Pump set up, New 'unleaded' Metering unit, Differential overhaul, CV type Drive Shafts, New Clutch and Flywheel re-face, New brake & Clutch Master Cylinders, new Battery, heater upgraded Motor and Matrix, Mota-Lita leather steering wheel, new Chrome Wire Wheels, new Stainless Steel Bumpers, new Boot trim kit, a new Grille and all fixings and lastly a light Waxoyl of the underside and chassis.
Suffice to say, this car is in exceptional condition throughout and drives superbly and it has a fantastic Service History including a full ownership record, a huge number of invoices, letter from TR Bitz regarding their body-off chassis rebuild, ownership expenditure log, lots of old tax discs and MOT certificates. The mileage covered now is a genuine 53,260 miles but only approx 9,260 miles since the full restoration and engine rebuild in 1989 by TR Bitz.
This really is an outstanding car and certainly one of the best TR6's we have had for a while.
