Recent Buyer Review – Simon Welsh on 1st May “Found my ideal 90’s sports car on Trade Classics. Living in Bournemouth and the car being in the Midlands I relied heavily on the advert, photos and videos.
On picking the car up I wasn’t disappointed. Everything was as it had been described. So I got straight into it and drove home. What a drive put a smile on my face.
Thanks very much Trade Classics and I’m now looking out for my next classic to add to the collection.”.

Meet Alan, he’s owned this car for nearly 3 years, purchasing it from a garage that carried out a full body-off restoration on the car.
Alan had always wanted a TR6 ever since he was a young boy. So, when the the opportunity came to buy one later in life he snapped up this example. A big inspiration and driver for Alan to buy a TR6 particularly, was that his grandad owned a couple of TR6’s when he was growing up.
Since Alan’s ownership, he’s looked after the car. It never goes out in the rain (today was an exception) and all of the paperwork and service history is filed in a very orderly manner. The condition of the car today is testament to it being cared for and dry stored in a garage at all times.
Alan is looking to sell the car as his family has now out-grown it and he isn’t using the car as much as he would like to. So it’s time for a new custodian to buy and enjoy.
This TR6 is finished in a lovely shade of blue, Triumph “French Blue” to be specific. It looks absolutely stunning.
Wheels & Tyres
15″ wire-wheels wrapped in Vredestein tyres all around. The wheels look lovely, take a look at the images to see the detail.
The bodywork is great on this car, take a look a the video review to see the shut-lines and panel gaps. Since purchasing the car, Alan has kept it garaged and the condition of the bodywork and underside is testament to keeping it from corroding.
This “French” blue paint is lovely. The finish and colour is even across the car. We captured the detailed video review before the shower, but even with a bit of rain on the car, you can see how lovely the paint condition is. Watch the video and take a look at the photos.
Glass and Trim
The glass and brightwork across the car is in great condition. No visible signs of pitting and the roof importantly kept us dry. The car also comes with a matching tonneau cover, in line with the condition of the rest of the car.
Along with the exterior renovation, the interior was also attended to and now looks excellent.
Seats and Carpets
Blue leather seats and black carpets trim the interior of this TR6. It looks very smart and we didn’t observe any issues with the seats and carpets. Take a look at the video review.
The wood trim to the dash was one of the only things that Alan said could be something to work on, but you’d loose an element of originality if you did. The dials and instruments all look great, take a look at the photos for the details.
Steering Wheel / Gear Stick
A lovely wooden steering wheel and a classic gear stick with leather gaiter. Both look excellent. Watch the video review to see them up close.
Alan made an exception and took the car out in the rain for us, so that we could film our normal “On The Road” video.
Engine and Gearbox
The car burst in to life from cold, the 2.5L straight-six engine settling down when at temperature and no adverse smoke from the exhaust. It’s fitted with a 4 speed gearbox, with overdrive, went through the gears with no issue.
Suspension and Brakes
Taking the car along the local roads, over some speed bumps and rough terrain, we didn’t hear any knocks/squeaks or rattles. In fact, the only thing we could hear was the lovely exhaust note and the wind-screen wipers doing their thing! Alan also confirmed that the car brakes as you would expect for a fully rebuilt and restored car. Watch the video to see it in action.
During a leisurely drive around some coastal areas, it was a pleasure as a passenger and importantly the roof kept us completely dry!
Electrics and Other
Alan tells us that everything works on the car as it should. On the video, you’ll see all the dials and instruments giving readings as we would expect on the short drive.
Only 2 previous owners before Alan on this car. The mileage is believed to be genuine given all the MOT history that tracks its use. The car was fully rebuilt and restored by the previous owner prior to sale to Alan. The recent heritage certificate confirms it is a matching numbers UK car (only 8,370 were sold in the UK).
The car is showing just over 23,527 miles as of 12.09.2019.

The TR6 is one of the great Triumph sports cars. Some 80,000 were exported overseas, only around 10% were UK RHD drive cars, so to find one like this is pretty rare.
We love the sound of the 2.5L straight-six engine. This car presents itself as a potential for a collection, or ready to be driven away. The low mileage and low ownership makes it both collectable and driveable. A few thousand miles on a 23,000 miles car from 1974 won’t devalue this example.
