|1975||Triumph||TR6||33,177 (Not Warranted)||£17,500.00 + buyers premium|
Supplied new with factory steel hardtop, to Louisiana, USA, in 1975 where it lived but saw very little use until repatriation in 2013. The mileage reading of 33000 is quite likely to be genuine as on return from the USA it still retained its original pedal rubbers (still fitted now) and “red band tyres”, which showed wear commensurate with the low miles. Since then the car has undergone a comprehensive restoration to a very high standard resulting in a superb looking example with a quality finish and excellent panel gaps. The doors open and shut correctly and the fit of the hardtop verifies that everything is where it should be.
Registration in the UK is presently under way and will be complete before the auction date. A heritage certificate will also be supplied. The car has a new MOT certificate with no advisories. It will be registered as Historic and as such eligible for tax exemption.
NB: This car does have overdrive
Auctioneers Notes: I cannot stress the point enough – this car is in exceptional condition. She has been totally re-built. If you can find a better one I would like to see it. She can be viewed by appointment as from now – magnificent !
