September 13, 2019 Update: When we first featured this wonderfully patina’d ’73 TR-6 two months ago, the second owner was asking $6,500. Then in August he lowered his price another $500 to $6,000 and we thought it sold. However, in his latest post updated earlier this week, he reports the sale fell through, so its back for the taking. We’re tempted to offer $5,500 cash to see if it sticks and we have a feeling it will! We’ve updated the Craigslist link below – Good luck with the purchase! – RS3
August 10, 2019 Update: When we first featured this wonderfully patina’d ’73 TR-6 three weeks ago on July 20th, the second owner was asking $6,500. Earlier this week we noticed he has since lowered his price another $500 to $6,000 making this example an even more interesting specimen. We’ve updated the first paragraph below accordingly – RS3.
We found this survivor-quality 1973 Triumph TR-6 on Craigslist in Jersey City, New Jersey where the second owner is currently asking $6,000. Based on the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool estimate for this Triumph, the private seller currently has his TR-6 priced $1,000 less than the #4 “Fair” level of $7,000.
We love the patina of this two-owner example and we hope the next caretaker does as well and elects to keep the paint as is rather than respray this car. They are only original once. Good luck with the purchase!
Here is the seller’s description of his Triumph TR-6:
“1973 TRIUMPH TR6 Original survivor, car runs and drives great, just been serviced at William Thomas Roadsters Triumph specialists car was gone through All new fluids new plugs and wires car has electronic ignition brakes were serviced new pads clutch was adjusted + more, have receipt tires are almost new a little larger than standard this car goes round corners like it’s on rails..great fun..this was a one-owner car for most of its life [belonged to father of a friend] I have history and some spares including convertible top, I like the sporting image of the tonneau cover and racing numbers [car was never raced] car comes with clean NJ Title in my name. I’m selling this classic sports car only because I’m gonna retire in a year or so and it’s time to start parting with some of my toys. This is a cash sale only.”
