Classifind Cut: 1970 Triumph TR6 – Sold?
September 9, 2022, Update – We somehow missed updating this listing after it expired in early 2021. We’ve since updated it accordingly to prevent any further confusion.
January 30, 2021 Update – we just confirmed the seller of this “Classifind” replaced their original listing with a new one that relies on the same pictures, description, and asking price.
Suppose your classic sports car tastes lean towards a vintage Triumph TR-6. Still, the thought of mechanically and cosmetically sorting one scares you, then this 1970 example was originally listed in January 2021 on Craigslist in Holyoke. In that case, Massachusetts might be more to your liking. Said to be thoroughly refreshed over the past twelve months after spending the prior thirteen years in storage, this freshly sorted, 62K original mile example could be yours for $15,500 or the best reasonable offer. Comparing the asking price against the estimates found in the Collector Car Market Review Online Tool reveals the private seller has their vintage TR6 priced between this guide’s current #3 “Good” estimate of $10,250 and its #2 “Very Good” appraisal of $18,000. Using the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool as a second data point confirms this private seller has this Triumph priced between the #3 “Good” estimate of $13,300 and the #2 “Excellent” appraisal of $23,600.
Here’s the seller’s description:
“For sale is clean 1970 triumph tr 6 with 62200 miles. In storage for the past 13 years, it has been upgraded extensively in the past year, replacing any item that appeared worn or needed refreshing.
