Primer Project: 1971 Triumph TR6 Project – Sold?

by | Aug 2021 | Classifinds, Sports Car Saturday

October 16, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call us directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.

September 10, 2021 Update – We just discovered the private seller of this ’71 TR6 project just lowered their asking price by one thousand dollars from $12,900 to $11,900.

With fall just around the corner, many of you may be getting the itch to find a project car to pass your time away during the cold winter months. With all of the bodywork reported to be completed and ready for paint, this 1971 Triumph TR6 originally listed in August 2021 in Bally, Pennsylvania (Allentown) is a primed candidate (pun intended). Offered at $12,900, the Collector Car Market Review indicates the current asking price falls between this guide’s #3 “Good” estimate of $11,700 and its #2 “Very Good” appraisal of $20,800.  The optimistic pricing of this non-running project is clearly an attempt to recoup some of his investment and you’ll have to weigh the trade-off of what is clearly a very straight body ready for paint combined with an already detailed frame.

Here’s the seller’s one-sentence description:

“1971 Triumph Tr6 Roadster lengthy in process of a show quality restoration of an early Chrome Bumper highly desirable classic British Six-cylinder manual gearbox Roadster. All the hard work has been completed over the course of my 15-year love affair with this 71′. I have posted a pix itemizing the completed painstaking work I have done. Body sheet metal is arrow straight primed awaiting your color choice. When I disassembled the car for restoration I carefully bagged and tagged every part for clarity and final reassembly. I have removed the original motor and gearbox they are poised and ready for rebuild the rear differential is completed and in the car.

I have well over 20k invested and untold labor hours I currently have the car at a Triumph specialty restoration shop in Pa. it is available for in-person inspections weekdays from 9 to 5. Buyers can choose to finish the car there at a very reasonable cost or use a shop of their own. Price $12,900.00 OBO finished this 71′ Tr6 will command mid 30’s all day long and continue to climb in value. I have a clean clear title to convey to the new owner.”

    I worked at a British motors dealership in the late 70s early 80s. A clean one of these with low miles was Always a instant sale..I really enjoyed driving them.
