Car Of The Day – Classic Car For Sale – 1975 Triumph TR6

by Mike –

Here is my pick for the classic car for sale today that I would like to own. The first car that I bought was a 1974 Triumph TR6. I did love that car and quite often I think about buying another one.

The color of this TR6 is unusual but I love it – yellow with some orange. The factory hardtop is very rare and valuable. A one owner TR6 with only 19,000 miles is quite a find.

There are only two things missing: overdrive which is very nice on the freeway and the regular TR6 factory wheels. I do not think that the TR6 came with wire wheels and this one has two sets! The first thing I would do is put the factory wheels back on which the seller says also come with the car.

I suspect it will sell for around $25,000 – what do you think?

Let us know what you think about this classic Triumph TR6 in the Comments.

As a reader of My Car Quest you are different than other car enthusiasts. You don’t think of classic cars as a hobby but as art, a lifestyle, and an obsession.

You have different tastes and you want something different from My Car Quest than from other publications. I know this because you have told me so in the Comments and in private emails.

This is a place where we share stories and photos of our cars and adventures.

Just recently the owners of two different cars that I wrote about left Comments in a Post or sent me an email about their car. Reading what the owner of the car had to say is always entertaining and educational.

I love it when readers leave Comments or send me an email and tell me something I did not know. Sometimes they point out mistakes that I made in a Post. I am always happy to learn from readers who know more than I do.

I am only one person so I cannot write comprehensively about the classic car world. I write about what interests me and I hope it interests you too.

I want My Car Quest to be free from the influence of advertisers, big companies, editors and publishers and I think you do too.

  1. I have always thought these were great looking British roadsters. Is $25k a realistic number? – that seems high.

    The price may seem high…until one takes into consideration the costs of restoring one. This one has 2 very hard to find qualifications: a) 19,000 original mi and b) one owner. My friend recently did a wire wheel conversion on his bug eye sprite to a tune of $5000. I’m estimating the top in its current condition to be $1500-$2000. That’s $7k right there. I do agree that the car would be better off with factory rims, but that may require bringing back stock hubs…
