TR6 4-Speed Overdrive

What We Like

The Triumph TR6 has remained a desirable British roadster since it was released for the 1968 model-year, yet some examples truly stand out from the crowd, such as this one. This New White over Black TR6 was delivered new to the British Embassy in Washington, D.C., is optioned with a factory hard top plus the sought-after 4-speed Overdrive gearbox, and includes documentation to verify its excellent provenance. In addition to its intriguing history, this TR6 received $5,000+ in servicing in May 2023, plus a factory-color repaint in November 2023. If you're looking for a well-equipped TR6 with an interesting past, good documentation, and recent servicing, this sharp example is well worth your attention!
