Hello. This 1971 Triumph TR6 is in great condition both mechanically and cosmetically with only 7k miles since having a complete frame-off restoration. The car drives smooth and straight. The engine is strong and won't have trouble keeping up with the flow of traffic or doing highway speeds. It's powered by the original rebuilt inline six cylinder engine with dual Weber carbs coupled to a 4-speed manual transmission with overdrive, independent rear suspension, rack and pinion steering, 15-inch wheels with disc brakes on the front and drums at the back. It does not have power steering, but it's easy to manage since it's a small car. The fuel economy is around 15 city and 20+ mpg highway.
Some things worth mentioning:
-The carbs are well tuned and reliable (even in heavy LA traffic), but it does require some knowledge of working a choke when the motor is cold, which can be easily explained if you are comfortable with that
-The convertible top takes a couple minutes to properly put up or down (I can demonstrate)
-Has modern seat belts for both driver and passenger, but no airbags
-Has a heater, but no A/C or radio
-Locking trunk and glove box for safe storage
I am happy to rent the car out for a variety of situations, and would prefer confident drivers who have experience with classic cars and a using a manual transmission. I believe it's a durable and dependable car, but classic cars do have limitations and may not be suited for every situation. Please let me know a little bit about any planned trips or intended use and the expected mileage and I will get back to you promptly.
