Triumph TR6 1971 (K) Burgundy
According to the BMIHT Heritage Certificate, this LHD 1971 Triumph TR6 - Chassis No: CC/67474-L and Engine No: CC/67749-E was built on 13th July 1971 and was registered with the Coventry registration mark AHP 307K as a Personal Export Delivery before being despatched on 10th September 1971 to British Leyland Motors in Newark, New Jersey, USA.
When the car was built, it was finished in Damson with a Black interior and Black Soft Top and the following factory options are shown on the Heritage Certificate:
Heater, Laminated Windscreen, Black Tonneau Cover, USA/Canada specification lights, 185 x 15 Goodyear Tyres, Anti-Smog Engine, Jack, Tool Kit Roll and Spare Wheel.
The car was registered in the USA in 1971 with the Californian number 187 VML, but nothing is known of its history in the USA, although it was repainted in a lovely Burgundy Metallic at some point before it was sold by its owner in Rialto, California in April 1990 to dealer Burnells of Rothwell, West Yorkshire and imported to the UK.
The car has never been re-registered here since it arrived and we are just in the process of registering it with the DVLA and hopefully on its original Coventry number plate. We are unsure as to what work if any has been carried out on the car over the last 30 years, but we do know that at some point the original Engine and Gearbox were removed and a UK 'CR' prefix 125bhp Fuel injected Engine and Overdrive Gearbox have been installed.
We are now preparing it for sale and fitting some replacement Mazda MX5 Seats and a new Soft Top and detailing it to best results. The original seats are not too bad but require new foams and some stitching, but will come with the car.
The car is completely rust free and only requires some cosmetic paintwork attention to make it lovely and it will be given a new MOT and pre-sales service before it is sold.
Further details and photographs to follow shortly.
