1974 TR6 - Sapphire/Shadow blue - SOLD March 2013 Thanks Lenny!
PRESERVATION CAR! This is a one family car with 66,000 miles and much original paint. Cars truly this original are quite rare. Take with a grain of salt statements of originality from sellers who have no supporting documents. Also be wary of oxy-morons like "all original - just restored" or boasts of low miles when all of the upholstery and carpet has been recently replaced. This car has an all original interior from the dash top to its wood fascia to its carpeting. Some of the items in this car cannot even be purchased new like the color coordinated velour wind laces in shadow blue. Even the seatbelt tags are dated "1974". Also here but usually long gone in these cars are the seatbelt "ports" for parking the buckle when not in use and the leather jack belt in the trunk. It has been fully serviced and tuned in our shop with consumable items like coolant hoses, etc. replaced. It drives just like Triumph intended and you cannot beat the sound of a straight six going through its gears under a freeway overpass or in a tunnel. VIN: 5018U0

1971 TR6 - Jasmine/Black - SOLD 12-29-2011 Thanks Brad!
This matching color code TR6 had an extensive
restoration in 1989 and has been meticulously maintained ever since as a show
car and weekend driver. Following is what I received from the last owner:
The Body Restoration was done by Auernig in Roseville, CA. It was extensive and complete, taken down to metal and included the engine bay. The recent photos taken of the engine bay back this up.
The interior carpets, door panels and seat covers were completely replaced, the dash is the original.
All of the chrome was replaced with original "new old stock" including light bezels.
All of the lights have been replaced. The NOS or "new old stock" was found at swap meets in the 90's. The previous owner found a guy in Plymouth, CA that had an extensive amount of "new old" parts and bought them up.
European Motors on 16th and T Street in Sacramento, CA did the mechanical rebuilding. Both the top and bottom ends have been rebuilt to spec including balancing the engine with the fly wheel on. He also rebuilt the transmission. No expense was spared in rebuilding the engine, the best parts available were used including Stellite valves and valve seats in the cylinder head. Wherever and whenever possible, stock parts have been used or the most expensive replacement parts. Take the fuel pump as an example.....you can get a $50.00 pump, he replaced the it with a $130.00 pump. He always went with the up rated parts. When he replaced the front rotors two years back (as an example).....he put Brembo rotors on the car, a definite upgrade at a premium. The carburetor, linkage and manifold work was done by
Paltech, http://www.paltech1.com/ a carb restoration specialist....again a premium restoration specialist, factory trained by Zenith Stromberg.
This car has been loved its entire life by all three of its owners. All three always maintained the car and that shows in the condition its in today. Never has the car been in a state of disrepair. It has always been running and driven over its 40 + year lifespan. It has always been garaged and all three owners have invested in its condition making it better over time.
At one point or another virtually all of the mechanical systems on the car have been rebuilt / reconditioned or replaced. Even the wheels were sent to a shop to recondition them. The front suspension was completely rebuilt two years ago. The alternator was rebuilt 3 years ago.
The chrome and lights are in fantastic
This car has participated in many car club shows. The car has been a member of UBSCC (United British Car Club Sacramento) for years. It has been a class winner on many occasions, most recently the 2009 UBSCC show of which there were 30 TR6 entrants. It sat in the Winners Circle at the 2010 show. It also has been judged as a "Gold" quality car at Triumphest.
The car has only had three owners in it's nearly 40 years and the first two were brothers. In the mid eighties the two brothers actually traded their classic cars....a 55 Chevy for the Triumph. The third owner took possession 8 years ago.
Because this car is street driven expect a few chippies here and there. The body sides are extremely straight. The chrome shows as new. It drives outstanding. VIN: 58798L
1973 Stag SOLD 12-26-2011, Thanks Brett!
A lot can be said for this particular Stag: One owner California car, mostly original paint, absolutely rust-free, all original paint still on the floorboards inside and out, overdrive transmission, alloy wheels, San Diego garage find, rust-free. It would be extraordinarily uncommon to find even a "normal" car (think Mustang or Camaro) with all of these attributes let alone a model this rare.
More: original keys w/code tag, all of the rare, original labels and decals seem to be in place including the date coded seatbelt tags. Optional air-conditioning (not serviced).
Pay particular attention to the photos of the floorboard as those in the Midwest and Great Britain can only dream of finding cars there this original and unsullied.
With all of the interest and press for survivor cars this one is a winner in every way.

1968 TR250 SOLD 9/07 - Thank you Tiff!
Regular visitors to my site may have visited my "THE LIST" page and read about my quest to acquire great examples of cars I've never owned (click "THE LIST" above). This is the first of the LIST cars. I've had many, many TR6's but never a TR250. I found this example 100 miles away in the near desert of Temecula, CA. It had been in the hands of the same owner for 37 years and is still wearing its California "Black Plates". This is a 75K original mile survivor still sporting its original carpet, upholstery and dash; simply amazing.
After my purchase I proceeded to recondition the car to my standards. In short, we lavished nearly 400 labor hours or over $50,000 in my restoration shop on this car. One could call this a "sympathetic" restoration or a major reconditioning. My aim was to preserve the originality yet bring the car to extremely high mechanical standards so it would be a pleasure to experience. We didn't redo the hood stripe to erase years of polishing that left it thin or nonexistent in some areas, we left the excellent interior original only cleaning to show a wonderful patina. Safety items were changed, oil pressure was brought up to new specs, weather equipment was refreshed, a couple of pieces were re-chromed, everything was adjusted, fettled and massaged.
Whoever purchases this car benefits from my 30+ years of experience with old cars(22 years this business). I bought this car for myself and I don't just buy anything. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. $32,100 Photo Page.
