Triumph TR6 - Finally Parting with Family Airlume

Well, I've posted it in the BBS's Classifieds.
http://www.british-cars.co.uk/cgi-bin/gen5?runprog=tr&a=&mode=home
Think it must take some time to get approved before it's listed.

Anyways, here are the details.

-----

1975 (74-1/2) Triumph TR6 with O/D (original-Dealer install), +58,000 miles. $15,000 Cdn firm (buyer pays all taxes), No Dealers. Father was original owner (me 2nd). Original paint Topaz (still have original touch-up cans). Never seen Winter. Stored many Summers (including this one).

London Ontario Canada. By appointment only. Contact: johnston21@hotmail.com, further contact info will be given then. Please put enough info in email Subject line for me to clearly identify as not being spam.

Weird emails will not be replied to.

Note: I want this car to go to an enthusiast.

Runs great, only issue is passenger window requires servicing, re: doesnt stay on rail.

Appraised at $15,000 Cdn

Reason for selling: Purchasing mothers 1983 Mercedes 560SL.

All paperwork for many, many, many years.

Many Extras (Front to Back) and other Details:
No bodywork all original, no rust.
Aftermarket oversized front roll-bar (a must to compensate for aftermarket rear roll-bar)

Spin-on oil filter adapter (non-oil cooler model)
Stainless Steel Oil sump accessory hose
Oil Pump (fairly) recently replaced
Never any top-end or bottom-end engine work. At some point, rings should be replaced, re: #1 spark plug can foul after a few thousand miles.
Transmission recently over-halled (done properly in Oshawa, Ontario)
Tinted aftermarket windshield (doors are original glass)
Aftermarket Rockford-Fosgate head unit & amp, no speakers
Alarm system with Pager

Should say "Rear Sway-Bar..." not Rear roll-bar (aftermarket of course oversized)
P Johnston

...no offence, but it should say "heirloom" not Airlume...but then again who's checking?
JT White

JT, maybe it is an airlume ;)

Yes, my wife was (once again) quick to point out that my spelling is awefull.

But unless the webmaster corrects it on my behalf, I guess it will stay as is...
P Johnston

Sorry to see the car leaving your family, and for a Mercedes. If your gonna get one like that, at least it should be a early 60's 280 cabriolet

Sorry to see that your selling the .TR6.
Still remember the drive when you stopped by
in Pickering as a nice sounding/driving car.
To bad you can't hang on to both.
Cheers and good luck

Love to know who the guy was in Oshawa who did the tranny... can't seem to get lucky with mine right now.
Hope u find the right owner.

PJ Unfortunately since July 1 the purchaser will have to pony up 13% tax instead of the previous 8%. This is all Ontario tax - not HST. It is the Provincial Government's idea of not giving private sellers an advantage over dealers.

Barry
also 75 TR6
