Triumph TR6 - Looking for a TR6 in Saskatchewan
|Well, the days are getting longer and spring is 'only' 3 or 4 months away, so I'm starting to look again for a TR6. I had a '70 between '93 and '99 so I prefer the older cars but am open to anything. I've been trolling across the 'net in all the usual places but am wondering if anyone on this list knows of a private sale that's available. I'm in Saskatchewan (Canada).|
I'd like something that's in running order and pretty much complete that's worth doing a rolling restoration on. I'm probably not up to taking on a basket case, though.
One you might have missed.
Look under Classified Ads. There is only 18 TR6s listed right now:). Some in US. One in Toronto @ 27,000!!!!
|Thanks, Rick. It's a while since I'd been there so thanks for the reminder.|
You should check out Len Drake at www.drakesbritishmotors.com He has a few TR6's there that should fit your budget, whatever it is. We have shipped 3 cars from Drake's in Kelowna, BC to Newfoundland in the last couple of years and in all cases we got what was advertised and what we expected.Shipping coast-to-coast is expensive ($2200 to Nfld) but if ya want the dream, ya gotta pay. Shipping via Searail (the shipping company - they will ship door-to-door and insure against damage)from Vancouver to Sask should be a lot cheaper.In all cases we purchased on the basis of pictures and phone conversations without ever getting a chance to kick the tires. I would and likely will purchase another car from him in the future and have no hesitation in recommending him. Good luck in your search for the best LBC there is - TR6!
|Just to endorse Bob E's suggestion, Drakes are absolutely great people to deal with, its about the cars not the money for them and it shows in the attitudes|
|Looks like Rod in an other thread is already on the scent of a new 6.|
|Thanks all for the advice. Yes, I am thinking about a '70 from Drake's -- waiting on a compression test and a few more photos before I make up my mind. I'd half hoped that I'd be able to drive it home, but will likely have to ship, so thanks for the info. |
Good luck, you should feel pretty confident in purchasing a car from Drakes, when you speak to Len next, say hi from Bob.
Make that a hi from both Bob's and ask him to ship my new stainless exhaust system and Pertronix so I have something to play with.
|Ok, Who is this Drake fella?|
Western Canada MOSS distributor…cars for sale.
As it is entered on the CD.
|Don't know Drake? Bet da Goose knows. That's where I got my Washington state TR6, Don. The guy is a straight shooter and has some nice Triumphs on his site. He also has some of those other LBC's there too.|
