Fuzzy Logic: 1972 Triumph TR6

Creative without strategy is called 'art.' Creative with strategy is called 'advertising.' -- Professor Jef Richards Chair of the Dept of Advertising & Public Relations at Michigan State University.  The problem with surfing craigslist/eBay for too many years is that you start to believe the hype, and you assume that any advertisement with horrible pictures and a terse description is junk -- but that's where you'd be wrong, because some of the best stuff on craigslist doesn't appear to be good at all. Find this 1972 Triumph TR6 offered for $5,500 in Brunswick, GA via craigslist.  Tip from Zach.

The Triumph TR6 was a British roadster introduced in 1969 to replace the TR5/TR250 which was really just a slight change to the TR4...etc etc.  The TR6 did last thru 1976 when it was replaced with the wedge shaped and unloved TR7 -- but while prices aren't booming, Hagerty assigns a $7k price to a #4 Fair car.  This one runs, but needs some TLC -- but this could be a good deal if isn't blurry when you see it in person.

  1. Can confirm. Sometimes it's the worst ads that are the biggest finds. Also possible I'm a glutton for punishment. But I have picked up some really nice cars and rare parts off CL for very little cash due to just horrible postings.
