I've Got Stripes: 1973 Triumph TR-6

The Triumph TR-6 is a cool car no matter how you slice it...but add some sweet 70s graphics on the side, and you've hit a bonanza of style.  A veritable cornucopia of bodacious atomic bismuth.  Find this 1973 Triumph TR-6 offered for $9,100 in Denver, CO via craigslist.  Tip from Zach Z.

The seller is my kinda guy -- he admits that he doesn't need the car because of creaky knees, cranky back, and expanding waistline, and doesn't need scammers or help selling the car.  But the best part is that he isn't asking an insane amount of money for this thing or expecting some kind of 401k sized cash out of the market.  

This TR-6 looks to be in great condition inside and out, but is priced somewhere between #4 Fair and #3 Good pricing per Hagerty.  I'd wager to guess that the next owner of this car will be a happy man, or some ruthless bottom-line driven eBay flipper.

  2. And, no rubber baby buggy bumpers on this one.

  3. Growing up my uncle had one of these in blue, it was gorgeous. Unfortunately we were barely allowed in the garage to see it, and a ride in it was out of the question. I've always wanted one since.

  4. As a current owner of an aesthetically-challenged TR6 I can really dig this one. Chances are the rear camber issue means it's time for new poly bushings in the suspension.
    Why oh why aren't TR6 values going up? Back when I bought it ten years ago I was split between it and a 240z. I really can pick 'em.
