    Ah, but those awful 75-76 bumpers in the rear. Interesting mixing the round front hood from a '69-70 GT6+ with the other bits. You would be hard pressed to build it for this price. Body looks solid from the pics provided and either repaired well or never cut. You can convert the fat rear bumpers to the cleaner euro style for not a whole lot of cash as everything unbolts – oldcarjunkie.wordpress.com/2014/05/28/bumper-conversion-and-tlc/

    Building a "Spit6" is a popular conversion and what a lot of Triumph guys think the factory could have done. However, I asked Mike Cook directly that question when I saw him at the Road Atlanta Mitty weekend in 2012. He said the factory would not have done this. He worked for Triumph USA for marketing and advertising from the New York City office during the 1960's and 1970's. He said that Triumph execs didn't do that even after the demise of the GT6 because they didn't want it to compete with the TR6 and later the "new" TR7. But it's a good conversion because it's all Triumph instead of shoving a Chevy or Ford engine where it was not meant to be. Cheers!
