5k: Some Assy Required: 1971 Triumph GT6

The Triumph GT6 started life as an attempt by Triumph’s racing program to gain speed advantages on the long straights of Le Mans – and it was successful with a Spitfire modified to GT6 fastback shape winning first in its class in the 1965 24 Hours of Le Mans.  It is one our favorite classic European fastbacks because they are light, simple to fix and cheap to buy.  The Triumph GT6 market has been reasonable for as long we can remember, so buy a GT6 not for collector status or future appreciation, but to use as a daily driver.  Find this 1971 Triumph GT6 for sale in Henderson, MD currently bidding for $3,550 with a few hours to go.

This GT6 isn’t a minty clean classic– in fact it has rusted panels and hasn’t run for a few years.  It does however look decent for the current asking price and perhaps could be turned into a running/driving car with a few weekends and some fresh seals.

The GT6 is powered by Triumph’s over-head valve inline-6 that displaces
2.0 liters and puts out 104 horsepower. The GT6 isn’t a fast car in today’s
overpowered minivan traffic, but it was fast in comparison to the small
displacement inline-4 powered Triumphs, Austins and MGs of the day.

The interior looks like someone set off a hand grenade inside this green machine, but those parts can be picked up from various internet sellers like victoriabritish.com
