Monster Tea: 1973 Triumph TR-6

Imagine that you’ve heated your kettle to an optimum temperature of 205 degrees Fahrenheit and poured the hot water over your favourite blend of Earl Grey tea.  Sounds good?  You are about to take a sip and then you realize that it isn’t quite finished, and then you add a shot of espresso, a can of Monster energy drink, and 200 milligrams of medical grade morphine.  Find this 1973 Triumph TR-6 here on eBay offered for $23,595 buy-it-now or make-offer located in Tinley Park, IL.

This looks like a standard TR-6 covered in a nice coat of paint and a set of sweet minilite style wheels, but it isn’t a basic British classic in the least bit.

Under the hood is a 400 cubic inch Chevrolet small block V8 that is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and into a rear end borrowed from a Vette.

Aside from the roll cage (and probably a meaty exhaust note) this thing looks like any other Sunday driven old fashioned TR6.
