1972 Triumph GT6

RH Classics > Sold Classic Cars > 1972 Triumph GT6

A very nicely restored Triumph GT6, which we are pleased to present for sale on behalf of the current owner, who spent the best part of 30 years restoring the car.

SYG511L was first registered in October 1972 and is a home market, GT6 MK111, finished in Emerald Green black leather trim, complimented by a bespoke burr walnut dash.

A low mileage car, showing less than 78000 miles from new and supported by a comprehensive history, which dates back over 20 years. Works include a substantial body off restoration, with photographic evidence of everything completed. The car benefits from a full engine rebuild, comprising re-bore with oversize pistons, polished crankshaft, new bearings, unleaded head with new valves and guides. In addition, the car has been upgraded with a stainless steel ‘6-3-2’ manifold, oil cooler, new oil pump, reconditioned carbs and an electric cooling fan.

In local ownership and maintained by us, this GT6 has benefited from substantial expenditure over the years, resulting in a very well presented, tight driving car.

Cosmetically, it’s lovely, with great paint and brightwork, complimented by an excellent interior, also fully restored. A GT6 finished in the right colour is a lovely thing to behold and this one looks purposeful, sitting on Minilite style wheels.

It’s an absolute hoot to drive; its diminutive proportions fit you like a glove; in so many ways reminiscent of an mini-E Type, emitting a lovely noise from those twin pipes that leave you smiling from ear to ear every time you drive it. Riding on adjustable Spax dampers, it’s really great fun and represents exceptional value for money at just £16,450 ono.

If you’re looking for a well presented GT6 that’s been comprehensively restored, then we’d highly recommend this example for viewing at our rural workshop just outside Melton Mowbray.

Having maintained these cars since they were just another old sports car, we really do know our GT6’s. This is a nicely restored example by its enthusiastic owner, finished in one of the most desirable period colours and has been thoughtfully upgraded for the next owner to fully enjoy.
