As far as price goes you should be comparing the TR6 with the roadster as both
are convertibles.  1972 saw the biggest ever annual sales of the MGB at 39,000
units, I don't know how many TR6s were sold.  Of these 2/3rds were roadsters
and 1/3rd GTs.  Hardly poor sales, and not bad at all considering they were
are different animals as far as the driving experience goes.   After the first
four years of production 1972 also saw one of the lowest historical costs
taking inflation into account of 105%, 1977 was fractionally lower at 104%.
Two years later in each case it was 130% in 1974 and 143% in 1979.

I think the TR6 is a lovely car, and if I were buying more cars I'd have one
before I had an MGA.  But after a K3 and a TF 1500.  But that is just my
personal opinion.

  Now I understand why the MGB GT sold so poorly in these days.
  The Triumph TR6 only was some $ 100,00 more expansive than the BGT!
