I used to own a 1967 Triumph 2000 Saloon and it had a Borg Warner automatic
transmission. The Triumph 2000 had the same engine as a GT6. Rare car stateside
as was only imported in L.A. or N.Y. from what I heard.
Good thought and good response to keep a GT6 on the road.

This has been done by a few folks in the TR6 (and even one that I know of in
a Sports 6) using at least the BW-35 autobox from a Triumph 2000 sedan, which
actually might be more plentiful in Canada than in the US? In the case of the
one Sports 6 conversion I heard about, it involved some very major
reconstructive surgery of the chassis, since the old Borg-Warner is an
extremely bulky unit.
Maybe there's something more modern out there nowadays that can be made to

Fellow Triumph fans. I need some help.
I received an email from a guy today. He is restoring a GT6, but
recently has lost his left leg below the knee.
Still able to drive, but only with an automatic.
