I'm not much of a mechanic but it won't stop me. I know that the '76's are
prone to rust.
Any clues as what to look for and where?
The asking price is $15,500 low milage and garaged.
Take your time and look around! First stop is to go to the Vintage Triumph
Register's website at: www.vtr.org You can study the ads there for
general pricing info, and I believe they have a section on purchasing and
maintaining TR6's. You might also check to see if there is Triumph club in
your area and contact them. They generally will have folks interested in
you learn about the vehicles and you might even find a TR6 you are looking
from a club member. I have come to believe that many club member's cars
are usually in better shape than the average street car. $15K is too much to
TR6 in excellent shape. Lastly join VTR and a club after you get your TR.
Before closing, remember that Wedges (TR7 &TR8's) are far superior
cars than those TR6's and other old junk.
Good Luck and Have Fun!
