See this car drive on the YouTube link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ABNNXp5G6k Driving this 1976 TR6 is like a blast from the past. But my clique were members of the MGB club. I always wanted a Triumph or the Austin Healey. They always seemed out-of-reach, whether it was the Spitfire or the TR6. Yes, I became of age in the 70s and what incredible cars we had to drive back then. Between the Porsches, the Fiats,the Alphas, the English cars attracted us baby boomers. Their Non Teutonic and just plain fun factor gave myself and my peers the incredible opportunity of really driving! We were never being distracted by text messages, phone messages ,navigation gibberish, satellite radio and cup holders. No, all we could do, was drive. Experience driving. Experience shifting into gear and to feel the clutch, to move from 1st gear, to 2nd gear then to 3rd ...or not. To really feel the handling how these British cars hug the road as your ass is practically dragging on it! Serial number CF55486UO- The brakes feel good- front disc rear drums .You really got to know your car, especially the brakes . Back then, one needed to how to know to pulse the brakes if you had to come to a hard stop... there was no such thing as ABS . Or you may need to downshift with that transmission if you didn't have any brakes LOL. So taking this 1976 Inca yellow , (one of the 3 yellows made that year for the TR6), was a trip back to my car roots. The car was repainted in 2010 its original color as the code 94 states on the commission plate on the driver's door . The black interior vinyl is in very good condition, no rips or tears. The manual 4-speed transmission has the optional overdrive which I was too chicken to try out . This car shifts the way you imagined it should shift. The clutch feels great, the handling is responsive, though there is no power steering. You can get a upper arm work-out in the parking lot . Because the carbs were recently adjusted ,this car just purrs along (please watch the video). A compression test yields it's in good condition for engine #CF45895UE showing only 32,468 miles. Cylinder 1 through 3 -150 psi, cylinder 4- 135, 5- 1:40. We welcome trades and can arrange financing.
