1971 Triumph TR6 PI

This is my 1971 TR6 which had a total body off rebuild in the 1990’s, carried out by an engineer in Scotland. I have owned this car for approximately 6 years. The original build took place on 10 May 1971 for the home market. The colour was originally “New White”. As you can see from one of the photographs the TR6 is fitted with a hard top, I have never seen one fitted before. Paul Brailsford
