Triumph needed to create a car that competed with the highly successful MG B GT and so instructed Michelotti to design something beautiful utilising the hardware from the successful Spitfire.
Most car enthusiasts would agree that he pencilled a curvy, pretty car that in many ways was superior to the MG.
The first version was moderately successful and by the time the MK2 was in production in 1969 it was a well sorted and engineered machine with much improved rear suspension design.
This example was restored to an amazingly high standard within the past few years.
There is a good history file inc pre restoration and a lot of photos of the work carried out. I have driven the car less than 2k kms since full restoration.
There are only a few Left Hand Drive MK2s surviving in Europe and it is undoubtably far prettier than the high volume MK3.
Performance is very brisk with a very short throw gear change with smooth overdrive on fourth and a silky smooth 6 cylinder engine adding to the experience, this is a very well set up GT6 !
I have enjoyed every mile with its go kart style handling and strong engine pulling the car along with perfect reliability.
One of the prettiest value for money 1960s Coupes and far rarer than an MG.
