1970 Triumph GT6 Mk2 RARE For Sale
RARE Triumph GT6 Mk2. Standard 2000cc, straight six, twin Stromberg carburettors. Signal red. (paint code No.32) MOT and road tax exempt. Historic vehicle registered. Registered 1/1/70, so built in 1969. New style V5 in my name. Comes with some Triumph club magazines, book, catalogues etc. Eight track player (not connected). Very rare being a Mk2 (only a few in the country for sale- they're over 15k up to 25k). This one is £6995 ono, so it has some issues: please read. It runs and drives, that's a good start! Starts very quickly- it has a new battery, clutch feels good, gearbox selects easily and smoothly including reverse. Brakes work but feel slightly on, though the handbrake works OK, lack of use probably. Stainless steel exhaust. The engine sounds smooth and quiet like a six cylinder does. It is a little smoky, it's been unused for a while though and the oil is old. It's running rich too- a new oil filter will be supplied. No leaks from engine or coolant. Wipers work and washers, lights ok, indicators need looking at. Tyres all matching and look to be in good condition. Paint is very good on the roof - the bonnet lip exceptional for a GT6 as they normally rot. No ugly sunroof to spoil the lines either. Such a nice shape... Shock mounts on the Mk2 fit to the wheel arches. The off-side mount is solid, but a small repair of seam welding is needed to the near-side one. However, a common conversion is to buy aftermarket brackets that bolt onto the chassis like the later models have, and then, by fitting shorter shocks and mounting of them to the brackets it bypasses the need for welding the arch mount. They are available at Moss, Rimmer Bros etc. Bonnet paint very shiny and nice, o/s wing dented and repaired, front arches rusty. Rear arches good. Valances a bit out of shape but can be replaced with fibreglass ones for £40. Chrome overall is good, bumper at front pitted but straight. Paint on the sides of car OK, top nice, sills very solid, solid floor with some seam welded patches. Rear trailing arm mounts strong. Boot looks fine, rear quarters reasonable but not structural. Drivers glass missing, need to source eBay! The tailgate is a little bubbly, however I know of a rust free one for sale for less than £80. Has the very desirable and rare sports seats (later mk2s had the mk3 type). There's a tax disc present from 2002, so at least we know it's not been off the road since the 80s/90s. It may not be the last disc to have been issued. In summary, if you consider that an off the road total restoration project Mk2 is going to be around 4K (and I've seen them at 7k) and an average on the road car 12k plus, this presents an opportunity to have a car that can be improved upon over time while using. It will need a trailer because of the above mentioned points + it all needs a bit more sorting before becoming a properly useable car, but it's very rare and has to be one of the nicest shape classic cars out there.
