Re-listed due to me entering the wrong email address!
With a heavy heart, I'm listing for sale my 1964 Triumph Vitesse 6 Overdrive, or as named by the previous owner, Dusty. This is due to being offered the chance to buy a TR6, so I’m counting all the pennies!
Dusty was registered in March of 1964, making her quite an early example of the Vitesse. She also still retains her original engine as well as the favourable overdrive gearbox.
The car really does excel in its reliability. The previous owner purchased the car in 2013 and set about improving the car gradually and using as a rolling restoration. It was then taken off the road for a period of around 18 months due to other commitments.
Then in September of last year, he set about recommissioning Dusty after her short spell of being parked up. This work included:
- Full service (oils, filters, plugs and points etc)
- New thermostat and hoses
- New rubber boots on the steering rack
- New track rod ends
- New calipers and pads
The car has been regularly used since and has attended many events due to his membership of the Triumph Sports Six Club.
I can also speak to its reliability as I have covered distances of up to 100 miles in her without issue and she always starts right up from hot or cold, even after not having been used for a few weeks.
Also fitted at some stage was a stainless steel exhaust and silencer which remain in excellent condition.
As with most classics, there is definite room for improvement.
From about 10ft away, the paintwork looks perfect. However, some small areas have been hand painted, and the closer you look, the more you can tell. Also, the wood on the interior will need to be re-varnished as you may be able to tell from the photos.
Bodywork condition however is very solid. It's very rot free and only displays some areas of some very light orangey surface rust which would be very easy to treat and prevent from turning into trouble. The chassis and floors are also in great condition.
In summary, this is a very honest car which with a little work, would be a stunning example of this great little sports car.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch by email or by phone for more info or to arrange a viewing. More photos can be taken and sent on request :)
