1968 TRIUMPH GT6 MK1 For Sale by Auction

Offered for sale by Barons Classic Car Auctioneers at Epsom Race course (KT18 5LQ) on Tuesday 14th July. For more photos and full details of the car, please see the listing on our website The Triumph GT6 production ran from 1966 to 1973. In early 1963 Giovanni Michelotti was commissioned by Standard-Triumph to design a GT version of their recently introduced Spitfire 4. An unmodified Spitfire 4 was delivered to Michelotti's design studios in Italy and late in 1963. The styling of the vehicle was a success but the extra weight of the GT bodyshell resulted in extremely poor performance from the Spitfire's 1,147 cc power unit, and plans for producing the Spitfire GT4 were shelved. To overcome the lack of performance inherent in the heavier body style the Spitfire's 4-cylinder engine was replaced with the more powerful 1998 cc 6-cylinder engine from the Triumph Vitesse. The car was further developed and refined and eventually launched as the Triumph GT6. This 1968 Triumph GT6 has been owned by the vendor since 2000. The car has been stored during this time, and though the car runs and drives on idle, the carburettors are not connected to the throttle pedal. The car is in good condition and has been re-painted in the recent past. It is said that the engine has been re-built, and the interior is in good order. A chance to get hold of the original style low bumper Mk1 GT6, in good order, which are increasingly difficult to find.
