1971 Triumph GT6 MKIII Perfect To Restore

1971 Triumph GT6 MKIII Good Base To Restore

Found this British sports car in original yellow paint over black leather being offered for sale by its owner asking for $16,500, located in central LA. As shown here is the 3rd generation GT version of the Spitfire known as GT6 MKIII released in 1971.

No words about rebuilding or refurbishing, seems like the original example of the Triumph GT6 1971 MK3 is on the market today. Powered by a 2.0-liter inline-six mated to a four-speed manual transmission with 94000 miles shown by the odometer, it could be a perfect base to restore.

1971 Triumph GT6 MKIII Interior

As you've seen here is a two-seater two-door fastback, with an original-rimmed steering wheel on wood-dash fronts, completely instrumentation consisting of a 160-mph speedometer, a tachometer, including a cassette stereo, and a radio. Overall the interior looks a good shape far from rotten or torn but needs a reupholstery job to be perfect.

1971 Triumph GT6 MKIII engine

Very less info on the engine part, but it's a good angle view by photos, making it show well the engine detailed is a 2.0-liter inline-six claimed is run good and strong. Despite the fact, this is a non-runner, looks quite well cared for in its age. The engine side would be the main factor in what a wonderful survivor it appears to be. GT6s aren’t the most valuable British car you can buy, but this one looks perfect if you’re seeking a project that doesn’t have a lot of homework to sort out.
