Condition 4
#4 cars are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped.
Condition 3
#3 cars could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 car, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior.
Condition 2
#2 cars could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 cars that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws.
Condition 1
#1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best car, unmodified, in the right colours, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours.

History of the 1969 - 1976 Triumph TR6

The 1969 Triumph TR6 looked like a new car upon its introduction, but it was in fact a very clever Karmann facelift of the Triumph TR5. While the convertible’s mechanicals remained consistent, the front and rear panelwork were re-shaped into a more modern style, including the TR6’s infamous 'grinning' radiator grille.

The TR6’s doors and windscreen were still taken straight from the TR4, as were the underpinnings. Wider wheels were fitted, and steel were standard, with stylish chrome trim rings to maintain the exclusive look. Inside, the Triumph’s seats were given a little extra padding, but under the bonnet things continued as with the TR5 and TR250, with fuel injection and 150 bhp for most of the world and 104 bhp with carburettors for the USA.

The TR6 remained unchanged until 1976, when the TR7 was ushered in to replace it, but the relationship between the two cars was limited to the TR name only—there were no carry-over parts.
