£21.5k Cana­dian car is the last TR6 ever to be reg­is­tered

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

The sec­ond-to-last Tri­umph TR6 ever made is up for sale – a whop­ping 3500 miles away from where it was orig­i­nally built.

The penul­ti­mate TR6 to come off Tri­umph’s Can­ley pro­duc­tion line – on 15 July 1976 – is be­ing of­fered for sale by owner Gary Arse­nault of New Brunswick, in east­ern Canada.

He is look­ing for around £21,500, though a UK pur­chaser would have to fac­tor in shipping costs.

It could be the clos­est that any­one will ever get to own­ing the last Tri­umph TR6 be­cause the fi­nal car was never reg­is­tered.

The Tahiti Blue TR6 has just 60,000 miles on the clock, fea­tures in David Knowles’ re­cent book Tri­umph TR6: The Com­plete Story and comes with an orig­i­nal fac­tory- in­stalled brass plate on the glove­box lid de­not­ing its her­itage.

Full de­tails can be found on The Tri­umph Ex­pe­ri­ence web­site. ❚

Tahiti Blue TR6 is left-hand drive and fit­ted with Federal-spec black plas­tic bumper over­rid­ers.

Fac­tory plaque shows that Arse­nault’s TR6 is one of the last six made.
