1973 TR6: Teardown

Today we finished the first stage of teardown on this untouched, low-mileage 1974 TR6 for restoration. This very solid example has typical undercoater all over the inner fenders that will be removed and replaced with Wurth Self Etch Primer under a topcoat.

Many of the inner surfaces will be blasted while the entire exterior will be chemically stripped to prevent warping.

Almost Done: Triumph TR250

This Triumph TR250 restoration began in the USA and was completed here at Owen Automotive to get the car up and running.

The TR250 is a relatively rare Triumph that was made only in one year for North America as an interim model between the Tr4 and Tr6. It uses the TR6’s six-cylinder engine, with twin Stromberg carburettors unlike the fuel injected TR5 in Europe.

Many rare pieces were sourced to complete this car including the Surrey targa top and factory-correct steering wheel.

It was photographed right after an extensive wet-sand and polish by Jetstream Custom Auto.
