GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1968 Triumph GT6 2-door Fastback for purchase. The GT6 is a 6-cylinder sports coupe that was built by Standard-Triumph and based on their popular Triumph Spitfire convertible from 1966-1973. In early 1963, Standard-Triumph commissioned Giovanni Michelotti (notable for designing many models including several for Ferrari & Maserati) to design a GT version of the new Spitfire line. The fastback design was too heavy for the 1147cc output and the model was shelved. However, the prototype was adopted by the Triumph racing program and its aerodynamics resulted in great success (1st in class at 24-hour Lemans). After re-evaluation the GT6 was born with the Michelotti designed body and the more powerful 6 cylinder Triumph Vitesse engine with a marketing campaign to talk about the racing success.

This 1968 GT6 is a really nice survivor that has been very well maintained and stored. Its excellent condition reflects the proper care this car has received over its lifetime. This car has recently undergone extensive mechanical work by British automobile specialists University Motors to bring this car up to great running conditions. Some of the work includes rear axle rebuild, new Weber carburetors, rebuilt transmission, and a new clutch. There is an aftermarket Pioneer radio/cd player and speakers (not built in). It's powered by the original 2.0L 1,998cc inline 6 cylinder engine paired with a 4-speed manual transmission. This car is a great example of a very fun and stylish British classic that is rarely seen especially in such great condition. Please call or email for more details!
