GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1973 Triumph GT6 Mark III 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 GT6 spent most of its life in Colorado before last purchased ten years ago and then brought to Michigan. It has been stored, well maintained and driven in fair weather only. We hold receipts as the car has been routinely professionally serviced each spring (including rebuilt carburetors, new rotors/pads, new shift kit, new water pump, and new gas lines). It's powered by the 2.0 liter 1,988cc inline 6 cylinder engine paired with a 4-speed manual transmission. There is an aftermarket sunroof which is a popular coach work modification done in Europe for great air movement inside the cabin. Don't confuse these cars' performance with the 4 cylinder Spitfire. These cars have a very reliable inline six with dual carburetors that is a lot of fun to drive. It's a great driving experience with an awesome and very rare body style. Please call or email for more details!
