While the name is most closely associated with classic motorcycles, there was a time when Triumph also built four-wheeled vehicles. And while the history is a bit tumultuous — the car-building branch changed hands a number of times before going defunct — there are still examples of their autos floating around out there. In fact, a 1969 Triumph GT6 in spectacular condition is currently up for auction.
This particular Triumph actually wasn’t in the greatest of condition a few years ago. Thankfully, it benefitted from a multi-year restoration that included a rebuild of the six-cylinder 2.5L engine, the repair and refinishing of the Michelotti-designed bodywork, and a reupholstering of the interior. All told, roughly $70k of well-documented work went into this absolutely gorgeous LHD British sport coupe. With a clean Nebraska title, this auto is presently on Bring A Trailer with the current bid at an astoundingly-low $20,000 with six days to go — but we expect that number to jump quite a bit before the hammer drops.
