1972 Triumph GT6 #6
This is a fully documented Triumph GT6 race car originally out of the Kastner Brophy racing stables.
The Triumph GT6 was produced from 1966 through 1973. The GT6 followed on the heals of the Spitfire sports car. The body was a fastback with the rear hatch being able to open.
The vehicle came from company as a two-seater but if requested additional seating could be place into the rear but it could only accommodate a small child. Under the long, building hood was a straight six-cylinder that produced just under 100 horsepower. A four-speed manual was standard; overdrive was offered as optional equipment. Top speed was around 106 mph with zero-to-sixty taking about 11.7 seconds.
The Triumph GT6 MK3 was the final upgrade for the GT6 series; it was introduced in 1970 and lasted until 1973. Triumph revised the body which brought it inline with the design of the Spitfire. Just before the vehicle was discontinued, the suspension was again revised this time with a swing-spring setup. 1973 brought about other changes such as cloth seats, replacing the previous vinyl. Servo brakes were also added.
