Evaluation: Enthusiast restoration | Final-year GT6. Represented with little
history other than time in a large collection. Paint is good if a little hazy, with minimal swirl. Mild scuffs on the steering wheel spokes, but mostly very good interior with tight upholstery. Clean wheels. Tidy engine bay. Brightwork looks decent. Probably never fully restored, but never neglected or abused, either.
Located in California.
Bottom Line: Triumph originally priced the GT6 to compete with the MGB GT, and for years, the two budget British coupes were worth about the same. But buyers have caught on to the fact that the Triumph is rarer, quicker, prettier, and has two more cylinders, making the GT6 one of the few British sports cars to gain serious value in the past few years. But you wouldn’t know all that by looking at the result here. The price is about three years behind the curve and barely half of Bonhams’ perfectly reasonable $25,000 low estimate. What a bargain.
