Description
This 1976 Triumph TR6 CF56933UO, paint code 75 in British Racing Green and trim code 74 for Beige or tan as it is referred to was sold by Troncalli Motors in Decatur Georgia to its the 1st owner. I have all of the dealer paperwork and receipts for this car. The vehicle total was $7187.00 on 9-27-1976, and this includes the J-type overdrive transmission, the factory hardtop (hanging on my garage wall), and $185.00 for the AM/FM MPX radio, which I have in a box. The dealer added the luggage rack, the silver striping and a body side molding strips that have been removed at some point and there is evidence of these. The 1st owner had the car until 2002 when it was sold to a collector in New York. He had it for a little over a year and then it transferred to it's 3rd owner in Illinois and he had it for about 7 years.

The engine in its factory state of tune for 1976 was way under powered for my taste, so that was the first thing I addressed. And that stage included the following;

Richard Good - Good Parts - Roller Rocker 1.55:1 ratio
Good Parts - Harmonic Balancer Kit
Wishbone Classics - WBC518NR camshaft, lifters and valve springs
eBay - Shaved and ported cylinder head to bump compression ratio to 9.5 to 1
Wishbone Classics - Camshaft gear and crankshaft gear, timing chain, new thrust plate
Wishbone Classics - Aluminum water pump housing
Racetorations - Alloy water pump and pulley
Disconnected vacuum retard from distributor


All of these mods and parts made the car way more driveable and with a noticed increase in power. The aluminum water pump parts look cool, they save weight and they are just better parts than factory stuff. The engine was not removed to install the camshaft, just the hood and the front grill.
