Barbara L 1973 TR6
After belonging to the
TCNF for nine years, and not having a running Triumph, I started looking
for a car I could drive. The final straw that broke the monkey’s back
was our winning a car rallye in the TR truck! Embarrassment!
In December 1998, I
purchased a 1973 TR6 from club member John Drummond, who had owned the
car four years when he had to give up driving. John, an FSU fan,
painted the car maroon. To date we have put 7,270 miles on the car, the
longest single trip being to
Tallahassee, about 185 miles. The car currently
has 80,543 miles on the odometer. This is a weekend driver that we love
to drive; we do not aspire to the Concours level.
The previous owner (Rae Dexter)
purchased the car 11-21-83 and sold it to John 3-24-94. The original
owner is unknown. The car was manufactured in November 1972 to be sold
as a 1973. The original color was Emerald Green. The Commission# is
Work currently underway consists of
replacing the wiring harness, replacing the 14” tires with 15” stock
wheels with coker redline tires, replacing the rear bushings, and
restoring the original paint color. We work at the pace of Bill and
Karolyn Slowsky , so an expected completion date might be October 2009
