The GTR-6 was finished in spring of 2012 as a daily driver and cross-country traveler. There are no concerns keeping up with traffic.

 

 

This is a 1973 Triumph Mk3 GT-6 frame, hood, brakes & front suspension. The GT-6 vent windows and heater have been added for improved ventilation in the cockpit. Rear suspension is the Roto-Flex system from a Mk2 GT-6.

The drivetrain is a Triumph TR-6 engine, TR-6 transmission and J Type overdrive (OD on second, third & fourth gear). There is a Good Parts triple Stromberg manifold, TriumphTune valve cover and Crane ignition, all else is stock. Drivetrain including differential built by Steve Yott of The Silver Lake Triumph Centre.
