Hi everyone,

I've been on the lookout for a while now for a GT6 Mk1 that is in good condition and ready to drive. I don't need the car to be perfect but I do want to be able to drive it out-of-the-gate. I've seen some beauts on this forum and would feel better buying from someone who frequents this site; i.e. someone who loves these cars too.

Please let me know if you are thinking of selling or maybe just need a nudge to pass on your GT6 legacy to a new owner. I really want a car that has been loved and for which I can keep on doing the same.

Cheers,
Craig

There's a fairly new post of one that looks good in the Buy/Sell/Trade. Has a video of it. In Canada though.

Thanks for the advice Ted. I've actually been watching that one on BaT but I have a feeling the price is going to be through the roof - it's a gorgeous restoration and there's a lot of interest.

Do you have any opinion about buying off of eBay?

There's one for sale but the bumper is lower on left, inside engine compartment has been sprayed all over with green paint, engine block is blue and just some general wear. The current owner doesn't know much about its history.

I hope you don't mind me asking for your opinion; I just don't know any Triumph guys and this would be my first classic car. I'm trying to find something that doesn't need a restoration straight away but I don't mind having to give it some love down the road.

That doesn't look too bad IMO. There was a very nice '67 that just sold on eBay for $10,325. Not sure where this one will end up. As far as history you could probably track down the owner from the Triumph club (if what the seller says is true).
Any issues with registering in Cali due to emissions? I used to live in Simi Valley myself (Texas tract) and had a hell of a time with my old bronco dealing with the smog nazis.

There shouldn't be any issues register a gasoline powered car older than 1975 according to the CA DMV website:

That one on eBay didn't meet the reserve so it didn't actually sell. I know how to get in touch with the owner but my concern about that one was how the top of the passenger door doesn't line up with the roof (and he just removed that photo). Do you think that would be an easy fix?

You should see it in person, it's gorgeous. Seller has helped me on several cars, and all of his cars are well kept. I seriously considered asking if he would sell it instead of restoring my 70. Kyle.

Thanks for the offer Terrence but I'm primarily looking for a Mk1 or a Mk2. There's something about that curvy rear smiling smiley

Cheers,
