F40 Motorsports is proud to offer this 1967 Triumph GT6 MK1 Coupe. This Triumph has a number of unique features that set it apart from others on the road. According to the Heritage Trust Certificate, this GT6 is registered as a "completely knocked down" car that was shipped to Belgium on 29th of December, 1966 for assembly before eventually heading to the United States in March of 1967. The first owner of the car would keep it for about a quarter of a century before selling it to the owner of Philadelphia Motorsports in the early 1990s. Filled with dreams of making a raceable streetcar, a comprehensive restoration and high performance conversion was begun.
Entirely disassembled, every part of the car was renewed, replaced, or upgraded. The frame was boxed for greater stiffness while the suspension was upgraded. The original engine was replaced with a similar unit that was over-bored and machined to accept a full circle rear thrust washer on the crankshaft. The head was ported and the high performance parts were magnafluxed and balanced before assembly. Attached to the new mill was a transmission that was rebuilt using a heavy duty gearset corralled by a heavier clutch and road race rear differential. The new found power was laid down by racing wheels and oversize radial tires. Spent dinosaur juice was dispensed with by a Stebro exhaust system while a Ron Davis aluminum radiator kept everything cool.
In order to make the car as safe as possible a full roll cage, fuel cell, and Nomex upholstered racing seats were tastefully integrated. The interior was topped off with custom door panels and a carbon fiber dash that incorporate modern gauges, power windows and a JVC sound system.
Completed in 2001, it was never actually raced. The current owner acquired it in 2006 and reports that while it delivers excellent performance, it has been driven fewer than 1000 miles since the restoration.
Accompanied by its Heritage Certificate, service manual, and numerous original parts including the differential, dash, door panels and seats, this 'mini E-Type' is sure to delight whether it is on the road or track.
