"Hi Jesmond, I don't know if I told you when we were corresponding that I am member of the South Canterbury Vintage Car Club. Last Saturday the club held one of its more important rallies of the year called the Mid Island Rally. I went in the Austin A55 and was one of about 68 vehicles that went on the run. It had a good showing of vehicles some old model Ts right through the years, the latest one being a 1964 mini. You name the brand of vehicle and it was there. Mine was the only Austin. We had good weather and I understand it was about 180 miles start to finish. It extended from Timaru through to Geraldine and then into a private forest. That was a bit challenging climbing up to the hilltops on roads only made for logging trucks. I was pleased to get back onto tarseal once we were on our way home. As usual I didn't get anywhere in the rally, thats not my luck. Prior to starting off from the Clubrooms they had a Concours display . About a dozen or perhaps eighteen vehicles went in it. I decided to put the A55 in the display. I don't know when the judging took place and we heard nothing until after the placegetters in the actual rally were announced. There was a table of Cups and Certificates being handed out . All went until only one big cup remained. I thought it won't be me because Ive never won one yet and next thing my name came up. I won the 2014 Concours Cup in my class which was (Post War Vintage) Every comment about the A55 on that day was good and she's going well. So there you have it Jesmond,I don't know if any other vehicles you've had have won Concours but now you know at least one has."Bernie Fairbrass, Timaru, New Zealand
The bodywork closely resembled that of the previous model, the TR5, but the front and back ends were squared off, reportedly based on a consultancy contract involving Karmann. This is referred to as a Kamm-style tail, which was very common during 1970s era of cars.
All TR6 sports cars featured inline six-cylinder engines and Lucas fuel injection.
This car also features a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive - a very desirable feature giving drivers close gearing for aggressive driving with overdrive available on 3rd and fourth gears, yet "long legs" for open motorways.
This TR6 also features semi-trailing arm independent rear suspension, rack and pinion steering, 15-inch (380 mm) wheels and tires (which also come with vehicle), pile carpet on floors and trunk/boot, bucket seats, and a full complement of instrumentation.
The TR6 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 8.2 seconds and has a top speed of 120 mph (190kmh)
Various maintenance and servicing records available, this car can be best described as a well kept, tidy, and presentable example.
Paint work has seen better days with minor crazing developing in some areas, which is visible only from close proximity. That said, body is still very straight and clean of rust and paint is still nice and shiny.
Interior is very tidy. So is engine bay, boot etc. Good tires all round. Hard top available with car.
PRICE FIRM. Will be sold with a 6 month WOF and 12 month Registration.
