Hello Richard Crawley, My name is Ian Barnes and I bought VVC 633J when I was 25 years old and collected it new from Triumph on the Western Avenue, If my memory serves me correctly it cost around £1,800. I felt so proud when I drove the car out onto the Western Avenue and took it to show my grlfriend in Marylebone. It's a long time ago since you posted this. I wonder if the vehicle is still around? Great days!

We have not seen Richard here for several years but if he still has that TR6 it has been in very good hands for the last 46 years.


Hi Stan, @Richard Crawley was on here a few months ago in this thread. Maybe now I’ve tagged him he may see this thread.

Hi all

Having once been the Forum’s second highest contributor, unfortunately I don't visit much these days. I didn’t see Ian’s recent reply to my 2006 post but got a PM from Derek Graham yesterday (thanks Derek) drawing my attention to it & I’m going to PM Ian today. I will have to look at my forum settings as notifications seem to have been switched off some time ago as I didn’t even get any for my recent post about recomendations for a new cover; the forum format has also changed considerably since I was a regular.

The 6 is still going strong & looks fairly good even though it’s 18 years since I finished its total restoration. The paintwork & detailing is obviously not as good as it was in 2002 although I did have the car professionally polished & detailed recently & the car came back looking amazing; quiet expensive though! Unfortunately it leaks oil from practically every seal as even the newer one’s are now over 20 years old & my next job is to get them all replaced. I’m always getting told off by the kids for dripping oil all over their drives when I visit in the car & now carry some flat cardboard boxes around in the boot! Problem is my enthusiasm for lying on my back with oil dripping on my face is rather diminished these days & I’ve long since stopped doing my own servicing on any of our cars. It’s finding someone I can trust to work on the TR & do it properly without breaking the bank but most modern mechanics don’t seem to be interested.
