While the roadsters tend to get all of the love, the we've always liked the GT-6 with its somewhat awkward DB-5 meets XK-E styling. This one has received a "full restoration" and has some nice upgrades that could make for a fun driver.
This 1970 Triumph GT-6 received a restoration at MotoCancelli (formerly PRI) and has seen less than 1,000 miles since completion. MotoCancelli has some mixed reviews in the Triumph community, but the consensus is there is good work coming out of it, if perhaps not the best customer service.
There aren't a lot of specifics as to what was entailed in the restoration (paint, bodywork, etc.) but the upgrades are what intrigue us. A "stage 2" engine upgrade is comprised of dual Mikuni carbs and a custom header / exhaust system. We'd like to know what the numbers at the wheels are HP-wise as the claimed 165 seems quite high based on the upgrades and the stock rating at about 110 HP.
Not worrying about specific HP numbers though, a 5-speed Ford transmission has been fitted to allow for a higher top speed and we like that the original shifter pattern has been retained. Wilwood discs were fitted all around, and the suspension has been upgraded to an independent rear with coilovers up front.
Minilite-ish wheels look good with fresh Yokohama rubber if perhaps a bit awkward at this size. Irregardless, the whole setup makes us wonder what class this would qualify for / be competitive in for some weekend racing.
Though the public didn't agree, and we don't have any alliances in the MG - Triumph hostilities, we've always prefered this sporty coupe to its MGB competitors.
