  • Gt6

    Not sure how many here are interested, but I began a GT6 project this week.

            Wonderful! I was just thinking that I was ready for another season of the ed_h show.

            You decided on a colour for the GT6 yet? Or staying with jasmine (is that what it is?)

                    Thanks, guys. I took a couple of months off, and it feels good to be wrenching again.

                    I haven't settled on a color yet, Keith, but it probably won't be Jasmine.

                        Ok, i've got my giant bowl of popcorn ready. I love the lines of the GT6, and despite the dirt and critters, this looks like a cleaner project than the TR6 was. Looking forward to your updates!

                          In 1963 Triumph commissioned Giovanni Michelotti to design the Gt6, based on the Spitfire.

                          MkI was produced 7/1966- 9/68 15,818 units;
                          MkII 7/68-12/70 12,066 units;
                          MkIII 10/70-12-73 13,042 units.

                          In 1965 a Spitfire took 13th overall at 24 hours of Le Mans & 1st in Class (beating MG Midget),
                          so the Gt6 was advertised as being derived from Le Mans winning Triumph.

                          Being as the Gt6 has a Six Cylinder engine, & it is a Triumph--- it/they should be warmly welcomed into the 6-Pack Family.
