  • Price changes over the past 1 - 1 and 1/2 Years

    In July of 2019 I was actively looking for a 1969 TR6 with overdrive that was fully restored. I found one for about 30K. Back then that was considered to be about right (I think it sold in auction for even more). Are there resources available that I could use to help me find out what prices are like now? Of course if anyone has bought recently that would be good information too.

    Bring a Trailer is handy. Of course EBay but there seems to be a lot of dealers peddling crap. YMMV. Hard to say what things are actually selling for aside from those two places

      As Todd mentions, Bring a Trailer can be a good resource...if you are not familiar with the site, you can do a search for Triumph TR6 and it will show you previous sales on a graph...if you want to view a particular sale on the graph, you can click on it to view the car and the details.

      Cheers,

        Hi thanks very much. I had forgotten about this. It is exactly what I was looking for. It appears that a 1969 or 1970 for about $30 should get an excellent car that has been thoroughly restored from the chassis up. I have not checked each one that sold, but the one I was interested in a while ago that had undergone a very extensive restoration sold for about 30K. I should have picked it when when it was about $25K :-(

          Yes I think when we visited this topic back in 19, you were after a 69. You didn’t Jump. Now the prices have risen substantially for a nice car. That car I told you about B4 it went on BAT would’ve sold substantially cheaper than the BAT sale of 30k which looking at all the upgrades was undervalued.

          Are you ready to Jump now?

            Short answer to your question. In the next 4 weeks, I will make up my mind. I have a couple of things to work through, then I should be able to make a decision.

            You are correct, I spoke with the gentleman before he put it on BAT. He had done a lot of wonderful upgrades, some, like the Toyota parts where not to my liking, but I suppose I could have always changed them out. The issue was, and is, spending that much on a TR6 means I drive an old car for my daily driver instead of taking the money for a TR6 and putting that into a new car. Just a question of balance, I have to make up my mind and 'just do it'. For some reason, I would feel more comfortable if there were more TR6 owners around me but living in NM, there are just not many people :-)


            I would add that the prices since 2019 for the 1969-1970s seem to have drifted about about 10% just eyeballing the chart. Not a lot more or less than that.

              A 1969 that looked pretty good (except for the color) just went for 22,800. There is hope (on the other hand, a 74 went for 55k in December):

                76 went for 75 just before that. That Jasmine 69 was a steal considering all the completed work, but ya gotta like Jasmine. That was an awesome buy.

                  A newly restored 6 with o/d and all the important updates should be in the $30k range.I know that I would not consider anything less and the hardtop isn't even done yet.

                    Yeah they’ve gone up. Here’s the link to BAT https://bringatrailer.com/triumph/tr6/ a few on there now. To me BAT is a great place to sell, not buy. Always good to buy directly from owner to avoid a mark up. Hagerty also has a pretty decent valuation tool.

                      Thanks everyone. I also checked the Hagerty guide. I think 30k is just about where I want. Not Concours but still above excellent.

                        I did not dig into the details of the $75k sale but that seems way out of line. Almost twice what Hagerty suggests for a concourse example.

                          Welcome to BAT, people with Money to spare get into battles over a car and the seller benefits. Logic need not apply. That’s why I said, good place to sell, not buy.

                            Thanks. I understand this may take some time to get what I want once I pull the trigger. Piggott shows production TR6 figures on 253 of his book, but I can't quite make sense of it. Even if I could, I can not tell what percent of the Carb versions also had OD and what percent of those were in Damask Red :-)

                              There were less 69s built than TR250s so in one sense they’re rarer. I doubt you’ll get production numbers broken down by color and OD vs non. Triumph didn’t keep great records. If a car was a CKD (complete knock down) there would be little info on it. In theory you could order any color you wanted (black comes to mind).
