Episode 1 - 1971 Triumph GT6 Rebuild - Fanatik Motorsports
Episode ONE of this new journey! In case you missed the Trailer Video for
this restoration, Fanatik Motorsports is a new side to this channel that
will be focused on full sized vehicles. It will NOT in any way be
replacing my normal RC based videos! Read more...
This is my father's 1971 Triumph GT6 Mk3. Only 13,042 Mark 3's were ever
produced, and this '71 model is claimed to be the best of the last years of
the GT6. In '72 and '73 more emissions regulations led to decreased
performance and ultimately the demise of the car.
Only half of the 13,042 Mk3's produced were imported to North America, with
an even smaller percentage making their way up to Canada, were I live.
This was the only GT6 available within a 600km range of where we live, so
although it's in rough shape, it's what we had available. It will be a
beautiful runner when we're done though!
It has a 2L inline 6 cylinder engine that, when new, made about 110bhp.
Doesn't sound like much, but the whole car only weighs 2030lbs. Almost
exactly the same power to weight ratio of the C1 Corvette! Impressive!
The straight 6 has a lovely purr, plenty of low end grunt, and it's dual
Stromberg Carbs provide quick throttle response... at least in the small
amount of driving we did in it!
The previous owner was hoping to put the car back onto the road, and so
were we. However, after starting to take it apart it was obvious it needed
a full restoration. We cut out the drivers floor panel near the beginning
of the restoration because we thought that those two panels were all that
really needed replacement, but in the end we're going to have to replace a
LOT of metal on the car.
The chassis will be restored first, and after that the body-shell.
Stay tuned for updates, and take care!
