Classics - Austin Healey vs. Triumph TR6
Twee roadsters met zescilinder. Brits. Geboortejaar 1957 versus 1975.
Generaties met botsende karakters; de behoudende fifties tegen de wilde
seventies. Weet de jeugd het weer eens beter? Twee roadsters met een
Nederlandse link vechten het uit op bochtenparadijs Madeira.
The Triumph Motor Company was a British car and motor manufacturing
company. The Triumph marque (trade-name) is owned currently by BMW. The
marque had its origins in 1885 when Siegfried Bettmann (1863--1951) of
Nuremberg initiated S. Bettmann & Co and started importing bicycles from
Europe and selling them with his own trade-name in London. The trade-name
became "Triumph" the year next, and in 1887 Bettmann was joined by a
partner, Moritz (Maurice) Schulte, also from Germany. Beginning in 1889 the
businessmen started producing their own bicycles in Coventry, England.
In November 1944 what was left of the Triumph Motor Company and the Triumph
trade-name were bought by the Standard Motor Company and a subsidiary
"Triumph Motor Company (1945) Limited" was formed with production
transferred to Standard's factory at Canley, on the outskirts of Coventry.
The pre-war Triumph models were not revived and in 1946 a new range of
Triumphs was announced, starting with the Triumph Roadster. The Roadster
had an aluminium body because steel was in short supply and surplus
aluminium from aircraft production was plentiful.
In the early 1950s it was decided to use the Triumph name for sporting cars
and the Standard name for saloons and in 1953 the Triumph TR2 was
initiated, the first of a series that would be produced until 1981.

Triumph GT6 MK3 vintage race car part 1
A tour of the GT6 race car engine bay , part 1. Visit
http://www.austinhealeywood.com/brakelines.html for information on the
copper nickel brake line kits that I mentioned in the video. I will be
adding part 2 of this video next week.
My friend and I built this vintage race car over the course of several
years. It may have been raced in Canada when it was new, but I have very
little information about it's history.
The engine was built to be reliable so that we could sort out the car on
track. It could certainly make more power by increasing the compression
ratio and doing a few other things. It has been very reliable so far. I
drive a street GT6 and I can tell you that there is no comparison between
the stock engine and this one. This engine revs very freely and is still
making power up to the rev limiter (7000 RPM). This is due to all of the
work done on the head, the Exhaust
header and the weber carb setup.
This is Triumph
Like many auto companies, Triumph started out making bicycles but like the
others found a new life in the four wheel world.
Known mainly for its sports cars the company also produced family cars but
it was the roadsters that got the attention.
Unfortunately, the company dissolved along with the rest of British Leyland
and the brand's name is now owned by BMW.
