History of the 1966-1973 Triumph GT6 and Suzzie

The talented Italian stylist Giovanni Michelotti was essentially Triumph’s house designer in the early 1960s. The Spitfire 4 of 1963 was a particularly nice effort on his part, far prettier than the big TR sports cars that he also penned. When the Standard Triumph works competition team fitted an aerodynamic hard top to the car for a highly successful campaign at the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans, the marketing people began to think about adding a neat little coupe to the Spitfire line.

The resulting coupe was indeed neat (looking a great deal like a 2/3-scale E-type) but the tiny Spitfire four-cylinder rendered the car woefully underpowered. Triumph substituted the smooth little 2.0-liter six from the Vitesse and thus a fairly refined little GT was born.

I have looked after “Suzzie” since 2004 when I purchased her from my son. Since then she has had a bare metal respray (in late 2013) a new the interior 2014 (as you can also see from the pics) She comes with a British Motor Museum Heritage Certificate. She has a no-water coolant system (no antifreeze/rust problems!) Kenlow fan plus under bonnet air ducting (no overheating problems!) plus electronic ignition (no starting problems!) Twin pipe stainless exhaust system which sounds marvellous! She just passed 28,000 miles this weekend, I am based in Redhill, Surrey.

She is truly a poor man’s E Type Jaguar!
