1973 Triumph TR-6 V8 Swap 6.6 liter

Yeah, we know, there’s no such thing as British Racing Red.

This TR-6 is relabeled TR-“six-point-six,” get it? That’s 6.6 liters, Einstein.

Looks like a pretty nice swap. a 400 cube SBC fits under the hood, which is unfortunately topped with a cowl-induction style hump, but it’s not as tall as some we’ve seen. Five speed stick, and a “Corvette rear,” probably just the center diff grafted on to the TR suspension and axles.

The video featured a craptastic rhythm section for the first 3:20, but then there’s a short section where the car sounds, well, pretty nice. For under Twenty-four grand, it’s worth checking out. Find it in Chicago here on eBay.
