We have a '63 Triumph Sports 6 that my father in law gave us about 6 years ago, I havent done much on it since I started tearing apart our FJ40, But I hope to start working on it soon. :)
I will scan some pics and post them up.
Have fun :cheers:

I guess I should add a pic of what it should look like

Here are some scans of old photos I took as I was dismantling it.



Its a while ago, This is before we had the FZJ80, Note the truck we sold to buy the 80 :)









I dont have many pic's of the work I did, But I will see what I can find.

Looks like you have a good base from which to start. I'm an old Triumph-head (although the Sport Six is one of the few I have never owned). When I was a kid my mom was co-owner of the Leyland dealership in Niagara Falls. It was at the low-point of BL, and I could tell you some stories........

Looking forward to seeing your build-up!

I owned a 1973 triumph spitfire 1500 for many years...i worked on all BL vehicles for a few years for a company called Britannia on long island.

That was a fun lil car :)

Hey there,
I'm new here and finding my way out!
Since january 2011 i'm the proud owner of a Sports 6 (1964). It is still equiped with the Solex carburators!
I'm searching for a few parts which i cannot get here in Europe...
Can anyone tell me i.e. where to get the "Sports-badge"?

Many greetings,
Marc

Welcome Marc.
That is a fine looking Sports 6, Very solid, I traded my semi down draft Solex for ZS carbs, Honestly I don't believe I have ever seen the Solex air filter.
About the Sport badges, Have you tried Rimmer Bros, or Canley Classics? Thats all I can think of off hand, I'm sure there are plenty of other smaller shops around.
Best of luck.
