Marc Shiliro's Classic Cars
You're looking at another beautiful classic car listed by MS CLASSIC CARS!
1976 Triumph TR6 Convertible w/ 5,600 original miles. "The Holy Grail"
Hello, I’m Marc Schiliro the owner of MS CLASSIC CARS.  You might recognize my name or my business name from beautiful classic cars, trucks and motorcycles I’ve collected and sold nationally.  I’ve got over 20 years of classic vehicle experience.  I’d like to put that experience to work for you.  I’ve learned a lot and I’m educated in many different makes and models ranging from the early 1900’s to current.  Over the years I’ve collected and sold over 400 classic vehicles which I’m very proud of.  I sell a large percentage of my inventory from networking and from the various websites I advertise on.  I sell a small percentage of my inventory at various auctions such as Barrett Jackson.  I’ve set over 15 world record prices on various makes and models.  I’ve also featured many classic vehicles at different auctions across the United States. I’ve had many vehicles that have been featured in multiple magazines and multiple websites.  I specialize in beautiful classic vehicles that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I collect classic vehicles that are already completed and slightly redesign them, service them and detail them. I have also coordinated restorations from start to finish.
The MS CLASSIC CARS showroom is located in Seekonk, Massachusetts and was established in 2012.  The MS CLASSIC CARS service department and multiple storage facilities are also located in Seekonk, Massachusetts.  The MS CLASSIC CARS operations are closed to the public.  A private viewing of a vehicle can be made scheduled by appointment Monday through Friday.  The MS CLASSIC CARS inventory consists of roughly 40 classic cars and trucks that we own, service and detail.  We’re one of the only dealerships who document the service work we do to every vehicle with an invoice.  Each vehicle is presented with detailed descriptions and multiple photos.  We offer no consignment inventory.  When you call you deal directly with me. I know each vehicle well and will go over the vehicle of your interest in full detail.  I’ll also assist you with any other needs such as trades, financing, insurance or shipping.  I promise to make the process from start to finish easy and enjoyable.  I take a lot of pride in my business and my reputation reflects that.  I appreciate the opportunity to earn your business.  “MS CLASSIC CARS isn’t just another dealer.  MS CLASSIC CARS is a brand.”

I've been collecting classic cars and trucks for over 15 years now and have seen a lot happen. I've seen the hobby continue to grow not only on the internet and auctions but also with the amount of television shows, magazines and websites that are related to classic cars in some form or another. I strongly believe the classic car market is a great place to invest in. When the economy is strong, the classic car market is extremely strong. When the economy isn't so strong the classic car market holds its own. I've sold classic cars and trucks in both economic conditions. The reason classic cars make such a great investment is because people are crazy about cars, especially classic cars.  These people aren’t just one age group but all different ages ranging from very young to very old.  It’s a much diversified market.  I've learned it's not just people in the United States but its people all over the world.  Roughly 20% of my sales are from people who live outside of the United States.  Some examples would be Canada, Australia, Mexico and Europe.  Also from what I’ve learned roughly 20% of bidders at auctions are also  people who live outside the United States. 

  Over the years I've noticed that the higher quality classic cars have always commanded a higher price. Even people who don't have any classic car experience can recognize and appreciate attention to detail. Over the last 10 years the overall market has been very strong and I believe it will continue to grow.  Certain classic cars prices are on the rise and others are on the decline.  It’s all about supply and demand not about a good or bad economy.  The classic cars that are on the rise are the cars that a lot of people want but there aren’t many on the market for sale.  The classic cars that are on the decline are the cars that a lot of people don’t want anymore and there’s many on the market for sale. Of course, if the car is a rare model and spectacular it will command a higher price as I mentioned. Desirable factory correct classic cars that are documented with matching numbers always make solid investments.  Custom cars have remained strong because each car is different from the next one. They each have their own character and there worth what people are willing to pay.

  Prior to this business I was just a blue collar guy who was working full time selling new and used Mercedes Benz.  I was very passionate about classic cars and trucks so I decided to sell them part time.  Although I had my used car dealer’s license I didn’t have my own dealership.  Overall things were going just fine but my dream was to open my own classic car and truck dealership.  I decided to give up my full time job with health insurance and a 401K to open a new classic and truck dealership.  I had to invest a ton of money to make that happen which required using my family’s savings and acquiring loans such as a home equity line of credit.  I also now would have a lot of overhead that I didn’t have before.  The bottom line is I went all in.  Do you think I would’ve done all that if I didn’t think the classic car and truck market wasn’t going to remain strong?  “I’m putting my money where my mouth is”.

Marc Schiliro the owner of MS CLASSIC CARS contacted the original owner’s wife Patricia Kasper to learn about James J. Kasper and the 1976 Triumph TR6 he owned for a better part of his life. This is what he learned; James J. Kasper was an automobile enthusiast who worked as a traveling salesman for a furniture company. His wife Patricia Kasper was a school teacher. When the Triumph TR6 was introduced in 1968, James had his eye on them. He loved the idea of a British 2-door convertible sports car. When he heard that the Triumph TR6 model was going to be discontinued in 1976, he made the decision to get one. He purchased it from Sainato Motors, Inc which was roughly 20 miles from his house in Struthers, Ohio. On June 24th, 1976 he took the car to Youngstown Auto-Truck Rustproofing for Ziebart Rustproofing treatment. The Ziebart yellow tabs were placed in the door jams, on the backside of the hood, inside trunk compartment corners and engine compartment. The Ziebart rustproofing was applied in the engine compartment and on the entire undercarriage. Shortly after he and his wife moved to Poland, Ohio. His feeling was one day the car was going to be very collectable and valuable. With that being said, he would handle this car with the best of care and only take it out a few times a year. The car was always garaged and it was never driven in bad weather.  He wouldn’t let Patricia drive the car but he always appreciated her company when he drove it. He always serviced the car at reputable service facilities. Since the car was driven so sparingly most of the service work was oil changes and tune up related items. Unfortunately, James passed and Patricia decided to sell his collection of miscellaneous items at an “Outstanding Collectibles Auction” by Basinger Auction Services. The auction advertised this car as a “1976 Triumph TR6 Convertible, one owner, with 3,703 original miles, Carmine Red w/black convertible top and seats, unrestored in original showroom condition.” Some other items in the collection included a 2002 Harley Davidson XL 1200 Custom Sportster motorcycle with 420 original miles, original car owners’ manuals, new car brochures, African trophy taxidermy head mounts, stickley sconces, books, toys, crocks, primitives, railroad memorabilia, furniture and musical instruments. The auction took place on March 27th, 2010. The 1976 Triumph TR6 Convertible was sold to a gentleman who lived in Maryland. This gentleman had the car immediately serviced. The service invoice indicated 3,788 miles at the time of service. He joined “The Vintage Triumph Register”. His car was featured in “The Vintage Triumph” December 2010 magazine. The magazine article explained about the history of his 1976 Triumph TR6 Convertible and his acquisition. They referred to it as “The Holy Grail”. The auction advertisement, auction bill of sale, letter from “The Vintage Triumph Register” and “The Vintage Triumph” magazine are included. This gentleman owned this car for over ten years and drove the car a total of 1,831 miles before selling it to MS CLASSIC CARS in August of 2020.

The original exterior of this car is in absolutely beautiful condition especially considering the car is 44 years old. Matter of fact it’s actually nicer than most of the restored Triumph TR6s on the market. The body is in beautiful condition with a limited amount of minor chips. It’s free of any dents or scratches. Since the hood, doors and trunk lid have never been off the car they operate like they did when the car was new. The original factory Carmine Red paint has been detailed to a brilliant shine. The paint was tested by MS CLASSIC CARS with an electronic paint meter which resulted in 100% original factory paint. Finding a vehicle from this generation with original paint in this condition is unheard of. The paint is complemented with the original black convertible top which is in great condition. The top fits like a glove and operates easily when putting it up or down. The front windshield and side glass is in great original condition with the factory stamps. Everything on the exterior is original and in great condition such as the rubber moldings and seals, window trim, door handles, luggage rack, lights, lenses, bumpers and decals. It still retains the original dealership sticker on the back panel. The car still sits on the original 15” steel wheels and Michelin-X redline tires. The wheel numbers are as follows:  5.5JX15x6, 311243, K5A and 981 which decode as 1976 Triumph TR6 wheels. The tires numbers are as follows: FHTJ A8NX465 which decode with a production date of the 46th week of 1975. This car not only retains the factory original paint but also the factory original tires! A video demonstrating the electric paint meter readings and any imperfections is presented within the listing photo gallery. The tonneau cover and convertible top cover are included with the sale.

The original interior of this car is also in absolutely beautiful condition especially considering the car is 44 years old. Matter of fact it’s actually nicer than most of the restored Triumph TR6’s on the market. The black interior is super crisp with virtually no signs of wear. The dash pad, walnut dashboard, dash hardware, gauges, steering wheel, console, shifter, e-brake handle, door panels, door hardware, seats, seat belts, carpeting and rubber floor mats are in great condition. The photos of under the dash, under the carpeting and under the seats clearly demonstrate the condition of this original interior. The original Ziebart stickers and a service sticker are still on the driver’s door. The original factory vehicle production plate with commission number, paint code and trim code and black emission control sticker are still on the driver’s door jam. The original factory vehicle production plate is in great condition. The original insulation is under the carpeting on both the driver’s side and passenger side. The original red floors under the insulation are in beautiful condition. The original factory chalk marks are under both the drivers and passenger seats. Everything in the interior is in working order including the glove box light. The original trunk compartment is also in absolutely beautiful condition. It retains the original carpeted trunk mat, full size spare and tools.

The original engine compartment is very clean throughout. The backside of the hood still retains the original yellow factory emissions control sticker. The Ziebert yellow tabs are also on the back side of the hood and edge of inner fenders. It was treated to Ziebart Rustproofing which was sprayed on the firewall, inner fenders and radiator support. When the Ziebert Rustproofing was being applied some of the overspray went on the engine block which is still visible. The yellow original Ziebart sticker is still on the inner fender. The car is powered by the original matching numbers 2.5L 6-cyclinder engine that runs excellent. The engine stamp number 43335 matches the engine number on the original factory window sticker. The window sticker reads 152 cubic inch displacement, two single barrel carburetors, manual 4-speed transmission non-catalyst, 2750 LB. test weight, 3.7 axle ratio. The engine compartment retains many of its original parts. When this vehicle was serviced it was mostly for oil changes and tune ups. Nothing in the engine compartment has been restored. It’s all original as seen. From the service invoices dated 1976-2005 some of the items serviced or over the years include the radiator cap, heater cable, heater valve, carburetors, valve cover gasket, oil/filter, spark plugs, rebuilt clutch master cylinder and multiple batteries.

The undercarriage is very clean throughout. Everything was completely sprayed with Ziebart Rustproofing when the car was new to prevent rust. You can still clearly see some of the original red floors which are in beautiful condition. When the car was purchased by the second owner in 2010 with 3,788 original miles the following service work was completed; new wheel cylinders, rear brake shoes, brake hoses, rebuild clutch master cylinder, snap on piece for the convertible top and change all fluids. It’s believed that everything else is original underneath the car including the exhaust system. There are no service invoices that show anything else was ever replaced. This car is the real deal in every sense of the word.

There is something to be said about an original car that’s never been taken apart. It’s only original once!


***MS CLASSIC CARS purchases beautiful classic vehicles that we’ve serviced and detailed unlike most classic vehicles that are currently being advertised for sale. This is normally documented with an invoice pictured below. With this particular car we decided not to service it since everything is in working order and it runs great. We were contemplating pulling the engine and giving the engine bay a cosmetic restoration but decided to leave it original. MS CLASSIC CARS invested $600.00 in detailing the vehicle from top to bottom. We’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking. ***

Unfortunately most classic vehicles that are being advertised for sale by dealers, private parties and auctions aren't exactly what are being advertised for sale.  This is an industry with no real guidelines and everyone's opinion is completely different.  The average consumer doesn’t realize classic vehicles weren’t restored at the factory and are being restored by people in their garages.  Everyone’s level of restoration experience is different and it shows in the restoration.  An example would be a classic vehicle that's  being advertised as an original model with matching numbers could be a phony with a reproduction trim tag and re stamped numbers on the engine block, etc.  Another example would be a classic vehicle is being advertised as a full restoration when indeed only a few things have been restored.  There are many classic vehicles listed for sale that have cosmetic and mechanical issues with such items as the body, paint, glass, lights, body hinges, gauges, window components, steering components, upholstery, engine leaks and tuning, radiators, transmission, rear end, brake components and suspension components.  The consumers are spending thousands of dollars repairing the classic vehicles they've purchased after the sale.  A bad purchase could turn into the buyer’s worst nightmare and be extremely costly!

MS CLASSIC CARS specializes in beautiful classic cars and trucks that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I personally have selected these vehicles and take pride in what I represent.  I'm not a classic car dealer who is only looking to make a quick buck.  I’ve seen dealers and private parties purchase classic vehicles at auctions and online and immediately list them for sale.  Most of these vehicles aren’t being advertised correctly and haven’t been serviced or detailed.  This business is my career and reputation which means everything to me.  I do the best of my ability to represent quality classic cars and advertise them honestly.  To be clear I’m not in the restoration business.  I represent classic vehicles that have already been restored.

  This vehicle is owned by MS CLASSIC CARS and is located in Seekonk, MA.  I personally have seen, touched and driven this vehicle.  This vehicle has been through a service and detail process which is documented with an MS CLASSIC CARS invoice.  I write the descriptions, take the photos, advertise them for sale and answer all the calls and emails.  I'll personally go over the entire vehicle and tell you everything I know about it.  I'll also give you my opinion if it’s truly the right vehicle for you. I’ll consider all trades and also offer financing if necessary.   Once you've committed to purchase a classic vehicle from MS CLASSIC CARS, I’ll make it a very easy process from start to finish.  Once the funds have cleared I'll immediately mail the paperwork USPS 2-day air.  A CD with the description and photos of the vehicle you purchased will be included in the package.  I’ll also assist in shipping your vehicle to its new home.

         If you've read the introduction tab or visited my website you’ll probably agree I'm a bit of a perfectionist and represent very detailed classic vehicles. MS CLASSIC CARS has a great reputation and we continue to raise the bar in the classic car and truck world.  I sell our classic cars and trucks very quickly because consumers see the value.  I look forward to working with you.  Please read my website testimonials and eBay positive feedback.  Thank you for the opportunity!
