|By 1968 the TR range was becoming quite old fashioned especially as its closest rival MG had a more modern “chassis less” model that was|
cheaper and produced easily in much greater numbers.
So by 1968 Triumph began to move onto the 6 cylinder TR5 and 6 models finally ending the 16 year production of 4 cylinder engines.
This beautiful UK supplied always rhd example is one of the last produced and has only had 4 owners the last but one for 31 years and has enjoyed ongoing maintenance and a thorough restoration in the 1980s including mechanical work then hardly used since.
The quality of the work was obviously to a high standard as the car is still in great condition today with very good paintwork and chassis.
She is fitted with wire wheels,overdrive, with the all important IRS rear axle.
There is a comprehensive history file with many specialist dealers having worked on her during the past 20 years and a photo record of the restoration.
More recent work includes under bonnet detailing ,new wire wheels,hood,bumper rechrome etc.
On the road this is a throaty raw car with a good solid robust feel to it and performance is very good the overdrive providing an easy cruising speed.
She is a quintessential British sports-car that can only appreciate in value and must be one of the nicest available.
Supplied fully inspected, serviced and with a 12 month warranty.
