1968 TRIUMPH TR5 BEST AVAILABLE – £69,950
Following on from the highly successful and stunningly good looking Tr4 the fuel-injected Tr5 was only in production for 13 months before the mass-produced Tr6 replaced it.
Total Uk cars built were around 1100 units so they have become highly sought after and rare collector’s items during the past few years.
This beautiful Valencia blue from a new car with tan was delivered to the UK in September 1968, complete with overdrive and heater.
There are only three registered keepers and an excellent history file including old buff log book, very rare service book, mots and a comprehensive photo library of the complete restoration.
The original steel wheels, hubcaps and steering wheel are included.
A complete body-off restoration including mechanical rebuilds was completed around 2011 and the quality of workmanship was clearly very high as she still presents beautifully today.
She has received ongoing maintenance as necessary having only covered around 4,000 miles since complete the work and looks resplendent with the tan seats contrasting well with the blue paint.
The standard of restoration is superior to most TR5S and she would certainly compete with the best at any concours event.
These cars are great drivers cars with nearly 150 bhp and 900 kgs they are quick and the overdrive really provides flexible and comfortable cruising speeds, enabling long trips to be covered with ease.
On the road, this one is a very strong driver, very well set up with a great soundtrack from the exhaust and abundant power from the 150bhp engine.
Supplied fully inspected, serviced with 12 months warranty.
