Following on from the highly successful and stunningly good looking Italian styled 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 stunning Old English white example was UK spec built RHD with original colour, overdrive and is matching nos with a Heritage certificate.
A complete body-off restoration was completed around 20 years ago by a well-respected restorer and the quality of workmanship was clearly very high as she still presents beautifully today.
The brief was to produce the most original spec TR5 utilising the original parts as much as possible but with a reliable engine and gearbox.
The attention to panel fit and underside/ paintwork standards was high on the agenda and she is amongst the best I have seen.
There are very subtle upgrades for improved reliability, electronic ignition, electric cooling fan, Bosch fuel pump.
There are two comprehensive history files inc the restoration.
These cars are great drivers cars and this one with nearly 165 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 engine.
