1968 Triumph TR5
Indulge in the allure of classic motoring with the 1968 Triumph TR5.
Step into a timeless era of British craftsmanship with the 1968 Triumph TR5. This original UK Right Hand Drive car is a true gem, boasting impeccable credentials. With all matching numbers and accompanied by the original Heritage Certificate and Green log book confirming it's 3 previous owners, this TR5 carries a rich history that adds to its allure.
Meticulously maintained and cherished, this Triumph TR5 stands out as a remarkable example even among seasoned professionals. It's current owner is an ex-team driver and tester of Triumphs, and they confidently attest that this is the finest specimen they have ever encountered.
The TR5 is not just a masterpiece of design; it was mechanically ahead of it's time. Triumph, the manufacturer, replaced their previous 105 bhp (78 kW) engine with a groundbreaking Lucas mechanical fuel-injected 150 bhp (110 kW) 2.5-litre straight-6 engine. This innovation was revolutionary in its time, as fuel injection was rare in road cars.
In fact, Triumph proudly claimed in their sales brochure that this TR5 was the "First British production sports car with petrol injection."
Owning the TR5 is not just a testament to your taste but also to your appreciation for rarity. Unlike its successors, the TR5 was produced in limited numbers, with just 2,947 units manufactured between 29 August 1967 and 19 September 1968.
Out of these, a mere 1,161 were intended for the UK market, while the rest found their way to the continent, enriching the streets of France, Belgium, Germany, and other countries with its unique presence.
A comprehensive total body off nut and bolt restoration, with a staggering investment of approximately £24,000, has breathed new life into this classic beauty. Every aspect has been meticulously addressed, from a bare metal respray that showcases its timeless Old English White exterior to a brand new interior that exudes elegance and sophistication.
But the transformation doesn't stop there. The engine and gearbox have been painstakingly rebuilt to ensure optimal performance and reliability. Revel in the glimmer of all-new chrome accents, including a striking set of chrome wire wheels that perfectly complement the TR5's iconic design.
Adorned with a Black interior piped in White, this TR5 exudes a sense of refinement and taste. The new mohair hood, with removable rear windscreen, adds a touch of sophistication, completing the picture of motoring perfection. With new tyres and a valid MOT until March 2024, this Triumph TR5 is ready to hit the open road and provide countless miles of sheer driving pleasure.
This Triumph TR5 comes complete with a full lever arch file of paperwork, including detailed records of MOTs and tax discs. It's a testament to the care and attention this vehicle has received, providing you with peace of mind and transparency.
