1968 Triumph TR250 --

One of the rarest and most collectible Triumphs is the TR250. These combine the classic Giovanni Michelotti design of the TR4 with six cylinder power and independent rear suspension of the TR6. To many collectors, the TR250 (called TR5 in the U.K.) represents the high point of Triumph sports cars. Unfortunately, these cars were prone to rust, particularly in the rear section of the frame. As time goes on, it becomes more difficult to find a good solid car like the one here. The body is very s...traight and solid. The frame is in great shape without any rust issues as evidenced by the photos. Since these photos were taken, our shop has undertaken correcting a few cosmetic faults. We've sandblasted and painted the hood on top and bottom. We're detailing and painting the engine bay. We'll be painting the original silver TR250 fender and hood stripes as well. A small paint chip on the boot lid will also be addressed. The improvements are nearing completion and we'll be posting new photos soon. In the interior, we're replacing the lower dash pad below the instruments as the current one has a gouge visible in the photos We're also installing a new steering wheel. Otherwise, interior is quite decent overall with seats, carpets, and door panels all in good order. The dash wood is in very nice shape with no delamination as is often the case. The top is a correct canvas top and in good shape. Mechanically, the is equipped currently with two Weber downdraft carburetors but we're replacing those with a pair of rebuilt original Strombergs. If the buyer prefers, we'll include the dual Weber setup. The brightwork remains presentable as well. Both front and rear bumpers are straight and shiny. The front fender marker light chrome is good and while the taillight housings have some very light pitting on the chrome. This car runs strongly, with no smoke, very good oil pressure, normal temp range, and good brakes and steering. All the electrical works as it should. Overall, this car will make a fun driver that you can enjoy from the outset with no work needed. For more information contact Mike Buchanan at 877-795-1747 or email to
