1948 Triumph 2000This Elegant and very complete early-build (#240) 1948 TR2000 is one of 2,000 produced in 1948/49, of which approximately 100 reside stateside. A truely unique car with rumble seat that has it's own built in windscreen. Purchased by the current owner while in London in 1984. Originally black with red interior.
Repainted in metallic green, it now shows some imperfections on the rear fenders due to poor paint prepping on the right side and a minor accident on the LR fender. The interior door panels, carpet, and seats are in nice shape and the canvas soft top was recently installed. Underlying wood body tub is solid,fiberglass front fenders replace the original steel and the remainder of the body, hood, doors, trunk, etc. are original aluminum in excellent condition. There are no visible signs of rust or corrosion. Due to several years' lack of use, the car is in need of brake workbut has great potential for someone with mechanical skills. A re-paint would also go a long way to making this car stunning again.
Mechanically, the trafficators are operational and the electricals, clutch, transmission, (3 spd column shift) battery and exhaust are good working order.Chrome is very good, and the interior is extremely clean but the wood dash could use some refinishing. The car retains a callback to its original state, found in the red leather jump seats - untouched from 1948. It also has wide whitewall, bias ply tires in great shape with original Triumph hub caps.
The original engine runs exceptionally well, sporting a rare factory rebuild plate indicating .020" over on both crank and bore, completed on June 9, 1957. Overall, a very complete car needing very little to get back on the road. Several spares parts come with the car including the original air filter housing.
Pre-purchase inspection and test drives available by appointment. Please call Clarke at 603-587-0577. The car is located in southern New Hampshire and is being sold with a clear title. See our other offerings at HistoricMotorSports.net
