This Triumph Tr8 is a beautiful car.
As you can see from the photos there has been extensive
restoration work done on this vehicle.
I acquired this vehicle from a gentleman who owned a major car dealership. All the work was done by the body shop and mechanics that worked for him. I purchased this vehicle already restored by professionals.
Here are some upgrades that were done : Fully Rebuilt Factory Rover V8 Top to bottom done mostly stock
with a mild cam. Edelbrock 500 Carb Kit with Offenhauser Intake Manifold. A Mallory Distributor with
electronic ignition also installed. An electric fan assembly was also installed with temp control set at 180.
The fan also is set to remain on after the car is off to maintain a perfect temperature in the engine bay.
The entire front end was rebuilt with new tie rods ball joints and struts
The rear has new shocks also
New tires with very few miles on them
A new exhaust was also added. From manifolds back.true duals with performance mufflers. Sounds Fantastic
Aftermarket gauges were added prior to me buying the car. I have purchased an all original dash cluster that
will come with the car.
The paint is absolutely stunning. This was professionaly painted and properly baked in a state of the art
body shop.
The interior was replaced with new seat covers and foams. New carpet and panel kits.
It has a very tasteful kenwood sound system with CD Aux Am FM sounds great
The convertible top is also new. There are no signs of wear on it. It's in perfect shape.
The entire brake system was also completely redone. As was clutch, slave cylinder and master
There are only a couple of things that don't work on the car:
The fuel guage is not working. It has power so I'm assuming a new sending unit is needed.
The turn signal switch you will have to hold up sometimes taking a right turn.
Other than that, all lights, horn, etc are in working order
The undercarriage of this car is in very nice shape being a Unibody Triumph
There are no holes or patches on the floors. It is very solid. A couple spots of surface rust and scaling.
Very solid. The body is laser straight and I could not find any heavy abuse of bondo or fillers. Panels are all
solid steel.
This Triumph runs beautifully and shifts nicely,. It does not leak a drop of anything guaranteed.
The fan belt is new. However is squeaks sometimes on start up.
All glass including windshield are new and flawless. Roll up cranks and hardware new. The mirrors
are also new
I have many parts spares that go with this car. Including all relays, extra switches, extra original untouched
dash. I have an extra dash that is also perfect like the one in the car. A mint center console
Extra headlights and motors. A set of excellent front and rear original black bumpers if you don't like the perfectly painted look :)
And numerous other spares I'm forgetting about.
I planned on keeping this car forever, so I purchased many spares and extras to have on hand.
Unfortunately, between the wife work and kids. I only get to drive her once a week or less.
Don't miss this opportunity to own a rare car that is only increasing in value rapidly.
This is a No Reserve auction and I will start the bidding at a very low $6,000
