Description
 
The pre-war Triumph register estimate that from a total production of some 117 of this model, just 17 are known to survive of which only 11 retain their original bodywork. This totally original example which would appear never to have been restored is estimated to have been off the road for at least 40 years. Still fitted with its original 1232cc Coventry Climax engine and 'freewheel' gearbox, this rare 75 year old was registered new in Devon and there it has stayed apart from a brief 3 year interlude in South Wales. The original Exeter registration number BFJ 54 remains with the car and it is fitted with an original (presumably from new) Weathershield period sunroof. It requires full restoration- mechanicals/body/paint/interior trim. However, everything is there and has not been 'improved' by anyone in the past. The aluminium panels which form the upper part of the bodyshell have been stripped of paint and are in a good state of preservation whilst the chassis appears sound with only surface rust evident. Alternatively, it could be made into an interesting open Gloria Special of which several exist and are also sanctioned by the club. As regards price, whilst this company is against the removal of any original number plate from a classic car, the market for private plates appealing to wealthy egos is a fact of life. Therefore the car's value should also reflect the inherent value of the number plate which it is strongly recommended be left on this car! *Please note* The price is firm- non-negotiable.
