One Triumph leads to another
How wonderfully simple it can all be. Sunshine, full tank of fuel and a snappy road. That's all it takes. At the end of the 1960s, Triumph came to the conclusion that the end of the TR5 was nigh. The car had only been in production for one year and was not achieving the results they had hoped for. The reason? The design. That is why the English car maker changed designers. Michelotti had to make way for the German Karmann and a year later the design was complete. And it did well! One of the most successful and best-loved British roadsters ever.
Under the skin the car has many similarities with the TR5 and that was a good choice. Because, under the skin, this was already a fantastic car. A ladder chassis and a 6 in line with camshafts underneath.
However, the previous owner thought that this car could do with a bit more sugar in the tea. The engine was tickled with K&N sports filters and Koni shock absorbers were fitted. The result is a real driver's car as it should be! Without fuss. Can we see you soon?
