1968 TRIUMPH TR5 PI
A wonderful opportunity to purchase what can be regarded as one of the very nicest “useable” genuine UK supplied TR5’s on the market.
Even better a car that still retains many of its original features too.
So – This is a UK supplied “matching number” TR5 supplied to you in its original factory colour combination of Royal blue coach work and shadow blue interior!
Previously restored by TRbitz in 2011 to a standard spec including a full mechanical overhaul and body off repaint. The car was then used by the then custodian for 1000 miles before he sadly passed away. The car was then taken into its current ownership where the car has been used as intended covering over 13,000 miles in total since the restoration in 2011.
No expense was spared getting the car to the desired spec! the original engine was removed and put into storage (still now with the car) in favour of a replacement unit to carry out modifications. These included a lightened and balanced crank, lightened flywheel, Carillo connecting rods, forged pistons, gas flowed head and a mild “yellow” piper cam – with this the car also still operates with its original injection system producing roughly 170BHP which can still be easily increased if required. The addition of a pheonix tubular manifold, high output 60amp Alternator, kenlowe fan and rev limiter are also present too. All work was carried out by “Enginuity”
further on from Enginuity’s mechanical work the car was also subjected to a full bare metal respray again in 2017 to an excellent standard including the body being “gapped” to a fantastic standard.
Further spec to this vehicle includes front and rear heated windscreens, rare factory steering wheel, standard TR5 “shadow blue” trim as per factory spec, wheel arch liners/protectors, Minilite wheels fitted with nearly new Michellin XAS tyres and a surrey top with hard and soft tops too!
This is the perfect TR5 to be used for either summer days or European touring along with everything in between and has been built as a fantastic “all rounder”!
