1968 Triumph TR250

Code named `Zest'. the TR4 was introduced in 1961 as a replacement for the TR3A. Though based on the chassis and drivetrain of its much-loved predecessor. it cut a far more modern dash. thanks to an all new Michelotti-styled body. Other mechanical updates included a wider track front and rear. rack and pinion steering and an all-synchromesh gearbox. The short-lived. but now much sought after. TR5 was visually identical to the TR4. but notably more potent thanks to the 2498cc straight-six that sat in place of the TR4's four-cylinder unit – a total of just 2. 47 TR5s left the factory between October 1967 and November 1968. Built over an almost identical period. the TR250 was effectively a TR5 for the American market. whose engine was fed by a pair of Zenith-Stromberg carburettors in place of the TR5's fuel injection system. With 111bhp on tap. the model could achieve the 0-60mph sprint in 10. 6 seconds.
