Sale type: Fixed price listing
Technical specifications, photos and description:
Driver and passenger wing mirrors. Oil pressure gauge. Water temperature gauge. Crank handle. Column gear shift. Tyre pump. Dash Clock. Dickery Seat.
This Roadster is finished in an incredibly smart coat of Burgundy red. This looks great against the large front chrome grill and on the wide wing extensions. The paint work looks clean and smart from a distance however on close inspection it shows more of an aged patina with some areas that could be tidied up. All the chrome work is in good condition and the car has a lovely classic feel.
The interior is in fine fettle with all the wood work clean and tidy. The large leather bench seat and door cards are in excellent condition with no rips or tears. Sadly the steering wheel is starting to show its 65 years with a couple of cracks and splits. The boot plays host to the Dickery seats. the operation to open this compartment is simple and straight forward however getting in via the step on the rear bumper is a little more tricky. The hood is in good condition and keeps the worst of the weather out.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The four cylinder engine fires up with ease but then needs warming up before anything is asked of it. The column gear shift takes a while to get used to but with some gentle manouvering the car slots into gear nicely.
WHEELS. TYRES & BRAKES
The tyres are in great condition and the car has had replacement shock absorbers. steering arms and a brake overhaul so rides. steers and stops as Triumph intended it too.
The original Triumph 1800 Instruction book is present along with an updated Drivers instruction book produced by the Triumph Roadster Club. The present owner has had the car for over 18 years and the car has only ever had 4 other owners in its 65 year life.
Over the past 18 years the car has been serviced and looked after by an independent local mechanic with experience in classic Triumphs. It has just received a fresh 12 month MOT and is ready to use and enjoy.
