Despatched from the factory on the 8th October 1954. LCY 315 is a genuine RHD UK car. delivered new to Nortons. Main Triumph Dealers.   Finished in its original Triumph Signal Red as stated on the records of The Standard Motor Company Limited.

Last owner since 1988 and restored by him a professional mechanic to the most superb standard in 2003. Underside is as good as the top.   With lots of upgrades as follows:-

Balanced and tuned engine with a fast road cam. TT valve springs with larger valves. unleaded cylinder head. lightened flywheel. stainless steel sports exhaust with 4 branch manifold fitted with Thermo-tec exhaust wrap. TR4A inlet manifold with HS6 carbs and uprated electric fuel pump with cut off.   Uprated clutch assembly. J-type overdrive. Crank. rods. pistons etc all fully balanced.   Kenlow thermostatic fan fitted with manual overide. expansion tank. high torque starter and alternator conversion.   Steering converted to rack and pinion (Rimmer conversion) and polly bushed suspension. Disc brakes fitted up front and servo assisted. fitted Goodridge aero-equipe braided hoses with silicon fluid and a fly off handbrake. Alloy Minilite wheels booted with nearly new Goodyear tyres.

Sports seats also fitted with radio speakers built in to the headrests. original seat frames come with the car which we were going to put back in until we drove it. Can guarantee you will stick with the sports seats. you sit in them not on them and look through the windscreen not over it. Leather bound Moto-Lita steering wheel. wind deflectors. New hood just fitted by Aldridge Trimming also has new side screens later type with sliding perspex windows. tonneau and hood cover. Comes with mini amp to connect up to your Mp3 player.   Very little use since full chassis up rebuild.   Only fault. fuel gauge is intermittent. worst scenario would be a new gauge.

Superb example to go historic rallying in or a short runs down to the pub! Goodwood. Le Mans etc

Would cost a lot of money to replicate this car. Viewings welcome but go and look at all the others first. then you'll realise just how lovely this car is.
