1968 Triumph TR5 PI - Rare Jasmine Yellow - Excellent Example for sale
Current customer rating: (144 votes) based on
Perhaps the most collectable TR. the short-lived TR5 was a happy accident resulting from Triumph's failure to ready the tooling for the new TR6 body in time. Yet combining the pretty TR4A body with the lusty 150bhp 2. 5-litre fuel injected six for just one year created what for many is the ultimate TR. The combination of their low production numbers (just 1161 UK RHD made) and their desirability make the TR5 a difficult car to find.
Our TR5 has had just four owners from new in 1968 and is remarkably original. Rather than many which have been allowed to deteriorate then subject to a ‘nut and bolt' restoration. this car has simply been maintained and improved as required by its four long-term owners. It is finished in its original and highly unusual Jasmine Yellow with black vinyl interior and retains its original rostyle wheel trims – again unusual.
The body wears older paint that is still smart and presentable. The interior is. with the exception of new carpets and a wood-rim steering wheel. original and in very good order. The hood is the original vinyl type and is free from damage. The chrome is all in excellent condition.
Most recently this TR5 has been subject to substantial mechanical refurbishment with marque specialists. TRGB. Revington TR and TR Bitz. at great expense. The clutch. gearbox. overdrive. prop shaft and differential were replaced. The rear hubs were renewed. The suspension was slightly lowered and uprated with new springs. GAZ dampers and polyurethane bushes. along with solid mounts for the steering rack. The brakes were completely rebuilt with new parts. The radiator was replaced along with all coolant hoses. a high-torque starter was fitted along with electronic ignition. an oil cooler and electric fan. The injection metering unit has just been reconditioned along with a Bosch pump conversion. All four tyres are new. The list goes on…
The result is a car that's very well sorted and absolutely fabulous to drive with superb handling. A perfect TR5 for someone who wants to use it as intended.
