It is always a pleasure to offer a motor car that ticks all of
the desirability boxes and so it is with this TR5 on offer today.
Originally supplied to James Edwards Limited of Cheshire on 9th May
1968. the TR was later sold to a Mr. Donald Tarbet in November 1968
who used the car until 1973 by which time 74. 00 miles had been
accumulated. For reasons upon which may only be speculated; such as
the 1973 fuel crisis (unused fuel vouchers from that period are
still with the TR). the car was laid up for the next 30 years until
it was discovered in 2003 and an extensive professional body-off
restoration was undertaken.

When the restoration began. the body tub was found to be in
mostly good order; any badly corroded and pitted panels were
replaced with genuine Stanpart contemporary items. The chassis was
restored with minor additional strengthening by CTM Engineering
(CTM). The restoration was completed to return the car to its
original 1968 specification as delivered from the factory including
engine detailing but with enhancements for driving and economy on
today's roads. The engine was rebuilt and balanced with
lightened flywheel and the gearbox. final drive and suspension were
also rebuilt. Various upgrades have been incorporated for
comfort. safety and reliability with most of the original items
retained so that the TR may be put back to its factory state at
anytime. These upgrades include Bosch fuel pump and modern PVR. br/>aluminium long range fuel tank. telescopic damper conversion (front
Spax - rear CTM Koni). Kenlow fan. Phoenix six branch exhaust
manifold with sports exhaust system. high torque starter motor. br/>uprated heater. alternator. suspension and brakes. wheel arch
liners by CTM. electronic ignition. oil cooler. leather seats with
headrests (designed for the TR). Mota-Lita steering wheel. painted
wire wheels and a high level LED brake light. Importantly. the
original equipment retained includes the exhaust manifold. steel
disc wheels with Rostyle trims. the rare original steering wheel. br/>lever arm dampers. original seats. alternator and starter
motor.

Presented in its correct and supplied colours of Valencia Blue
with white screens and hardtop. this UK righthand drive supplied
and registered TR also comes with the British Motor Industry
Heritage Trust Certificate confirming that this is a matching
engine/chassis number motor car with its original equipment of fuel
injected 2. 5 litre engine. overdrive. hard top (with removable hard
top factory supplied in white and soft centre section with frame)
and heater! In addition. the history file contains the
original green log book which confirms that the last keeper
recorded on it is also recorded on the current V5 registration
document. being the previous keeper to the current owner;
therefore. there are three recorded keepers in total. The TR was
built to be used regularly throughout the year on international
tours and covers approximately 2-3. 00 miles annually. Its high
standard and reliability were confirmed on a recent test by
performing and handling exceptionally well and receiving comments
such as "the best TR5 I've experienced" from the tester.

Featured in the editorial on the front cover of Classic Cars
magazine in February 2009. this. the most desirable of the
Michelotti TRs. is today certainly testament to the standard of the
restoration completed nearly 10 years ago and is offered with a
most tempting estimate.
