1968 Triumph TR250 US North America delivered in September 1968.

Last known owner prior to the current owner was an individual in Phoenix Arizona.

that Title is dated from November 2001.

The purchase includes the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust  Certificate.

 

The current  owner acquired the car in July of 2011 and embarked on a 4 ½ year extensive and very detailed  frame off restoration.   Close attention to detail and accuracy was given this build with the help of the current owners other low mileage unrestored. unmolested survivor TR250 being used as a reference car.

 

The virtually rust free body was hand stripped and media blasted and all sheet metal was repaired and refitted to the tub.   Great care was given to insure all panels and gaps were sharp and straight.  A period correct aluminum Surrey back lite with glass window and steel center section was fitted and includes a mohair canvas surrey. All surfaces were than sealed. primed than painted with correct single stage Valencia Blue enamel.   All trim and body rubbers are as new. stainless fender beads are new and properly painted. all chrome parts have been re-chromed.

 

All system components  throughout  are new or painstakingly rebuilt. nbsp; wiper motor. steering column. Heater and blower. and so on.

 

Interior is leather faced seats and wool carpet from John Skinner in the UK.

Wood dash was re-skinned and crash pads replaced with new. Original steering wheel included along with the Moto-Lita  steering wheel currently installed.

 

The engine was dismantled checked for clearances . cleaned . RP rod and head bolts installed with new gaskets and seals . All engine components are standard size. oil pressure  (75 cold 30 hot )and compression ( 160 Psi. ). A 150 HP cam shaft with new lifters was installed at the time.   Car is equipped with the correct A-Type electric overdrive.

 

The frame was sand blasted and refinished with black frame paint. all suspension components are new or rebuilt. Springs are Richard Good lower and higher ratio to give the car a (in my opinion better stance) adjustable trailing arm brackets were used to correct rear wheel geometry .   New steering rack and uprated front spindles along with all new front suspension bushings new ball joints and trunnions.

Wheels are a reproduction of the dealer option American Racing Silverstones

The redline tires were returned to vendor due to balancing issues and a set of 205 65R 15 black wall tires were installed.

 

There are more photographs of the restoration for the asking and a file folder full of receipts . The current owner will assist with shipping and also important to note . because the car was imported from the USA it is a fairly simpler process to reimport  the car back to the US.
