1976 Triumph Other for sale
Rare 1976 Triumph TR 7 hardtop coupe. Complete restoration of a solid car about seven years ago and has seen very little use since. 65K actual miles. I bought this in hope to use it as a daily driver and work on it at the same time. Although it is titled. registered and insured I have actually driven it very little. I just do not have the time I thought I would have. I have just too many projects and need to let some go for now so I can finish others. I am sure I will regret selling this when the others are done or gone. It starts up and drives needs a good tune up with wires. cap. etc. maybe even a good carb cleaning. Although the more I drive it the better it runs.
I do have some history on the car during it restoration. There is quite a bit documentation that was left in the car when I acquired it. This is what I know:
It has a rebuilt 1979 Buick even fire 231ci (3. 8 Liter) V6. There is a Elderbrock Performance Power package installed (Camshaft. Lifters. Timing gear. Valve Springs. Intake Manifold). There is also a Holly 600 cfm carburetor and custom on off air cleaner that fits under the stock hood. Ignition appears to be a stock HEI unit. The radiator is new along with all hoses. Factory cast iron exhaust manifolds were used and it has a complete dual exhaust out the rear with a “H” pipe installed. This combination should make around 190HP with a weight around 2300 lbs.
Someone made the effort to retain the A/C in this car. It has the factory GM compressor. dual electric fans. and is plumbed up properly to the Triumph in dash system. It also has great heater and defroster.
The transmission is a GM Turbo Hydro 350 and it also appears to have been rebuilt when installed during it restoration. A shortened driveshaft and a heavy duty TR8 (3:08 gear)rear differential with a sway bar. Although that gear sound a tall but consider the tires are only 22” tall. The TR8 diff also had the lager rear brakes. Wheels are rare 13 X 7 panos with new 185/70 tires.
This car has a completely new braking system including. Master cylinder. booster. proportion valve. all brake lines. rotors. calibers. drums. pads. New rack and pinion and struts. New windshield. hood. trunk and door gaskets. Front and rear suspension. bushings and hardware. New relays. horns. bulbs and wiring throughout. New interior and trunk carpet with extra sound deadening. Included are the factory spare. Jack. lug wrench. There is also a rare hard to find factory front spoiler installed.
Interior is also pretty nice for a 41 year old car. Seats appear to have been redone and dash is in excellent shape with all gauges working properly. Turn signals. brake. and headlights work. Although the flip up mechanism seemed to be new or rebuilt. the only open and will not close on there own.
All the hard work has already been done and money spent to make a great driver out this car. It just needs the some to finish the small details and paint. Paint is faded on the roof. hood and trunk. There is no rust on this car and floors and trunk are solid.
