Triumph TR250 (1967).
Restored to perfection, and in immaculate condition.
The TR250 and TR5 were roadsters built for only 13 months between August 1967 and September 1968. Visually identical to the Michelotti styled TR4, the main differences were under the body. The most significant change from the TR4 was the 2,5 Litre straight six engine, which was carried forward to the TR6. The TR5 had a fuel injected engine, and was destined for the European market, while the identical TR250 had a twin Stromberg carburetor set-up to meet the US emission regulations. In total 8480 examples were made, and it is believed less then 700 cars are still in existence.
This matching numbers car was delivered in Los Angeles in December 1967, in exactly the same colour combination as it is today. The car was imported into Europe in 2005 and nut-and-bolt restored by the late Piet Mozes, a well respected and very experienced restorer. This restoration is completely documented with many photographs which come with the car. Driving this fantastic TR250 is quite an experience. During the restoration, some details were improved to obtain better reliability and driveability. The engine now offers similar performance as its European TR5 sister, and produces a gorgeous sound while doing so. The finish of this car is from a very high level, with good paint and perfect panel gaps. From the underside, it looks as good, and the interior and hood are in the same new condition.
Summary : this a TR250 in better-then-new condition, in a quintessentially British colour combination. A car for the person who only wants the very best. A perfect and reliable classic sportscar ready for long distance tours, combining the timeless looks of the TR4 with the stonking performance of the TR6. The best of both worlds, in the best condition you could ever wish !
