1956 Triumph TR2 (**Red)
Last updated Mar 22, 2008
Surprising car despite its age, especially coming shortly after the end of the 2nd World War. Quite heavy but drove well, although a bit suspect on cornering!
Had planned to refurbish the car, but didn't complete this so sold the car after a couple of years. 12 months later, the guy who bought it came to visit and it looked like it just came out of the factory. Was I jealous!
Couldn't find a pic of mine, but just like the photo.
2-seater front-engined convertible
Signal red with tan interior; tan tonneau; black soft-top (never used it)
1991cc straight 4 (originally a tractor engine!), 90bhp
Replaced shot gearbox with TR3 unit +new clutch assembly.
Stripped all bodywork forward of the bulkhead, but never got round to replacing it!
Had new side-screens made up as fed up of getting wet elbows!
