1968 Triumph TR250 Roadster

For consignment, a car originally from south Florida and garage kept for the past 37 years. It has a number of upgrades for performance and reliability and presents an exciting opportunity to purchase a well-sorted British roadster for some open-air enjoyment!

The body was taken down to bare metal and Valencia Blue, a factory color, was applied. It\'s a fantastic shade of dark blue/green and our car has an added silver nose stripe that lends contrast and picks up nicely on the metal parts of the car. The chrome bumpers are in good condition with noticeable specks, and we love how the rear bumper wraps around the entire stretch of the rear quarter panels. The metal rocker panel along with the fender-mounted side mirrors, trim and other brightwork are in very good condition. TR250 emblems appear on the hood as well as the trunk, where a Union Jack flag and \"Triumph\" emblem also reside. A nickel-colored gas cap is magnetic, taken from the Triumph truck line in 1968. The black canvas convertible top is in near flawless condition and the three rear plastic windows are clear. 15-inch Konig wheels with their argent gray spokes and polished rim look fantastic. We note some imperfections in paint including scratches, chips, spider cracks.

Barley colored seats from a 1972 TR6 are covered in vinyl, the color and pattern of which is repeated on the door cards. It\'s a nice upgrade that blends well with the tan carpet that is protected by black mats. The three spoke steering wheel is black and foam-based and leads to a beautifully stained wood dashboard. The speedometer and tachometer are large and simple while a cluster of four small gauges sit in the center of the dash. A pod of square control knobs is under the cluster and the ignition is there as well along with an aftermarket AM/FM/CD head unit that falls just below that. The shifter is floor mounted in a molded plastic shroud and the parking brake is perched on the center hump between the seats. The rear shelf behind the seats is carpeted and occupied by a large speaker unit. The trunk holds the spare tire and a shelf with a black, carpeted cover.

The original 2.5 liter inline six is at home in the bay and fed petrol by 2 SU carburetors that regulate the fuel through piston-controlled venturis. Pertronix electronic ignition provides the spark and a gear reduction starter turns the engine. A 4-speed manual transmission gets her in gear and a Nissan 3.60 differential lives in the back where power is transferred to the rear wheels. A TR6 wiper motor is another upgrade to the mechanics of the car. The engine bay is spectacular, just gleaming and colorful and a lovely showcase of the inline six. Disc brakes live up front, drums in the rear. Many of the original parts including transmission, differential, starter, wheels, and tires come with the car to the new owner.

A rust-free bottom is a welcome sight and all looks jolly good under here. A single exhaust trails along the frame into a stock style muffler that sends out two tailpipes for that twin tip goodness! Both ends have independent suspension with coil springs up front and trailing arms and coil springs out back. 215/65/15\'s are on all four corners.

British reliability is always the butt of jokes but with some nice upgrades, this car is going to buck the trend. It started right up and once warmed up a bit, we shifted into gear and took a lap around our test loop. The car did not disappoint, rated at 104 horsepower, but feeling like a bit more than that, the car leaped into action and rolled through the gearbox with ease. The ride is pleasant for a sports car that is 56 years old! The brakes worked as expected and before we knew it, it was time to return the spry little foxhound back to the

This is a beautifully appointed Brit that has been well maintained and fitted with some tasteful upgrades. As a bonus if you want to go back to bone stock configuration, the parts to do that will be included at no extra cost! British sports cars are the benchmark and really the origins of the world\'s best sports cars. This is one example that has many more \"smiles per gallon\" in her tank!
