Immortalised in the long-running British detective series Bergerac, the Triumph 1800 Roadster was one of the most recognisable early post-war cars of its period.
Triumph entered the growing "executive" market in 1963 with its new model, the Triumph 2000. The Triumph 2000 used an all new unitary body which was powered by a six cylinder 1998cc engine shared with the established Standard Vanguard range. Independent suspension and front disc brakes ensured that the 2000 had excellent road manners which gave the car a "sports saloon" feel expected of Triumph.
The 2000 featured a well appointed interior complete with wood veneer door cappings and dashboard which made the car a comfortable car in which to travel.
The example on offer here boasts a comprehensive restoration, which was only completed
