Description

The Property of a Gentleman and Racing Enthusiast
1968 Triumph TR250
Registration no. N/A
Chassis no. CD1856L

The Triumph TR250 was the US version of the TR5, substituting Stromberg carburettors for the TR5's fuel injection in order to meet the more stringent US emissions requirements. This older restored TR250 was imported from the US in 2011 and comes with a host of bills for parts. The engine was rebuilt just prior to being imported, in 2011. The car was taxed in California from 1986-91 and a copy of the US title is present, issued in the state of Oregon. All duties and taxes have been paid but not yet UK registered. The TR250 is running and driving well and is an ideal candidate for either conversion to TR5 specification or use and enjoy as it is, after some tidying up and repainting. Running and driving it will need some recommissioning prior to active use following a period of storage.
