1968 Triumph TR250 – SOLD

One of our Good Friends has this Fabulous 1968 Triumph TR250 that he has chosen to let go of after Many Years of Prideful Ownership.  I’m quite pleased to be of Service and I’m Excited to help find this Great Sports Car a New Home.  Have a Look at all the Pictures and Please be sure to Read the Total Advertisement, as there are many Important Details Described Herein.

This Particular TR250 has had a Professional Frame Up Restoration Performed by Heritage MotorSport (http://www.britishheritagemotorsports.com/).  The Paint and Body Work Crafted by Dalton & Son Auto Body.  It has been Fitted with a StayFast Cloth Convertible Top and comes with a very nice Tonneau Cover as well.  Scroll down through all the Pictures and Detailed Improvements.

The current owner literally saved this Treasure from Extinction.

His Commitment to the TR250’s Revival is Evident in the Lengths he was willing to go to in Putting it Right.  Here is his story:

“On one fateful day, I picked up the phone and heard my friend at Heritage Motorsports in San Diego say: “ I have a TR250 for you that needs restoration, but before you get too excited you really need to see it.” I had recently completed the restoration of a second TR6 and was looking for a more unique car for my next restoration project.

Early the next morning, I found myself standing in front of a TR250 that was painted a bold spray can blue.  It was clearly in desperate need of help.  A young Naval officer had taken it to Motorsports to get it ‘fixed up’, but when he found out how expensive it was going to be in time and money, he decided to sell.  Thus, began a 5 year, frame up professional restoration effort on what my wife called — the Blue Blunder.   

As you can see from the pictures, it has been transformed into a real ‘Black Beauty’ that is an eye catcher and a joy to drive.  I enjoyed restoring this unique car to the pristine condition that it deserves.  However, it is time once again for me to get involved in another restoration project.  It is my wish to find a new owner for Black Beauty who will cherish its unique style and characteristics as much as I have and who will continue to maintain it as I have in the condition it richly deserves.”

Just a snippet here to Describe some of the work involved:

The TR has had the Frame Stripped, Painted, and Fitted with New Body Mountings.  The Front and Rear Suspension, all Brakes and Bearings, the Drive Shafts and U-Joints Rebuilt or Replaced.  Inside the Interior has had a Complete Restoration and the Convertible Top Upgraded to Heavy Duty Cloth.  Under the Hood the Engine and all Components have been Thoroughly Rebuilt.  The Over-Drive Transmission and the Differential are Rebuilt as well.  Literally every Component has been Meticulously Transformed to as Good as or Better Than what She Was New.
