Footnotes

  • Standard-Triumph's first new model after its takeover by Leyland, the Michelotti-styled Triumph 2000 was launched in 1963. Engine and gearbox were basically those of the Vanguard Six but the unitary construction body and its running gear were all new, the latter featuring independent rear suspension for the first time on a 'big' Triumph. Saloon and estate versions were built, and then in 1968 came the 2.5PI model with Lucas mechanical fuel injection, 132bhp and a 120mph top speed. The restyled Mk2 range with revised front and rear end treatments arrived in 1969. Reliability problems led to the 2.5PI model being phased out in the mid-1970s to be replaced by the twin-carburettor 2500TC and 2500S. Production of Triumph's six-cylinder range ended in 1977, since when they have continued to enjoy an enthusiastic following.

    This overdrive-equipped Triumph 2500TC began its life as a company car, passing to its custodian when he retired. It was subsequently restored for him, being completed in 2002/2003. Purchased by the current vendor 2012, it has since benefited from a reconditioned differential, new clutch master and slave cylinders, and a new battery. Accompanying documentation consists of a Swansea V5C, MoT to March 2014 and 21 previous MoT certificates. At the time of cataloguing the vendor had not found the restoration invoices but it is hoped that these will be located by the time of the sale.
