This vehicle was recently the subject of a long term full body off restoration and has been extensively developed from the original factory specification for improved reliability and driveability whilst retaining the essential character of a forty-three year old classic.
Engine - Triumph two litre straight six engine with worked cylinder head, performance camshaft, Lucas mechanical injection system with earlier CP inlet manifolds, Megajolt programmable ignition system, hight torque starter.
Custom exhaust system with 6-3-1 manifold, splitting again under the car to two pipes to a one off silencer that looks very similar to the original, but allows the engine the breathe properly without excessive noise, allowing you to take part in track days without supplementary silencers.
Engine has covered approx 22,000 miles since being rebuilt, gearbox and clutch have covered less.
I had planned to build up a fully balanced bottom end for further performance, parts for this are available at cost under separate negotiation, including NOS crank, Vandervell bearings and new pistons.
Cooling system - uprated with modern alloy radiator, alloy waterpump housing, electric fan, swirl pot and header tank
Fuel system - uses a low pressure pump Facet to a swirl pot that feeds the Lucas pump, pumps have dedicated fuses and relays to reduce current drop. This setup has operated faultlessly even when sat in hot traffic.
Drivetrain and suspension - Four speed gearbox with the desirable optional overdrive operating on 3rd and 4th gears. Uprated mainshaft using later single rail gearsets in an early three rail case for added strength.
Engine and gearbox moved six inches back in the chassis to aid weight distribution
3.63:1 differential at rear with Jones/Bowler CV conversion utilising modern bearing packs for rear wheels. Larger M12 wheel studs. Alloy wheels made by 100+ were refurbished April 2009 and is a complete set of five wheels.
Adjustable AVO shocks at front, Koni on rear. 3/4" front anti-roll bar with rose jointed ends
Polybushes fitted throughout suspension components.
Interior - Electronic programmable speedo, modern fuse and relay box in glovebox, re-veneered dash, Mazda RX7 seats replace the originals for improved comfort on longer journeys.
Body and chassis – During 2011 the chassis was shot blasted and painted using Rust Bullet Black shell. The bodyshell was replaced with another that I had previously stripped of paint and had the left rear wing and inner wheel arch replaced prior to painting. The underside was also bare metalled and coated with Rust Bullet. Both chassis and body have been regularly treated with dynax S50 anti-corrosion cavity wax for increased protection against rust.
Following an accident a new bonnet assembly, front cross-member, radiator and front bumper was fitted November 2013
This is a very well modified car which, whilst perhaps not for the originality purist will have strong appeal as a striking and highly useable classic. There are extensive photos available of the restoration process.
I would consider a part exchange for a Triumph TR6.
