    • ModelT20 Tiger Cub
    • FE Cat descIntroduced in March 1954, the Triumph T20 Tiger Cub was a snip at £127, a little over half the price of its big brother, the 650cc Triumph 6T Thunderbird. This attractive four stroke 199cc bike, with its instantly recognisable exhaust note, was Triumph’s answer to the popular but smokey, two stroke BSA Bantam. Built at Triumph’s factory at Meriden and with a top speed approaching 70mph, the Cub won many admirers selling over 110,000 units in the 15 years of its production. You will have to travel far and wide to find a better example of this popular model. This great-looking blue and orange example has been fully restored to near concours condition and comes with invoices totalling over £6,250. Supplied with the original registration document, this pristine example is not only tax and MoT test certificate exempt but is has been recognised by the Tiger Cub Owners Club with its provenance logged in their archive.

    • ModelTR6
    • FE Cat descThe Triumph TR6 was manufactured for seven years from 1969 and by the time production came to an end in July 1976, it was the best-seller of the TR range. The bodywork closely resembled that of the previous model, the Triumph TR5, but the front and rear were squared off and all TR6s featured inline six-cylinder engines. For the US market, the engine was fitted with carburettors whilst, for other world markets including the UK, the TR6 was fitted with fuel-injection. It featured a four-speed manual gearbox, independent rear suspension, rack and pinion steering, 15" wheels and tyres, pile carpet on the floors and boot, bucket seats and a full complement of instruments. In total 94,619 TR6s were built of which 86,249 were sold overseas and only 8,370 were sold in the UK. This TR6 was repatriated to the UK in March 2018 and has undergone extensive restoration work. At the time of writing, the restoration is close to completion and includes a conversion to righthand drive. We are informed by the vendor this Triumph starts and runs well. The maroon coachwork is complemented by cream interior and to be expected, she is fitted with carburettors. This matching numbers TR6 is supplied with a V5C registration document and a Heritage Certificate.

    • ModelTR3 Convertible
    • FE Cat descThe TR3 was a huge success for Triumph, mainly because it had a large two litre engine installed into a body that weighed very little. The result was that, for a reasonable price, it could comfortably keep up with the 100mph performance offered by MG and Jaguar. In 1957, the TR3 was replaced by an updated version, the TR3A although the upgrades were largely cosmetic. Presented from a collection owned by a man with his eye on quality, this charming, baby blue example has clearly been well restored back in his home country, South Africa. Owned since 2008, we are informed that it has been serviced regularly and little used as shown by the odometer. It is kept in a heated garage with a number of other precious examples and, given the obvious quality, inside and out, represents excellent value for money.

    • ModelTR4A IRS
    • FE Cat descGiovanni Michelotti was one of the foremost designers of the time and his artistry shows with the TR4A. The addition of chrome accents and the natural flow from the subtle bulge of the headlights all the way to the rear end is beautifully proportioned. The TR4A had power to match as well; the 2.2 litre engine was good for 110mph and when equipped, in 1965 onwards, with independent rear suspension (IRS), provided exceptional rear-wheel camber control with excellent wheel travel while softer springs thus vastly improving the ride quality. As a side note, during the Sebring 12 Hours in 1966, three IRS-equipped TR4As achieved a remarkable 1-2-3 class victory. Proof positive I think you will agree. The excellent example here today was originally white according to the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate but was latterly painted Carmine Red in 2017. Prior to this, ongoing works have taken place according to requirements. New polished stainless steel bumpers were also fitted in 2017 and before that an overdrive was installed in 2012 with the rear differential rebuilt incorporating the correct ratios for the unit. Chrome wire wheels with spinners and shod with new Vredestein tyres, including the spare. The hood is a new Double Duck example complete with hoodbag and the steering wheel has been upgraded to a dished, wood-rimed Moto-Lita one. The overall condition, especially the paintwork, is excellent. You may be able to find a fault with this motorcar but I couldn’t and I would be extremely happy to own it. Offered without reserve.

    • ModelTR6
    • FE Cat descDUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, THIS LOT HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN FROM THE AUCTION To modernise the Triumph TR5 that had evolved from the Michelotti designed TR4, Triumph looked to produce a new modern body. Triumph commissioned Karmann of Germany but the task was difficult as Karmann had to produce a new body style whilst retaining much of the original structure. The re-style included a new nose, wings and a new tail. The result was the 'Kamm' tailed TR6 and was produced between 1969 and 1976. The home market TR6 initially produced 150bhp but was later detuned to 125bhp. Due to their greater power output, the early models are sought after amongst the Triumph enthusiasts. This particular example was purchased by the present owner in April 1984 and he has cherished it ever since. Accompanying the car is a substantial history file containing photos of the extensive work carried out over the years, in particular are the invoices from Racetorations totalling £26,343 for the many upgrades which were carried out in 2006. Some of these included the fitting of a Quaife limited slip differential, triple 45DCOE Weber carburettors installed and much more. Presented in black with a black interior and white piping, the owner also had a new mohair hood (also in black) made and fitted some years ago. This car has also had Minilite wheels fitted and a half roll cage installed in the rear. The throaty six cylinder engine sounds glorious through its twin stainless steel exhaust system and priced sensibly, this is a great opportunity to own a wonderful British classic which is so much fun to drive.

    • ModelSpitfire Le Mans Recreation
    • FE Cat descTriumph ran three racing Spitfires during the 1964 and 1965 Le Mans 24 Hours race, they considered entering a six-cylinder Spitfire for the 1966 event under the F.I.A. Appendix J category after Porsche, in the same class, were found to be attaining 160mph. The six-cylinder Spitfire was to be called the GT6R and was to run with either fuel injection or with triple carburettors. The 175bhp was confidently expected to give an estimated top speed of 160mph, however, the 1966 proposed regulations meant that the car would have to run in the prototype category where it would certainly have been uncompetitive. With this and financial strains upon Triumph, the competitions programme at Triumph was run down and the project was abandoned. This extraordinary recreation of that Le Mans six-cylinder car was constructed on a 1963 Triumph Spitfire chassis, using all composite bodywork and including a fabulous specification. Its registration number echoes the period competition Spitfires who wore the ADU number plates. This Spitfire has an enormous specification and includes a 2.0 litre straight six Triumph engine with a Peter Burgess head, Le Mans oil filter, a Type 9 close ratio five-speed gearbox and a Quaife limited slip differential with triple 40 DCOE Dell’Orto carburettors supply the fuel. The braking system has Lockheed four pot calipers and ventilated discs at the front with GT6 drums at the rear. There is also an adjustable biased twin circuit, as per the original prototype. The suspension includes aluminium hubs whilst at the rear, CV driveshafts and an aluminium lower wishbone conversion stop the infamous Spitfire rear wheel tuck under. Gaz adjustable shock absorbers are fitted on all four corners. The interior is fitted with a half roll cage and F.I.A. four point harnesses with bucket seats. We are informed that on the road the car is stunning to drive with the powerful six-cylinder engine delivering power low-down, but it is not until the revs reach 4,000rpm that this fabulous car takes on another life. With the CV jointed driveshafts and lower wishbones, handling is exceptional and corners can be taken with the utmost confidence. ADU 5A is UK registered as a 1963 Triumph Spitfire Sports with its 2000cc engine capacity also recorded upon the V5C registration document. The car comes with an extensive history file which includes an current MoT test certificate valid until January 2020. The car has been a regular presence at many events including three times at the Le Mans Classic, during which it was driven and signed by Claude Dubois, the Triumph ‘Works’ driver who co-drove ADU 3B in 1965. During 2018, ADU 5A was viewed and the roof signed by five times winner of Le Mans, Derek Bell. ADU 5A certainly reflects the spirit of the 1960’s Triumph racing cars and represents a fabulous tribute to a bygone age of Le Mans motor racing.

In total 94,619 TR6s were manufactured of which 86,249 were sold overseas and only 8,370 were sold in the UK. The bodywork closely resembled that of the previous model, the TR5, but the front and rear were squared off and all TR6s featured inline six-cylinder engines. For the U.S. market, the engine was fitted with carburettors. The TR6 featured a four-speed manual transmission and an optional equipment overdrive unit was a desirable feature because it gave drivers close-gearing for spirited driving whilst remaining an excellent touring car for open motorways. It also featured independent rear suspension, rack and pinion steering, 15" wheels and tyres, pile carpet on the floors and boot, bucket seats and a full complement of instrumentation. Braking was provided by disc brakes at the front and rear drum brakes. This TR6 was imported into the U.K. in 1995 and immediately underwent a substantial restoration. This included the fitting of new front wings and a full repaint. The engine started immediately when requested and ran smoothly with no adverse noises. Used sparingly of late and still in good order throughout, this TR6 is finished in green with beige interior. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a full years MoT test certificate, this lefthand drive British built sportscar has been owned by the same family for 24 years.
