    • 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 in 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 silver example has undergone a full nut and bolt restoration which was completed in 2016 and it has travelled less than 150 miles since. Contained within the history file are invoices pertaining to the restoration. Our vendor informs us that this bike runs really very well and that the original hand pump can be found under the petrol tank. A fully matching numbers example that is supplied with the V5C registration document and many old MoT test certificates, this example is supplied with a dating certificate and recognised by the Tiger Cub Owners Club with its provenance logged in their archive.

    • ModelT20 Tiger Cub
    • FE Cat descBased on the Triumph T15 Terrier 150cc, the 200cc T20 Tiger Cub, designed by Edward Turner and launched in 1953, competed well against the other small capacity motorcycles of the time such as those using Villiers two stroke engines. The earlier version of the Cub used the Terrier's plunger rear suspension frame but, from 1957, this was updated to a more modern pattern of rear swinging-arm with twin suspension units and the ignition points were positioned in a 'distributor' type device on the crankcase behind the cylinder. This delightful Tiger Cub is presented in red over silver with very good chromework and, we are informed, runs beautifully. This example is registered with the Tiger Cub Register and is accompanied by the appropriate dating certificate for both engine and chassis. The engine was recently fully rebuilt and the odometer replaced with a new unit. This bike is supplied with some bills alongside the UK V5 registration document. A lovely example of the very popular T20 ready to enjoy. Guide Price £3,000 - £5,000

    • ModelTR6
    • FE Cat descThe TR6 was introduced in 1968 and was the bestseller of the TR range when production ended in July 1976. The bodywork closely resembled that of the previous model, the Triumph TR5. The design house, Karmann Consultants, squared off the front and back ends to give the TR6 its sharpened look. Fitted with a 2.5 litre, in-line, six-cylinder engine, the TR6 could reach 60mph in just over 8.5 seconds and onto a top speed of 120mph. It featured a four-speed manual transmission with an optional overdrive unit and semi-trailing arm independent rear suspension, 15" wheels and tyres, bucket seats and a full complement of instrumentation. This lovely example of the TR6 is offered in red with black trim and a desirable manual overdrive gearbox, importantly this is a fuel injection model with the CP engine and 150bhp rather than the less powerful carburettor system or later 120bhp CR engine. Our vendor has owned this example for some five years and states that it has never let him down, providing many a joyous weekend drive. Upon reviewing the comprehensive history file, we found the original handbook and stamped service booklet coupled with some original receipts. The history details that in 1988 the car was subject to an engine rebuild at 117,500 miles, this was coupled to a raft of other works since then including a respray in 1987, brake servo and new slave cylinder in 2002, injectors in 2009 and in 2004, the head was converted to unleaded. A genuine, privately owned, honest and useable classic, this TR6 represents fabulous value-for-money motoring and has a great comprehensive history to boot.

    • ModelTR6
    • FE Cat descFrom the birth of the original TR1 of 1952 through to the TR250 of 1968, Triumph Motor Company’s line of TR sports cars were both groundbreaking and commercially successful. Michelotti, the designer of the TR250, was unable to commit to the new project and, in their place, Karmann of West Germany were awarded the contract. Utilising many of the same lines, even body elements such as doors, Karmann focused on improving the aerodynamics of the new TR6, most notably with the inclusion of a Kamm tail to minimize wind resistance. To the sports car enthusiast of the early 1970s, the TR6 offered speed, a throaty engine note, a smooth four-speed gearbox and exceptional road handling housed in a masculine, convertible body. Originally registered on 12th February 1975, this presents in good order throughout. The often troublesome fuel injection system has been removed and it now has fuel delivered to the engine via twin SU carburettors. We are advised by the vendor she runs well with no known faults; these Triumph sports cars are well designed and simple to work on. The six cylinder, 2498cc engines are reliable units and it pulls well through the gears. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with an MoT test certificate valid until 4th March 2020, this fine example is one of only 8,370 UK righthand drive examples manufactured.

    • ModelTR4
    • FE Cat descProduced between 1961 and 1967, the TR4 combined a new, modern and aggressive body design by famed Italian stylist, Giovanni Michelotti with the basic chassis of the previous TR3A. The TR4 also improved passenger comfort with wind-up windows, face-level ventilation and an optional hardtop. The 2138cc engine of the late-production TR3A continued while the 1991cc engine was also made available to buyers who wanted to participate in two litre racing. When equipped with the optional overdrive, the TR4 was good for a top speed of almost 110mph. Today, the four-cylinder TR's are among the easiest of post-war classic sports cars to own and maintain being supported by a multitude of component suppliers and other specialists. This TR4 was one of the many exported to the US and was repatriated to the UK in 1979. The Triumph was, at some stage, converted to righthand drive, clearly she has benefitted from time and investment as this example presents in good order. The red coachwork is in good order as is the black interior. The seats in the car are non-standard however the original seats are available and will be supplied with the car. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 31st July 2020 together with a small number of invoices; these quintessentially British sports cars are very stylish and are great fun to drive.
