The last variant of the Triumph 2000 / 2500 series made its debut in 1975, the range topping 2500S. The 2500S effectively replaced the 2500TC and the earlier 2.5 PI, using twin carbs, All 2500S come fitted with factory allow wheels and optional Air Conditioning
The TR3 replaced the TR2 in October 1955. Over its lifetime it was uprated to TR3A (1957), the first British car to adopt front disc brakes. Its engine was rated at 100bhp at 5000rpm. A model designated as TR3B was built specifically for the US market.
Two events were held at Wakefield Park on the 23rd and 24th of June 2007. Saturday was a Sprint Race put on by the Austin Healy Owners Club and Sunday was the All Britsh race meeting put on by TSOA NSW. There was also an open practice day on Friday the 22nd.
We understand the passion and sheer emotional attachment motoring enthusiasts have for their special vehicle - even Goggomobils.
When it comes to insurance for your special car, daily drive, bike or your home, there's only one person you should talk to - a fellow enthusiast at Shannons. You can even pay your premium monthly at no additional cost.
The TR5 was launched in October 1967, with a 2498cc 6 cylinder fuel injected engine producing 150bhp. This model remained current for only 15 months and only about 2600 were sold. A rare item indeed. This model is not to be confused with the more numerous TR250, which was a US only market car, with twin carburettors, softer camshaft and lower compression head. A number of imported cars have been converted and occassionally get passed off as genuine TR5's
The TR4 with a dramatically new shape styled by Michelotti, was released in 1961. Its engine is slightly larger than the tr3 at 2138cc, but was still rated at 100bhp at 4700rpm. In 1965, the TR4A was introduced with its main feature being independent rear suspension and engine output of 104bhp.
The Stag was released in September 1970. The body was designed by Micholetti and powered by its own unique Triumph designed 3000cc SOHC V8 that produced 145bhp. All Stags came with a removeable hardtop and foldaway soft top. The Stag V8 convertible was astounding value for money, less than half the cost of its rivals.
My beautiful and much loved Tr6 is regretfully for sale, as I need to reduce my collection through lack of space.
