Triumph Roadster 1800 June 1948 Barn Find Project
A Delightfull mostly original Triumph Roadster that has just been exposed to the full light of day after almost 25 years with its previous owner. Good news here is the fact that this car has been keep in a very good dry dusty building, the prefect environment for preserving any motorcar awaiting a new loving owner to return it to its former glory
For those of you who don't know the body on the Triumph Roadster is all aluminium so no real problems there on this one apart from the odd dent etc, the only steel is the bulbous front wings and I'm pleased to say that again very solid and only really require a bit of dressing etc and there all good to go. Chassis looks fine and the fact that the rear jacking points are still intact is always a good sign on this model
The last owner did make a half attempt at starting the restoration - but thankfully only removed the front bumper and horns etc as shown in the photo. The interior is still largely all intact and untouched , front toe boards removed but all there and the carpets and door cards are with the car. Dashboard has all the correct instruments inplace, and the ignition key still hangs in the switch.
While in storage the engine was carefully removed and reconditioned, crank re-ground new shells ect fitted. Re-bored with all new shiny pistons fitted so a big leg up for when the rebuild is finally started. Gearbox is still in situ with all the linkage still in place and it's the correct column change that Triumph fitted from new
This is definitely a cracking project for the right person, panel fit is really good on this example and the doors tuck in really nicely on both apertures- plus the bonnet wraps round the bulkhead a treat. Being so complete is a big plus for the new owner, and the car is still on its original registration number with both the old buff log book and the new V5c to pass on.
