This genuine factory built Triumph TR8 Convertible is a very rare car.
It is one of only approximately 2725 cars built mainly for the USA market.
Of these cars, the later majority were fitted with fuel injection whereas this rarer early car was specified with twin Zenith-Stromberg carburettors.
Early in its life, its USA owners replaced the standard carburettors and inlet manifold with a single Holley carburettor mated to an Offenhauser manifold but fortunately they retained all the old parts and they are still with the car so the original carburettors and manifold can be re-fitted if required.
It was repatriated back to the UK in 2015 where it has been part of a collection.
The documentation file contains the original USA invoice and specification list, a copy of the USA Pennsylvania Certificate of Title, the current UK V5 log book, the current MOT, the original handbooks, various TR8 information booklets along with numerous invoices for parts fitted and work completed over the years.
The current MOT runs until February 2020 and the genuine recorded mileage is 59480.
This car is of true collector quality and needs to be seen in the flesh to be appreciated.
