1977 Triumph 2500TC saloon (S) SOLD

Not for sale - it has been sold via a Car and Classic Free Ad
Manual, overdrive and PAS, 77,000 miles, large (and expensive!) history file, everything works, excellent condition, serviced, unleaded conversion. Will be sold with a full MoT and valeted inside and out.

After another summer in which I have failed to use this car as much as I had promised myself,I have decided to sell it and buy a smaller classic for my local pottering.

I purchasesd the car 6 years ago from a Triumph enthusiast who had had it for 24 years and only 10,000 miles. He had treated it to a bare metal respray in the original russet and the paintwork remains really good with a deep shine.

The Triumph needed some work in order to recommission it properly:

- new engine mounting rubbers
- 2 track rod ends
- rotor arm
- new brake hoses
- distributor cap
- fan belt
- a ball joint
- steering bulkhead kit.

The original nylon interior had suffered badly from the effects of the sun. I tried hard to find indenitical fabric in which to have it retrimmed but failed. I therefore had the seats recovered in a toning velour of better quality than the original fabric and piped in brown. The new fabric is light in colour but heavily treated with stain repellant which is effective.

I have had several modifications carried out to make the car more suitable for modern roads:

- rear inertia seat belts
- halogen headlights
- electronic ignition to make the best of the straight six
- thermostatic fan - you can be confident in summer traffic jams

The car was running rich and this was attributed to poorly maintained SU carburettors which were refurbished with new needles and floats. As this work was done, it was found that the rich running had caused the head to become coked so this was removed, cleaned, skimmed and converted to run on unleaded with new valve guides. While the head was off, the bores were inspected by stroboscope and found to be in good condition.

Sundry work has included:

- petrol pipe
- pedal rubbers
- flasher unit
- temperature sensor
- thermostat and housing
- replacement clock
- a small older welding repair which had been done badly redone properly
- clutch slave cylinder replaced and master cylinder rebuilt


Bad points are:

- an area of bubbling about the size of a 2p on the o/s/f wheel-arch
- some glue staining (suspect caused by heat) to the headlining around the rear screen and on the - pillars with a small tear on one of the latter
- the wheeltrims would look better if the matt black paint were redone.

You would need to be within 2 feet of the car and looking or inside it to notice these things though.

Happy to discuss the car outside office hours. Please leave a message and I shall get back to you.
