1955 Triumph TR2 - Fully Rebuilt, UK car, Matching Numbers For Sale

We are delighted once again to offer this exceptional, correct car back onto market having spent the past 12 months with one of our Nottinghamshire based long term regular customers. This is a very rare opportunity to purchase a first class, fully rebuilt Triumph TR2 that has covered in the region of 1500 miles since a complete nut and bolt restoration in 2014. There is no doubt this TR has show winning potential and also boasts huge provenance being a genuine UK car with matching numbers, original registration mark that has been restored with photo record to original specification including interior and exterior colours. The car VAF 344 has absolute true provenance being completely correct and it is no doubt better than the day it left the factory.

This outstanding vehicle was restored by a restoration expert with a keen eye for detail. Many years ago we sold the best MG Midget we had ever seen, restored by the same owner and this car was also restored to a totally original specification. This MG has gone on to win multiple show winning events and since restoring the MG, a Triumph GT6 was restored and has since featured in magazines with the quality of restoration being one of the main focuses of the article. The results of this long term TR2 rebuild are impressive and the entire restoration has been done to a very high standard.

VAF 344 was registered new in Cornwall and an initial rebuild in the South West began well over thirty years ago. It was not completed or put back on the road and several years ago was purchased by the restorer. Everything on this car was either restored or replaced by new items. The car is totally original and it resembles the car as it left the factory and has a totally exceptional, immaculate underside. It has overdrive on 2nd, 3rd and 4th, has a heater and is re-trimmed in half leather. It retains positive earth and the colour is Signal Red with Matador Red interior with matching wool carpets. All chrome is either new or re-chromed and a new hood and new windscreen have been purchased. The engine has been stripped down and piston rings and main bearings replaced, a new oil pump has been fitted and the timing chain replaced. New parts include a fuel pump, water pump, dynamo, restored distributor, rebuilt carburettors, control box, fuse box, wiring loom, solenoid, master and slave cylinders, heater matrix, dash instruments, all lights and many more. There is a photographic record of the work and a comprehensive invoice file.

The last two owners are very well known to us and the car has proven faultless on the road since its full restoration. Prior to being sold by us in 2018, several hundred faultless miles were covered with its Yorkshire Dales based previous owner and in 2017 the car won 1st place at the Cumbria Classic Car Show. VAF 344 is top class order in every respect and there's no doubt this is a unique opportunity to purchase a standard specification, matching numbers original RHD car in as new condition. We would expect a restoration to this standard could cost in excess of £60,000 therefore representing an excellent opportunity.
