1966 Triumph 2000 2.0 petrol from UK and Ireland
Pensioner's Hot Rod
Starter motor shook itself loose due to traveling at excessive speed.
Wiper motor failed.
Rusty wheel arches needed replacing.
This belonged to a friend of a friend and had been sitting in his garden in Brighton for at least 2 years. It was covered in mildew and the interior stank of rotting flesh.
I paid him £150 for it, put a new battery in, a new set of HT leads, and a bit of air in the tyres and drove it 150 miles back home without incident.
I then added a big single exhaust, some carb upgrades, electronic ignition and had the head skimmed. As a result of this it became very quick for a 1966 Automatic. It was hilarious to drive and sounded great.
Easy to work on, easy to upgrade. Highly recommended, plus the Mark 1 had far superior sheet metal and finish.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
