1972 Triumph 2500 PI 2.5 pi from Australia and New Zealand
A car that was built 25 years ahead of its time
Fuel pump & metering unit needed reconditioning not long after buying the car.
All half shaft universals needed replacing.
Front diff seal leaking.
Note all above problems due to lack of servicing by previous owner, as the car was parked up for 3 years.
Replaced worn front and rear windscreen rubbers.
Now that I have restored the car back to as near as new condition as possible, I find that it drives and handles as good as any modern car I have driven.
Fuel economy is great, with the overdrive gearbox returning 33 mpg on a trip cruising at 110 kph.
Performance and seating comfort are its best two features. Not many cars that I can't pass on the hills, including V8's, and boy they don't like that.
I have a top sound system in the car, but prefer to listen to the sweet note from the engine, especially under acceleration.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
