1949 Triumph 2000 Roadster

Registration Number: 435YUX

Restored beautifully over a 15 year period by a fastidious owner with some useful modern upgrades included.  This Triumph Roadster ie resplendent in pale metallic Blue with the paint being pristine & having been the winner of various prizes.

To the interior is medium blue leather with blue carpets.  All woodwork has been removed & refinished to show standards.  A new Dark blue Mohair hood has also been installed.  The usual twin dickey seats are also in blue leather in the fold out boot area which also contains a brand new spare tyre.

This Triumph is a serious performer compared to a standard car as it has a TR4a engine fitted running on a pair of twin choke Webber caburettors.  The car was taken to the engineering shop of an F1 engineer & converted to hydraulic disc brakes to give it stopping power to match the engine.  At the same time a brand new old stock gear box was sourced & fitted.  Since then the car has covered around  5000 trouble free miles.  The car has a high torque starter motor, alternator conversion, eletrical distributor, Kenlow fan, custom master cylinder, & alloy rocker box along with a full stainless steel exhaust.  A new Differential was also fitted as was a new steering box.

Needless to say the car looks & goes far better then when new easily able to run in modern traffic.  It is being sold due to the recent passing of the late owner.  The upgrades make this a very very useable classic & it is indeed a pleasure to drive.  A modern sound system is discreetly tucked away in the drives side glove box.  This car was a labor of love for the last owner allowing the next owner to benefit from his amazing attention to detail.
