1968 Triumph TR5 PI - UK Car, Superb History For Sale

We are delighted to offer this Home Market RHD Triumph TR5 PI onto the market. XLM 565G left the factory finished in Valencia Blue with Tan trim and Black hood, built on the 14th August 1968 and despatched on the 29th of the same month. The TR5 was supplied new with heater and overdrive, and was issued with the Greater London registration mark XLM 565G. Wimbledon based dealer L.F Dove Limited sold the car new on the 4th September 1968 to a Mr G Gurney of Surrey and we have the original service book containing the cars first two services, both by the supplying dealer at 1102 and 12421 miles.

XLM 565G also still retains its original ‘buff' logbook confirming the car spent three years with its first owner in Surrey. It would seem plausible the TR5 was taken back into stock by the supplying dealer as the second owner was local to L.F Dove Ltd on West Side Common in Wimbledon. In late 1972 its Wimbledon based owner moved to Newcastle Upon Tyne, taking the TR5 up to the North East where it has spent most of its life. Throughout the 1970's, large Scotland and North East dealership Rossleigh maintained the TR5 and a comprehensive file of receipts and invoices are still with the car.

In 2003 the TR5 PI was sold in need of major restoration having being off the road for many years. From 2003 to 2011, XLM 565G was completely rebuilt from the ground up to a truly exceptional standard. A photographic record confirms the TR5 was subject of a bare chassis rebuild and with the assistance of highly regarded specialists, the car was taken to show standard condition. The chassis was blasted and completely rebuilt, the bodyshell fully restored and the bare shell painted inside, outside and underneath, and the car then built up with perfect panel gaps. The TR was re-trimmed to a very high standard, all brightwork replaced or re-chromed, the boot area completed to show condition and the dashboard and dials completely re-furbished.

The Triumph was fully rebuilt mechanically with no expense spared. The engine was in a very poor state and was deemed unrepairable. A replacement 2.5 PI engine was sourced and fully rebuilt with new pistons, oil pump, timing chain, tensioner chain, new rocker shaft, oil seals, new valves etc all supplied by TR Shop London. The block was re-bored, the crankshaft polished and on build up new manifolds, injectors and Bosch fuel pump fitted to the car. Steering, brakes and suspension were rebuilt, gearbox and rear axle overhauled, coolant system renewed and all electrics replaced and renewed. Like the rest of the car, the engine bay was taken to show condition and since completion in 2011 the TR5 has covered 3000 faultless miles.

Eight years on since restoration, the TR5 still presents like a recently completed rebuild. There is no doubt this TR5 is in show condition, paintwork and bodywork are completely first class, panels are perfectly straight with excellent gaps and the underside is equally as impressive. The level of detail is superb with a beautiful engine bay, perfect spare wheel well and the interior has been trimmed to a superb high standard. The hood and cover are perfect, the correct style wheels are excellent and the car requires no cosmetic attention. On the road XLM 565G offers a brilliant driving experience. Its tight, holds the road perfectly and the engine is super fit holding excellent oil pressure and delivering impressive performance. The gearbox is super slick with perfect smooth changes, the overdrive comes in smoothly, the rear axle is lovely and quiet and the car feels absolutely right. This is a car with superb history dating back to new, has been kept as original and correct as possible, has been rebuilt to a first class standard and maintained and superbly kept since. With only 3000 miles since completion, this is effectively a fresh rebuild that has been nicely run in since and has to be one of the finest available in terms of condition and provenance.
