A wonderful example of a well presented “useable” Swallow Doretti.

A rare car from the outset with just 276 cars produced from 1954 to 1955 utilising the underpinnings And power train of a Triumph TR2!

This particular example is car number 211 and was originally registered in Scotland as NGG533. It has been in its current ownership since August 1998 when it was purchased out of the very well known Duncan Rabaglieti car Collection as a 4/5’s finished restoration project by an active enthusiast within the Doretti circles. Upon purchase the car was taken straight to T&M classics in Thame who then put the car back onto the road.

Ever since then car has been actively used for touring (visiting Le Mans classic In 2008,2010,2012,2014) To name but a few trips while returning great performance and 100% reliability !

The engine has seemingly been “tweaked” As it revs much more freely than a standard car and is noticeably nippier than a standard car suggesting a reworked cylinder head and a light bed and balanced crank.

The interior is lovely - presented with the original recovered seats and re-trimmed panels and carpets carried out by Alan greater who also made and fitted the tonneau cover too.

The chassis is in fantastic condition sporting a regularly maintained suspension and braking system to ensure the best driving experience possible. As a result the feedback from the car doesn’t disappoint. It starts “on the button” every time and provides a Cheshire Cat smile in equal measures !

The body is very nice but with some slight room for improvement cosmetically. The paintwork is over 20 years old now and so in areas it can be improved if perfection is required however it is more than presentable as it is!

A great, rare, usable classic Ready to go! All of our cars are inspected and serviced by TR Enterprises “subject to sale agreement” to ensure a “ trouble free” experience.
