on offer today is a rare opportunity to acquire a very early example of the marque with a triumph factory chassis. With the chassis number ts152, this car was manufactured on the 30th november 1953 as stated on the british motor industry heritage trust certificate and is a uk home market righthand drive model. Specified with the interior trim as grey (leather) this tr also has the rare and unusual wicker trim (sometimes known as 'metric') that was fitted to only very early tr2s and again on early tr3s. Having an essex registration number, it is interesting to note that according to a letter from bill piggott (triumph tr historian) that this car was the first tr to be registered in essex on the 12th december 1953. originally black, this car at some period within its life was re-painted in white; However, during restoration works between 2001/ 2 the original black coachwork was reinstated as may be seen by the photographic record within the history file. This restoration was carried out by the respected company pollandines of frinton, essex. There are also a large amount of bills regarding mechanical work including the engine and trim; In fact the history file is one of the most comprehensive seen in a long while. Accompanying the car is a first edition 'triumph sports car instruction book' for the tr2 from 1953-4 priced at five shillings. There is also a first edition workshop manual as well as a useful tr2 & 3 lubrication chart and the original buff log book. The remains of the original chassis plate may also be found within the file. There is a tool kit that includes a starting handle, tyre pump, wheel brace, boot key and the ultra rare long shaft vehicle jack that is not only rare but was also only found on early cars. Also fitted to the car are the early and rare square type rear lights. A vehicle inspection report by classic car inspections dated 14th october 2002 reports; "The subject car is well within the top 10 cars i've reported".
today xtw 191 looks very handsome with straight black coachwork with contrasting grey trim and classic disc wheels. On closer inspection you may see how strong the restoration has been because this car is still in excellent condition ten years after restoration. With prices of trs and especially early cars of the marque strengthening, this must be a truly ideal opportunity for the real enthusiast and collector, especially with such an attractive estimate. An mot certificate and road fund licence means that the lucky new owner of this rare, early tr2 may enjoy her immediately.

Vi è poi un kit di strumenti che comprende una leva per l'avviamento esterno che non solo è rara, ma era fornita solo con i primi modelli prodotti, una pompa per gonfiaggio pneumatici. Sulla vetture sono montate le luci posteriori il tipo quadrato prime e rare cosi come i cerchi ormai introvabili. Un rapporto di controllo del veicolo effettuato da “classic car inspections” del 14 ottobre 2002 riporta che “la vettura oggetto della verifica è una delle migliori 10 auto da noi verificata”. un pezzo da collezione che può partecipare alla prossima mille miglia a cui ha già preso parte nel 2013.
