TRIUMPH TR2 HISTORIC RALLY CAR. THIS IS BY FAR THE MOST HISTORIC TR THAT I HAVE SOLD IN OVER 30 YEARS OF TRADING.
RHP 552 WAS USED AS A DEVELOPMENT CAR BY THE FACTORY AND THE CHASSIS NUMBER OF THIS CAR IS A CHANGE POINT WHEN CHASSIS MODIFICATIONS WERE MADE (ALONG WITH OTHER CHANGES). THIS DEVELOPMENT WORK WAS CARRIED OUT IN THE FACTORY ON THIS CAR. (MENTIONED IN BILL PIGGOTS BOOK “COLLECTORS ORIGINALITY GUIDE TRIUMPH TR2//3/4/5/6/7/8)
THE DEVELOPMENT ENGINEER AT TRIUMPH (DAVID O’CLAREY) THEN PURCHASED THE CAR FROM TRIUMPH IN 1956 AND VERY SUCCESSFULLY CAMPAIGNED IT IN MANY RALLIES.
THIS CAR THEREFORE CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS “ONE STEP AWAY” FROM A WORKS TR2.
THE CAR COMES COMPLETE WITH THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE HISTORY FILE THAT I HAVE EVEN SEEN (BILL PIGGOT SAID THE SAME!) IT IS SIMPLY STAGGERING - AND WILL TAKE SEVERAL HOURS TO VIEW.
IT IS A DOCUMENTATION OF A ENGINEERS LIFE AT STANDARD TRIUMPH. “PRE PUBLICATION” MANUALS AS WELL AS HIS RALLY TROPHIES, ALL COME WITH THE CAR. I CAN NOT EVEN BEGIN TO LIST THE AMOUNT OF DOCUMENTATION.
THE CAR HAS BEEN SUBJECT TO A BODY OFF CHASSIS RESTORATION AND NOW NEEDS COMPLETING. ALL NEW CARPETS AND TRIM ARE WITH THE CAR AS WELL AS TONS OF SPARES. THE ENGINE HAS BEEN FULLY RE-BUILT AND RUNS VERY WELL.
PART EXCHANGE CONSIDERED. IF YOU WISH TO CALL ABOUT THIS OUT OF HOURS (REASONABLE TIMES PLEASE!!) YOU CAN CALL ME ON the details below
