Lot 380 - 1966 Triumph 2000 Mk. I
|Registration||Bill of sale|
|Result||Sold - £10,640|
- Part of ‘The Ghent Collection’
- Offered without reserve
The Triumph 2000 was produced in Coventry and used the six-cylinder engine first seen in the Standard Vanguard at the end of 1960. It was mated to a four-speed manual gearbox with servo-assisted brakes. Triumph's 2000 competed with the contemporary Rover P6 2000 which initially was offered only with a four-cylinder engine but the Triumph promised new levels of comfort and luxury hitherto associated with larger Rover and Jaguar models with lower running costs and purchase prices, all in a modern package.
This example represents another classic British motorcar forming part of the Ghent Collection. It has clearly been restored at some point as the gleaming white paintwork and contrasting black roof presents in very good condition throughout. The quality reflects that generally of ‘Hurst Park’ vehicles in fact; a classic car dealer synonymous with quality and whose sticker can be found in the rear windscreen. There is minor corrosion however on the offside door sill but the interior upholstery and wood surrounds are both in good order, a battery cut-off and power-steering has been retrofitted and a workshop manual is also included. The extensive history file includes MoT test certificates, a well-documented service history and general maintenance documentation throughout its entire life. It was an award-winner on the Meguiar’s stand in 2006 and still an excellent example.
