The 1968 Triumph TR5 is an iconic British sports car that seamlessly blends timeless design with exhilarating performance. Powered by a 2.5 litre inline-six engine, it delivers 150 horsepower, offering a thrilling driving experience. Its distinctive Michelotti-penned bodywork features flowing lines and a classic British roadster profile, capturing the essence of the era's automotive style. The TR5's independent rear suspension contributes to its agile handling, while the overdrive-equipped gearbox enhances highway cruising. As a limited-production model, the TR5 stands as a coveted collector's item, encapsulating the spirit of 1960s British motoring and captivating enthusiasts with its elegance and dynamism.
This stunning TR5 was originally registered in September 1968 and has been owned by our enthusiast vendor since 2015. During his tenure, this impeccable Triumph has benefitted from a comprehensive nut and bolt restoration. A photographic record of the works completed can be found in the history file that accompanies the car. This wonderful TR5 presents perfectly in Jasmine Yellow coachwork with a contrasting interior. The engine bay is unsurprisingly immaculate in what is one of the finest examples of the model that we have seen. It was no surprise therefore that the car fired up on request and ran well. Given the wonderful condition of this example and the popularity of the model, this Triumph appears to be sensibly reserved and certainly warrants investigation.
