For sale 1968 Triumph TR250 in the colour Triumph Racing Green with a black leather interior with a white trim. In the 1990s, this TR250 was imported from California to the Netherlands. A Heritage certificate is available which shows; the chassis number CD / 6918-L and matching engine number CC / 6832-E plus that this TR250 was delivered new in California in this original colour combination.

In 1967 the Triumph TR5 was introduced as a successor to the Triumph TR4a IRS and it was equipped with a six-cylinder in-line engine with a mechanical Lucas injection system. In terms of power, the TR4 was no longer able to cope with the six-cylinder engines from MG, Porsche and Datsun with which they had to compete in the American market. The design of the TR4 and the TR250 were almost the same.

The TR5 with the Lucas injection system did not meet the increasingly stringent American emission requirements and that is why the TR250 was built for the American market. This was supplied with a slightly tempered engine and two Stromberg Carburettors. In 1968, only 2.947 TR5 cars were built and 8.484 TR250. Due to this small number, the TR250 is a very much-loved Triumph.

This TR250 was fully restored in the Netherlands in the late 1990s and the first Dutch owner owned the car for 26 years. According to the available documents, this Triumph has driven in total 69.964 miles. The paint is in a very good condition and the car drives very well. The MOT is valid until November 17, 2021.

The following options are fitted, 15 inch chrome wire wheels, chrome wing nuts, chrome valve cover, Leccara wooden sports steering wheel, hood cover, 123 electronic ignition, aluminium tank and an original Triumph radio.
