We were recently informed about this car upon receiving the sad news that the owner needed to sell it for health reasons. Despite the car being regularly serviced and maintained, it had been parked in a barn for the best part of 7 years. With caution, we inspected the car and, as Barn Find described, there it was in all its glory – covered in dust and cat paw prints. Clearly, it had not seen a wet sponge in quite some time. But despite its sad appearance, the car started on the button and drove nicely confirming that there had been a regular level of care but not necessarily with warm water and a cloth. Following a two day (some 150 kilometers – with dust – test drive) we decided to simply present the car as it is. Once cleaned, we were quite surprised as to how good the car is, but will continue to prepare the car with some more detailing before photography can commence. The car comes with a host of interesting Triumph literature and includes a comprehensive history file with clear entries from all 5 owners since the cars arrival in Germany in the late 1980’s. It also underwent a full restoration in 1990 which was evident once we’d removed the dirt. The last owner was in charge for some 11 years but, as mentioned, due to illness has now decided to part. A recent valuation report placed the car with Condition 2- and a higher value than our asking price. All-in-all, this is a nice example that could be improved by the right person.
