Current BaT Auctions
This 1968 Triumph TR250 was acquired by the current owner in 2004 and is powered by a replacement 2.5-liter inline-six paired with a Toyota five-speed manual transmission. The car is finished in Signal Red over black upholstery and is equipped with 15″ Panasport wheels, side mirrors, a luggage rack, a Moto-Lita steering wheel, a heater, an AM/FM radio, and a black soft top. Service history includes instrument repairs in 2018 and a replacement wood dashboard panel installed in 2020. This TR250 is now offered by the seller on behalf of the current owner with service records, a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate, a spare steering wheel, a convertible top boot, a tonneau cover, and a clean California title.
The body was originally finished in Signal Red, was previously refinished in yellow, and was repainted in its current red under prior ownership. Exterior elements include door-mounted side mirrors, dual exhaust finishers, a luggage rack, and bright trim on the grille, fenders, doors, and rocker panels. The soft top is shown raised in the gallery below, and a portion of patched material is noted behind the driver’s door window. A tonneau cover and a top boot will also accompany the car.
Panasport 15″ wheels wear 205/65 Uniroyal Tiger Paw tires that were mounted in 2017. Stopping power is provided by front discs and rear drums.
The interior features low-back bucket seats upholstered in black with white piping accompanied by a black dashboard pad, door panels, and carpets. The wood dashboard panel was fitted in 2020. Additional interior features include a wooden shift knob, a heater, and an AM/FM radio.
The three-spoke Moto-Lita steering wheel frames Smiths instrumentation that includes a 140-mph speedometer and a tachometer that were repaired in 2018 by West Valley Instrument Specialists of Reseda, California, at which time the speedometer was recalibrated for the car’s replacement transmission. The five-digit odometer shows 72k miles, approximately 1k of which were added under current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.
The 2.5-liter inline-six is a replacement unit believed to be sourced from a 1969 TR6 and was reportedly rebuilt under previous ownership. A Derale Performance electric cooling fan is installed. The engine bay was inspected and fluids were checked by Sierra Classic Sportscar of Meadow Vista, California, in April 2022.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a Toyota-sourced five-speed manual transmission that was installed under prior ownership with an HVDA kit. A replacement exhaust system is also fitted.
The laminated British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate lists factory colors and equipment as well as initial delivery to Leyland Motor Corporation of North America in Los Angeles, California.
Service records and sales documentation since the mid-1990s are included in the sale.
