Originally built in April 1947,this beautiful and sensitively restored Triumph was completed 18 years ago . The quality of the restoration is testament to the condition of this car today, and it is presented in true concourse condition. This car ,and the restoration , were featured in the June 2003 edition of Australian Classic Car magazine.

The 1800 and 2000 Triumph Roadsters were designed in the last years of WW2 and were the first new model really presented after the war.

Only 2501 Roadsters were manufactured across both models, and of these 286 found their way to Australian owners when new.

This car still finished in the original and desirable metallic Lumina Grey with a blue leather interior and black soft top.

This model , well known for featuring in the popular UK television series “Bergerac” ,and is possibly the world’s most compact Phaeton designed car, having two fully upholstered seats under a flip up second windscreen when in use. When closed the screen neatly blends in to the body profile.

The interior is well fitted out with a stylish polished timber dashboard and comprehensive instrumentation .

The 1800 is a willing performer and has a 4 speed column change, so fitted , as the 64 inch front seat could fit 3 occupants.

The body construction consists of a steel tube design with an Ash frame and the bodywork is steel except for the bonnet and boot lid which are aluminium.

When inspected closely, this Triumph never fails to disappoint, and the engine bay and rear cockpit area are both finished to the same exacting standard.
We cannot imagine a better example of the model existing . A comprehensive build history file is also included along with the original Drivers Handbook.
