always have a selection of cars for sale which need work doing before they are
road ready. One of these cars may be useful to you if you are a spannerman and
wish to embark on a new project, or need a parts source for your own
restoration. They all need plenty of work to put back on the road. They are usually
either accident damaged, or heavily corroded, or part-restorations where the
previous owner has given up (usually lack of time/ability/inclination/storage
etc). Please be advised that although these cars may well run, and may even be MOT'd, in all instances they are not road-legal and will need
a great deal of work to become so.
note that we never have TR2-4s for sale as projects as we always repair these
ourselves (if repairable)
pictures opposite may not be of currently available cars at this moment (we

see what you want? Then we can send you an email when we have in stock a car
you are interested in. This may enable you to see the car before the details
are posted on this web page.
replies to frequently-asked questions:
I buy one of your project cars...
Will you be able to supply me any parts I need? Yes certainly - in the
event we don't have it in stock then we can acquire it for you in 99% of
you be able to do me a deal on some of the new parts I know I'm going to need?
Yes, but please don't expect too much, some Triumph parts, especially
panels, have very low margins.
you be able to do some bits of the repair work I can't do? Yes indeed and we
can usually price this for you before you buy.
you be able to restore the car to my specification (I want it in blue with a
red stripe, blue mohair hood, wire wheels, overdrive, sports exhaust, rear
seatbelts etc)? Yes of course, we do this all the time, one of the
advantages of doing it this way is you get to own the car the way you like
you fully restore it do you think I can then sell it and make a good profit?
No unfortunately not. If you sell a car immediately after we have finished
it for you, you will not (unless you are very lucky) recoup your investment.
If this was the case then that is all we would be doing for ourselves and
would never be open for customer's cars
restore it myself do you think I can then sell it and make a good profit?
Probably, if you have done a good job, you should certainly be able to recoup the purchase
and parts cost, maybe even earn a little.
Can you send some photos and a
description of a car I am interested in...
Please can you send me a
picture and a detailed description of what we think is good or bad about the
car. No sorry we cant email pictures because 1) A general picture of the
car wont really show you what the car is like, how rusty, how poor the paint
etc.2) Detailed pictures of the rusty areas (of which there are likely to be
a multitude) dont really help either, and we may well miss several important
areas where we didnt see the rust causing you to feel you have been mislead.
Unfortunately you really need to pay a visit and see the car, I know this is
inconvenient and you dont want to waste your time, but we dont want to waste
your time by sending you pics that when you visit you feel is not
representative of the car....any car you are interested in needs seeing in
the flesh where you will be left alone to peruse and prod away for yourself.
seen one of your cars once already and I'm considering buying it....
you reduce the price as it's been a few months and you've got to get rid of it
sometime? No, sorry. When it has been around a while and noone wants it then
we would dismantle it for spares. This can be sad sometimes for a car that
is reusable which is why we try to sell them as they are, but as a business
we do need to make a profit and we cant keep every car that noone wants to
buy indefinitely. These used spares help keep other people's cars on the
the car in exactly the same state as it was when I looked at it X days/weeks
ago? Quite possibly not. Many used parts are racked, but if we need
something that isn't racked for a customer then we will remove it from a car
in the yard rather than turn them away. We would therefore require you to take a second look before you
purchase as we may not be able to remember what was on the car when you
looked at it and what has been removed since.
you able to deliver it? Yes we have a car transporter.
