British Classic needs a home.

Post by tim leech » Mon Apr 10, 2006 5:01 pm

I know its not a BX but does anyone fancy giving a british classic a good home? Im thinking my 1973 Triumph 2000 is going to take more time than I currently have spare.

The bodys in very good condition (except for the drivers sill/ front valence which is needs welding or replacing) the interior is excellent, the 6 cyliner engine starts easily/burns NO oil and moves forward and backward when I bleed the clutch again! The chrome also is good for its age, it has 4 old but unsued tyres fitted, its showing 26000miles but I dont know how genuine it is. The brakes are in need of work (as they dont!) but I will supply new shoes and rear cylinder repair kits and a brand new centre exhaust too!

The only other things I can see it needing are bulbs and a service. Shes been off the road garaged since 1983 but does have a new logbook and a few spares/and 3 owners manuals!, the car is completly original down to its 1983 tax disc/ jack and tools and period radio and to be fair looks very handsome in its dark blue paint.


It will need trailering though as it has no mot and of course the brakes dont work.

Im only looking for about £300 ONO as I need the space for my BX/Xantia!
Any interested parties let me know.

Is this a Triumph 2000 MK1 or MK2? The difference is the front end. Does it have the later stag-style headlamps/grille, or the earlier single headlamps with indicators below?

My father bought a 2000 MK1 in blue brand new in 1972, and if this is a similar model, then it might have to be restored as a retirement present for him.
this might be a signature

I think `73 will make it a Mk2 David. BTW Tim, if I had the time and money I`d love to have the car. Doesn`t sound like a massive job to get it up and running/MOT`d again and a British classic is certainly is.

Its definatly a MK2 matey and as Cavmad says doesnt need much work really, most of the parts you need come with the car. I may end up doing it up myself if I get the time to do it. It so mechanically simple even I can manage the oily bits!

Yes but sadly I have had a rather odd email from a banger racer saying that if he wins it he WILL race it! Oh no he wont cos I wont sell it to him the scroat!

Anyone know if you can refuse to sell a item?

It`ll just be another tosser with nothing better to do than annoy people on eBay. I doubt you could refuse to sell it to someone but you could add him to your blocked bidder`s list.
