This right-hand drive 'home market' example is certainly appealingly presented in the combination of Deep Metallic Blue bodywork and Beige interior trim. It drives through the optional automatic transmission and rides on a gleaming new set of chrome wire wheels. Other obvious non-standard fitments include a chromed luggage rack and picnic basket, and aftermarket fly screen, while beneath the bonnet lies a second radiator for optimal cooling. 'VLL 729M' was apparently dispatched new to Henley's of London on May 15th 1974, since when its odometer indicates it to have covered 113,785 miles. The vendor informs us that it was treated to a restoration in c.2002 and describes the Triumph as 'a much loved example' which is offered with freshly painted hard top, tonneau covers, original handbook, workshop manual and aftermarket parts catalogue, large collection of photos, including ones of the restoration; Heritage Certificate; and numerous old invoices, MOTs and tax discs plus a fresh MOT by the time of sale.
