  • Displaying a credible, but unwarranted, 43,000 miles
  • Upgraded with SU carburettors
  • Showing just four former keepers on HPI
  • Attractive colour combination

The Triumph 2000 was produced in Coventry and used the six-cylinder engine first seen in the Standard Vanguard at the end of 1960. It was mated to a four-speed manual gearbox with servo-assisted brakes. Triumph's 2000 competed with the contemporary Rover P6 2000 which initially was offered only with a four-cylinder engine but the Triumph promised new levels of comfort and luxury hitherto associated with larger Rover and Jaguar models with lower running costs and purchase prices, all in a modern package.

Manufactured in 1968, this 2000 is finished in the attractive colour combination of Red with a Black interior. With a recorded and credible (but unwarranted) mileage of just c.43,000 miles, ‘VMF 244G’ is showing just four former keepers on HPI. Powered by the 2.0-litre straight-six engine, mated to the manual gearbox, the Triumph has been uprated with SU carburettors and has also recently been shod with new tyres and is said to ‘drive very well’. Offered with V5C document.
