Lot details Registration No: BPO375G Chassis No: MB110830DL0 Mot Expiry: June 2018
Triumph's big Michelotti-penned Saloon was manufactured from 1963 to 1977. Of robust construction, it was quickly turned into a rally car, both by the Works team and private individuals. The most famous result was the 2nd/4th places of the 2.5PI version on the 1970 London To Mexico World Cup Rally, but plenty of other successes were achieved by both the 2000 and 2.5PI, spawning numerous evocations of which 'BPO 375G' is one. A 1969 model 2000, it is finished in 'Works' Blue, trimmed in Blue cloth and rides on Minilite-style wheels. The subject of an older restoration, it features a stage 1 tuned engine, stiffened and lowered suspension, period-style wing mirrors, and five auxiliary front lights. The vendor classes most aspects of the car as 'good', and believes the indicated mileage of 39,000 miles to be genuine, and is selling the Triumph complete with its original bumpers and an MOT valid to June 14, 2018.
