1966 Triumph 2000 Mk1 with factory Borg-Warner Type 35 automatic transmission.

SOLD in June 2016 to a Texas resident who has a family history with this model. He first drove it from Pensacola to coastal North Carolina to visit family.  That trip was over 850 miles.  Then he will be returning to east Texas.

I had bought this Triumph for the family after my wife had our 1st baby because my Spitfire is a 2-seater therefore no room for baby! But I was not able to keep this car running well for a few years like I can my 1977 Triumph Spitfire. When we had a 2nd child, I had less time for work on my Triumphs. Later when the 2nd child was 2 1/2, my wife had an accident, was injured, so my Triumph time was zero for a long time while she recovered.

Improvements are: triple-core radiator, extra electric fan on radiator, electric fuel pump, NOS amber front turn lenses (original US spec was white), NOS left door lock (installed 2008), NOS ignition switch (installed May 2011), NOS trunk lock (installed May 2011), NOS license plate light lens. Radio replaced by previous owner: JVC w/ removable faceplate, hidden CD player slot behind the faceplate, speakers on the back dashboard and one above the radio.

The lenses and locks came from Mick Dolphin Triumph Spares in the UK.

Needed when sold: repair to speedometer cable gear in transmission (using GPS), repair to rust in body in a few places, a glove box.
