    Triumph 2500S

    SOLD



    I think it's time for me to sell this one on. It's a 1978 Triumph 2500S manual/overdrive in good original condition. Has all the bits for aircon, but it's not working. Lots of original paint, though it's in pretty poor condition. There's basically no rust, just a few bubbles in the bottom of the driver's door AFAIK. I replaced the master and wheel cylinders, and a heap of rubber engine bay hoses about 18 months ago. It runs really rich and the viscous fan hub is noisy when cold, but otherwise it runs/drives/etc, is currently on a 60 day permit but I haven't had time to drive it
    Located near Hornsby.
    Only advertised here, cause I don't want to deal with Gumtree fuckwits.

    Tempting, I had about 6 Triumphs over the years and they are a very nice thing to drive. Do I want to go back and fix cars? AC was a factory option on the last of them.

    I've taken this out and about a few times now.

    The good
    It drives quite well for an old thing. Goes well, gearbag and clutch work very nicely, stops, steers, etc. Still virtually* no rust. New radiator hoses fitted. Now has a heap of spare bits like a dash, wood, lights, included with the sale.

    The bad
    I replaced the viscous fan hub with a good secondhand one and that made the noise worse, so that needs to be fixed still. I left it idling before I took it out today and fouled the plugs It now puffs a bit of smoke at idle, particularly when cold. Might need rings, might just need an Italian tune up. *Now has rust showing in the bottom plate of the left front rail, from where the A/C drain puddles with no drain hole. It's a flat plate with plenty of access so should be an easy fix. Since I've driven it, the tyres have started cracking.

    Anyway, ragequit cause of the fouled plugs. $sold for PF cunts.

    Do you reckon it would drive to Adelaide? If so, I have your grand right here. If I transfer the cash how long could you store it until I could get over to pick it up?

    Jon, even with a set of tyres, I don't think it would make it to Adelaide. I don't know what would stop it, but I think something would.

    Sloth, with the way Border Force have been going full retard lately, I doubt you'd get the car to the UK for $10k. You'd need to strip all the asbestos first and roll the dice...

    Time for some terrible flash photography!
    The rust in the bottom plate of the left front rail, behind the castor rod. Normally due to the A/C condensate drain being plumbed into the closed box section. Good work there British Leyland. It's by far the worst of any rust in the car.

    Driver's side sill, it has a patch welded into the front ~18 inches or so. Not the prettiest thing in the world, if you get down on the ground to look at it, but it's metal not bog.

    It was the Australians who designed and put the AC in at AMI who built the cars CKD in Melbourne. The Poms had nothing to do with it.
