Description for Triumph TR250 1968

I have decided to sell my TR250 as a project car. I have owned this car for over 11 years. I bought it as a complete not running car as seen in the 1st photos. It was partially disassembled but very complete. It comes now as shown with original running gear all rebuilt and assembled back into the completely restored frame. Almost every part of this car is rebuilt, new, NOS or original with very little (if anything) missing. The body still needs finishing but all needed panels are included. I started on the left rear replacing the inner fender, outer fender including forward and rear extensions and center deck panel. The right rear needs the same done to it and all those parts are included. The floors and rockers need attention and again, those parts are also included. The car was not a rust bucket but does have rust in the usual spots. The floors and rockers are not terrible and I planned on doing a partial replacement, again, all parts are included. The original front fenders are near perfect. The original hood and trunk lid are perfect! All still in their #56 Royal Blue-Silver hood stripe still there! The original trunk, front valance, rear valance and doors are also nice needing only re-finishing and paint! A qualified body man could finish the bodywork and paint for 7-10 grand, depending on who you choose. a good shop here in Louisville quoted me $12,000 to complete the body with my supplied parts, but that was before I started on it myself. A good hobbyist that could do his own work would greatly lower the price! As for the drive train; the original block and head was rebuilt to standard specs. I have the receipt showing all work done to the motor-over $3000 alone! The flywheel was machined and new Borg & Beck clutch & T/O bearing installed. The local reputable Bell Motor Service did all of the machine work. The original 4 speed was inspected and only needed front & rear seals. The original differential was cleaned inside & out with new rear gasket and new axle and pinion seals installed. All other chassis and suspension parts are new or rebuilt with no exception including all hydraulics, front calipers, rear cylinders, new brake shoes, pads, rotors etc. Also as shown, comes with Goodyear 800 redline tires that have excellent tread (very rare) ! I have pics of anything not shown and receipts total over $15 grand!!! Not shown but included; new front and rear bumpers complete with bumperettes and new install hardware from TRF. Also not shown NOS front side markers. Again, a lot not shown but will be included-just call with any concerns. Nothing major is missing-99% complete!!! This will be a $30,000 car if finished correctly! I have many hours of labor in this car, but I would like to just recover close to my parts costs. I'm only selling because I just cannot find the time to finish as I have 4 other project cars and at 67 years old, not enough birthdays to finish them all! Thanks for looking!
