  1. Hi Roger, thank you for your help. I tried to send him a message, however it says that he cannot receive messages. @mike ellis, please allow me to attract your attention to my inquiry by linking you in this post.
  2. I am looking for the bracket which is mounted within the glovebox, to give support to the glove box lid. no 33 on this plate: https://www.moss-europe.co.uk/shop-by-model/triumph/tr2-4a/interior/dashboards-consoles/dashboard-tr2-3a-1953-62.html It's only available for LHD, but I need it for RHD. Any idea, where I can find it?
  3. Yesterday, PKV374 was sold for £ 258,750 at Silverstone Auctions !!! https://www.silverstoneauctions.com/events/2019-auctions/nec-classic-motor-show-sale-2019/nec-classic-motor-show-sale-saturday-9th-sunday-10th-november-2019/2pm-sunday-10th-november-cars/1955-triumph-tr2-pkv-374-the-ex-works-le-mans-24-hours
  4. Since I don't see any introduction sub forum here, I will use this thread to introduce my TR2. It is a late one (TS8431-O), produced on Sept 27, 1955. However, it took almost a year till the TR hit the road. It was first registered in London, on June 15, 1956. I bought this beautiful car half a year ago. The previous owner restored it by himself, which took about 3 years (1997-2000). He especially took care of originality. In the time I own the car, I added some rally equipment, the beautiful Marchall 662/672 spot lights (NOS!), brooklands with the special holders to use the existing mounting holes, a fire extinguisher, new tires, replayced the second rear silencer against the original straight (stainless steel) pipe (without silencer), ajusted the fit of the front bumper, and many other minor cosmetics. I myself am end-30, living in Germany, and previously owned a Spitfire Mk3. Now I am asking for your help. How can I find out more about the history of the car? According to the heritage certificate, it has originally been red, with grey trim and black hood. @Rupert Bayer has actually bought the car in July 1967 in the Norfolk Broads in bad condition (see: ) however it was gone before he had the chance to picked it up. I know, that it was again registered on September 26, 1968 in Bradwell Yammouth. (I have a logbook, starting at that date). Who was the previous owner(s)? What's the history of the car? Is there any chance to receive a copy of the original logbook or information from the DVLA? The trace of the car is lost in 1971, this is the last entry in the logbook I own. I then have a purchase contract of 1986, where a TR dealer in South Woodford, London sold it to a private person in Germany for £100. How and when did the TR dealer got the car? And I have another purchase contract beween a different private person, selling the car in 1996 to the previous owner, who restored it. What has happened in between? How can I find information to close the gaps between 1956-1968, 1971-1986 and 1986-1997?
  5. Hi Rupert, wow, I am so thrilled to read your post! I did lots of research about the history of my car, but I was unable to find any information before 1968. The car has been reregistered in Bradwell Yammouth in Sept 1968. Could you maybe tell me some about my car? I‘ll send you a pn.
  6. offtopic: Is there a photo thread in this forum, where I can see pictures of all you great cars?
  7. Maybe these are all minor things, but I realized the following aspects: roll over bar, rear mirror wind guard, brooklands, black wing beadings, letter type on number plates, I dont know about the egine compartment. That looks pretty unfamiliar to me, but I have to admit that I have never seen any historic photograph of a Works TR2 engine bay. At least, the owner did not give much about details: E.g. the battery wears lot of manufacturer stickers. I like to see the batterie cleaned black, with a LUCAS decal - but that is just my personal taste.
  8. How did you measure the sound level? It should be measured this way: Source: https://www.motorsportuk.org/assets/bb2018completelow-res.pdf I did that on my TR2, with a sound level measuring device (class 2), and achieved 97,6 dB(a). (Standard TR2 engine, manifold, exhaust setup, just one 24in silencer (without the later additional silencer)
  9. Thank you for the good advice. I have your book Original Triumph TR, which is just great! I found your mentioned book on Amazon and just bought a copy.
  10. Thank you very much for all your comments. I will probably give it a try - however early next year. Keep you updated.
  11. Looks great! What color will the trim be?
