Is this the Best ever restored TR5

Recommended Posts

for everybody Ian sold the car to Germany in 1982 where it was looked after by a enthusiast who used the car sparingly , the enthusiast facilitated the purchase by myself and I repatriated the car late last year, it is extremely original with a documented low mileage

Graham,

your TR5 is much more attractive to me:)
An old Unrestored TR250/5 is very nice, a pity they are becoming rarer.

Cheers,
Waldi

Waldi thank you ! its a shame they stopped doing the 'wooden spoon' at the international as I'm pretty sure with a little work and a BIG hammer I could get it through an MOT, always remember a TR5 turning up at an international one year with a road sign riveted to the boot lid, sure it scooped the honours that year as well.

Hi Graham,
let’s agree to agree:)

I’be been on a famous Dutch festival (Paleis het Loo Concours d’elegance), my dear friend Bas who passed away last attended  with his 1938 Jaguar SS, unrestored but running. I liked that “pile of old garbage” lined up side by side the most.

Cheers,

Waldi

It didn't sell, highest bid was £70,000. Suspect reserve might have been £75,000 following comments from auctioneer.

I'd say £70k was a very good bid. Wouldn't that be the record price for a TR5 - or pretty close? I looked through the auction lots and most seemed to have optimistic estimates on them especially considering all the uncertainty about ICE driven cars and that we're entering the biggest recession in history.
