Funny that no one mentioned this


Recommended Posts

Apparently TS2 was 68yrs old yesterday as announced by the register on FB. However no one bothered to mention it on here

Is the air intake mouth on that car a wee bit bigger than that of the production tr2?

Are you talking about TS 2 or about the black TR2 in the photo ?

Question about the large mouth was with reference to TS2. It looks to me as if it might gape just that little bit taller than the average TR2: https://www.classicandsportscar.com/news/general-classic-car-news/historic-triumph-to-star-at-fairclough-hall-farm

I saw MVC575 the other day and noticed it has an air intake grill I've never seen on any other TR. Seems like the air intake was something they were still playing around with back in the early days, which comes as no surprise since they were... the early days.

like the chrome trim around the wheel spat, very nice, might just do it to mine, make them stand out a bit more, doubt any one will make a fuss about the TSR2 birthday either.

No insult intended, just I don't 'do' facebook, or twitter etc.

Regarding the mouth on TS2, I recall Wayne mentioning there was a difference when TS2 and MAW333 were side by side.....

You will recall thatTS1 and TS2 were not built on the production line - perhaps that accounts for the possible difference in mouths?

There are various differences in the shells of very early cars as they were built offline.
