Interesting cars, especially to Triumph fans.  Neat upscale bodies but a lot more car to move around than a TC, I think that has kept values fairly low relative to rarity.  I have seen a few over the years but only maybe one in concours condition.

The yellow does not do it any favors.  Complicated wood structure in the body. Slightly Awkward looking in person. A mild performer . But quite a bit of British charm. Not high on my list of cars to buy, but I do enjoy seeing them at Field Meets.

The posted car looks like its about 4 xs the asking price to make it show worthy.

I think that ratio applies to most CL “easy projects.” 😀


I like it!  I’ve never seen one in person but I’ve been intrigued by these before.  Sounds like you get a lot of spares thrown in, which is great if you can get it all home and if you have a place to store it. I’d probably check it out, even if it’s just to see one up close.
