Hi all
I have been on this list for a long time and there is not much going on.
Other listings I use are

(email redacted)

(email redacted)

All have one thing in common, not much is sent.

Mike.
I own seven 2000's three estates four saloons.



Hi there all, firstly thanks very much for all your responses. I contacted a
guy called mjb from the list admin as I have not had an email from the list
for months, at least, so thought something was wrong .......... anyway
decided to send a post and its seems OK from your responses. I guess maybe
there was just no mail. Although all the responses seemed to be from your
personal emails and not the list but maybe that's how you posted them.

Just a little about myself and my cars - I live in Sydney Australia
(North/Western Suburbs).....

1. 69 Mk1 PI Saloon Auto (Yellow)
2. 69 Mk1 PI Saloon Overdrive TR6 Cam (White)
3. 71 Mk2 PI Saloon Auto (White)
4. 77 2500S Overdrive (Red)
5. 76 Stag Auto (Maroon)

So I basically qualify as some sort of PI nut therefore - I love these
engines.

I follow the Stag digest and 6-pack digest(due to technical similarities)
but wanted to share more experiences with the saloon so was wondering where
all the discussions have gone. I'd love a TR6 if they weren't so damn
expensive.

I have heard most of your names whilst I've been following the marquee and
the lists over the years - I had my first Triumph a 69PI Mk1 4 speed manual
when I was 18 and now 54 years old. Egil, I have read your expansive
writings on injection and enjoyed that immensely... hope I have the right
man here.

Anyway so that's a bit about me - it's a pity there is not much happening on
the Saloons on the list.

I guess, being late at night now I can't think of much to say but probably
post some stuff over the next few days.

I drive all my cars as much as possible - you could say they are all nearly
daily drivers if there was only enough days for that to be possible.

Anyway look forward to sharing some more posts - if there is another forum
that you guys are aware of please let me know.

Regards
Joe Santamaria

Hi there,

This is a short message from the other site of the world, The Netherlands. I
own a 73 2500PI and a 76 2500TC. There is not much going in the 2000register
of autox.team.net.
I also own TR6c which as you know shares a lot off hardware with the 2500.
The sixpack on autox on the other hand is very active.
In the past I already tried to boost the 2000register, but ...

If you have news or questions: share it.

Kind regards

Dinant Kroezen

Well, let's change things! :-)

I have a 2000 Mk. I Estate (refurbishment blog at 2000estate.blogspot.com) and a sedan as well. Located in North Carolina, USA.

Other Triumphs include a street TR6, race TR6 (riffrafracing.blogspot.com, Spitfire Mk. II, Italia 2000GT and a 1956 Standard Vanguard Sportsman.

Yeah, I've got it bad... :-)

Love to talk 2000!

Jamie

Jamie and Mike and others, I guess from your posts you are both USA based.

I have a question. What range of Triumph Saloons were exported to the
USA.???

I never realized there was any but from your collections I'm thinking they
must have.

I noticed you are all referring to 2000 range so can I assume there were no
2500cc cars as in Mk2 series.

My collection are all 2500's mostly injected. Were there any injected
saloons sold in USA (Mk1 or Mk2).???

My Triumph disease actually was my mums fault as she owned a 1971 Mk2 2000
way back at my impressionable age of 16 years - from then I had to have one.
I remember that thing revved very smoothly - more so than the longer stroke
2500 - but I always complained to my parents about why they didn't buy the
PI so I bought my own, albeit some years later and alas not brand new like
theirs. Re how it revved - just goes to show you should not let your teenage
sons borrow your new cars - I have remembered this for my sons however.

Anyway, good to hear from many of the members - can't think of much more
interesting to say at the moment ... at some time I would like to talk about
performance enhancements you may have all done - engine/suspension.

One of my cars, 2500PI Mk1 69 overdrive, was converted by previous owner to
TR6 cam with injection - not sure if he got it quite right as I'm sure it
should go a little better than it does - maybe more on that later.

Another thing I would like to do is post some photos but excuse my ignorance
but don't know the best way to go about this using the list or otherwise.

Cheers,
Joe

Joe, here's the list (post-war, anyway):

Small numbers of Ph. 1 Vanguards and Renowns made their way over here, but not many.
The Mayflower was designed for the US but was a dismal failure over here.
I own the single Vanguard Sportsman that was supposed to replace the Renown but was never launched here...shown at the '56 New York Auto Show but never introduced.
Standard-Triumph got more serious with the 10; it was sold over here as a Triumph 10 rather than a Standard 10, both sedans and estates were sold, although not too many.
Next up was the Herald, sold mainly as a convertible over here, and we also got a version of the Mk. I Vitesse 1600, again mostly convertibles, sold over here as the Triumph Sports 6. I'm not saying Heralds are common, but they are probably the most plentiful Triumph sedan on this side of the pond.

In '65-'66-'67, Triumph imported just over 1800 2000 Mk. I sedans. Not a success; too expensive vs. American v-8's, etc. That was their final attempt at bringing over a family car.

All others are private imports; my Estate was special ordered for US use from Triumph of Ireland (Eire), and my sedan was also special ordered, picked up in Coventry and driven on the continent for about a year and a half and then shipped back to the US.

We didn't get any PI's (heck, we didn't get any TR6 PI's either!) or Mk.II's...or Dolemites/Toledos/etc...

I am putting a TR6 engine/OD tranny (but the OD is from a 2000) into the Estate, as the BW35 and original engine were toast and I don't like automatics anyway...

You can see my blog on the refurbishment at 2000estate.blogspot.com

Hope this helps! Great to hear from you!

Jamie

Jamie - great history lesson on the USA imports so thanks for that - you've
been quite "the ambassador" for the non Stag/TR line of the marquee over
there from what I can see.

BTW - good to see some action on the list - I better keep my rantings and
posts a little shorter than the last history lesson on my son - sorry about
that, but was a good tale to tell if not only to check that under throttle
pedal plunger.

Regards
Joe
