I just stumbled across this Forum a few days ago, not sure why I did not know of it.

Here is my TR250, CD8138L !

All Original, completely rust free, numbers matching car. I am the 3rd owner, 2nd owner had it for 37 years in Wyoming.

BTW, anyone know of a guy in Saugerties NY who has/had a collection of Triumphs?
I sold him my totaled ( t-boned) TR250 in 1981 and would like to track it down to match up some Commission numbers to some old photos.

Cheers!

Very nice Glenn! You have one of the later ones it appears. If you recall the Vin# of the one you sold in NY you might post it here, or the six-pack forum. You might get lucky.

Rick,
Thanks. This one is in very good original condition. I thought it was odd it does not have the front sway bar like the later ones got.

I always thought the later ones had front sway bars - my first one back in the 1970's did as stock.
I bought that first one in 1972 with less than 36k miles for $1600 from a Ford Dealership in Malvern PA - sales guy took it on trade and was good friends with my folks.

And I added a TR6 OD transmission to it and drove it as my daily driver until April 1981 when I got t-boned in Kingston NY. I had over 160k miles on it and was going to put a new frame under it.

Unfortunately I do not have the commission number for that TR250, I am sure I did not save any paperwork for it.

This latest TR250 still has the OE bumblebee hoses.

Cheers!

I've had my 250 for almost 20 years. Paid $8,000 for it back then and drove it home and used it for 6 years before I tore it apart and redid it. Now 14 years later it's still in the shape from 2003 after the restoration. I just drive it and if it breaks (not often) I fix it and drive it some more. Our club (BC Triumph Registry) has about 6 or 7 250 in it and 2 TR5's.
Paul

Beautiful TR250 Paul. I've had similar experiences. I've had my TR for 20 years now. Did a full restoration on it back then. It's been a very reliable car. I've put about 35k miles on it over those years. Now it just needs some paint refreshing and I'll do that next summer. Seems to be a fair amount of 250's on the west coasts. I just went to a decent car show with 202 British cars and there were only 2 TR250's there. Rarely see them out driving around.
