I had those style TR6 wheels/trims/hubs on my first Mallard TR250 I had back in PA & NY. It was sold - totaled from when I got T-Boned in Kingston NY to a guy who had some TR4's in Saugerties NY and I often wonder what happened to it. He mentioned taking the TR4 parts and repairing my TR250.
Unfortunately I don't have any Comm numbers from that car ...
There was also a small British Junkyard just north of Kingston on 9W - north (Ulster Ave) just north of Hwy 209 on the west side of 9W who had a full 2500 PI setup - another one I wonder about if it is still there, but that was far too long ago like 1977-1981.

I attached a phots of b4 and after ... b4 was when I getting to take it off the road and put a new frame under it, after was when it was t-boned.

Cheers!

It was a good thing no one was riding with me. It did put me in the hospital and then some diagnostics for a jostled brain - these days they call it PTSD ... probably never recovered because I bought another TR250!

Ha. definitely some sort of thought process damage. Not sure I could put another 2 or 3 years into another TR250. I'm still dealing with my 4 year project of my GT6.

Not sure who you're directing your question to Jerry. Mines Royal Blue. Why'd you part with your Red TR?

Hey Folks,

Been enjoying the 5/250 forum and I realized I didn't say hello on this thread...... After over two years, my mostly original (read ratty) car is coming along and I've put 3500 miles on it and have yet to reinstall the interior!

I'm having the engine rebuilt right now by Coventry Motor Works in Easton MD. Sandy Thompson and his sons are solid gold.

You will know me from miles away when you see two black racing stripes on a jasmine 250. Still need a name for my car. Maybe "Vespula." I'm planning to have it all ready by VTR this Summer is La Crosse.

I live west of Washington DC and I'm a member of Capitol Triumph Register. Cheers!

Andrew

I too recently acquired a TR250 project car. I towed it up from Florida end of last summer and have it pretty much disassembled. It is a complete car but requires a considerable amount of body work. I’ve been busy welding in new metal and just taking it one small job at a time. I’m anticipating this will be at least a 2 to 3 year total restoration. Car is currently BRG but I’ll be painting it back to it original Signal Red color.

Cheers
Doug

Nice find Doug. Looks in pretty good overall condition. Being a Florida car should help significantly. Lots of knowledge on this site. It took me slightly over 2 years to get mine back to great shape. That was 20 years ago but now she needs some refreshing which I'll be doing this summer. You'll have a beautiful car when finished.

Unfortunantly it also spent some time in upstate NY so I have lots of rust to contend with. Plan is to remove all the rust and bring it back to a like new condition. I have my work cut out for me but it’s doable and I’m excited about the prospects. I finished a frame off restoration of my 73 TR6 a year or so ago but I didn’t have this kind of rust to contend with.

Cheers
Doug

Oh well, you've done a TR6, you're far ahead of the game. The TR250 restoration will be fun and you know what needs to be done and what it will take. Yes, an upstate NY car will have it's rust issues.
